That might have something to do with it.... :)

How's the OC treating you?

Tried to push it any further?
With stock cooling under load its runs low to mid 40 c.So going further requires better cooling , at the moment I'm unconvinced that the comp as a whole is worth poring more cash into.Guess I just got a new office computer cause it sure isn't up to the level of gaming performance I want.Sure pisses me off that expensive hardware goes obsolete so fast.

I find that new improved hardware is usually released every 4 to 6 months:( That's why those who need to have the fastest right now buy all of their parts at once cause if you buy it 1 part at a time by the time you buy the last part the first one already has a new faster one released:( (hmm... I think that made sense lol)
