Just chiming in on temp, 59 on an AMD is sneaking into crash zone. Anything I have ever had that was AMD that ran that hot was not 100% reliable. Try to keep things between 50-55. I did a upgrade for a friend recently and just changing case airflow around a bit brought his temps down a decent amount. He had a NCIX built system from a few years ago, just by changing the factory placing of one fan(ALL exhaust beforehand) it brought cpu temps down 5-10C. I will give NCIX credit, they installed an after market CPU cooler that made the drop as drastic as it was. I doubt the stock cooler would see that much by changing 1 fan on a case...
