your cooler, though, may not be up to the challenge.

the cooler might not be good enough, and phenom II cpus generally don't like 4 sticks of ram... it tends to cause issues with stability when overclocking. if your 16gb of ram is coming from 4 sticks of ram consider pulling 2 sticks out and going with 8gb. furthermore PhII cpus tend to dislike ram over 1333 in speed. i'd downclock that 1600 ram to 1333, and see if that stabilizes things.
