Welcome to OCN thumb.gif

You'll need to give us more to go by. What RAM and mobo are you using?

Fill out your specs using rigbuilder so we can all see.

To keep things easy, just raise the FSB to about 240, increase DRAM voltage to 1.65v, CPU/NB to 1.3v and CPU Vcore to about 1.4v.

The above will give you an OC of 3.6Ghz.
