My build Most up to date:
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46.
CPU: AMD FX-8210
Memory: Corsair XMS3 16gb 4x4gb DDR3-1333
SSD: Corsair Neutron GTX 240gb. w/ OS
OS: Windows 7 home premium
Graphics: Currently HIS Radeon HD7750 1gb. Usually a ASUS HD7770......had to RMA to asus.
PSU: Thermaltake 750W
HDD: WD GREEN 1TB
ODD: LG DVD
CPU Cooler: Corsair H60

I tried a simple OC which was listed on here. Voltages and all, and my system wouldnt post. I cleared CMOS and reinstalled OS. Dont want to go through that process again. Any help is welcome thanks. According to ASUS my 7770 should be back within a week. I'd prefer to use that card.

One more thing. Since the CMOS clear and the graphics change posting after power on takes forever. I havent seen such a long post since i build the comp. After the post thanks to the SSD boot time is slow. any suggestions as to why my post takes forever?

you need to learn how to overclock, not just take someone elses overclock and apply it to your bios.

you need to find out what your memory can handle, what Mhz, timings, and Voltage, then what the processor can handle etc.

You need a new mobo, I wouldn't go past the turbo setting of your current one. Most MSI boards are not good for an OC. My 980-g46 blew at 4.1, and I don't think there is much hope for this one, the same as yours for me safely getting past 3.8.
