And the heatsink is secure as can be, bolted down and doesnt move.
I found out that my back fan is dead so its being replaced.
Oh, that's why. Alright then.

Whew.

Also here is a link with all my OC stats..

The only reason for keeping it no higher than 400 is to maintain a 1:1 ratio. Maintaining a 1:1 ratio is cool, but I never had a 1:1 ratio when I had my E8400. I had both 800MHz memory and 1200MHz memory. My FSB was 450, and I think I was lucky enough to have a strap/ratio to choose that got my memory to stock (800 and 1200). Even though I never had a ratio of 1:1, I never had any problems, so I don't know yet why it's recommended.

Well that is now a sigh of relief.

So my final question right now, which is hard for me to get a good solid answer from the search function, is FSB vs Multiplier. Now, the Q9450 has a locked multiplier so I can't go over 8. Which is fine because I really dont have the cooling for much more. So my question is...

Would I get better temps from lowering the multiplier and increasing the FSB? Will stability change much? From what I understand the less I adjust the FSB the better in terms of stability since I have 4 sticks of ram as opposed to 2.

I've got a Cooler Master Hyper TX3.

Not at all, but what are you using for CPU cooling?

Core temps or CPU temps? When I do 4GHz at 1.45V core temps top out around 70C but the CPU goes to ~85C . I don't plan on running this for 24/7 but is it safe to stability test for a few hours at these temps?

I honestly don't know; I've never heard of that.

Alright, well thanks for the help. SI will start cooling my stuff down even more and go from there.

Thanks everyone!
