You're right per usual, OvrClkr. Dicked around with my settings a ton, tried a bunch of new OC profiles -- kept blue screening in-game. Oddly it was doing fine with stress tests. Need to keep tweaking I guess. 4ghz passed stress tests, but blue screened in game...so I am back at 3.8ghz cpu and 2000mhz 9-9-9-27. Good enough is going to have to be good enough yah? hahah thanks for the help guys
don't even sweat it
, 3.8Ghz is more than enough CPU power for ANY game. Your CPU at 3.8Ghz is basically the same as mine at 4.3Ghz give or take. I cant even max out my CPU utilization at 3.8Ghz when playing games, you will see more gains working with the GPU rather than your CPU at that clock.
