Whats the deal?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I first overclocked my rig about 4 weeks ago.
I had it stable, ran it for a good week. Then suddenly it froze one day, and when i booted it up it wouldn't load into windows, and i had to lower my FSB by 1..
3 week later the same problem occured, but this time i had to lower it by 7..
What is the problem :S?

EDIT: MemTest Link

Just guessing...

What's the output on your 4-pin ATX connector (preferably w/a multimeter)?

CoolerMaster PSU? I don't think so.

Now, how about the Vc on that chip? And E6300 is only 1.86ghz and you have it up to 3.3ghz? That's a 1.4ghz increase, so either you need to step up the Vc a little more or your CPU is cracking.

Thank you on the "JUICE" Nasgul...no brainer when you go over 700MHZ

wow, i returned all settings to stock ..
It just randomly freezes up, at anytime .. could be during load-up, surfing the net, idle .. unbelievable , I havn't done memtest because i don't have a blank disc , but will soon.

Quite disappointed + RMA will take ages , because i live in Canada.. uhh
