Ok, VCore was the problem. Lowered it to 1.4125, and everything works fine. Will get those programs you suggested. Thanks!
Keep lowering it, keeping the FSB at 375. That will allow your CPU to live longer, generate less heat, draw less power and allow you to overclock other parts more easily.
About what voltage would you recommend? 1.4000, or into the 1.3's, or lower?
Well I have E6400 at 3.4GHz at 1.31V but I AM using an ASUS P5N-E SLI after all. My E6600 is at 3.9GHz at 1.36V on a DFI LANPARTY UT ICFX3200-T2R/G and my QX6700 is at... 3.0GHz only at 1.36V on an EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR 680i.
Thank you so much for your help!
I am the type of person that, after trying something, am able to learn about it better. Now that I understand the basics of what how they work together, I can better understand the parts themselves.
Looking at your info, I think that I should lower mine to 1.3875(don't want to start off with too much in the beginning!). Thank you again!
My new compt, E4300 on EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 680i SLI with ASUS silent Square, Crucial ballistix tracer DDR2 PC-8500, Raptor X 150GB, 7600GT.
Overclocked @ 27.991Ghz, FSB @ 1244Mhz and Memory @ 622Mhz for normal use.
It's 62 F outside, so why not try overclock it to the MAX
Overclock to 3.2GHz and it works fine, boot up to XP and Run PCMARK05.
btw I pluggin the memory on dual channel mode (I plugged it onto the same color memory slot) but CPU-Z is telling me that I plugged it in on slot 1 and 2, should it supposed to be slot 1 and slot 3? how do I check my system running on dual channel mode?

that is some cool necro
I'm with Akofc though, why do you risk losing you warranties with a new PC ? wouldn't you hate having to buy your video card or processor anew if you are unlucky and a problem happens ? (unless there is no way for the techies to prove that the card you sent to them for refund had been overclocked, which i doubt a little :s)
The same question people always ask,
My wife is beautiful, but why the hell do I feel a need to ogle at Jessica biel?
Well it's simple,
because bigger, faster, better, sexier, is better =)
Besides with a $100 chip you can get performance close to that $300 chip or maybe even better by overclocking.

really ? i think you are overestimating the final gain... a lot.. (though i may be wrong)
i would personally dislike buying a 200$ proc instead of a 240$ (or even 300$) one, overclocking it so it has the same perfs than the second, and see it die afterwards, because i would have to spend another 200$ for the same thing while, all in all, i would have better bought a 300$ one..
Maybe you are just more optimistic than me
Of course there's risk, but as long as you don't go overboard and know what you're doing, it should be OK. Never heard so many people complaining about the disadvantage of OCing. Besides the video card that many vC companies are selling is OCed, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EVGA. As you can see OCing is recommended =)
