To me it sound like you are tring all at once and that way there is no way to know what is causing the problem cpu or memory.
Vcore is the voltage to your cpu. I have the same board so i am familiar with the bios. If you have more questions ill sure help you out. read some of the noob guides to ocing
For me when i started i had a goal of 3ghz from 2 ghz stock. so i personally didnt bumb the fsb by 5 at a time i went straight for 300, so i set my fsb to 300 turned of eist c1e speedstep, left my ram at 1:1(set at 2.00) and wow it booted. tryied orthos and it crashede in 3 seconds, up the vcore,crash up the vcore ,crash, up the vcore oh Stable
then i started working on the memory , i guess i left it on auto to see how it would work then i noted the timings and speed in cpu z and went from there.
you gotta start somewhere and it is alot easier to do 1 thing ata atime them 3 or 4 cause you'll never know what fixed it or sent it over the edge.
Here i am 3.0Ghz ram @1Ghz 5-5-5-15 timings
it is normal when you put in bad bios settings the computer will turn off when you save the bios then turn on again , then turn off again and stay off=bad bios setting
Im not gonna say you cant break anything , I guess if you really dumb maybe like r8un a super high vcore to your chip or something. I wouldnt worry about breaking anything
Thanks. Acutally I did read the oc guides but I couldnt be bothere going 5 mhz everytime to get over 3hz. your way is more like it and I'm gonna spam you with questions after I'll do more researching! (jk).
I'm not sure I even wanna touch the voltage settings since I dont think i know enough to play with this kind of stuff.
