Can't seem to get stable 975x mobo

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I am currently having trouble getting a stable overclock, my system specs are below and all I want to get is to 3.0Ghz, people have said that it is very easy to get to 3.0 with this board but I can't get it stable.

I set the burn in mode to 25% to set the Q6600 from 266 FSB to 333.6FSB, that did give me 3.0 ( 333.6 * 9) My system boots and everything, I ran prime95 for like 2 min and it came up with an error???...I ran Devil May Cry 4 and it freezes or crashes...

I have Vcore set to default wich I believe is 1.325 and memory settings on the pc8500 is 4-4-4-12 at 333mhz 1:1, I also tried a 4:5, and a 2:3 they all had errors or crashed.

I might be overlooking something? any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

The CPU will need a bit more voltage to run at 3.0. Kick it up a notch.

Just because someone else's chip could do it, does not mean that yours can too. Every chip is different. You can look at what other people have achieved with their chips, but take it with a grain of salt.
