are you taking steps, or just jacking it all the way up? honestly i've had bad luck w/ my e6 processor. so if you're just jacking the clock up from stock to 2.5 ghz, then start taking it in steps. i've spent 3 days overclocking my machine to get it just right, priming everything and finding its voltage sweet spot....

BTW, Welcome to the Forum
He is on the money on the work your way up with smaller steps.
Important aspects are ...
Keeping your MAX full loat temp under 50c
A stable PS with 24a on the 12+v rail with 1 vid card and 32a with 2
Reducing your CPU's multiplyer to find the max speed of your RAM
Knowing the max vdimm (RAM voltage) your RAM can use
Underclocking your RAM with a huge divider while OCing the CPU
The purpose of underclocking the RAM when OCing theCOU and vise versa is to find each ones stable MAX then using the to get the two to run there highest known stable max together.
Otherwise, you don't know which of them is screwing with your OCing

yaya, and welcome to the forum.

also, be sure to knock your HT down to 3x, you don't need it set at 5x.

Thanks for the adive. You guys are totally right as far as me taking big steps. I previously ran an overclocked barton 2600+, but there were not as many variables invovled with that OC. I am trying to get my feet wet while trying to drive into the deep end at the same time. I got home from work knowing that I had to back off to 8.5x so I could check my email. haha. I mean, I really am diving in too strong.

But I am headed in the right direction, no? Again, there are the smaller points that I'm missing. Any time shared with my noobness is greatly apreciated. Now is time for sleep
