I think i may have found two problems.

1) First problem is that it appears my PSU is stressing.
Under load my +12v rail drops to 11.88v-11.93v. I am
sure this IS causing some OC instability.

2) Under load the chipset can get really hot. Mine has
reached 59c with 100% load and i have a fan on it.
Is this normal, is this ok, i have no clue what is acceptable?

Am still trying to figure out if the Swiftech MCW-NBMAX
will fit on an Asus P6T.

Am using a Apevia 680w PSU. For sure will be upgrading
to probably a Thermaltake 750w.

hmmm.... idk. i just took a look and it doesnt look good on the NB-MAX. thats the one i have and its decent. i think it would be better with some sorta fins or a pin structure inside.

can you remove that black fin thingy from the NB?
