nice oc. The exact round error was probably within the RAM. I'll give you a hint, leave only the 512MB stick in. It should give you a better oc as with multiple sticks, you have a higher chance that one will hold you back. Nice job though.

the only way to get unlocked multipliers now is ES (engineering sample) or EE (Extreme Edition)

Thanks everyone for the comments. It's just too bad it isn't stable. I might work on that some time, but I'm content with 2.9GHz. I don't think there would be much of a gaming difference between 2.9 and 3. I may try that 1 512MB stick of RAM thing though, ownage. I didn't think of that.

EDIT: Oh, and I forgot to say, it was very unstable. May have been the RAM, but when I opened CSS, within a quarter second, it crashed.

And good luck with your OC, joxley.
