Overclocking E8400 + Bloodiron Past 3.6GHz - Page 2

You either have a bad chip, or a bottleneck. You might try pulling one 2gig stick and trying the O/C. Then pulling the other stick and putting the other one back in just to see if one ram stick isn't causing the bottleneck.

Yea but it booted Windows
I think it's your ram. Try 1 stick.

+50 mV really isn't much. SO maybe that's your problem. I'm just guessing though because I'm running my E2160 at over +175 mV without a hitch.
