I know software o/clocking is frowned on , but I'm just experimenting here.
I think I'll go back to 4 cores for the time being and see how we go ...

make sure your cpu cooler is meant for Phenom II. Unlocked, it has to be compatible to a Thuban. if not i recommend a more efficient one like the Cooler Master 212 Evo. The Evo should manage a Thuban at 4GHz.

I suppose it could be the Arctic Cooling fan being not up to the job! Time for an upgrade!

Thanks for the tip about the Cooler Master 212 EVO folks , as it happens they are on special offer over at Pixmania for the next day or so ... I might grab one ... £ 21.90 + £ 4.10 p&p!

Meanwhile what do we think of the Corsair Hydro coolers that have been around recently? ... tempting!
