ASUS M5A97 R2.0 FSB max @ 300 Mhz?
I have managed to overclock the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 to a bus speed (FSB) of 300 MHz
using the phenom x6 1045T.
But the second I try and set the bus speed (FSB) a bit higher like 305 MHz,
windows keeps crashing!
Would this be a limitation of the board since it's a 4+2 power phase design?
Or are there other options I can try to stabilize the higher bus speeds
1- would increasing the mobo related voltages in bios help? i tried a bit of that didn't seem to
2- Remove the stock thermal pads of the default mobo heatsinks and replace them with AS5?
3- Add more heatsinks on the mobo to strategic components?
Any ideas will be appreciated.
