hey guys i'm new here but read some of the posts here and i thought you guys could help me.

ok so i got the q8200 stock 2.33GHz and have overclocked it to 3.15GHz so far but know it could go higher.

the temps are idle 35c and 45 load

i have the nforce 790i ultra sli motherboard so i put the FSB at 1800 from 1333 and the memory at 1600 from 1333
the voltages are:
cpu core= 1.39375
cpu FSB= 1.35
memory= 1.650
spp= 1.45
mcp= 1.600

when i put the FSB up above 1800 the computer boots fine but under load it freezes
any help??

hmm im not that much into overclocking, espessialy on 775 cpu's.
But freezing sounds like too high of a clock / too low voltage.

Anyone aggrees?

Im gonna go ahead and say that the motherboard it stoping you a bit, do you have good cooling on the cpu aswell as good airflow in the rest of the pc? Also what PSU are you currently using?

Intel Q9300 @ 3,6Ghz
Asus P5Q Deluxe
Corsair XMS2 @ 960Mhz
XFX Radeon HD5850 Core @ 940Mhz / Mem @ 1250Mhz
