Hello, I am currently running an Intel Q6600 G0 Step on a P45 motherboard. This also comes with a 2GBx1 Crucial Ballistix 1066 DDR2 and 2 HD 5770 on crossfire. Currently my Q6600 is running at 3.10Ghz from its original clock of 2.40Ghz. Every time I turn on my computer it will turn off by itself and after a few seconds it will turn back on again. This only happen every time I overclock. When I switched it back to its normal clock this does not happen.

Any feedback will be a big help. Thanks.

Obviously your OC settings are not dialed in right, you can list exactly what you're doing to get your OC, but one thing important in OCing the 775, is manually setting your memory voltage and timings to manufacturers specs, you can play with those after acquiring a stable OC.

My current timings on my Crucial Ballistix DDR2 1066 is 5-5-5-15 and as per checking on CPU-Z its at 2.2 volts. Now on bios its on auto so I assumed I am looking at the correct timing and voltage since these are their manufacturer specs.

I even did a test using OCCT for an hour ang its stable. Played NFS: Shift, COD MW2, Dirt 2 and GTA 4 and I am not experiencing any lag. Its not crashing as well.

I am just worried why its like that every time I turn it on.

Then they're not manually locked in.

After manually setting it on manual @ 2.2 volts, system became unstable.

Try dropping the voltage to 2.0V, Newegg says the voltage is 2.2V but the quote below is from Crucial website and it states 2.0V.

Helping you will be easier with all the rest of the puzzle pieces visible, meaning your full system specs, including the M/B, CPU cooling, OP/SYS you're running Etc.

When you said,

, does that mean you bought this machine pre-assembled, or built it yourself?

Do you have all the software and manuals for the hardware?

OK so list your system specs?

GTGTW now will check back later.

Well, your PSU has 4 12v rails, could be a load balancing issue. ie too much on one rail. Keep the system OC'd, but take out on of the GPUs to see if that changes anything.

With both GPUs installed have you tried booting with a more modest OC like 2.8?

You listed 2GBx1 Crucial Ballistix 1066 DDR2 as your RAM, but when you bump up the FSB with your OC what's the final speed?

I event went to as high as 3.60Ghz @ 1.52 vcore. My ram speed is always set to 1066 @ 2.20 volts.
