Yea and im angry because when i try to overclock over 3,4 the system is very unstable and i cant find good voltages. I know it takes time to find but i was trying 5 hours and still cant find good settings.
Well , keep trying
Finding the right voltages is very easy if you overclock properly... follow some of the guides here on OCN and 3.8 GHz shouldn't be too hard to attain.
When you OC, you need to isolate the component which you are testing - never overclock and test more than one component at a time, that way when the system fails, you know at what point the PC needed more voltage, and to exactly which component. Adding voltage should and will never be a guessing game if you OC in the correct sequence.
Let me know if you need a link to some good guides, or some help getting to 3.8 GHz+ and also don't forget to overclock that Northbridge as high as it will let you go - it will make for very big gains in CPU performance, specifically in the area of gaming.
Finding my final max stable 24/7 OC in my sig took me about a full week of testing, maybe a little more. It's not going to be easy, it will be worth the free performance. Luckily most of the time is not spent in front of the PC, just testing for stability after each change.
