You won't have much luck overclocking unless you use the correct divider for your memory along with some precise voltage adjustments. I noticed you are using a 6GB memory configuration. The only way to achieve this with your board is to mix different Ram sets together which is always a bad idea.

Suggest you go to a 4GB configuration for overclocking and if you plan on overclocking the FSB be sure and use a stable divider. I have a chart that will work for the 680i in case you aren't sure which dividers are stable.

I just had the same problem and figured out it was a glitch with the "Cool and Quiet" option in the bios.
Make sure "cool and quiet" is disabled . seems windows 7 throttles the processor even if you haven't installed the application.
Hope that helps.

Hi there
another tack
If you are a gamer why not go for a better GPU. Windows 7 should remove most of the intensive graphic stuff to the GPU vastly lowering the load on the CPU so you shouldn't need to OC it anyway.


As computers are evolving in this direction - expect the next generation of SSD'S to handle most of the entire I/O processing so the CPU itself will only have to handle various interrupts,"dispatch tasks", and manage memory (virtual and real) OC'ing will be a thing of the past with no real use any more.

In other words the CPU will just handle the task element ( a small central kernel) whilst all the other processes (I/O, network communications, video, audio etc.) will be offloaded to the various components with their OWN in built processors.


This means future CPU's could actually become much LESS powerful than today's quads and still produce much greater throughput on the system.

Cheers
