P5B-E not letting me change VCORE

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I'm taking a try at overclocking my E6600. So anyways, since I have some DDR2-667, I figure 3GHz (333 fsb) would be an easy and safe number to hit.

Anyways, I've been trying to get it to work, but the system keeps crashing tonight. I had the VCORE set to 1.325V. Well, after going into CPU-Z after a successful bootup, I realize that my voltage is still just stock 1.28V. My P5B-E just won't seem to want to change the VCORE when I tell it to.

So far, the only I've gotten it to work, is setting [Auto]. But then the P5B runs it at about 1.378V, and I'd prefer running lower voltages if I can.

Any clue as to why this might be happening?
