So I figured out the problem as to why my computer/bios wouldnt let me overclock. Since I have the nforce 780i sli: 1) Like a dick, I forgot I had a profile setup to execute on Start of windows(you know that Nvidia Control Panel) And 2) Since My bios was allowing me to change CPU And Memory OC But FSB Would not save... I Changed The FSB in The Nvidia Control Panel And When I Rebooted It Took. So All Is Well. I tried It out at 3.6ghz 1066mhz sli memory and 400/1600 fsb And it worked fine. Gonna oc a little more but im ordering a different cpu cooler and case first. Just wanted to let you know that was the problem, stored settings profile in the nvidia control panel. Thanks again for all your responses. Ill post later when my parts arrive.
