Overclocking a Intel E8400 Freezing computer Tags: CPUs Overclocking Computer Intel Last response: November 9, 2008 11:05 PM in Overclocking Share monkeyman23555 November 9, 2008 4:18:01 PM Hello, so I built this rig: Intel E8400 (3.0 Ghz) EVGA 780i Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF (5-5-5-15, 1066 Mhz) Vista 64 with some other stuff thats not really related... I have been trying to overclock my CPU to about 3.6 Ghz, however every time I even increase the FSB a little bit my computer freezes up about 1 minute after I logged in. For example I just tried: 9 x 350 Mhz = 3.15 Ghz, and it froze after one and a half minutes... I raised the FSB by only 20 Mhz. Has anyone encountered this problem before?

I think with your current ratio, a 20mhz increase will make your memory run at 1120mhz, which is probably why your system is locking up. monkeyman23555 November 9, 2008 10:51:43 PM No that was not it, I finally figured it out Some software from Nvidia was screwing with my overclock, so it crashed the entire system... Now it is working perfectly, currently 4.1 Ghz @ 1.28V @ 63C Thanks anyways... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
