I'm trying to overclock my q9550 with g41m-es2l to 3.0 ghz , but when i hit save the computer shuts down and starts back up about 2 times. On the third time it loads default clocks. I heard in another forum that this happens if you have USB devices connected , but I removed them all and only left the PS/2 Keyboard and it still happened. I also tried removing 1 stick of ram since i have mixed ram (totally different , 1gb 667 , 2gb 800) and it still happened. I never OC before (well i have but in 2005) so i might be doing something wrong. Here is what i did: just up the fsb from 333 to 360.
I'm using the stock cooler by the way. I just wanted to test and revert back since the temps are high(what do you expect on stock cooler?). Anyway , I'm getting an aftermarket cooler.
