When I overclock, why does windows aero turn off and everything is slow?

So, I've autotuned my Fx-4100 and I want to overclock, because I'm running at 7c idle. and 35c under full load. So I want to oc from 3.6 to 4.2 any where in that area.
Well I finally get the thing to work, slide to the 4.0ghz tick and the computer switches into aero, and all video decoding becomes awful.
Youtube stutters, and I shudder at minecraft's fps. What is going on? Why is everything so messed up?

I'm sorry... 7 degrees Celsius idle? 35c under load? Unless you live in the polar circle, that's not... no. It would also require the room you were gaming in to be about 5 degrees above freezing - you'd be gaming in a refrigerator.

What's happening is your temperature sensors are off, you're producing WAY more heat than you think, and that's causing problems when you try to overclock.

+1

those temps don't make sense. what you using to monitor them? i prefer open hardware monitor openhardwaremonitor.org ...though if ur sensors are messed it won't help. try a differant monitor then what your using to make sure its not software first though.

Well... how am I meant to fix said Sensors?
Speed fan now informs me that 35 c is my idle. and 50c is more reasonable when gaming.

But still, that doesn't explain why Aero turns off.

those temps are more reasonable yes. Aero could be turning its self off to free up VRAM resources...what typ of graphics card do you have?

more likely your CPU needs more voltage at that Speed. trying bumping the voltage up to see if it stabilizes....i would keep your full load temps at 67C or less though some folks do go higher...try running intel burn test when you do. do 10 runs and see if it crashes.

Well..



I didn't go over 49c.
:I

and I have a HD 6850 GPU.

temps are good and witht that card there is no reason aero should be turning off....i am going to do some research...i'll get back to asap

Atomic.
Just saw some comments on cpu stuff.

I had bent pins, but I bent them back and installed.
I think I know why issues are being had.


I'll have to wing it until I get a new processor though. :( 

I'll select you as best solution though. Thanks.
