I recently built a new computer (specs below), and i had figured out how to OC it to 2.6 Ghz. It ran stable (i think) and fast for a month or so, and the just the other day my CPU frequency monitor registered 2.0 (stock) instead of the past 2.66. What happened to my OC? I know it is not the scaling, since my proccessor used to idle at 1.6 OC'd, now it idles at 1.2.

Did i damage my CPU accidentally? Could it be a software problem? HELP!!!!!

Edit: Even when set to defaults in the BIOS, It runs at 2 Ghz.
