Thankfully my custom fan shroud keeps my VRM and socket temps under 60C when the fans are running right.
If you still want some further help pushing the CPU - drop a post in the FX owners club thread! Most of the members who have helped here regularly grace that thread with their presence!

Mega running HT at 3900? where did that come from?
If you mean where Flail wrote it in the FX owners thread, he meant his profile which runs at 2400 NB / 2700 HT / 3900 CPU
Also in ref to the OS corruption. I've only really seen this first hand on my old Athlon FX55 - and using ref for overclocking would sometimes screw my OS boot tables etc. and remember having to Format from a bad OC a few times. I thought this was not a concern with using the multi - and was caused by HTT, not just PCI overclocks.
