Slight over clocking issues...help?

First attempt at overclocking my cpu...But I need some help, getting some issues!

AMD 940 @ 3.6ghz 1.45v (18x) - idle temps 38-45, load 50-55.

After overclocking my processor everything seemed to be great; huge performance gain but noticeable temp differences. Though, I'm also receiving persisting issues with my display. Not sure if this is a overclocking issue or not...because I did install new display drivers a bit after overclocking. Should this be re-directed?

What I did:

-Turned on PC
-Entered BIOS
-Set Overclock
-Saved and Exited
-Windows loads properly / display works / cpu seems to be functioning
-Ran a 'Prime95' stress test is successful / 3.6ghz (18x) @ 1.45v 'OK'
-Entered sleep mode / returned; no display on wake-up
-Shutdown PC / pc turned on; no display on start-up
-Reset default clock speeds and volts / default settings
-Loaded default settings / windows loads properly
-Sleep mode and shutdown work properly on stock

Some other perhaps useful information:

MSI 6870 HAWK
VISTA HOME 64
M4A79 Deluxe
GSKILL 6GB DDR2 800
TX650W PSU
P221W MONITOR

Any suggestions?

  1. Turn your sleep mode off so you know if your crashing or not. Then continue overclocking :)
