    Not too bothered about this but just out of interest. I can't get above 3.1ghz without random restarts. All the way up to 3.0 is fine, never does it, but above its not stable at all. The temperatures are fine.

    This is on a 6300 and a 550w psu. Maybe thats as far as this setup will go?

    Have you definately got the ram voltage set correctly? Entered the Timings properly? Added a bit of voltage to the northbridge?

    Are the temps ok? What 550w psu is it?

    What about the northbridge temps? Sometimes the heatpipe isnt actually making contact with the NB and it all just gets really hot.

    I'm very happy with it. Has the option to fit a fan either side if you want serious airflow.

    When running Orthos do you want to set the affinity and run 2 versions, one per core?

    You dont need to set affinity in orthos, just one version is enough for a dual core

    I did notice that if you run more than one instance of Orthos, the temps will go up at lot more.

    With me I had about 53C with Orthos x1

    and about 60ish C with Orthos x3

    Temps here are 54/52, maybe cos one cores working harder, maybe the HSF aint seated properly, maybe the cap thing aint flat..

    No need, itll probably send your pagefile daft, unless you manually set the amount of ram to use.
