    I'm trying to overclock my e6750 and it runs perfectly stable at 2.80 ghz but as soon as i set it to 2.88 ghz, it loads really slow and I get random BSODS and shutdowns. I've heard of people overclocking the e6750 way higher than that, like 3.6 ghz and higher. My motherboard is the gigabyte p35-ds3l.

    Be careful, and don't fry your hardware out. You have to have sufficient cooling in order to overclock properly. People may have pushed the machine to those readings but because they have the proper air flow and ventalation (I doubt they have liquid cooling installed in a machine like that). Try upgrading to the latest BIOS as well.

    That's a pretty big overclock. It was likely achieved by not only increasing the FSB, but also the core voltage. This is where things get dangerous. If you push the voltage too high, you can kiss your processor goodbye.

    Also, as the other poster mentioned, you really need good cooling in your machine to overclock beyond what you've already done.

    Do alot of research if overclocking is something that you really want to get in to. It isn't always easy to do, and you need to be really careful when doing it. You'll need to invest in some high-end cooling products, too.

    I have the voltages set to auto. I also have a zalman 9500 and and an antec 900 case with really good airflow and my temps stay around 23 degrees C so heat is not the problem.

    Unless you live in an igloo, I highly doubt that.

    Are you overclocking through BIOS settings?

    I love speedfan reports temp 3 as -2c :) ...I don't think so...Just curious if you have compared temps using easytune5pro(gigabytes software)
