This is my fist time overclocking, it hasn't been the best experience as not one of my overclocks have successfully made it into windows. Everytime I change the FSB speed and save it to the cmos the mb resets itself after its just about to do the memory check at boot up. After that it goes back to the original 333x8 and boots up normally.

Specs:
Intel E6750 2.66GHz
Gigabyte GA-G33m-DS2R
G Skill 2GB DDR2-800 x2 (4GB)
Enermax Infiniti 720w
Zalman CNPS8000 cooler (Low profile case)
Windows 7 64 bit

I have a feeling its something to do with the memory. I've tried 2.8GHz, 3.0GHz, 3.2GHz and nothing above that at this point. With my 3 year old E6750 I'm not too worried about it but I've never made the effort to overclock it until now. It should definitely be able to run at least around 3.0GHz right? Even though 2.8Ghz didnt work, I increased the voltage a little bit at around 3.0GHz. Still reboots. There's no point in me trying anything like that at this point. I don't think its the voltage. Do I need to match the memory speed to the FSB or something like that? I'm pretty sure I tried that (so the memory speed multiplier makes it 800 again after I change the CPU FSB). I also have the option to change the timings but thats a bit further than my knowledge.

I also tried it with the memory speed lower (so below 800). Do I need to make it 400?

I had the latest bios installed, then I went back 2. Still the exact same results. No matter what I do it always reboots at the memory test. Nothing else. It never makes it into windows (until it resets itself back to 333x8).

EIST disabled, TM disabled, CPU halt disabled.

Anyone familiar with the mb? Any settings in there that unlocks something I need? The box even says "overclockers choice"

Anything I'm missing? Do I need to manually set the PCI-e speed or something like that?

Any help would be great. I've searched the internet for the entire day and tried everything I can think of. I'm really at a dead end.
