    well, Im stumped, and a little peeved atm - so far Im loving my new Ultra-D as my opt is now at 3.15ghz STABLE 40'c load.

    however Im now having huge problems trying to overclock my 512 x1800xt to anywhere near the speeds I achieved on my old board.

    I used to be able to get 700/800 gpu/mem @ 1.425v on the gpu core.

    now with the new setup I cant even get a 20mhz increase on the gfx card without it black screening and dying on me.

    using overclocker to set speeds, ATiTool to adjust voltage and monitor temps through mbm5. using the new 6.5 drivers from ATi.

    i disabled the ATi hotkey poller in services.

    meh any ideas? This board has far more complicated features on it, am I missing something here?
