This is my first tentative at OCing my E6420 L644G289...I know the batch has bad reputation.

Well, I tried the "magic thinking" 8X400FSB, RAM 1:1, stock voltage. No Love. No boot. That was expected.

Then a modest 8X333MHZ, RAM 1:1, stock volts,works good no problem.

In the posts above ,you OC gods are suggesting;

-Increase the processor's voltage a bit (small increments)
-Increase of FSB volts a bit (what do you recommend?)

I red posts about increasing the PCI-E bus speed by a small increment also (for some obscure reasons, to increase stablility...)

So now at stock speed (Orthos), Speed fan 4.29 gives me a Temp1 of 42 Deg.Cel
Temp2 of 27 Deg.Cel

At 2.6Ghz(Orthos) Temp1 of 46 Deg.Cel
Temp2 of 42 Deg.Cel

I know it's nothing to write home about, but I'm going slowly but surely.
