comment i7 overclocking problem
apparently. its definately not the one i returned to them as the one i returned wouldnt boot full stop - powered on for a few seconds then went into a restart loop. theyve said that its a manufactur fault that had caused a section of it to overheat. i dunno, this all started at the beginning of December and I'm still trying to sort the issue out.

I see your sentiment but the point here is that a specialist provided the bundle of the processor, RAM, motherboard and cooler preoverclocked to 4GHz. I had to return the board to them in december as it had a manufacturing fault.Since then the replacement is not performing as it should. I know these speeds are possible.

comment Video has become blurred and smoothed out?
i think ive reinstalled DivX as part of the process of trying to fix this. The only notable thing that I'd done just before this problem occured was install Fallout New Vegas on the machine :-(

comment Video has become blurred and smoothed out?
I've also just noticed that the problem seems to be mainly in Windows Media Player. Its annoying as I prefer to use that for quickly opening videos. In DivX player and VLC things look fine - I dont want to have to use these though all the time and the change seems to have happened just recently. Any ideas?

The issue is definately with the overclocking as it boots without the overclock. I have just one video card, a Sapphire HD 5770 Vapor-X 1GB Graphics card. Not sure of the voltage but it is in a pct slot and is wired in with a 6pin PCI power cable from the power supply.
