I ran it earlier today and, if I'm not mistaken, got a score of about P3650. Is that what I should expect?

Also, usually CPU-Z says the CPU clock speed is not quite 1.6 GHz (it seems to go up to 3.3 sometimes for a short bit then goes back down, I guess I just happened to get a screenshot at 3.3). Is that normal? Does it underclock itself when it doesn't need the extra speed, or do I need to change something in the BIOS (well, UEFI)? I assume it clocks up, because I didn't have trouble running Bad Company 2 or Crysis, both with everything on max settings and 2xAA (although only at 1280x1024 until I get a new monitor).

Also, is that a decent idle temp for this chip and a Hyper 212+ with Shin Etsu TIM? I know that load temp matters more, but I haven't gotten around to stress testing anything yet (it's the last week of classes for the semester, so lots of major projects/presentations and studying for finals). I do need to adjust some things with my fans, I need to put the CPU heatsink fan on the other side, that should help because I think right now the case fan that is just behind the CPU fan is blowing outward, while the CPU fan is blowing inward.

Thanks, guys. And if you have any tips/suggestions for me (besides telling me to fix my cable management, I know), I'd be glad to hear them

[EDIT] Removed pics so that maybe people will answer my questions instead of just telling me that I have a nice build or need to fix my cable management.
The jump in speed is normal when it lowers down it is your cpu throttling down as it does not run at full load if its not being required too. It jumps upto full speed only when needed like opening an application or gaming etc. this is the normal function of the turbo.

Run prime 95 stress test and see if it stays at full clock speed while running that, With a 212+ cooler you can reach 4.5ghz without too much trouble but i believe anything over this and temps will rise sharply and a better cooler may be needed. try to stay below 70-75c. your 3d mark score will rise with cpu overclock trust me

Just the kind of stuff I was hoping to hear!

And yes, I was hoping that the throttling down when not needed was normal. I assumed that it was, but wasn't sure. I will start running stress tests and do some overclocking later next week or that weekend, as I'm currently overloaded with school work.

I don't think I'll bother going past 4.5 GHz (may even stay a little below that, we'll see). I feel like going past that wouldn't really help me with any of the things I do (gaming, schoolwork, programming, web development, web browsing, music/movies) and would just be more stress and heat on the CPU.

Your right 4.5ghz is plentifull and anything over that is not really noticeable. i only have mine @ 4.8 because it helps in folding. temps @ 4.5ghz should be below 70 even under the maximum stress just keep an eye on temps and if your cpu is a good chip it should manage 4.5ghz on less than 1.35v but 1.35 is a good starting point to work down from

Alright, good to know. I also need to do some fan adjustments before I start my overclocking. My CPU fan is sucking air pretty much directly from a fan that is blowing air directly out of the case, so that is probably not helping my temps. And I just noticed that for some reason the two fans on the front of my case aren't spinning. I thought I plugged them in, but maybe not.
