Okay, so I recently dabbled with OC'ing my CPU. My set up is a FX6300 coupled with an Asrock 970 extreme3 powered by a Corsair CX500. I OC'ed my cpu to 4.1 ghz at 1.360 volts and it stays there at idle. However, when I prime95 my cpu the voltage drops down to 1.28 volts. Is that normal? Is that bad? Should I stop overclocking till I get a proper mobo? Thanks guys!

Should be something like load line calibration, which needs to be enabled in the BIOS. I dunno what it is for ASRock boards but the purpose is to keep voltage steady at what you set the CPU voltage at. Without it when you are at idle it will throttle down and then ramp up when you are using the CPU.
