go through your BIOS and look for something that says Overclocking or Frequency/Voltage Regulation or something, change voltage settings to manual

OMG people still use Ntune...that is the worst software ever

go into your BIOS and do it that way.

i always used:
1.55v MCP
1.60v SPP
1.55v HT

i used 1.28125v for the CPU for my 3.2Ghz OC. it ran 24/7 stable. also make sure you set your memory voltage for what the mfg recommends.

i had a 680i A1...Nosboost300 has it now.

i also had it stable up to 3.6Ghz and i ran it through various benchmarks at 4.0-4.1 with a tuniq for cooling.

I also used the P30 BIOS as they are currenty the best for overclocking a quad. you may need to upgrade to that version to get a better/stable OC

heres my settings i used for 3.2Ghz and DDR2-800 Crucial Ballistix ram

you will be fine with the p32's.

you just gotta work with the voltages and prime to get it stable.
