Default Re: Having some issues...

Hey CaptnKill,

I've been an overclocker forever and have been admiring your overclock and new rig stories.

Keep in mind that you are 1 full Ghz above rated speed on your CPU. The fact that you are coming back to stock speed and having no problems tells me that maybe you're a little aggressive on what you are asking to get out of your e6750. Try coming down for awhile to 3 Ghz. If you're having no problems for a week or so at that speed, inch yourself upward.

From my experience, Overclocking is definitely more of an art than a science....
