Also, what kind of cooling are you using out of curiosity? Is your ambient below 15C?
Yeah, well it was 2 days ago when Chicago froze over like a polar bear. Now it's closer to low 20s. I'm using a Zalman 9500. Before I "fixed" the thermal grease and actually made it worse, I was getting mid 40s at load @ 3.2ghz. Now it's up to 60! Time to fix it again.
