Hello. Yesterday I tried to overclock my E3300, but with no luck. My mainboard is Biostar p43b-a7 and I have 2x2 GB DDR2 RAM memory.

I tried to do everything with BIOS. Heres my bios.
My CPU Frequency settings is set to 233, it cant go higher- this is my problem when i set it on higher my computer stops working.
My CPU Voltage is at 10%-max 15
FSB Voltage-0.2V max 0.3
Chipset Voltage-0.2V max 0.3
DRAM Frequency-can be 667 or 800 or manual.

Thanks for the help!

And by the way,do i need another cooler? I read that my E3300 is a "cool chip"

What is your full system specs (like your PSU)? I recommend you download Temperature monitor software before you start to overclock (I use Core Temp), I'd suspect your CPU will idle at around 30ish and under load around 60ish.

Check the NB on the board to make sure that it isn't running to hot. A overheated chipset is usually the first reason why many 775 era systems don't overclock very far, the other is the ram.
