Ok so i just tried to re OC what i had before and i couldnt even boot up, so now im back at default settings. I followed that link guide i posted to the tee so if it didnt have me change the vcore then i didnt. Something is definetly wrong, oh and when i went into the bios it even said there i was at like 20 deg C. weird!

Generally the highest temperature posted is your CPU temperature.

You should up your Vcore by a few steps at a time to see if it's stable enough. Keep running Prime95/SP2004/Orthos 'till it's stable for (at least, more recommended) 12 hours.

So windows probably wasnt loading cause it didnt have enough voltage?

Likely.

also, you want to take overclocking slowly. Don't jump right away to 3.0GHz. Take smaller steps, and make sure you're stable at those inbetween steps.

With your CPU, for example, I would try 2.5GHz, and then in increments of 100MHz. Each step should be tested for stability (for like half an hour or so). If it fails, check if your RAM is not pushed too hard, and if not, then add a little bit vcore until it's stable.

Hey Chozart here the CPU-Z screenshot you wanted



does everything look fine in the screenshot?

Any reason why my cpu temp didnt increase when i overclocked it?

Looking good, except one item:

Why is your RAM running single channel? You should move one RAM stick over one slot. In most boards, if you have two sticks of RAM, they are in alternate slot. If you look at your board, you'll see that the RAM slots have two different colors. Put the two sticks in two slots with the same color. Thus, likely you will have full-empty-full-empty RAM slots. This does not affect your overclocking, but dual challen will increase performance.

Otherwise, it all looks pretty good to me. You have your RAM 1:1, running at 376MHz (Stock is 400MHz), the voltage looks decent. Is this currently a stable setting? I think it should be...

If this is stable, and you're happy with 3.0GHz, you should try to run your RAM on a 4:5 divider. However, this will probably need some extra voltage for the RAM.

First, make sure this is stable, preferably by running Prime95 (twice, one on each core) or another stress tool overnight.

Well i lowered my clock speed even more(about 2.5ghz), and even then my system froze playing CS: Source, so i have no idea. I guess ill just slowly work my way up. Can i always leave my vcore at like 1.4 or should i move that in increments with the rest of things?

Oh... one thing...

When you overclock, did you LOCK the PCI-E bus? The freezing aspect gives me the feeling it's actually graphics messing up (failed overclock generally would result in reboot... ).

In the BIOS, make sure you set the PCI-E bus at a fixed 100MHz.

yea i have the PCI-E set at 100mhz, im really confused. After i changed it back to default settings in he bios, it even froze after that once. I shut my comp of for the night, i hope that will fix things today.
