Windows 7: 8-Core, overclocked machine slow...

Graphs look fine to me, stable voltage and temps go down with stress. RAM is running at 1600MHz.

You ran the GPU:3D test, that's for the graphics card.

Run the CPU:OCCT test, I want to see if the voltages are more stable, they're fluctuating quite a bit on the graphics test.
Run the CPU:OCCT test for at least 30 minutes, be sure to monitor your CPU and GPU temps.
Set the time before you start.
Post all the graphs here.

I've never seen an AMD system with fluctuating CPU core temps like that, it may be a problem with OCCT, as all testing/monitoring programs seem to have issues keeping up with all the different systems out there.

The 3.3, 5 and 12 voltage graphs aren't as smooth as they should be, this may be caused by PSU or motherboard.
Something to keep in mind if you have any further problems.
What PSU do you have?
The CPU Vcore is all over the place, this is a bit concerning.

If it's stable now, it's ok, just keep this in mind if you start having anymore crashes.

OK. The machine has only been running for about 3 days without a reboot [for some reason, it didn't sleep the last two nights, just blacked the screen. [I don't think I should be concerned, as it does sleep during the day]

The first post was about choppy-ness behavior during use, so I am going to wait a few days before I mark it solved.

As far as the fluxuations, the 8-Core is REALLY 4 Dual-Core CPUs in one chip, so who knows...

I remember having that problem too, but its different Flash Player 11.4.402 had many problems in FireFox, but in 11.5, its fixed.

Glad to hear it's running better.

Let us know your verdict in a couple of days.

I guess I'm going to say that both problems are solved. I do want to try to overclock it, but when I let the motherboard do it, it crashed within 10 minutes of running, so I took it out. This is just a family machine, so I don't NEED it, but I'd LIKE to do it. [That's a seperate thread that I havn't started yet]

Thanks for marking the thread Solved.

Automatic OCs don't always work and even if they do, they're bad. Always add too much voltage, make things too hot.
Manually adjusting settings in the BIOS is the best way.
Search the OC forums for OC'ing guides, read through the basics, then start asking questions.

The computer behaves VERY well, but, occasionally while playing Bloons Tower Defense 5 [BTD5] the game would freeze for almost a minute, but the computer has not!

I don't know if it's the computer or the flash or if it's something else.
