Losing Internet connection when overclocking

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

This is the first time I overclock my CPU and I need help. I have an Intel E8400 @ 3.0GHz. I was able to overclock it at 3.9GHz easily, but I don't have any Internet connection -__-... I tried with differents speed and it seems that when I pass 3.6 GHz I lose my connection. How can I fix this?

It seems to happen to Asus boards a lot. I had to buy a dedicated NIC because my onboard LAN would stop working after I overclocked.

Could it also be a sign of unstable OC though? I have had USB failures after over clocks, even when prime95 ran just fine for over 8 hours.
