AMD phenom X4 965 4.0 GHz

just wanted some input on this build and if I should change anything. everything is stable and running really well. I have put it through many stress tests and never seen temps above 55C even while running prime95.

  1. Have you stress tested it at that clock yet ? I.E 3DMark06, Prime95, memtest etc, I'd run 3DMark06 and if you get to the end/score its usually a pretty good indicator your new clock is stable but to make certain I'd run Prime95 for 12 hours or so then your no for sure.
  2. stable in stress test .. welcome to 4Ghz
  3. y-cruncher for 8 hours in stress test mode and we can say that is stable.
