Re: Help overclocking my quad core?
To hit 3.0Ghz you would be fine with 1.35V on the Core... no need for 1.4Volts unless you are still not stable. As said before, turn C1E option off... also... how high are you acctually able to go on the FSB/CPU before it craps out and what are the voltages at this time? Also, I am not sure what your rating on the memory is, but try upping the voltage on the memory. Also, run your memory at a slow speed to match the CPU, take it down to 667 stepping speed or even 533 stepping speed to match a 1:1 ratio with the CPU. I acctually gained performance by doing this. The memory runs slower, but in sync with the CPU and at tighter timings.
