    FX 6300 overlocked from 3.5 to 4.5Ghz but windows shows that the speed never goes above 4.41Ghz The utilization is at 26% in the screenshot below but I've had it at 99% and still didn't peak above 4.41Ghz. What do you guys think?

    16 GB RAM installed but only 8 GB usable

    I've got it to work sort of.. Fiddled with BOOT Advanced Options and got it to show 15.5GB out of 16GB with 547MB reserved. Any thoughts on the following, do they look right?

    Yes it's dual channel. Windows has always read them as the full 16 GB, this Hardware Reserved thing is new

    nVidia GTX 680 problem

    I took it out to clean it once, and it looked as if it was brand new. MSI has this feature where the fans spin in the opposite way when the computer is turned on/off to clean the dust off. Metro Last Light and GRID 2 also locked up and crashed, but that was before I got problems, and it was...
