I am trying to get a little bit more time out of my old E6550, I need to finish buying a house before I can upgrade. I had it overclocked to 2.88 GHz for the longest time and it was stable. I tried hitting 3.5 Ghz last night, but couldn't do it, no matter what I tried. So I am stuck at 3.3 Ghz with a sometimes stable overclock. My clock is now 475 Mhz with 800Mhz on my memory, all of this through an nVidia 680i SLI. I did find a thread devoted to the 680i on this forum, but it hasn't gotten me far. Can anyone give me any pointers so that I could possibly hit 3.5 Ghz or higher with this jalopy? I've tried everything I can think of, and it won't even boot past 3.4 Ghz.
