prime is the best way to find out if you have a stable overclock. on most fx-55 series procs you'll see a good 3 ghz on air if you're lucky.

I think your ClockGen is on some digital-hooch.

As for Prime95: If you have not already done so, download and install

http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm

All the required instructions are included. If you have any difficulties post back.

Good Luck!
