This was a tough one, have to think some more.
Yeah, I've disabled those.
Here is how it happened if that helps.
Built the system --> BIOS upgrade from 0603 to 0704 ---> overclocked to 3.0GHZ by only changing the mult. to 9 anf fsb to 333 and everything else at defaults ---> 3 month lated the pc rebooted itself, I checked the CPU temps and they were in high 80s to mid 90s w/o load, I changed to 2.4GHz and cleaned my CPU Heatsink and the fan. CPU temps went down to 48c - 50c w/o load. Tried to OC to 3.0GHz by only changing the mult. to 9 and fsb to 333 just like before, but this time got only 2.41GHz ---> replaced the stock heatsink with the Arctic Freezer 7 Pro, CPU temps went down to 38c w/o load. Tried to OC to 3.0GHz but got "Overclocking Failed", tried the same with BIOS 0805, 0902, 1005 and latest 1006 but was not able to get past 2.41GHz ever since
