I have tried to make it to 4GHz before with no luck, but since then I have gotten better cooling and added a dual PSU setup to lighten the load on my good PSU. I tried again last night and still couldn't make it to Windows at anything above 3.9 GHz. It says that Windows/System32/System is corrupt or missing. I looked around and found this thread which went nowhere so I decided to post a new topic in hopes of getting some results. I have determined that it is probably not my PSU as I have 26A on the +12V and only have that PSU powering my Mobo/CPU and GPU. My gereric 300W is powering all my fans, HDDs and DVD drives. The file it says is corrupt turns out to be a device driver, which makes me curious to see what it actually controls. A few things could be causing this, I believe it may be my RAM, my SATA HDD or my Northbrigde that is giving out, any outside input would be helpful as I know my CPU could make it past 4GHz easy but I'm not sure about the rest of the system.
