Just upgraded my CPU, 1066 FSB 2.4GHZ to 1333 FSB 3.0 GHZ

Not exactly a ridiculously huge quantum leap in hardware but I'm suddenly having some instability issues especially in high power games (world or warcraft, team fortress). Game ran fine on Desktop for 2 hours before starting a game then I had a series of crashes.
I don't run anything overclocked. Voltages in bios are set to "AUTO." Memory timings AUTO. Most things are set to default or auto. The SLI memory setting in BIOS is set to CPU OC 0% so the SLI is enabled but the CPU isn't getting overclocked. PCIe speeds are set to 100 which is default.
Any ideas of things I could try to improve stability? Any obvious incompatibilities?
