Rare occurrence = me flying FSX any more.  And if the darn thing wasn't crashing every other minute on me, I might want to fly it some more...  :(

DJ,

After my current system rebuild I was having random module crashes in FSX. I had OC'd to 4.1 GHz and running stable using multiple stress test programs but it ended up not being stable for FSX. Instead of turning up the voltage more to stabilize it I left it alone and dropped my OC to 3.9 and haven't had a crash yet (two weeks). I might try to hit 4Ghz again since I still have some room temp wise but it's running good where it's at for now.

What I learned was I can pass an overclock with stress test for multiple hours only to have FSX destabilize it. :o

Is this one of Hermione's spells?  If so, I trust it!  ;D  What does it do?

Dan,
Yes.  I am thinking this might be the case, but there are other factors I'm considering as well. 

When I ran OCCT before realizing one of my RAM sticks had gone missing, I was passing with flying colors.  Now that I have the full 6GB back, I'm failing OCCT at about 32 min.  Surprisingly, this is about the same place it failed when I was not water cooled.  Does memory complement/configuration affect CPU temperature?

I believe I have underestimated FSX's load on a system.  I think I stated somewhere in my H70 thread that I thought FSX and X-Plane impart a
similar load on the system.  I'm beginning to believe that FSX imparts a much greater load.  This seems to have been confirmed by post I read in another form written by a guy who was coming over from X-Plane to FSX for the first time.  He questioned why it was that his graphics card was being so underutilized by FSX.  I'm beginning to realize that X-Plane puts a lot of pressure on the graphics card, whereas FSX is a lot of pressure on the processor.

I am pretty rusty with FSX keyboard shortcuts at this point.  Before putting in so much time with X-Plane, I had installed EZ-Dok and was becoming fairly comfortable using it.  I never really got used to the exterior views, but I loved the way I could set my initial zoom factor for all cockpit views to 1.00, and then reset my eye point to get the perspective I wanted.  I never understood why FSX started you out with an initial zoom factor of 0.40, and then when you +/-, everything zooms, both inside and out, rather than having it just move your head forward or back.

I decided to eliminate the confusion that EZ-Dok was causing, and uninstalled it.  I also made a line by line comparison between a newly reset fsx.cfg and the one I had been using, and made some changes to ensure everything was according to NicnN's FSX Setup and Tuning Guide.  All is good there.

Where FSX seems to be crashing is when using the right-click menu.  Usually I'll be trying to hide the menu bar by turning it off using the right-click menu.  Another thing I've never understood is why I have to go through that menu sequence twice just to get the menu bar to actually hide.

Another thing I'm noticing is that the space bar is invoking a mouse cursor (+) in the middle of the screen, instead of resetting the view direction to straight ahead.  I thought that was the keystroke to use for doing that, although I know the backspace key also resets the view, but I found that sometimes hitting that key does nothing at all.  I'm not sure whether EZ-Dok is still providing some residual interference, or something else is going on.  I did go into the settings and do a "restore defaults" for the keyboard and joystick assuming that that would clear out any changes that needed to be made for EZ-Dok.  And also, I've rummaged extensively through the settings to see if I can find a place to disable any mouse-related view commands, but can't find a way to globally do that.

Overall, I think my FSX installation is sound and doesn't really need to be completely reinstalled.  Maybe 4.2 GHz is just to high for this processor.  That would be a shame…  :-\

I always appreciate you guys' thoughts.
Tom

If it's the menu crashing and you have W7 this is the fix:

http://forum.avsim.n...hing-win-7-x64/

Just place it in the root FSX folder. DO NOT delete the W7 ones.

I dont know much at all about X Plane. FSX has been running fine on my new system I couldnt run it in any real sense on my old one.  But "horsepower" is something your not lacking for sure, so I dont understand why the problem.  I run Windows 7 64 bit.  But in any case, you shot is perfect, lets see some more.  ;D
