Hey kids, I have a question for you guys, and hope someone may be able to steer me in the right direction. I've got a dreaded 1.6 that I modded with a Duo X2. Worked fine for a while. But now, it will freeze up somewhat randomly. When it freezes, the light stays green, but the picture freezes, and a nice lound sound is produced. Usually happens after 15 minutes of halo 2. I checked the temps, and they were a little warm, so I put arctic silver on the gpu and cpu heatsinks. That helped out, and its running at a good temp. Now, I read a little on the MCPX, and put a heatsink on that, still does the same thing, didnt even really buy any more time. I've tried different bioses in the chip, tried different dvd drives, ide cables, hard drives, all with the same result. Does it sounds like the mcpx is shot, or could maybe be corrupt ram? Seems as though the 1.6s are pretty notorious for both. Thanks for the input, guys.
