OK so yesterday my friend and I decided to try overclocking our cpu's. we got the 6400+ black ed. to 3.698 ghz. and i knew it wasnt very stable but we were going for numbers. we would of been able to got past 3.7 but it would of crashed soon after. but it was running under 40C
Set up
M2n32 Deluxe Wifi
4 gigs of ocz ddr2 6400
Air Cooling (very good Air cooling) we might try my liquid next time.

CPU FSB 231
multiplier 16x
HT 2X
cpu Voltage (High) 1.55V stock 1.35-1.4

does anyone feel that i should increase the voltage on the north bridge because i didnt try that.
also would changing the ht multiplier between bridges help?
THANKS IN ADVANCE

i'd increase the voltage of the Northbridge by like... .1v
it should give you some wiggle room

you can also loosen your memory timings, or up the voltage on your memory (if it can handle it)

ok so just an update on my overclocking.
today me and my friend got the cpu to 3.744 very unstable though ( that was just for numbers ) but however we did get 3.585 to be stable (with air cooling only) next step will be with my liquid cooling as soon as i get the new pump and water lines.

alright so i just got done trying for 3.8 ghz on the cpu. all voltages that could be changed were maxed out. cpu vcore was at an incredible 1.65v north bridge was at 1.5 ect... i lowered the multiplier to 14x which seemed to make it the most stable but i cant lower the multiplier any more of the fsb wont be able to go high enough for it to be effective. does anyone else have any ideas.
