Thanks a lot for your help Going by your recommendation my CPU is now overclocked via a higher multiplier instead of a higher FSB and I'm getting pretty much the same performance compared to my earlier FSB overclock.

Advice may be given here at this point, but I will restate that the best advice is to purchase a better Heat Sink or some other form of cooling for the CPU besides Stock. As I said before and another person, do not Overclock on Stock Heat Sink as advice. It's dangerous and it will also kill the life span of your CPU. even though you are close to the MAX temps. Just being that close to the max is enough to slowly cause damage over time, even short time, with the thermal compound being used from AMD and the Heat Sink.

I'm using ThermalTake TG-2 thermal compound. Thanks for the advice though.

Lol, Okay, sorry then, the System specs you have say Stock for CPU at that time. So that was the slight confusion.

But still, even the thermal compound being what you stated, it just means the compound will degrade slower than the AMD would and that you are still using a stock Heat Sink, unless this is mistaken in some way. Fluctuations in stability, heat, and voltages will happen the longer a system is in a state of being overclocked. So make sure to watch things and monitor them a bit from time to time to be safe.

I will keep an eye on my stuff to make sure everything is alright. Thanks for the advice!
