Hi all, I never asked for help before now. My mobo is an Asus P5G41T-MLX and I know its a budget MB, however I wonder if its really the mobo the issue. I cannot get past 274Mhz FSB and I tried many things like lowering the multi. Raised my voltage to the upper safe limits but still can't get post above 274mhz. This is driving me crazy. My CPU is an Intel Core 2 Duo E5800 3.2Ghz and I did OC it to 3.7Ghz with a multi of 13.5 but settled for 3.6Ghz to be very stable under IBT and OCCT. For this OC to work,I needed to up my 1333 Kingston Ram voltage to 1.60volts which is their upper safe limit. I hear folks pushing the FSB to 340 and 343 on this MB yet I get a failed voltage or OC warning during post. What did I forget to do?
