Can't OC this setup? help please

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
OK i had my is7 and p4 a week... or so.

Today i tried to jump in and OC to 3.0.
it won't post (long beeps). so i tried to up the
vcore to like 1.67 or something (long beeps).
then i tried to do 2.8ghz (long beeps) so i put it
back to 2.4ghz and loaded windows when it loaded
and came to this site to read some stuff the computer
hang for a sec or so when i moved my mouse. I hit
Ctrl+Alt+Del and saw that my CPU would spike half
way when it hung?

Any ideas why it did this? right now theres no problem.

Also why cant i OC this setup? i know nothing about
memory ?timing? but i don't think its this?? what do yall think

Two words: baby steps. Only bump your clock speed 3-5 MHz at a time if you want to achieve a stable OC. That will allow you to make all of the necessary tweaks to your system and test for stability along the way.

Try resetting your CMOS to get things to run properly at stock speeds. Also, read the Intel Overclocking guide. It's a wonderful resource.
