Haha yeah I'll join the club! CPU-Z in my sig.
About the 750i, I have never been big on nVidia chipsets since I'm pretty much die hard ATI, even in the bad years. I haven't heard of many high overclocks of the 9450 on the 750i (or it could have been the 780).
In the last couple of days I've gone from XP 32bit, XP 64bit, and Vista Ultimate 64 bit all on this rig and while I like vista a lot, it still doesn't hold a candle to XP pro 32. Insanely fast with my RAID setup. I would say locking up at anytime is usually too little volts going through the NB/FSB. The processor can stay at 1.3 and should be able to achieve 3.8GHz. Mine's at 1.29 idle/1.26 load. When pushing for 4GHz I'll have my NB at 1.675v and the FSB at 1.5v and I still can't get it stable.
