Bump the PCI Freq a few notches that will help stabilize your FSB. Keep it under 120MHz biggrin.gif


I highlighted below what you need to adjust!

Please sent us a screen shot of your SetFSB please.

I'm pretty much using the same hardware as you are. I'm using the same chip and PLL generator and I'm able to run the following Overclocks no problem.

3.5 GHZ
45 PCI
325 FSB

3.6 GHZ
50P PCI
330 FSB


3.7 GHZ
50 PCI
341 FSB


3.8 GHZ
60 PCI
351 FSB

3.9 GHZ
60 PCI
362 FSB
