PSU neded for higher OC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ive got a E6850 at 3.7Gig, and want to go higher, i have a Coolermaster Hyper 202 cooler, which cools the cpu overclocked to 3.7 at 35deg idle and 39deg load. ifi take it any higher the computer does not turn on constantly, it goes on and off then resets its FSB back to its origional, does this mean i need a new PSU?

Not really, it probably means you have reached the limitations of cpu, motherboard or mem.

try more voltage to FSB/NB/CPU.

A good 400W psu should be enough for your rig so I don't think this is a PSU issue. When you push the cpu higher especially above 3.7G, you need to make some adjustment to your the voltage of vcore, nb and ram as well as ram speed or timing.
