    Not having yor system specs in your signature does not help.
    It is very rare to have a faulty CPU but it happened in the past. Can you have it replaced?
    Your old E6400 should be fairly easy to overclock to 2.66GHz (old ram limit). Another option you may consider.

    Yeah on monday i get a new CPU by taking this one back to the shop so thats my last resort really. I don't have money left to change anything else inside :(

    Good luck with the replacement.

    I really hope that's the root of all my current problems, but i know there is only a slight chance that a brand new CPU has a malfunction :(

    In case it does not, I would recommend overclocking the E6400.
    With the old ram you can get it to 2.66GHz and with the new ram to 3-3.2GHz. Decent CPU cooler will be much cheaper than the Q9300.

    I have a Freezer 7 Pro, but in case i'd need another one, which do you suggesti should buy?

    [so here goes my full system spec, nothing else is in there atm]

    Dreezer 7 pro should be fine for 3-3.2GHz overclock, 2.66GHz not a problem at all, providing the problem of higher FSB is not of the motherboard.
    What is your E6400 default vcore?

    Exclamation Re: GA-P43-ES3G + Q9300 randomly timed bluescreen...

    Well i'm afraid i don't know. Never had to touch anything in MIT menu before, so I didn't bother. I was never planning to overclock, i just wanted a stable and somewhat silent system that could play games sometimes... but it seems things never go as planned :)

    So what do you suggest: try E6400 overclocked to go at 333 FSB see if it's not the motherboard that cannot handle this bus speed?

    EDIT:
    i just installed E6400, the bios says it's default VCore is 1.325, but setting that to normal from auto -> CPUz says Core voltage: 1.264 V (while 100% Prime95).
    So now i'm gonna check it at FSB 300 and then 333. The Q9300 made me bluescreen at 300! I have the 800Mhz kingston ram installed at fsb 400.

    EDIT2:
    So i'm now runnig the system at CPU FSB 300 * 8 (2.4Ghz) ~ 1.26V (normal). It's +2 celsius from the default 266 * 8. RAMs are at FSB 400. You remember i said earlier that Q9300 did not effect the RAM? I mean when i set all to FSB 333 the new RAMs were still running at 400, no matter what i did in the bios. Now it's totally different with the old CPU, i can set them to anything i want!

    Anyways the system is stable at 300, the Q9300 would have gone down by now, so i move on to the important thing and try to stresstest the old CPU at FSB 333 * 8 with a slightly higher voltage.

    EDIT3:
    Now it's FSB 333 * 8 (2.66 Ghz) ~ 1.36 V (auto). The CPU is notably warmer -> 55 celsius (+12-14) from default. RAMs are again running at 400, and Prime95 is testing. I'm confident to say the system seems stable, usually at this FSB the Q9300 goes down by Prime95 in about 5-30 seconds. Now i just reached 10 minutes. It's funny to finally HEAR (after 2 years) Freezer 7 pro while working -> it runs at 2250 rpm (default: 1200-1650), but other than that i'm waiting for some tests to finish and after that i guess it's safe to say it's not the motherboard's fault. It can handle this FSB just fine, am i right on this?

    EDIT4:
    Two hours of testing and its still stable... i may jump to conclusions here :) anyways in a few hours i get a new Q9300 so all will be settled (at least i hope so).

    Leaving voltages on auto may dangerously over volt some of them.
    Can you post a screen capture of EasyTune -> Tuner -> Advanced -> Voltage tab with your current settings, as well as a template with you current settings.
    Use Core Temp or RealTemp to monitor the temperatures.

    I've found some websites about overclocking E6400 so when i saw the voltages on auto it was ok at the time, but now i set it to: 1.425 (+0.1 v).

    So here goes the ET6 screenshot:


    and also CoreTemp screenshot while stresstesting:


    BIOS settings are as followed:

    Code:
    Robust Graphic Booster: Auto
    CPU Clock Ratio: 8x
    Fine CPU Clock Ratio: +0
    --------- Clock Chip Control
    CPU Host Clock Control: Enabled
    CPU Host Frequency (Mhz): 333
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz): 100Mhz
    --------- DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance: Standard
    ( G ) MCH Frequency Latch: 333 Mhz
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD): 2.40B
    System Memory Frequency 800 / 800
    DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD): Auto
    --------- Motherboard Voltage Control
    CPU VCore (1.3250): 1.4250 V
    CPU Termination (1.200): Normal
    CPU Reference (0.805): Normal
    MCHCore (1.100): Normal
    DRAM Voltage (1.800): Normal
