overclocking problems

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So I was overclocking my E6600 last night and it was booting on 3.1 ghz fine. I tried to put it higher and it would boot and all, but it would freeze up. So I lowered the overclock and now it will boot past bios, but when it's suppose to be at the windows load up, I just get a black screen. What do I do?

1.37 I believe. Like I said, it was booting fine and now when I try lowering the overclock, it won't even boot up.

Reset CMOS - This will clear your BIOS and put it back into factory default.
1. Locate a circular silver battery on your motherboard.
2. Remove that battery
3. Let it sit there without the battery for minute or longer
4. Put back in the battery and boot back up.

See if this helps.

Alright, thank you. I'll give this a try and then hop in the shower. I'll let you know if this helps. If it does, I think I'll just leave her at 3.1 ghz.

You probably set your RAM for something they could not handle. That will usually lock up the POST and not allow you in windows...A low vcore will usually start to load windows and then restart.

Try bumping your RAM voltage up by.5v and your cpu vcore up by.02v...then restart to see if it holds.

I forgot to say. Turn off your PC and unplug the power supply wire before resetting CMOS.

EDIT: Like CL3P20 have said, you overclocked your FSB higher and that will make your RAM run at faster speed. Usually past it's stock speed, you'll have to give it more voltage to stabilize itself. Are you dividing your RAM?

The ram was running on auto. And When I was looking at CPU-Z earlier while it was at 3.1 ghz, the ram was at 2.1. I'll try the ram first cause the CMOS happens to be blow my gpu and theres a crap load of my wires above it. (kind of hard to get to)

Most mobo's, will reset CMOS if you turn it off and unplug the PSU...you might get lucky and not need to use the actual jumper.

If you have CpuZ, can you read or post the RAM information under the MEM tab...that will tell us how you RAM is currently set for timings.
*BTW your RAM is very good and up to the task of getting that cpu to 3.6ghz no problem.

Well, I tried this. In bios theres something to load fail safe defaults. I tried that and the computer still won't boot. Is it possible I damaged something while overclocking?
