Hello everyone, This is my first post in this forum and while I wish I could say I managed an overclock on my E2180 that I can be (somewhat) proud to post, I haven't. So I'm here hoping to get some advice on where I went wrong and what I can try. Here are my brief system specs: Intel E2180 MSI Neo2-FR Bios 1.6 OCZ Platinum Rev 2 DDR2-800 4 x 1 GB XFX 8800GT 512MB Corsair VX 550W I'm using a MSI Neo2-FR Bios 1.6 and the highest stable overclock I can get on my E2180 is 2.66 GHz (266 x 10). I managed to post at a variety of clockspeeds but my system restarts when loading windows. I 've tried lowering the multiplier and pushing the FSB and I think I found the FSB limit (around 385 x 8). I've tried increasing vCore all the way to 1.55v and managed to post at 330 x 10 but am unable to load windows...even then, I think it's way too high. I've also tried increasing VTT to 1.45v, NB to 1.475v, RAM voltage as high as 2.3v but the system remains unstable once I increase the multiplier. It cannot even boot at 320 x 9/10. Am I going wrong somewhere? Right now, I am at 375 x 8 = 3.00 GHz, vCore 1.475v and while it manages to complete Aquamark 3, it reboots on Futuremark tests and fails Orthos... I know that means it's unstable but I'm at a loss. Am I just unlucky to get a crappy E2180 or is my mobo or RAM holding me back? I thought of getting Crucial Ballistix or G-Skill to replace my OCZs since I've read posts on how bad they are for OCing (after I bought them of course... :/) but it doesn't seem to make sense since I'm not even running at their rated speeds. Currently, they are at DDR2-750. Please help. I don't want to OC like mad but I thought I could at least hit 3.2GHz (320 x 10) easy and so far, I'm disappointed.
