  2. I'm really Serious
  3. So are we. :) Once you go through the guides and get a general idea of what you need to do, ask questions and you will get all the help you need.

    But we expect you to do some of the work.

    ----------
    Overclocking since 1978 - Z80 (TRS-80) from 1.77 MHz to 2.01 MHz
  4. 3.2MHz is not an overclock. It's an underclock. :) I know you mean 3.2GHz but could not pass it up. Start off by overclocking to 3GHz. that is 1333MHz FSB. Then increase it from there 100MHz.
  5. Ok Since I have a Maximus 2 Formula Mobo. It lets Me overclock it as easy as Pie. Its Overclocked to 3.0Mhz Stable, No Problem. But i would Like to go Further More.

    Any Ideas,
  6. increase your voltage on your CPU up one step till it is stable.
