Windows would probably give you lots and lots of pretty bluescreens and stop errors. Not fun to deal with. :P
I have a pair of Corsair sticks in my 1029 running at 400MHz, no problems yet. Was it the Valueselect line, XMS or Corsair notebook memory in general that's not supposed to work well?
Also, I've got some more performance questions...
The guy on Futuremark's website with the best 3DMark05 score for his MS-1029 managed a score of 2732, with his core set to 445MHz and his memory at 378MHz. I can't get my core past 410 without artifacting, and the memory stalls at around 345. Even on stock speeds, the thing seems to be generating a lot of heat. I replaced the stock thermal pads with AS5. I feel like something isn't right. Suggestions? I thought about maybe picking up some small ramsinks that might fit over the video ram...
Another weird thing is that the guy apparently has a MS-1029 with 256mb of dedicated video ram. I thought they were all only 128mb?
Also, has anyone tried overclocking the CPU with A64Tweaker? I'm interested in trying it, but I have no clue what settings to use and I'm also paranoid about frying something.
