Back the OC down to what's stable and just live with it till your new gear comes in. No way to understand what's happening when we don't know the mobo make and the ram module makes and models. Plus how much do you really want to spend when you'll be getting all new rig soon.

Yes, he is using an HP MoBo, which is why I stated here, that he had hit his ceiling.

Thornton, when you get your new rig, let us know. There are a lot of people here who can educate you on how to properly overclock. The first rule of Overclocking, make sure you have adequate cooling. And any adjustments made outside of the BIOS, via OS bound software, is dangerous and will result in damage and instability.

my new cooling is in most peoples op, overkill, atleast for air cooling, but i will admit, you cant hear it unless you are trying too. i think OCing from the bios will be much easier when i get my 3770k and my new mobo

i should ask, more because i can admit im too lazy to navigate the intel website, than because im incapable, what the recomended heat limit is for a 3770k, i understand they run hotter than AMDs, but have a stricter heat managment need

Thornton,
You're correct you'll have a whole new world of settings and options to push your rig. Like you'll have, I have 4x4 G.Skills @ 2133 and can only get 1866 currently but with a new processor I hope to max the 2133 mhz. speed and I'm sure that difference alone will blow my mind. Problem with the extra speed is you are quickly normalized to it and wanting more.

Just the new typography of these newer mobo's are faster and more feature laden. Adjustable everything it's great but can be a large learning curve, but if you go slow or get with people with the same boards and chips then you can get idea's on their settings. I'm soon to jump to a 8 core myself.
