Just a note on this. 4.5GHZ settings for normal use - gaming, rendering, ect I had down in a couple hours (200*22.5). Then of course I did Y-Cruncher for a few hours, adjusted a few settings, and then finished with a 24HR Prime95 test - all was good. Then I tried Folding big -bigadv WUs on a virtual Linux. The first WU failed then locked up the entire system - *face palm*. After 10HRS straight, testing every variable (one at a time), even things that didn't make sense I finally got it to fold without a hitch (250*18, with other settings tweaked). 2 days later it finished the WU and has been doing it ever since 24/7 with load temps never cracking 40C - typically 38-40C. So in short folding stresses the CPU like no other "stress" program ever will and it has requirements that normal overclocking does not require - it's very picky, especially at higher speeds.
