ive been overclocking my e2180@2ghz
i got it up to 2.7ghz for a while then after a restart it failed to start up again and reset itself back to 2ghz, now i cant get it back to even 2.4ghz since everystartup it has a issue and resets it.
i kept voltages on auto till after this happened when I tried 3ghz at 1.425 (stock is 1.325)
speedstepper is irrelevent turns out.... i have a 2tb western digital external harddrive anyway my computer wont boot while the external is plugged in AND the cpu is overclocked.
the harddrives fine on stock settings.
anyway i've resolved that as long as i boot up the pc without any external things i can keep my 2.7ghz overclock!
well unless anyone says this is a warning sign of somthing like not enough voltage or somthing.
well its not final il have to do some prime95 benchtests first but things look good
the powersupply is a 750watt and when im in windows im not geting any issues,
perhaps smeone can answer here ok so i ran prime 95
first core been running 20mins so far still no errors
second core after 10mins had a error

theres the log
i really want to stay at 2.7ghz
so can someone advise how to get this stable
can i run it like this? i play games and use internet thats it
should i be trying this with an increased voltage? my voltage is set to auto im not sure what it should be set to. cpu-z says its 1.376v
although its entirley possible cpu-z could be wrong.
