I have managed to get it up to 3.36ghz, and as a result, my sisoft scores are higher still, but during a game of UT2k3 i noticed it jerking just a couple of times......Now, could this be a fluke, or does sometimes, faster = slower?

Your Cpu is overclocked a little too high and is overheating. Knock it down a little and try again.

The reason it works in sandra and has problems in games is that is pressed harder and for longer in the games.
