Thanks for the help, this build was just a trial for me to practice OC, purchased the MoBo second hand. Aww well, OCing is not for me then :)
Well, don't completely give up on OCing. There is a big difference in available OC headroom between 1st gen "i" series Intels and newer Intel/AMD CPUs.
Hopefully :)) I've seen other people's post that they can reach 3.9 stable. It goes to show I did not win the silicon lottery haha
Lol, guess you didn't. :)
