Dolk, keep us updated. Hopefully the two cores aren't really "faulty".

Shug, I know some users here that did not have much luck with that board. Hopefully it treats you well.

Good luck

Foxy@OC'D, you are dealing with two other cores so that probably explains the difficulty. More cpu voltage will be required. How much have you overclocked your NB Frequency?

Good luck

Foxy@OC'D, sometimes overclocking the NB Frequency helps with the cpu overclock but apparently you've already done that

Have you tried backing down the NB Frequency a bit to see if that helps? How much cpu-nb voltage are you running?

Good luck

Foxy@OC'D, that should be plenty. Try dropping the multiplier a bit to see if that helps. Hopefully a few others will chime in soon with some suggestions.

Dolk, do you by any chance have your memory overclocked?

How much cpu voltage are you currently running? Is it safe to assume the cpu-z validation is correct in terms of Vcore? What is your NB Frequency with the above overclock?
the voltage is 1.36v
nb is 2000 mhz
acc +2 on all cores
the only thing i did was set the multi to 18.5 and turned off cool & quiet after i installed the freezer 7
what is a safe increment to bump the NB by ?
