First of all , hi .
Im not going to upgrade my pc for cata by monetary means , so i thought about overclocking the cpu .
After reading on some forums and watching many tutorials i tried to change some basics to up to 3.6ghz. Yet in my bios , after setting overclock to manual , many variables essential to do it and present in the demonstrations i saw arent available to be modified . Im aware my board isnt specialy made for OC yet she offers many features regarding it thus the surprise.
Anyway i try the auto afterwards , 5% to 20% boost available. From 5 to 10 thepc becomes slightly instable , i had few errors while playing Stalker. From 15 to 20 , pc doesnt launch which is very surprising unless...well i thought my 2gb of mem may be a possible cause?
I disabled c1a , step speed and other energy saving stuff said to cause some instability , no results.
Any hint would be great.
board , Asus P5G41C-M intel g41
processsor, core2duo e8400 3.00ghz
memory , 2gb ddr2 dominator 1066mhz
( i had previously 4gb ram on my asus p5k )
