Trying to OC my Core2Duo E4300

Well, I've seen lots of topics on the E4300 round here, I guess it's a great OC'ing CPU.
Anyway, I want to OC my CPU, I can get it from 1.8 to 2.2 Ghz using the A.I Overclock feature of my ASUS P5N32-E SLI Motherboard, but I want to go higher, but not sure how.
I've tried increasing the FSB, but as soon as I put it over 1000 FSB, the system hangs at the BIOS Menu screen (Where you press Del to enter setup)
But anything under that FSB is fine....
What's going on, and can anyone help please?

give us all of your system specs, ram, psu, cooler ect, we will help you out more then, basically, up your mch by 0.1 or 0.2, up your cpu to 1.45v, put your ram at 1:1 and run it at 2.1v and you should be able to clock to 333fsb if you have a cooler.

PSU - OCZGameXStream 850W PSU

He means in your BIOS put the CPU voltage at 1.45v, and put the memory at 1:1 with the FSB (This means your memory and CPU FSB are the same), and put your memory voltage up by 0.1v.

Ok, well I guess by 1:1 you mean linked, I had that, but as soon as I went over 1000 FSB the PC wouldn't start..

And I've been talking to people and they've said that running the RAM 1:1 with the CPU at higher FSB's is going to kill it....
Any help?

how is it gonna kill it... even if u higher ur fsb to 400... you would be runnin ur ram stock... since ur ram is 800 (400 dual channel) .... u wont even have to overclock your memory...
May 27, 2007 4:18:40 PM

Huh?
May 27, 2007 4:50:57 PM

you said people told you, you'd kill it, what are you going to kill by running your ram and your cpu asynchronous?
May 27, 2007 5:04:22 PM

They said that because my RAM was 800 Mhz or something, that going too high was going to damage it...
May 27, 2007 5:11:51 PM

your ram is 800 (400 dual channel=800)

if you EVER overclock your processor to 3.6, if you use a 9x multiplier you would have to do 400FSB and to run it asynchronous you woul dhave your ram @ 400 which is STOCK, so you wouldn't be killing anything...right now i have pc6400 ram, underclockd... runin @ 667 because my fsb is runnin @ 333 therefore my ram is runnin @ (333 dual channel=667) hope i made myself clear enough :], so basically if u have 6400 ram dont even worry about it

btw i have the same e4300 thats why im telling you this :D  http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/3413/untitledqb5.jpg ^_^

Thanks for trying to explain, but I don't get OV speak :D 
May 27, 2007 7:10:38 PM

let me put it this way, if you have pc6400 ram, no matter how much overclock your processor as soon as you run it 1:1, and with a 9x multiplier, you won't have to overclock your ram. unless you go over 400fsb which i dont think u will.

Thanks, I've got it to work and am currently overclocked at 2.7 Ghz from 1.8 :D
