Angry E6300 wont even stay stable at 2.1Ghz

You herd me !

Ona DS3R, Arctic Cooler Pro 7. It wont even stay stable at 2.1Ghz at 26Degrees C. My game crashes, and it only uses about 25% CPU.

Why could this be ?, even if i put voltage up.

reckon its my cheep generic PC5300 Ram ?

Whatever it is, unless i can sort it. Im gettin Q6600, now its only 175.

It could probably be your Random Access Memory. Try plugging another PC5300 and see if anything happens.

Yea, I can't think of any other reason besides your memory. That's a pretty low OC for that CPU.

Or maybe it could even be your PSU. I saw your signature and I've never tried or heard of that brand before.

I'd suggest getting good brand name RAM and a solid PSU.

Leave the voltage on stock, and drop a divider on that ram

Yeah, definatly a RAM problem. What are the specs you're trying to run it at? Fire up CPU-Z and save an html dump and show it to us. We'll find out what's wrong pretty quick that way.

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
