Q9300 became unstable

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey!

Recently, my computer went unstable when running overclocked. I got a q9300 which was overclocked from 2.5, to 3.45 ghz. It ran fine with 6GB's of DDR2 800mhz ram.

The RAM was overclocked to about 900mhz, so i could run in 1:1.
I don't know why it suddenly went unstable, but it results in that my computer freezes, and won't react to anything at all.

Is it because 4GB of my ram are corsair, and the last 2gb is kingston?

It just used to run fine so i don't understand what is wrong.

My temps are not the problem, so let's not talk about temps.

Thanks in advance!

try to up your vcore a little and what you can also try is remove the kingston ram and look if its stable then just could be also try to set your timings to stock and see if its stable then

Test with OCCT, fail?
If not does it fail Prime95 Blend?

I'd pull the kingston anyway as you're using 3 sticks and losing dual-channel RAM mode.

It was set to "AUTO"

Besides that, i tried with 1.2 vcore, and it went bluescreen.. Then i tried 1.3vcore and it began to freeze after about one hour.. Should i keep adding vcore or what can i do?

Is it possible that your board put that chip out of spec and it degraded a bit?
