Just wanted to say, PSU swapping didnt help, what did so far was the power boost to the CPU and a small drop in FSB. No idea why I have this problem, never really like AMD's, my first ASROCK board also (tho the board for the price has a lot of features).

So ATM its like this:
CPU Frequency - 199 mhz (stock - 200 mhz)
Processor Voltage - 1.275 V (stock - 1.25 V), tho 1.275 V seems like its on the edge and might crash sometimes, 1.3 V is a lot smoother.
RAM settings did drop down a bit as expected.

All in all, no BSOD's in all test, except for the POWER SUPPLE test in OCCT. Yes it needs a better PSU, somebody screwed up while getting this rig together.

Now I wonder, will it damage the PC? The cooling is not great in the tower, need to get a proper h2o block or a nice heatsink with a fan. And the CPU is actually bull ... Low temp design, not like my i7 Laptop. Throttling is on tho, just in case. (I have seen the CPU going down with a lot of stressing already). But yeah, thats a problem for another day.

Big thanks to crjdriver!
So far all is good, but I will wait for this weekend to end, to really be sure that everything runs smoothly.
