i dont think its the heat. whenever i run orthos it'll run for a bit but the it'll stop cuase of an error and it only happens during CPU stress test and the temp doesnt exceed 42

I have mine oc'd very nice. It is cooled on air. Heat for me is not a problem, too bad anyways 62c load 39c idle. I have also found that having a 1:1 ratio is the best. My rig is running very stable 24/7.

Here are my specs;

E4700 : 2.6 @ 3.450
4gb OCZ platinum dual channel pc2-6400
Dram : 287/575 Timings 3-4-3-8-10 Ratio 1:1
FSB : 287mhz
Rated FSB : 1150mhz
Multiplier : 12x, (13x is standard)
Vcore : 1.488
MOBO : MSI p-7n Sli Fi
