I have a E6600 running at 2,7ghz...
The thing is.........
If i go above 300fsb the damn thing will start rebooting over and over again resetting to default at some point.

PSU: Corsair VX450W
Intel core 2 duo E6600 conroe
Corsair 2x DDR2 2gigs PC2-6400 (400Mhz)
Mainboard ASRock P5B Pro

Overclock: 9x300

And yes im new in overclocking, but it just seems wierd that i cant clock any higher........ is it the MOBO or not enough watt?

Other thing is that it is not stable at 2,7 and when i go back to defaults its still starts up like that, after an hour or so with reboots it runs smooth again............ i do not understand

This should be your first stop.
HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - Guide v1.6.1
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overc...

Next stop should be a guide for your particular motherboard. Google is your friend.

Go through the guides. Then go into the BIOS and change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in step with it. If you are at 3.0 GHz (333 MHz X 9), your memory clock should be at 667 MHz.
