I did run memtest86 after overclocking, no problems during a 24 hrs
period. The I compiled 250 kernels, which were all identical. Still,
lame is obviously very sensitive.
The moral of the story: overclocking a 3700 San Diego to 2750 MHz works
most of the time, but not with lame. For now, 2640 works a lot better.

24 hrs - no problems.
This must sound lame, but I really thought I had it stable, with memtest
and compiling kernels.
