Newbie overclock help from the pros

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Guys:

Could use a little help with setting up an overclock on my new pc, little info at first I had an overclock of about 3.8 ghz on my 6 core seemed to be working ok but latley when I boot computer it starts then shuts down in about 3seconds and restarts by itself usually 1 or 2 times then it loads windows without the overclock, the only thing I changed was the blck freq left all ram timings on auto but I am thinking they need to be adjusted to work with the cpu speed but not sure using latest bios on pc specs below, any help would be great guys, thank you. Oh checked all the ram 1 by 1 and all is fine, also when I remove clock it starts fine, I bought this board to overclock so not sure whats going on ? one other thing this things runs really cool never goes above 40 degrees fsx running all out, at desktop avg is 34 degrees

here is specs on ram:Speed DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Cas Latency 8
Timing 8-8-8-24
Voltage 1.65V



Regards, Rich

Does it only restart at bootup or does it do it in windows also? It may be restarting because your overclock is not stable enough to boot so it restarts several times and when it can't boot it sets it to the default clock in order to start. Are you running your ram at the rated 1.65v? You can also try to bump up your cpu voltage.

Hi:
Thanks for the help its only at startup and now noticing when it’s cold it is consistently shutting down twice then goes into windows fine without overclock, and no problems to be honest I am at work now and can’t try your 1.65v setting but I can tell you I have not tried that yet so hopefully that will work, I will get back to you tonight when I give it a go, thanks so much.

Regards, Rich
