Need help overclocking an E8500

A Forum Thread for GameBanana


I need a little help overclocking an E8500 processor. The normal CPU speed is 3.16GHz. If I increase the CPU FSB Frequency by 30-40, my computer just dies and I need to reset it. Do I need to increase the Memory Ratio or something? The normal memory ratio at 3.16 is 800Mhz. Pics: Free Image Hosting at
