I have a watercooled e660 and even though the temps are low I cannot get it stable for long at 3.6Ghz. I have the voltage at 1.49, im not sure if its safe to increase it further. The 800MHZ ram is at 2.2v. The frequency is 400 (1600QB) and the rams at 800, im not sure if im getting the ratio right.
I have a asus striker extreme, im not sure why I cant get it stable with this system. Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks guys

What chipset motherboard do you use? Motherboard chipset is the biggest factor in overclocking, but for some reason many people don't think about it. :p

Look around the hardware forums, 3.2-3.4 GHz is generally as far as you can go with realistic stability with your processor.

i believe chipset is your limit being the 680i.its well know to not oc well at all.so you should feel lucky you got 400FSB out of it.some dont even get close.

other change to a intel chipset or live with it.
