First of all is anything overclocked? Have you done any work on registries? And you could try another format/reinstall.

Thanks for the reply, No i haven't overclocked it yet. I have stock CPU cooling on a E6550. And i didn't want to shorten its life. Id really like to try avoiding reformat, because i just spent all day a few days ago getting everything loaded on it. Although 2.33 seems to work just fine for me. I might like to push it to max 3.0 and maybe 2.7 or something. but i would probably buy a tuniq tower for that. as the silent fan on it now doesn't seem to get a lot more cooling done than needed for some gaming on stock clock.
