Your cpu is fine, but using a single channel memory configuration might be dropping you a few fps. Why are you using 3 sticks?

using 2 and motherboard is dodgy so dual channel doesn't work it just freezes at bios splash screen.

haha, i get paranoid at 1.5 and above. I'm comfortable with anything under. My temps aren't that great because of my case and I don't have any good fans... I'd be pushing my voltage to 1.5ish if I had decent temps.

1.45volts should be not even close to damaging your chip, imo. go for it!

i tried and even at 1.55 its not stable any higher than 3.055 i didn't leave voltage that high very long, just long enough for a boot BSOD.

So you're using a 2gb stick and a 1gb stick?

Run your benchmark again, only downclock the cpu... If you get less fps, then you'll know your cpu is what is causing the slow down.
