E6600 Unoverclockable.

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Alright I've used this forum to overclock my cpu before.
Its a Intel E6600 - 2.4Ghz Processor.
I've recently installed vista ultimate.
Now I've installed the OS roughly 17 times.
I.e - my system allowed me to overclock perfectly when ever I wanted to.
But now I overclock even one setting up and after bootup starts loading programs.
Instant freeze, Anyone else getting this?
Please help me out!

nVidia nForce 680i SLI LT
nVidia GeForce 7600GS - Driver updated to 160.04 Link
+ I believe that this could be the culprit as before this driver everything overclocked fine, today I upgraded it and wasn't able to overclock anymore. - May of just solved this myself.
Windows Vista Ultimate

I've never heard of a video card driver causing problems with a CPU overclock.

Update your BIOS to the latest.

what OS were you running before? vista may be too much load and causing it to overheat

^ Me niether, do you have another video card, if you do, and test that, then you can see if that really is the problem. Could you try overclocking without your optical drives or any other add-on stuff? You have to take time to test each product of yours to see if they really affect it, if not, then I am really not sure yet... of what it could be.

Could be vista.

I'll test another video card, Vista could be.
- I'd hate to reinstall vista but, God damn I'll do anything for this to work again.

make sure your PCI and PCI-express slot are SET to their respectable speeds....and not overclocking along with your FSB.

There could be a lot of factors to it, maybe you might need an update for drivers, bios, and etcetera? Unless it could be another sign. ^^;

Yes, every time you update video card drivers, you should check to see if there are any motherboard and bios updates as well as any other devices you may have on the computer...just to make sure everything is compatible to work together

My guess it could be a faulty: RAM or Power Supply.

Or the fact that your RAM is mixed. And 4 modules.

Hypertransport doesn't like that.
