Hello everyone,

This forum has been very helpful to me but I can't figure out why my computer keeps on freezing when I OC. I've been trying to OC my i7 920 to 3.4GHz but when I try to run prime95 it keeps crashing after a couple of min. I followed different guides but it just keeps crashing after a couple of min. At first I thought I had a bad CPU but I ran prime 95 on stock (2.6GHz) and it ran fine but when I OC, that's when is fails. I decided to use the Dummy OC feature on my BIOS but that also crashes when I run prime95. I'm a noob when it comes to OC so please be easy on me. Some of the guides I've used,2268-3.html

The reason I used this as a guide is because he had the same specs as me.
i7 920
6g DDR3 ram
Windows 7 32bit
700 PSU

Thanks for the help,

your system different guide , just same the way..!
- Disabled EIST, disabled other C state
- check memory seting, raise Voltage RAM up to 1.65 V max
- always control temperature

6GB RAM overkill to System 32bit (max 4Gb).. better you can run at 64 Bit (if you like it )
