Hi guys.

I updated my cpu from an old 4850e to phenom x2 550. It runs smooth as silk. i oc a bit by increasing the fsb to 220 (3.4g) but everytime i try to mess with the multiplier the system fails to boot. Any ideas?

My specks:

AMD Phenom II X2 550
ASROCK N61P-S
Nvidia 9600gt
Kingston 2x2Gb ddr2800
Samsung eco 500G
RAIDMAX 500W
Eizo 19"

i am getting the feeling that this is all you can get from an am2 mobo.
anyway i will be upgrading to an am3 mobo soon . 785 and 795 chipsets are quite cheep now and will get cheaper as time goes by.
