A week or so after my overclocking adventure below, my computer started showing signs of instability. The fan became noisy, it would freeze up little speckles of color on the screen, crash after sleeping, etc. I downclocked it bit by bit in the hopes that I could save any gains on speed but with no luck. As of this writing, I’m back at the stock configuration for both the CPU and GPU. I’ve lost framerates in WoW (down to an average of about 20.5 fps from 40 fps), but at least I can play again. And in reality, my fps is never that much lower than a typical movie, so no worries.
