Why wont the q8200 overclock more?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey!
I have a gigabyte ep43-ds3l MB, and a intel q8200. I have overclocked it to 2.9 ghz at a slight voltage change. But when i increase the fsb over 415, the computer wont boot. Why is it so? Not enough energy for the cpu? I have run it a day on prime95 and it is running fine. Have seen that many q8200 have gone over 3ghz...

Your motherboard is the limiting factor..

P43 motherboards usually top out @ 400 to 420MHz FSB..

If you had P45 motherboard you could`ve hit higher FSB..


CHEERS..
