Default Re: Overclocking and my computer

you'll have to increase the voltage to hit 3.6. You should be able to hit 3.0~3.2 on stock voltage. Start with 3.0, test it for 6 hours, and if it doesn't crash then pump it up to 3.2 and see how it fares. Also you shouldn't really increase the voltage much (if any) on the stock hsf. Only because the stock heatsink is designed to cool at the stock settings, not overclocked at all.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
