    Whats letting me down?

    Right well my rig is below and this is my problem(s)
    The system will just hang now and again and shut down when doin pathetic tasks like browsing internet etc, and when overclocking even at slightly higher voltage (and stock) and lower RAM speeds I can only get my 100MHZ increase before computer has a heart attack and shuts down on me.

    Now I think it may be my power supply but I would have thought even though its not that good I should be able to get more out of it.

    Any help? I'd really like to get a bit more out of my system.

    Oh and yer temps are great.

    maybe it's your ballistix thye are not the greatest overclockers have you tried loosening there timings some ddr400 ram you have to loosen out once you get past 208-210 fsb also are you pumping enough volts through the ram

    My first port of call would honestly be the PSU - I don't trust PSUs from companies I have never heard of, (with certain exceptions - such as Seasonic, but only after much research).

    Can you check what voltages your components are actually getting? It will either be in the bios or a tool that came with your motherboard you need to run in windows

    Something like this should work with your motherboard

    as above i live with holden burn, and i have a 939 rig on an asus mobo and it ocs like made, but his isnt having any of it. but i cant belive a psu would stop u overclocking by 200 mhz, especially wen u dont touch the voltage.

    You need to reduce your htt multi as you overclock - set it to 4x instead of 5x its set to normally That will do you good until about 250fsb, when youll need to knock it down again.

    You bought a DFI board and want to run it at stock? heretic

    The hiper type R is good and rock solid.

    Most ballistix runs at 2.9v btw Mine wont go above 210 at stock volts and it's DDR500 stuff. Might be worth a try.
