Hi,

I recently built a system in hopes of overclocking it. The specs are very pretty basic.
  • Athlon X2 260 3.2ghz
  • Cooler Master 212 plus
  • Gigabyte ga-ma785gm-us2h (latest bios)
  • 350 watt PSU
  • ATI 4550
  • 3GB of DDR2 ram (667mhz)
As you can see, the cooler could hold alot of heat. I went to the bios and changed the FSB from 200 to 245 and it worked fine. (temps stayed around 30C with stress tests). At 248 I get a "page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" BSOD error. I googled and it seems that this is a common ram error after overclocking it. I lowered the multiplyer from 3.33 to 2.66 which got the ram close to stock speeds but the same problem occurs. The CPU voltage has been changed from 1.4 to 1.475 and even when I put it on Auto it adjusts it to that speed with the overclock.

Is there anything I can do about this?

Thanks

Just lowered the RAM multiplyer to the lowest (2X) and I'm at 4.2ghz @ 36C. Let's see how high this goes :)
