Hi guys, I am in need of a bit of help overclocking my system. I seem to have hit a wall!

First thing's first, i use a Gigabyte GA-MA780G-UD3H AMD 780G (Socket AM3/AM2+) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard with 4gig of Kingston 1066 ram.

Currently the ram is running at about 900 in the bios.

Here is an image from CPUZ showing my current overclock.


And here's an image of my temps with an hour of stress.


As you can see i have altered my core voltage and my FSB speed. I have not touched anything else except reducing the memory multiplier so the memory runs less than 1066.

I have tried to raise the FSB higher as my temps are good, but cant POST successfully with anything higher. Firstly is there a way to raise the mutliplier higher than 13x? its the max in the bios...

Am i missing something, im new to this so im thinking its probably something simple

The obvious thing to do would be increase the vcore, your temps are excellent no worries there. Try 1.40 on the vcore and try 254 fsb.

254 x 13 = 3.3ghz.

Then stress test until you're happy it's stable then try 3.4ghz (261 x 13)

Just make sure while increasing the fsb that your ram isn't overclocked.

thanks for the reply mate - ive tried increasing the vcore before to get more out of the FSB but it never seemed to post, perhaps i wasnt increasing it enough!
