Minor instabilities oc'ed Q6600?
Heey guys, like earlier posted, I managed only to oc my Q6600 to 3.0GHz due to my mobo! Here are the specs:
MSI P6N nForce 650i SLI V2
Q6600 C2Q @ 3.0 GHz G0-stepping
Tuniq Tower 120 CPU cooler
TakeMS 2 GB DDR2 RAM PC6400
2 x MSI NX8800GT 512mb OC (660/1950)
FSB: 1333 MHz
Memory clock: 667 MHz
CPU VCore: +0,0250v
FSB VTT core: 16%
PCI-e bus: 100
Any higher the system will randomly reboot...
But the problem now is some signs of still minor instabilities! I managed to pass prime95 for like 9 hours without error. But when I install programs I often got some copying/CRC errors. Also, when I play games, there are often sound issues + error's in the consoles. Especially playing Bioshock is a real pain, because the sound is all messed up when oc'ing. If I jump back to stock, all error's/issues disappear. Tried upping the VCore, NB + VRam variously with no difference. Also tried to run memtest with 100% passed.
Maybe I am not the only one?! Anyone can help?

crc errors = bad news.. you probably have some corrupted stuff laying around from failed oc's.. better start doing allot of scandisking , or possibly settle on a overclock you deem stable, then start with a fresh install of windows etc..L737B286 1.225VID Q6600@3.6ghz 1.400v bios
