Specs: Windows 7, q6600 / 4gb
I know basic overclocking techniques and have got my Q6600 to 3Ghz. I can run a benchmark (3dmark6) and it is Stable. http://service.futuremark.com/compa...

ps. It might be this link.

Thing is, When i run a game, it locks up seconds in.

What gives?

Thanks in Advance!

9 x 333MHz with your RAM running at 667MHz? Memory timings & voltage manually configured? PCI-e locked at 100MHz, PCI locked at 33MHz? All Spread Spectrum options disabled? Did you increase the CPU voltage at all? Have you tested your system's stability by running Prime95? Not sure if you're running 32-bit or 64-bit Win7, so here's links to both versions of Prime:

The ram I upped to 700mhz, Timings where at either 4-4-4-12 or 5-5-5-12 (i forgot sorry), and the Voltage was upped to about 1.9v

Upped the Cpu Voltage
Pci-e at 100
I don't seem to have an Option for PCI
All spread disabled.

Haven't run Prime95 yet. I will do soon though.

I Just formatted and chucked Winxp 64x on and put my BIOS back to stock, Will give it another go tomorrow.

Il post thorough specs tomorrow if its unstable again, and hopefully you could take a look and tell me if there anything Blindingly obvious iv done wrong.

Not looking for a solid answer as such, Looking mainly for things I COULD try =]

"The ram I upped to 700mhz"

WHY? Is the CPU running at 350MHz (1400MHz FSB)? The CPU & RAM should run at 1:1 or 1:2...anything else is less than optimal. And why on earth would you run XP x64?

I upped the RAM FSB to 700 because it wouldn't boot without it.

I upped the voltage to 1.9 for the same reason.

And xp64x because I was being lazy and Couldn't be bothered to mess with Windows7 / vista.

RAM doesn't have a FSB. You need to clarify exactly which RAM you have & list the specs.

Ok sorry for being a bit vague, I haven't been at my Pc for the past few Posts.

Here are the settings I was using:

Voltages:
Cpu Core: 1.35625
Cpu fsb: 1.30
Memory: 1.95V (Default is 1.90)
Spp: 1.40v

Fsb
Cpu: 1345mhz
Mem freq: 705mhz
Timings: 5-5-5-12, 2clock

And the reason for Xp, is my motherboard does not like vista/7. To install it takes approx 3 hours (That's not an exaggeration)

Running a ECS nf650iSlit-A, Q6600 @ 2.40, 8800gtx SLI, 800W Antec PowerSuply
4gb Ram (2x 2gb)I don't know the Brand of my Ram or the actual speed of my ram (Its not printed on them) but I think its 667mhz.

windows xp pro 64x
360gb Barracuda 7200rpm Hdd

Anything else feel free to ask.

Il say again, Sorry for the Lack of accurate details the past few posts.

Your settings are less than optimal.

Hmm ok, Any input on what I could alter?
Im not looking for exact values, Just what I should be doing next.

Every Oc thread I see for my CPU use a more reliable board then mine, so I cant get much help from them. :(
