Hello all,

I had to buy a new socket 775 motherboard a year ago and it wouldn't happily overclock so I left the E6550 running at 2.33ghz and lived with it. I would like to extract more out of it now though in an attempt to prolong the usefulness of my rig before I give up and gut it to upgrade to the latest gen. I had an Asus P5K-E motherboard previsouly and it happily ran my CPU at 3.2ghz, but this Gigabyte EP43-UD3L won't boot at all if I try anything above 419x7. I've attached the top screen of the CMOS page, all the values not shown are on Auto except the ram voltage which I set to 2.2v as per Kingston's tech specs. I'm about to order 4 more gigs of the same RAM and install Win7 64bit, should I just give up on the E6550 Conroe and grab a E6700 Wolfdale from Newegg or should I just live with my E6550 capped at 2.9ghz on this motherboard until I upgrade to latest gen?
