What I meant was that raising it the smallest amount possible wouldn't kill it. My post says that he should try to raise the vcore by the smallest amount possible. A slight vcore increase will technically do damage, but it won't shorten the lifespan in an amount that you wil notice. Once you get way above the small amount I am talking about, you will start doing damage that will severly shorten the lifespan.

OK so I figured out the problem. I don't think it has anything to do with overclocking. Recently the intermittent problem became all the time and it is related to my printer....I had to share this:

If my Canon MP390 multi-function printer is connected to a USB port it freezes (ABIT splash screen) with a post message of 50 (USB) or 52 (Memory reset) (I'm not sure why sometimes it is 52).

If anything else is connected to the USB ports (and not the printer) everything is fine.
If I try to connect the printer to different ports it still won't boot (even the USB add-on card the motherboard comes with).
If I unplug the printer when it is frozen it proceeds to boot.
If I plug the printer back in when it boots, the printer works fine.
The printer worked fine on my old computer.

I wish that were my problem with overlocking... I got issues that's all I have to say. Good luck on future overclocking! Thats a good OC for stock voltage btw.
