Can you access the bios if so what can you change? First unlink the ram to see how far your cpu can go and run the ram at stock speeds. Then start by bumping clock speed and voltage in small increments, watching your heat. I found it best to go in 5-10 MHZ at a time and when you cant post, up the voltage 1 notch. Always keep an eye on temps though.

Each time I change the cpu speed even if it is only by 5, I save it the pc reboots then stops reboots again and it sets the bios back to default.

Hmm are you sure your temps are down? and is ram unlinked? if so try it linked and synced

Ok looking at that you will have to pick in the system voltage control put on manual or something like that, and then see if you can up the clock first put the multi on 9 and bump the vcore up 1 notch be mindfull of temps.
Put the vcore of cpu at like 1.30 if you can

Enable host clock freq. then see if you can change the cpu host freq if its reseting when you do that it needs a little extra voltage to cpu

you may have a slightly diff model, but bios should be he same...

things to disable

c1e
speedstep
eist
virt tech
disable bit
speedfan(smartfan)
no exec mem
limit cpu value

set vcore to 1.30 just to get started, once at desired OC begin to lower it til it becomes unstable, then put it at last stable setting.....
