ok so i overclocked my new amd phenom 9600 to 2.8 ghz stable after a one hour stability test then i went up to 2.9 and it crashed in the first 15 minutes, so would it be safe to say i can keep it at 2.8 since it passed the 1 hour test? or should i bring it down to 2.7 ghz to make sure? my idle temps are 32c and like 51cwhen i play crysis for an hour or so.

up your vcore just a bit to get it stable at 2.9GHz. Do you have the SB750 South Bride motherboard? Did you use the advantage of ACC? Is your Phenom the Black Edition?
