I've gone back to 3602 to see if the issues go away. I was previously using 3101, hadn't really had any issues up to that point. Decided to install 4004 a couple of weeks ago and have had issues since.
The issue I was having is the computer would freeze up from time to time and when left on overnight, I'd usually find if frozen in the morning when I go to use it. The Monitor would be in the power saving mode, and I wouldn't be able to bring it out of power saving mode as the mouse and keyboard (both USB) wouldn't work.

I actually tried going back to stock settings and I haven't had a lockup in about 3 days now, so I am assuming it might have been the overclock? I didn't consider the OC before as being the issue because I've been running the same conservative 4.5Ghz Offset overclock on pretty much every BIOS up to 3101 without any problems. 4004 and 3602, the same overclock might be causing these lockups I've been having the last few weeks.
There's another issue that I didn't mention before that is still happening, and that is the multiplier being locked. I usually leave my system on 24/7, and after a few days with these new BIOSes the multiplier seems to get locked to either 38 (when using stock clocks) or 45 (Offset overclock). It seems to happen overnight when the Monitor goes into power saving mode. The Monitor shouldn't really have anything to do with it, but that is when it seems to happen. That's when the lockups (when overclocked) where also happening too, overnight, when the Monitor goes into power saving mode. To clarify, I don't have sleep enabled, just power saving on the Monitor.
Does anyone have any advice on what to do? Does someone have some settings for a 4.5Ghz, or any other Offset overclock that I can look over and see if they are doing anything differently to me?
