Not saying it was the clock speed but OC has always made me wary but I really will never know what caused it. I left Friday night for several hours came back and the computer was off. With the XFX card in I can't even get the system to post now, so I really can't see if the fan is spinning. Pretty much fried it seems, certainly smells like it.

Honestly right now I think I'm going to wait, I wanted to upgrade my card but since going back to my 3870x2 I'm honestly not noticing a huge drop in FPS over the other card on what I play. Not sure why because the reason I upgraded was because it did seem slow but I think for now I'm going to wait it out a little longer since I've gone this long. See what's coming around next before I buy anything else.
