This all depends on your stepping man. "VARIATIONS" if you will....

Open CPU-z ( or download and run it ) and lemme know what stepping you have

you'll see something like this ON the chip itself...

ADA3700DAA5BN
CABGE 0526APBW
1276359F50128

Where as CABGE is the stepping..... and in CPU-z it's have the same kinda thing. A screenshot would be great

2.8 with a Sandy is attainable, especially if you replace the stock cooler.

The effect of overclocking on gaming would depend on the game. Some games rely on the CPU, while others rely on the GPU.

Doubt thats cos of your OC, it doesnt usually corrupt windows. 2.6 is pretty much a given for most 3700's there are a few bad ones, but not that many out there.

Oh... thats weird. I hate when that happens! I dunno why it dhappens but I know it does. I usually just set it back to a stable OC and it happens to fix itself.

CPU-z won't give you the stepping of your proc. the only way to find out the stepping is by looking on the top of your IHS for the numbers.

#2 CABGE (cabbage steppings) are bad overclockers. 2.6 roughly.

also, please fill out your system specs under user cp so we know what we're really working with we can help you out more if you do that.
