i have my fsb upped from 266mhz to 317mhz which boots fine right... then i tried to up it to 325 or so and it starts giving me the "hard disk boot error, please insert boot disc" or whatever... any ideas?<br />
this is my first intel overclock... so work with me here lol...

Well have you tried upping the vCore? If that doesnt help then try to lower your mem as low as possible by using a divider to make it run slower than its stock speeds, which are what btw?

its an e6300 - 1.86ghz. default volts are 1.325V<br />
its 266*7=1866mhz<br />
anyways, i tried 2.21ghz at 1.000V and that ran fine (dual primed for awhile)... but 2.3ghz on default volts wouldnt boot...<br />
it says "hard disk boot failure please insert boot disk"<br />
<br />
my temps are like 2.21ghz 1.325V 31-40 (idle-load)<br />
and 2.21ghz 1.000V 27-35<br />

</div>no this cpu is supposed to get to 3ghz on stock voltage. if 2.21ghz would boot at 1.000V and i raised it to 2.3ghz and tried 1.325V (which is stock) wouldnt you think it'd work? my temp has never gone above 40C not on any voltage or clock setting.<br />
<br />
i meant to say 2.3ghz wouldnt boot on stock voltage... which is 1.325V compared to the 1.000V that 2.21ghz booted on.<br />
my memory is already as low as it can be... which is under its stock settings..

Yea I see where you are coming from, it cant hurt a lot to try upping teh vCore some one just to see if it will boot, if it doesnt then its something else, like mobo or HDD/XP gone bad?

well it didnt go bad... because i can just go in the bios and change it back.<br />
<br />
ill try upping the vcore a bit but i really dont think it'll help.<br />
yea, it didnt help. in fact i upped fsb to 400 just to see what would happen... same error but no sign of instability besides that.

What is your current ram speed, what is the stock ram speed, what is the current timings what is the stock timings what is the current Ram voltage what is the ram rated for?? What are all the settings at in the bios? The more info you supply the more info you will get.

1.00V? That isn't stock Vcore, is it? Give it some more Vcore (1.4 probably, check temps too) and try again.

nobody said 1.000V was stock voltage. thats me undervolting it because it'll then run cooler.<br />

so at stock voltage... 1.325V... it won't overclock anymore because of something other than the cpu. this much i know because it'll boot at a MUCH lower voltage (that being 1.000V) at 2.21ghz, but it won't boot at 2.26ghz at 1.325V.<br />
<br />
everything straightened out for you or would you like me to make a new thread about it?

yea i thought about that... maybe ill pop in the windows disc just to see if it even detects the hard drives. worth a try i guess.<br />
<br />
my guess would be its the pci bus being overclocked... which is bad...<br />
or i need a bios update.

try to disable those features in bios. And why is the PCI bus overclocked. If you can try to fix its speed.

there arent any spread spectrum options, but pretty much anything i dont use is disabled including virtualization technology etc...<br />
im gonna try locking the pci-e bus down but if i remember i tried that before... w/e
