Default e6300 overclock IRRITATION!

I am currently running 471MHz FSB with my setup (specs in sig) with 1.4V to the processor.

Now if I want to go to 475MHz FSB, it is totally unstable. I up my chipset voltages (NB by 0.15V, SB by .1 V, SB I/O by 0.2V and FSB by 0.1 V) I would say thats substantial. I also up my vCore from 1.4 to 1.475V, still unstable. I am sure its not my RAM because its running at something like 8-8-8-24 (i did this to count out it being my RAM that was not up to scratch)

Is this a FSB hole problem? Or will my mobo just not go any further, despite the voltages I use?

4MHz more should be surely obtainable through so much more voltage I would have thought?

Thanks.

8x multi locked im guessing? Thats a lot of FSB, its possible that you have just maxxed out what the board can handle.

Drop the multi to 6x and push up the FSB to see if it's the mobo or CPU that's holding you back.

Stock is 7. I can move it down to 6 in the BIOS.

Okay I will try that now. I hope I can get the 500MHz FSB that im craving for.

Well I think that its the mobo. I tried to get 3GHz with the 6 multi and it didnt POST, although I can get 3.3 with a 7 multi with the same volts.

This means that its the mobo, correct?

The fact that itsalso unstable with a 475MHz FSB on a 6 multi confirms that its the board.

Ya thats kind of what i figured it was. Very few boards can run much past 470 stable on the FSB.

I run at 400 x9. I havent bothered lowering the multi to find what my max FSB is, but i have managed a 3.8ghz OC but the temps were really bad.
