Default Prime95 hangs after 1 minute.

Hello, all.

I have a AMD 3200+, Abit AN7, 2x512Mb Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PT.

I am not over clocking the system at all but recently the system has been unstable with crashing in alot of games that didn't crash before. I ran a thorough MEMTEST86 test with no errors. The DIMs are brand new since I though they were my problem. They are running in dual channel right now. I don't think my memory is a problem.

Anyway, when I run Prime95 I can't get through 1 minute without it erroring out. When I in crease the voltage on the CPU the Prime95 can run for a while longer but then it still errors out. I increased my VCore to 1.7v and my DDR is runnning at 2.70v.

Any thoughts on which part is going bad? I am inclined to think it is my CPU.

No. I am using a 5 month old Cool Blue Antec 480W PSU. Sucker cost me over 100 bucks.

BTW, I just ran another MEMTEST86 for over 10 hours with no errors.

The PRIME95 test I run is the top one that uses very little ram and mostly the L2 cache. With that test at normal votages it errors out after 1 minute.
