I am having some issues with Windows. When playing video files in Media Player or playing CoD4 or Team Fortress 2 my PC seems to just freeze on me not allowing me into Task Manager leaving only being able to reset the machine. Could this be of my overclock? Do I need to up the vCore a little bit?

Additionally, I downloaded OCCT after seeing Jokestar using it and its fine in idling but as soon as it starts testing it the "quack" noise appears and the application quits. Are these signs of needing to up the vCore?

I am currently at 3.2GhZ and vCore of around 1.344V according to CPU-Z but am sure its a little above that... I know they both differ depending on 'loads'.

Thanks in advance, Pikkon

Just up the voltage 1 click at a time the retest, then up the fsb and repeat keeping an eye on your temps.

I am using SpeedFan at the moment and am getting this:

Temp 1: 40C
Temp 2: 48C
Core 0: 60C
Core 1: 62C

What does this mean? Are the Temp 1 and 2 the ones that really matter?

The core 0 and 1 are the cpu temps they shouldn't go above 70c for 24/7 use.

So are those temps giving an indication of what temps I should be expecting under full load?

Well I just clicked on the application and it gave me those temps. I was running a few applications in background like media player, firefox...
