Ok, basically, I've lowered my FSB to 195Mhz (200Mhz AMD spec) to prevent the fluctuation of my FSB from taking my 3200+ over 2200Mhz. But, my Vcore is still fluctuating as much as .5v above AMD's specs. So, if I lower my Vcore, so that it doesn't fluctuate so high, what can I expect as far as stability issues?

Also, would my Vcore fluctuating +.5v over spec cause games to crash, etc?

If you lower vcore, you *could* lose stability.
You never know for sure, but a small decrease shouldn't be too bad.

I have my machine set with a small undervolt. Not too many troubles

Well, sitting here, with just 1 browser window open and my background progs running (Norton Corporate, ZAPro, etc...) my system rebooted, all on it's own. I'm concerned that my problem goes beyond Vcore and FSB... Guess I'll flash my BIOS now, heh.

I looks like you are losing stability.
You PSU looks nice, so I'm not going to blame the variations on it, or should we?

You could try to set the Vcore a bit over what it is now, so if it fluctuates, it will be still over AMD's default value....

Tell me if it works
