Yeah, that's what was causing it. Fixed now. Thanks man

this. As far as I know, cool'n'quiet is generally a hindrance to proper overclocking. What it does is down clock/ and down volt your chip when you are idle/low load. While this might sound good if you are going green/energy bill conscious, I would recommend turning it off because it can cause instability because of the constant voltage changing.

Check out this link if you DO want to keep your energy bill down, but to be able to control this sort of 'variable' over-clocking directly:

Try to run prime, then open CPU-Z and verify it is then at the correct frequency

It shouldn't cause instability, in fact, it could even increase stability and life as it won't sit at the overclocked and over-volted settings all the time.
