Overclocking 32bit os great on 64bit os not so great WHY?
hope this is the right place to put this thread but trying to find out somethings i am running both windows 7 32bit and 64bit in dual on my system i have overclocled my amd 965 be to 4.2 runs stable on the 32 bit windows 7 runs 95prime 10 hours no trouble but when i boot in to windows 7 64 bit i do good to get 95 prime to run for more then an hour no trouble with heat on both OS the temps running 95prime stay within 50 to 52 c so what the trouble is it something in the chips that when running 64bit apps the cpu is workiing harder or is there a bug in windows 7 64bit and if it is a bug does microsoft know about it just wantting to know if anyone has any info please let me know

Woah there skipper. Punctuation and paragraphs help a lot with getting replies.
Other than the difference in memory addressing, slight changes to the kernel, etc. there's not too much of a difference between the 32- and 64-bit O/S. Perhaps these differences are revealing a weakness in your hardware.
It's probably a long shot, but have you tested your RAM from bootable media with a program like Memtest86+?
ran some memory test useing everest with no troubles but i will give memtest86+ a try and see what i get
