Default Overclocking E2140!

I have tried to overclock my Intel dual 2 core E2140 the second time now and I can not get around increasing the 1600Ghz to more than 1800Ghz (or some where around there). Each time my computer tells that it has problems booting and indeed the reset button some times wont work. I am afraid of damadging the system so what do you think? Is it possible to overclock this processor to some thing like 3000Ghz?

what mobo do you have? it is possible to get that to 3Ghz but you would need a nice mobo and some good cooling.

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD

Highly doubt that he could get another 1.4ghz out of that chip with better parts.

With insane voltage i can only get my e2200 up to 3.4 max and thats only good for a quik bench run

My motherboard is conroexfire-esata2! I googled on how to change vcore voltage and it showed some hardware hacks and I am afraid of going that far.
