    checked for errors in your grid? maybe overclock is not stable or something and it is returning the results as errors.

    EDIT:

    Could it be possible my cpu throttled itself during the evening while having it @ 3.5Ghz 1.4v? I did have the cpu up to where it was loading close to 53C. Just looking for insight.

    gpu upwards, otherwise, its weight probably will desolder it partly, also counts for ram. heavy components can fall off;)

    maybe, the darn hd4850 will behave better ;-)
    next time, you also maybe need warmer outside temperature, to be able to ventilate your rooms, without riscing solder cracks:)

    here is kinda the plan for my next "project" So to say. Reason i am posting here is because it will be crunching :) i would also be pairing it up with a nice GPU (undecided) now all i have to do is get some money (and a job) I will most likely be ordering the PSU within the next month or so then but the parts as i get the money.So what do you think?
