Problems overclocking my system ;(

SO I have studied how overclocking works and I have been able to overclock my system to an extent. However, I have encountered problems and haven´t found any help by browsing a plethora of threads so I´ll just ask straight away, I hope you guys can help me out :hello:

I have a P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe mobo with 2GB 533MHz RAM and a Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz.

So I understand that my RAM sucks for overclocking, and otherwise my system should overclock perfectly.

I tested that my RAM can go up to 600MHz 5:5:5:15 and be stable with a 1:1 ratio with the CPU . I, ofcourse, want more :sol:

But whenever I try another ratio, my system refuses to start up! 5:4 and 4:3 don´t seem to work.

I can boost the CPU FSB further with the AI Overclock software, but the PC isn´t stable and won´t start up after I reboot and I have to set the defaults again.

So, any ideas other than buying faster RAM? :non:

  1. Other than buying faster RAM ? Yes you can buy new Mainboard such 680i mobo
  2. "Do or do not, there's no try" - Yoda.

    Personally, I wouldn't get a board that is not even close to being a good overclocker. Not to say your board can't o/c. It can. May take a bit of getting used to.

    Yup, I 2nd the above. This is cheap & o/cs well:

  3. Yea I could buy a new mobo, but mine is supposedly a top-tier mobo, it cost me 250€ when I bought it! :fou: So I don´t want to get rid of it yeat.

    Thanks for the replies though!

    But does anyone have any ideas how I could OC my current system more?
