try lowering the multiplier and running a higher FSB...if all else fails. you don't always need to run a 9x multiplier. you could bump it down to 8x and try it that way.

I havent ever tried anything lower than 1600 FSB on my 680i. Both of them i went straight to 1600

dropping it down to 8x makes no difference really. you'll just have to run a higher FSB

say 1600FSB (400MHz) with a 8x multi. = 3200MHz

try putting the multi. down to 8x and run a 1500FSB that'll be 3.0Ghz....and try running my voltages.

FSB: 1.5v
MCP: 1.55v
SPP: 1.60v
HT: 1.55v

start out with a pretty low CPU voltage in the 1.21ish range...if it gives an error raise the voltage up about 2 notches. just make sure temps dont go above 71*C in Coretemp.

I will try this as soon as i get home.

Btw... shouldnt ALL 680i mobos support quadcore overclocking?

If it is a 680i, not a LT... it should support it right?
