Problems Overclocking Core2Duo E8500
Alesis_neo posted a topic in Overclocking and CoolingI can't overclock my E8500 over 3.37 ghz, 9.5x355 is the highest i can go without my pc not being able to boot, i've read that you can normally go up to 3.8ghz without altering vcore, what can be going wrong? Is using it at 3.37ghz with RAM at 1156mhz even recommendable? It runs stable, have had no problems at all, i just dont think 3.16 to 3.37 is much of an overclock.. I want to get to 4.0ghz My PC specs: Biostar G41D3c Motherboard Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Nirvana Zerotherm nv120 Cooler Kingston Value Ram 1333D3N9K2/8GB Dual Channel Kit (Timings set at 7-7-7-20 running at 1156mhz) Zotac GT520 1GB Video Card M-Audio Sound Card 500GB Hitachi Sata Hard Drive Not sure how many watts my PSU runs, doesnt have any info on it I'd appreciate any kind of help
