That's when I stop and re-evaluate my cooling, actually I'll let it hit 65'C for a very short period.

Try changing your fsb to manual and setting it to 200.

2advanced told me to set my FSB to "manual" to prevent the fluctuation that "auto" seems to create. So that's what I did and it seems to help stability!

Give it a shot!

I decreased it to 1333 MHz...

I think I have caught the OC bug! It gets pretty exciting when you reach your goals!!!

Looks like it's coming along nicely. Next tune your memory and memory controller, which is a real pain on the FX to get it just right and stable, at least it was for me.

I did set it to "200" i guess that's what you mean by manual? It doesn't really fluctuate but it shows 201 instead of 200 and 4515.. *confused*
