Thanks Salty. Yes Im afraid my Q9550 Doesnt seem to want to really do anything other than stock. Truth be told I cant even remember if I have ran prime or any bench on stock. Maybe I should do that first I guess? Currently I have it @ 3.09ghz (354X8.5) which I though was stable as it passed prime 95 24hours but Crashed running Futuremark. Hard lock just like when running 400X7,8,8.5,6 anything number multi you like. tried 399 401, just fails a thread in prime one at a time or hard locks. I havent had much time the last month to do much computer related at all. Read my thread for the most current updates.
