If yours is actually saying OC failed, load setup defaults or continue whatever, then that's different
Yeh thats what happens with me. "overclock failed"
However, ive had a breakthrough! Take a look at this:
So judging by the SPD timings my memory may be the problem. Tested it by loosening memory timings to 6/5/5/14 and ive now moved through the 3.0ghz threshold! At least I know now that theres no major fault. Cant believe that I overlooked these memory timings.
However, I should obviously be able to tighten these timings especially if Im planning on overclocking.
Can I get some opinions on these timings please? Have aI got rubbish ram that cant be tightened? Or maybe just needs a voltage tweak? Im unsure how these timings relate to how good/bad the memory will be when overclocking.
