Got it. Vcore set at 1.3625V, FSB @220, multi at 17x. Running 3.74 ghz. Running a benchmark now at 50% load, stable at 36 degrees. Think I could get a little more out of it...my fan is only going 940rpm, goes up to 1300.

You need to run prime95 and get no errors. 50% load is nothing for a stress test.

Do large FFT's

Also, check temps while its going.

It crashed. Got to 39C and then rebooted. Lasted about a minute. Vcore was at 1.36V. My guess is it was hotter than 39 but it wasn't transferring heat fast enough because the heatsink isn't hot. Could also be that one of the cores is just unstable. But the fourth core was stable at 3.45ghz.

It crashed because your vcore is waaay too low.

Just don't let it get over 60C.

What should it be at?

EDIT
I set it to 1.3825 in the BIOS but when I pull up CPUZ its scratching at 1.376 and staying more consistently at 1.360V.

EDIT
And it drops to 1.328. Should I up it more? Because in the BIOS, when I did the next increment, the value turned yellow. Made me think not to do it.

I would immediately go back to stock if this is happening. Something is seriously wrong if it dips that much.
