ok, so, i was just in my bios and was setting my OC again cuz i reset them since i installed SuSe, anyways, when i OC'd it seemed that it was getting major pwr fluxes, the cpu temp was dropping fast ... down to 35C when it used to be a constant 42C when i would OC, and then the fan speed was fluctuating, i dunno wut was wrong, unless its the PSU, one of the RAIDMAX psu's but anyways just wonderin wut u guys thot... i reset bios to default as quick as i could
