          Nice! I would love to see some pictures of it. Though not exactly necessary, i would bet a change of your motherboard to something like ASUS M5A97 PLUS AM3+ AMD 970/SB950 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.ca  or  GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P (rev. 2.0) AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.ca  would make your rig more stable.

          Don't get me wrong, ASRock N68-GS4 FX can drive your 8320E but it's not exactly what you could call a stable mobo. It has a very old chipset which was introduced for Phenom II processors :  NVIDIA® GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a and can't drive any FX more than 95W. And even then you should disable turbo because its VRM section has only 4+1 power phases and even your CPU isn't in the CPU LIST of compatible processors ASRock > N68-GS4 FX   !

            Yeah, I've been experiencing some issues, but nothing too bad. I DO want to upgrade to something better, but I am disabled and money is very scarce. I got the CPU/MoBo as a combo from this discount tech place in CA for like $200. Took me forever to save up for it Doesn't surprise me that the CPU is not compatible. The company advertised that it was a 4.1 GB CPU with NO OC, and nowhere did it say that it was by using Turbo. Was before I learned to understand that AMD speeds are in the model number, lol. I do have the turbo turned off and have NOT OC'd it. Don't think my system could handle it Thanks for the info

                Yeah, companies are doing that crap sometimes. Other thatn those issues that you mentioned, i don't think you'll get into other problems. I wish you the best, glad that i was of any help to you.
