I've read everywhere that the e2140 can be easily overclocked to 3.2.
I have overclocked it to 2.2, but anything else and it doesn't start.
What should I do?
I'm looking to get it to at least 2.8

This is stock clocked at 1.6
Its a core two duo
When OC'd at 2.2 the temps are 40*C
Thats pretty cool(cold) isn't it

I tried to get to 2.6
NOPE!
Do I need a better fan or better PSU or what???

If you are overclocking by upping the FSB then maybe your ram isn't cutting it?
Ram might be configured at a higher ratio then 1:1. If so try lowering it.

You would need something like pc 6400 (800mhz) ram to get to 3.2ghz with ram at 1:1 ratio (assuming multi is 8x) but it depends on what multiplier your cpu uses.
