So even though you set vcore to 1.325 it may be dropping to 1.28-1.29 maybe lower once cpu is under load. CPUZ will allow you to see the actual vcore under load, just run it along side prime.
I would try changing PLL to 1.57, but leave cpu term at 1.4v. I would not increase it more than that at your current FSB as it can result in the exact opposite effect if ran way to high. In a nutshell, cpu term increases signal strength of FSB to reduce noise and other interference that can cause instability. Running it too high can introduce the same phenomenon that it is intended to correct.
I do recommend an aftermarket cooler as the quads can get fairly hot under load. I am looking forward to BF3 as well. Played the beta and for most part loved it. When you get a chance you should add you computer specs to your sig via the usercp.
Okey i will try to push the pll to 1.57v ... with 1.3250000 cpu , and 1.4v term
if not i will try to push the cpu to 1.33 or more with the new Water cooler ...
I have aftermarket cooler btw , but dont know .. its not that good .. i have full tower but it doesnt fit inside the case .. HUGE as hell , but still sucks ..
I will get that water cooler , seems better ..
See you later then .. Thanks very much for your time ..
