Default is this pathetic oc???

okay.. i have a Athlon 64 2800+ at 1.8 ghz and a k8v mobo.
it's about 35/42 celcius. (regular/heavy)

I'm trying to overclock it. I went up to 220 fsb. (9x220)=1980ghz. and the moment it loads windows, it starts rebooting. y is this happening? I didn't even overclock it that much

oh. so it could be the ram, or ram timing that's making it restart my comp?

if that happens, do i have to increase or decrease the ram thingies to see if it works

you should inrease the voltage on the ram. I think somewhere around 1.7 is good.

thx for the info musjunk.

i went back in to bios and looked at voltages.

I saw DDR voltage, AGP voltage, and CPU voltage.

I checked ddr voltage but there were only 3 options. 2.6, 2. 7, 2.8

you said around 1.7 was good but wut are these 2.6, 2.7, 2.8 voltages

will your computer still boot to the bios? at least just enough time so you can set the default settings really quickly. i know mine as an option to where i just press a button in the bios and it sets it back to factory settings.
