I'm having a hard time getting my new HTPC running at the desired speed of 3Ghz. The board supports an FSB of 1333mhz and I'm also using 1333mhz DDR3 RAM. The processor is my old Q6600 (G0) from my previous build, in which I kept it clocked at 3.2Ghz for at least 2 years, stable. With this build, I can't even get to 3G without the system completely freezing whilst booting the OS. I know it's not the memory because I have put in the manufacturer spec voltage and timings in manually ( 8-8-8-24 with a voltage of 1.5v for reference). Now, when I set the FSB to 333x9 the computer hangs up at the Win7 load screen, even with the vcore raised to ~1.3v; the same thing happens with a CMOS ratio/multiplier of 8. I don't get it... 3Ghz should be doable with this board but I can't seem to get there. I've also raised the volts on the NB a tad and that didn't have any affect on the hanging at all. Any help?
