    Unless your computer becomes unstable you can keep on going but see that the temperatures are low & voltages are not very high or until you hit a fsb wall would be fine.

    At 1500mhz fsb it seems to be stable but above that it either restarts continously & windows cant be loaded properly & am only able to play low end games.

    I think the motherboard is not able to handle it properly? Do you know about the maximum FSB report on this motherboard?

    The maximum rated fsb is 1800mhz i think & it supports 1500 mhz cpus like the qx9770 & it also supports the ddr3 2ghz ram that i have with overclocking.
