"The CPU and CPU/NB current capability will keep the CPU from throttling down at high loads when raised." (from your 2nd link)
So it absolutely DOES sound like this could cause the CPU to throttle down. Now, when leaving it on "Auto", does that mean it *should* ramp the CPU/NB current up and down as needed, or won't it be delivering sufficient current when left in the "Auto" position with a high overclock? I can mess with these settings, but they make me a bit nervous...Then of course, there's the question of HOW high should you take them?
Edit :: And while we're on the topic of overclocking, how hot is too hot for the FX-8350? I've not been letting it get over 70 deg C.
