Hoping someone can reply here as I am new to overclocking, but have researched it pretty hard.
The situation is that I have a fx 6300 and a ga 78lmt-usb3 -- I actually have 3 sets of these. I also have bought 3 hyper 212 150mm cpu fans:
I've tried over and over again to overclock them but have failed. I have turned off core boost and raise the cpu multiplier from default 17.5x to 18x just for 3600 mhz (which is very low).
The computer then boots and were all good.
However, when I shutdown the computer and then reboot it, I get the famous "THE SYSTEM HAS EXPERIENCED BOOT FAIL DUE TO OVER CLOCKING" and everything is set back to default. It just seems that it will not let me overclock a single bit!
I've raised the vcore all the way up to 1.42 and I still get this message. Even for 3600mhz.
Everything at default settings runs fine. I also run linux on these systems (long story), so I don't know if that affects things.
Any help would be super appreciated.
