i tried it several times, when someone mentioned it to me, but saw no advantage
of having it enabled, disabled or on auto, like i always have (auto)
If I think about returning my parts, should I return the CPU or MB? Which one is most likely to be causing this awful OC? Can MB companies tell if you've overclocked?

Well. I finally got mine to a very stable 4.3 with a 1.26vcore and load temps of 78c. I'm leaving my lackluster i5 there for now. Of course I plan on stealing my wifes i5 as soon as the arctic silver 5 that I ordered arrives! (should be here tomorrow) lol. I'm going to swap our i5s while shes at work tomorrow. She will never miss it. She only plays Guild Wars 2 and facebook apps. She leaves building our PCs up to me...she knows nothing about the bios, overclocking, or modding. Nor does she care. I also ordered a new Corsair HX750 PSU for future-proofing. Her i5 hits 4.4 on stock voltages with a beautiful 1.244v. I can get 4.5 - 4.6GHz on her i5 without breaking a sweat.

Make sure you dont have the overlay from afterburner/percision running when you play Valve games. Valve games HATE the framerate counter/overlay, crash everytime.

What MB are you using? Also what 550w Antec was it that you mentioned earlier? Let me know how it goes tomorrow too!

I'm using an Asus P8Z77 V-LK. My current power supply is an Antec Earthwatts 650watt 80 Plus Bronze. My wife will get the Antec I have now. She has an Antec Truepower 550watt thats about three maybe four years old now. The Antec Earthwatts will better match the rest of the hardware on her system.
