quake 4 problems
Just got my swiftech water cooler set up on my X2 4400 and zalman vf900cu air cooler on my 7800 GT and i'm having a few problems. I also removed the zalman chipset cooler i had on there to tweak the pins because one was alittle crooked.
I've been using the begining of quake 4 as a bench, i play up untill you get the medic to the front and you meet the sharpshooter, about 5 to 10 minutes into it. If it crashes before that point i know somethings wrong if it doesn't then it's all good.
It started crashing about 2 minutes into it but my temps are all fine at load.
I then turned off the multi cpu rendering in the video options because i noticed when i turned it on the game crashed.
I restart the game and then play thru the 5 to 10 minutes without a hitch...
My question is that is the multi cpu rendering in quake 4 bugged or something? After i turned that off there were no more BSOD's. I noticed they didn't have that option untill the last patch and i never had a problem before, and there are no crashing problems in any other games or benchmarks either.
If anyone has had the same problem lemme know, i wanna know if it's the hardware or the game itself.

Multi CPU support (dual core) has been indeed been added only in the latest point releases;
do you have any issues with other games with the X2 ?
here is dual core game bugfix thread at our forums :I-Star Nitro AX Full Tower Case

No problems with any other game
I've played bf2, dark messiah demo, fear and i've run 3dmark06 most of which are more taxing then Q4, also BF2 is notorious for it's bugs and it runs better then ever.
Had this rig for 7 months but i just upgraded the chipset, video, and cpu cooler system yesterday so i guess i'm bound to have some problems.
But for now the only thing seems to be with Q4.
thanks for the link

hmm; weird bug indeed then, no first hand experience with dual core CPUs here; would try a bit of google search
