im quite frustrated as well. for some odd reason, my once stable 280HTT overclock has been giving errors like crazy. i had to drop down the HTT to 275 but at least now, i have my ram rock stable, 31 passes error-free @ 247mhz 2-2-2-6 3.3v. im going to the amd tech tour coming up and im gonna pick up the 3200+ bundle and selling off the unneeded mb and os. just wanna see what the 3200+ venice can do in my board.
