I tryed overclocking my e8400 from 3.0 to 3.6 ghz , i did this by leaving the voltages at auto , setting the memory to linked and increasing the fsb by 10 each time then restarting untill finally it got to 3.6.
it worked ok for like an hour of playing the temp stayed low only slightly higher (37 degrees c vs 35 degrees c) than when it was at 3.00ghz but all of a sudden it froze. so i restarted it but when i started up it froze again before everything was loaded.
So i went in the bios and reset eveyrthing at default to see if it would fix it but when i restarted it, again it froze after startup.
I started in safe mode with networking and it worked fine, it didn't freeze. i restarted it and started in normal mode and it worked and didn't freeze....untill i restarted the computer again then it would keep freezing at startup unless i started it in safe mode, rebooted and then started in normal mode
So basically the only way i can run it normally is by running in safe mode then restarting the computer into normal mode >.<
Any suggestions for help?
thx very much
e8400 @ 3.00ghz
