My first OC was with an AMD Athlon X2 3800+ (stock 2.0GHz) and my Dad told me not to take it past 2.2GHz. I put it all the way to 3.0GHz and the motherboard died 2 days later. Bought a new motherboard and put it at 2.8GHz where it ran stable until I upgraded to my sig rig.

My very first overclock was on this very chip! 2.9 i think i got it to. I think that is very respectable for my first ever attempt (with a little guidance from my uncle)

e6600 2.4ghz @ 3.4ghz
dfi infinity 975x/g
i followed oc guides and copied other peoples settings. didnt know what i was doing. maybe it was a thermalright ultra 120 heatsink? i was foolish.
that e6600 is sitting in a gigabyte dq6 motherboard with 2 ati radeon 4870 crossfire graphics cards. its collecting dust sitting in my closet.

My first overclock was with my current built i5-2500k. I used Sin's guide for the Gigabyte boards and everything went pretty smoothly. I am stuck on F3 bios (so I do not have llc options). I went right to 4.5GHz (stable), was able to boot into Windows until 5.0Ghz (blue screened when trying to load Windows). I upped the voltage a bit and was able to get into Windows and ran Intel Burn Test for 30 loops (max temp around 64 C). Passed but did not pass Prime 95 Blend for 2.5 hours.

Tried with more volts and at 4.8Ghz/4.7Ghz with various volts, but none would get past 2.5 hours. Even with PLL override enabled my volts would drop too much. Finally stable at 4.5Ghz and 1.355 volts (max temp 54 C with Silver Arrow).
