Haha, my little brother said that when he saw a car crash, rofl.

Alright, settings, first we try on the current voltage (be prepared for a few attempts at this, the settings will need tweaking)

change your BCLK to 179, multiplier to 21.

See if it boots, if not, repost and we shall tweak voltages (:

thats 3759, just over our target.

Now, its gonna be hot.

If it boots, soon as it does, realtemp, check the temp.

Post back, dont run prime95 yet, need to see the idle temps first

If it doesnt boot, dont worry aslong as no voltages go over 1.6, and your CPU voltage stays under 1.35, you wont kill anything, worst case, nothing loads, so we reset the cmos.

And try again.

Btw, Im not PRO, so dont take my word as god, ive just been intently overclocking in the last week, and reading pages after pages of data, and I've made over 15 threads here asking various questions, and found out so much data I can confidently over clock.

So saving you the time and effort of asking around and reading so much (:

And through trial and error I have yet to kill any of my parts xD

Hahaha well I'll take your word as someone who hasn't yet set their house on fire as of yet from a 100C CPU.

Those got me to 4.14ghz, So if they dont work, we need to tweak something else ( we are trouble shooting)

Can you post back the following numbers.

Whats your QPI ?
Whats your ram running at?

Disable turbo, we are only taking you to 3.75.

QPI is 6.40GT or something, in your bios on the page with BCLK.
