    Aphax, I'm not sure about this, but maybe you really broke you CPU while overclocking. Though I'm currently using an Abit AN8 SLI mainboard myself and I'm not really that pleased with it.
    Actually I can't get my new 1 TB hard drive to format correctly with ext3. Every time I tried it, the system just hangs up. Well while searching for the problem, I read about some linux related bugs, but it also could be a hardware (especially mainboard) problem I guess.

    Even though I have to thank Abit for there absolutely broken Windows(tm) drivers to bringing me to the linux platform at all! Back than in 2006 I didn't got Windows XP working stable on this Abit mainboard. Every few days the system crashed completely.
    After a few weeks of research, I came to the conclusion that the awful drivers caused the problem. I installed Ubuntu Linux and everything worked just as it should, though I had to learn the whole thing from scratch for the following few month :P

    Well, with a pricey mainboard, you can also have the same troubles, but this time I want to try that out and invest a lil bit more as usually.

      I've used cpuburn-in for cpu heat testing, and when 8h of that passed, I went on to GCC and Glibc's torture tests, which stress the cpu actually even more

        I've just swapped my ABIT IP35 for an MSI P35 Neo2-FIR and I still have the exact same issue, I am now leaning more towards broken CPU, and unfortunately since I never bothered to properly test it before I started OCing it I will never know if that's what made it broken.. oh well, lesson learned I guess

        Thanks for the suggestions by the way curaga, will give cpuburn-in a try
