I think you missed the part in my OP where I said that buying new parts is not an option at this point. Why is that always the solution? "Oh, just go buy a $300 mobo and a $300 CPU, that'll solve your problem"....If I had the means to do that, I would've and I never would have had a need to ask for help....I'm trying to do the best that I can with what I have....Can anyone here help me with that?

Are you anywhere near San Diego/El Cajon/Santee? If not then I might have a difficulty with getting a mobo from you....

I didn't say get a $300 board. I'm sure you could find a board for $20 if you put some effort into it. And my point was more along the lines of "your board isn't going to let you do a damn thing. If you want to oc, you need a new board."

Wasn't trying to be an *******. And yes, I missed the "I dont want to buy hardware (new or used)" <~~ paraphrased. This thread is long as ****. Stuff gets missed.

Ok, let me lay it out for you:

- I DO appreciate you responding, and trying to help
- Mobo was just purchased a little over 2 weeks ago (store only has a 7-day return/exchange policy)
- I'm not made of money, nor do I have a disorder where I can pull money from the holes in my body
- If a 775 mobo could be found for $20 (without buying a potentially dead one from ebay), I'd probably have it - and it probably would be worse than the one I have as this one was about $45 brand new....
- Unfortunately, until my income situation improves, I'm stuck with what I have.
- I would LOVE to buy new stuff, but it's not an option right now.

Why don't you RMA with ASRock directly if you can't with the store?

Can I RMA for a better board? If not, then I don't really think that fits this situation....

Ugh thought I was stable after passing IBT and 24 hours of Prime95 with no crashes, workers stopping, or WHEA errors.

Handbrake seems to think otherwise. Throws a bunch of WHEA errors followed by the program crashing. Upping voltage quite a bit more (another 0.020) seems to have stabilized it.

I thought IBT and Prime would be harder on the system than Handbrake, but I guess not.

I wasn't really aware that there was something wrong with the board....I'm not exactly sure where that idea came from....Better new boards (socket 775, not enough money for a new CPU also) cost more than the one I have....

And again, buying stuff is kinda difficult when I don't have the funds to put towards it.....Is there anyone that can offer any advice about my CURRENT setup, besides buying parts?

It seems like I picked the wrong place to try to get OC help....After reading a bunch of the posts on this site, I thought that someone might be able to give me better advice than buying new components....
