I have recently purchased an P5N-D and i can't overclock it. When i try my computer starts fine but after windows is loaded and i'm my desktop it freezes and it makes a long beep that doesn't seem to stop. Even if i try to overclock it just a little bit this still happens and i mean just by 1mhz. Is there something wrong with my motherboard? I have also tried to change the voltage for everything the only way i can make it work is if i put it on safemode. I know there is something wrong with my Motherboard but no way my CPU it has been overclock on my older P5k.
Does this mean it is a software related problem? What can i do?
Try relaxing the timings on the ram first, set them way low and set the ram divider to 1:1 or as close to that as you can get. That should take the ram out of the equation for the most part. Most boards undervolt ram out of the box, which usually just forces them to run higher latencies, but they're already pretty high.
