I over-clocked this about six months ago to get a 3.8mhz. I thought I did it correctly after reading various tutorials on this site, however I can't help but think I've done something wrong. Every now and then (once in every seven or so start-ups) It will say OC failed, which I then go into bios, hit F10 and exit. It restarts up no problem.
I'm posting this for two reasons.
(a) to put my mind at rest, I have a habit of &^"£%^( up the most easy of tasks never mind over-clocking.
(b) I've had trouble lately in World of Warcraft where the player character turns really stop-and-start. Like it turns, then pauses, then turns but really choppy. I've hear people and the devs say its a multi-core issue where the core is out of sink? I had it on an old rig when I swapped to a dual-core AMD so I guess it might be a multi-core problem, but then why do I have no such problems in any other game, such as Aion?
