Well I re-attempted it, and so far, it seems to be stable, though not perfect. I idle at about 36 to 40C (it varies depending on clock speed; my cpu downclocks itself to 2GHz during idle times (it's an E8400, 45nm).

So far, it hasnt risen above 44C, but i havent stress-tested it yet.

Who knows, maybe it also needs the TIM to cure before i see an added benefit?

and my Sapphire 4850 is awesome :)

Well worth the 1000 dollars I spent on this machine.

(btw, did i mention im posting this on my new machine? :P)
