Try some multiplier overclocking.
Need a doctor??

Try bumping the cpu/nb volt. Keep the NB under 2600mhz

You dont need 1.4v Trust me!!! Mine is at 1.25-1.3 on auto and it runs 39c maxed on prime95. This is my second chip, the last one didnt like 1.425v just sayin!
And 2600 on HT caused it to skip around and become unstable in games. 2200 seems the sweet spot for my setup. and yes its just a H50!

What are you using to monitor your temps?

Using HWMonitor, it shows both CPU Temp (Socket Temp) and Core Temp. You should be worried more about Core Temps.
