Default MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI Processor Overclocking, Completely Unstable!?!

hi
i tried to over clock my AMD64 3200+
on this board and i got major problems the sytem would not boot anything above 2.04
and and even at that it was completely unstable. ill have major crashes where im doing stuff and bam the video goes out and theres a loud noise over the speakers like if a jet engine was coming to a stop like booooom....zzzzzzz....zz...z! then it would get lower and lower and cut off completely. i then reset bios the set default processor timings then it boots!?!
i enabled cool and quiet, and this board is suppose to be able to handle alot, let alone a little over clocking. my processor core is the winchester series 90mn and i hear it overclocks fairly well, to a stable 2.6. some one help me>>>>> if its the motherboard ill get a new one

Sean

you gotta turn cool and quiet off if overclocking...

and you have to turn your htt to x4

and you may even have to raise your vcore if need be

look at my rig

have you got decent ram? lower the HTT to x4 like nosboost said, because if you multiply your fsb, in my case 250 by 2, then muliply that by the HTT it cant go much over 2000.

I didnt have to raise any voltages until i was about 2.4ghz

dont just up the fsb from 200 to 240, work your way up there. Have you read the how to overclock sticky at the top of this forum?

lol, maybe when you do , you need to do some reading mate. you need to work the FSB up in 5mhz increments and run some stability tests each time. look for an option in BIOS like LDT multiplier and unless it has an auto setting change it to 4x. seeing as you seem to have very little experience with overclocking the only way this is really going to work is with a lot of research on your part and trial and error.

not everything can be taught
