having issues with overclocking q9550 on DS4 x38

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i'm having issues withing overclocking the CPU in this rigg:

Q9550
Gigabyte EX38-DS4
4x 1 gb DDR2 1066
500GB hard drive 7200 rpm
285GTX
600W Seasonic Modular (one of the M series)


I also had RAM issues which i sort of fixed by downclocking it to 800mhz and raising the voltage on MCH.

MY issue now on the motherboard is overclocking the CPU:

whenever i attempt to overclock the CPU even by 5mhz the PC BSODs. It is very consistant.

All i did was go into the BIOS and raise CPU FSB by 5mhz, 10mhz, and a bit more. but each time it just BSOD's.

Mine overclocks fine, but there is a limit to how far i can get the Q9550.
I seem to hit the wall at 451 fsb. What bios are you running and have you set your ram voltage and timings.
