What would I turn back on to enable just that function out of the things you suggested I turn off?
- CPU Halt (C16)
- CPU Therm Mon (TM2)
- CPU Eist
- Virtualization
- CIA2
After you get your stable overclock,

1. Enable C1E and EIST in BIOS.
2. Set Power Options in windows to Minimal Power if Vista

Also it was mentioned in this forum that some of the items I mentioned to turn off are not necessary. They absolutely are. If you turn on any power management settings, it can cause problems with overclock stability. That is why we shut it all down to start with, and then after you reach an overclock you can live with, turn the before mentioned items back on.
