    overclocking problems

    hi guys, my dream system i was supposed to get yesterday went to pot as scan had sweet FA in stock.. and i mean it.. hardly anything worth buying, so im having to wait till after christmas and im going to shop around wrather than using scan.

    i couldnt walk away empty handed though so i got an abit GD8 for my p4 775 - 3.4ghz, to replace my gigabyte.

    so here is what is running..

    p4 550 (3.4ghz)
    512mb corsair TwinX 4000 (500mhz)
    pci-e xfx 6600gt

    and that ****ty new abit mobo.

    when i originally got built this with the gigabyte motherboard (earlier this year) i had absolutly no problems hitting 4ghz on a decent hsf, but now, running a dual radiator watercooler system, i struggle to get above 3.65ghz

    i havnt overclocked for a while, so im expecting im totally missing somthing, oblivious to an obvious fact!

    the downside is that **** **** motherboard here doesnt up' the voltage by .25 value's at a time, but by 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% selections.. (5% more than stock vcore)

    the fsb, n/b and ddr however u can do at .5 value's

    has anyone got an idea what the problem could be??
    *edit* and before anyone says 'yeah ur using an intel' believe me.. i know
    cheers guys

    Erm, can I ask why you bought something that you didn't really want?

    Also, did you check Scan's website before going, as this would have informed you of the (out of) stock situations.
