    So far this is as high as I've been able to get. Just under 4.2 GHz. when I try to up the frequency (multiplier) anymore than 21 I get a BSOD. I tried increasing the voltage all the way up to 1.3v but I still got the BSOD.

    Seems I was increasing the wrong voltage.

    Running just under 4.3GHz now. Now to run P95 and see if anything happens.

    Watch the temps real close. Remember yesterday we saw temp2 at 90, which is way too hot.

    Yup. I'm watching it.

    I asked CountMike about temp 2. (He's running a FX-6350) He say's that it's the chipset and I should apply a heat sink to cool it off. At the moment it's at 62C and I'm running just below 4.5 GHz.

    Thanks Essenbe. Most of this stuff actually seems to make sense now.

    I remembered that I have a few extra case fans lying around, so I installed one on the top of my case and now temp 2 is down to about 48C while I'm still running a little under 4.5GHz.

    That's a good improvement. Good job. 4.5 is a nice speed too. You really won't notice anything higher than that usually. That's what I run this rig at 24/7.

    Yup, and compared to 3.7, which I thought was my maximum speed, 4.5 is really nice.

    Yes, that's a good speed to run at and a nice overclock.
