3800+ capped at 2.2ghz?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I notice that a lot of other people have gotten it to 2.4ghz with stock cooling and beyond without a sweat. So I picked up a XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 in hopes of being able to overclock beyond the noted speed. I followed the following guide: http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html. I believe the CPU multiplier is unaccessible through bios on this motherboard, so I've been tweaking around with the reference clock mainly; and hitting the wall at about 223. Anything beyond resets before Windows loads. In addition, I've tried lowering the HT multiplier to 4 and 3 to no avail. Any suggestions?
