Smile ASUS M5A97 R2.0 FSB max @ 300 Mhz?

Hello,

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

examples:

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.

thanks

300Mhz is at the upper end of AMD FSB speeds. You're lucky to be able to hit that high of an FSB, to be honest. Be happy with what you get.
