  2. G41 is not meant for overclocking, it has integrated graphics and it's micro-atx.

    You could try changing your fsb/dimm ratio so that the memory runs at or under it's rated speed, this could be the reason for your failed overclock.

    Gigabyte g41 can overclock just fine
  4. Sure if you know how to unlink the graphics and dimms from the fsb.
  5. i have tried everythin fsb standard is 333.00 x8 most i can change it is 340.00 x8 if i move it to 341 and it just cuts off before monitor is gonna turn on and then reboots i tried changin memory speeds i think it says rated 1333 and its at 1035 or somethin like that i tried changin voltage but wen i boot up cpuz says its at like 1.03
