Had my new pc since xmas and decided to have a little fun with it. Currently using an e8600 with an asus p5q-pro. Got into the bios just fine and on a mates recommendation bumped up the frequency to 440 and the vcore to 1.4v. Im a little concerned thats a bit high but thats another problem. Exited the bios, booted fine. Using cpu-z i noticed that the frequency didnt stay on 4400mhz, it went between 4400 and about 2000. Is there some setting thats doing that? I ran prime95 for an hour long torture test with no problems. Afterwards jumped into a game since it was raiding time (wow addict... oops) and it froze. Hm i thought, restarted pc, got into wow and... froze.
Given the above info is there any suggestions i can get as far as overclocking, cpu-z, or anything else that comes to mind?
