All fixed (as far as I can so far tell) ... running prime95 going on 30 minutes now (at worst it needs fine tuning now).

And it looks a bit more pleasent

I think my issue is power related. CPU voltage fluctuates a lot (even more so with more stuff draining the PSU).

I'm going to guess you have a thermaltake case from the purple rails
Correct

There could be an IDE drive attached because of extreme overclocking. IDE isn't susceptible to overclocking problems like SATA is.
You're actually right. Sort of I have indeed connected my backup drive to transfer all the data off so any reboots don't mean damaged data. My backup drive is connected when it's in the case too though but given its role I see no reason to spend new money on a new SATA optical/hdd so as to avoid the IDE problem.

Yeah. Extreme overclocking on air.
I wish. But temperature is the least of my problems with the CPU. It is so messed up that it won't even boot at stock speeds (at stock volts). It has been like this for over a year. It will however boot at the settings I have been using for the last year or so but now those have become unstable (hence the fun?). If you're interested it's a Q6600 @3.42Ghz.

To make it worse one of the pins on the mobo socket does not make contact with the CPU due to a little 'accident' I had some time back.

Not a fan WD?
Western Digital? Yes I have one in my laptop and it's wonderful.

I think the bottleneck of the whole system is the IDE drive in the same cable as the CDROM. that's so 2005!
Yeah it's not even a DVD When it's all together I make use of all 4 of my available IDE connections (2 cables) though as half my stuff is from my first 2002-ish PC. The other IDE cable is actually sitting under the motherboard to hold it up at the back just enough for the GPU end bit thing to not be touching the floor

More importantly, why is there an IDE hard drive attached?

**EDIT beaten to it**
