Its weird I've had the following happen about 3x now in the last month. Basically the mouse pointer and everything on the computer just freezes. Ctrl + alt + delete does nothing. I have to hard reboot. I don't know what is causing this. I recently changed my turbo from -.020 to -.010. I don't know if thats causing it.

I need some help with overclocking my CPU, i recently replaced my MSI which the chipset did not let me overclock to an ASRock Z77 Extreme 4.
I followed the guide on the front page and just took over everything but after using those settings my PC started to act weird and it does not even overclock and stays at 3,50GHz. I would need some help with it and know whats the causing the problem.

First of all, you can find my rig information below;

Memory type: 2x 4GB Corsair XMS3 - CMX8GX3M2A1333C9

And below the screenshots of the BIOS settings;







After using the BIOS settings above my PC restarts 2-3 times itself. After that it just starts up and its telling me that it could not boot from the SSD while my SSD with Windows 7 64-bit is on the top of the boot piority list. This only happends if i use the BIOS settings above. Also when i boot-up to Windows its still on 3.50GHz. I had to restore the default BIOS settings after it started to cause problems for me. Any idea how i can just overclock my CPU without having any problems?

1.Use CPU-Z to ensure that you do, in fact, have a "K" series CPU.
2.Dont use auto turbo voltage, set it to a positive number.
3.In windows, under power setting--->edit plan settings --->change advanced power settings--->processor power management, ensure that maximum processor state is 100%.

First of all, thanks for your quick reply.

1. I can confirm that its an K series CPU
2. I will change that and give it another try.
3. It was already on 100%

I will now make the changes again and update this post.

I changed the auto turbo voltage to 0.004 but that did not do the trick.
No, i did not reinstall windows as i did not have much time to do it. I just wanted to try to overclock my CPU first for the first time.
As it did not work now i will reinstall my windows next week and try it once again.

Just a shot in the dark, but try try turning secure boot off in bios.

Secure boot was already disabled.
A newbie question; How do i check if UEFI is enabled?
I just found this picture:

If you want to check, you can type "msinfo32" into the run bar, BIOS mode will either be legacy or UEFI.
