hey guys

i need help overclocking my q8200

my motherboard is the nforce 790i ultra sli, so i set my rated FSB to 1800 and left my memory at stock 1333. I set my voltages to,

1.33750 for cpu core
1.40 for the FSB
1.60 for the memory
1.45 for the SPP

everything else is untouched and i get a stable overclock. i want to get my cpu to 3.5ghz, but then i chane my rated FSB from 1800 to 2000 and bump up the vcore voltage to 1.45 the cpu will not run prim 95 for a sec but will work without any load for hours.

the idle temps are ~45c
and load ~50c

but i don't thinks the problem is with the temps.

Any help?? :eh?:

3.5ghz is around where other people land with that cpu but on different boards. if you want higher your going to need a cpu with higher multi. thought you do need more voltage could be SSP needs more for that high a fsb.
