Overclocking trouble: Intel E6420 on Asus P5B Deluxe with G.SKILL F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm relatively new to overclocking and I'm trying to get my CPU at 3.2GHz, but setting the FSB at 400 and CPU multiplier at 8x results in something rather strange - my computer reboots with a lower multiplier of 6. I have all voltages set on auto (which they probably shouldn't be - but the nature of this problem leads me to think that isn't the deal). All in all I'm a little lost - here's an overview of my setup:

CPU: Intel Duo 2 E6420 - stock cooling
RAM: G.SKILL F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800 CL4-4-4-12
Video: E-VGA 8800GTS 320MB
Case: Antec TX1050B
Cooling: 120mm back fan, 80mm front fan (92mm over the processor and a second 80mm for the front still coming)

My primary concern is getting my cpu overclocked, but any other pointers are quite welcome.

Well auto voltages will screw it up.

Also don't try that on stock.

You know you can't just pu in a high setting and say it will work because it worked with someone else right?

Also adjust the voltage yourself.

YOu need to start slowly and increase the FSB and test w=yourself. Don't just put things in

The reason why it shows a x6 multi, it's because the power saving features are enabled in the BIOS and if you don't have any issues with it, then leave those features on.

I have those features on and it does not affect my overclock at all.

Here, check it out: 360x6 and of course 350x9.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the info - I'm going to do a little more toying and see if I can get any improvements.
