So I got system info to show that I had a core i7 processor @2.67ghz 3.40ghz, does that mean that I am running at 3.40 ghz or 2.67ghz? Also, in Device Manager, all 'eight' cpu cores show that the clock speed is2.67 ghz.

the 2.67 is the stock speed. the new speed is next to it.

This ^^^

Just make sure you run OCCT CPU small FFT, Prime 95, or Orthos for at least 2 hours. If it passes, you have a stable OC. And yes you HAVE to run it for two hours or more.

I say 10-12 small fft's then at least 8 blend.

I wrote it in a post a while back. I used to skimp on my tests 2...maybe 3 hours...called it stable. No blue screens, no freezes. All good.

Then I started getting random application errors. Especially in my COD games.

A few bits of misread/miswritten info may not be enough to fail you in a stress test after an hour or two, but it's sure enough to start corrupting your operating system.
