    I'm a noob in overclocking and a real beginner. I have build my first rig with the following components:
    P35c-Ds3r rev 1.1
    Q6600
    OCZ2N1066SR2GK
    Zalman 9700
    Zalman HP600
    MSI 8800GTS 512mb
    Antec Nine hundred
    Bios F4

    My bios is set up like this:
    Advanced BIOS
    Hard disk boor priority= Press enter
    first boot device = floppy
    Second boot device = cd rom
    third boot device = hard disk
    password check = setup
    hdd s.m.a.r.t. capability = enabled
    limit cpuid max. to 3 = disabled
    No-Execute Memory Protect = Enabled
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) = Enabled
    CPU Theremal Monitor 2(TM2) = Enabled
    CPU EIST Function = Disabled
    Virtualization Technology = Enabled
    full screen logo show = disabled
    init display first = PEG
    Power Management Setup
    HPET Support = Enabled
    HPET Mode = 32-bit mode

    PC Health Status
    Smart FAN Control Method = auto
    Smart FAN Control Mode = Auto

    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    robuust graphics booster = auto
    CPU Clock Ration = 9 X
    CPU Host Clock Control = Disabled
    CPU Host Freq = 266
    PCI Express frequency = auto
    C.I.A.2 = Disabled
    Performance Enhance = Standard
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) = auto
    [Memory Frequency(Mhz) 1066 1066
    High Speed DRAM DLL Settings = Option 1
    DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) = Manual
    CAS Latency Time = 5
    DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay = 5
    DRAM RAS# Precharge = 5
    Precharge delay(tRAS) = 15
    Act to Act delay = auto
    Rank write to read delay = auto
    write to read delay = auto
    refresh to act delay = 0
    refresh tp precharge delay = auto
    tRD = auto
    tRD phase adjustment = auto
    *******system voltage optimized********
    System Voltage Control = Manual
    DDR2/DDR3 OverVoltage Control = +0.4V
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control = normal
    FSB OverVoltage Control = normal
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control = normal
    CPU Voltage Control = normal
    Normal CPU Vcore = 1.287500V

    When i try overclocking my bios starts up then shutsdown and resets to the above settings. For overclocking I only change the folowing settings , lets say I OC from 266 to 270:

    CPU Host Clock Control = Enabled
    CPU Host Freq = 270
    PCI Express frequency = 100
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) = 2.0
    [Memory Frequency(Mhz) 1066 540

    The problem is that if I save my settings my bios starts up. than stops after the cpu ( 9*270 = 2430) line with just showing the memory test line. I don't have a clue what i'm doing wrong.

    Up the CPU voltage, but howmuch?
    Advanced bios settings-> disable C1E and TM2?
    Change the memory timmings to auto?

    please help.... because i know my set can do it.....

    Janus,

    What do you think is the problem then and what is in the other bios versions that can help overcome this problem?

    I know F4 is used very often because of the stability and other versions 'seem to lack of it.

    Try these settings. These were mine on a V1.0 board with F2 bios running stable at 3.0g and 1066 mhz for the memory. I'm now running stable at 3.2, but try these first. I never did have a stable system with F4, so I reverted back to F2 that came installed on the board new. I suggest you stay with 266/333/400 FSB settings and not set ODD frequencies like 270 or 315 or 405, etc.

    Use CTRL-F1 and go to the M.I.T. section. Listed in order on the bios page:

    ROBUST GRAPHICS BOOSTER Auto
    CPU CLOCK RATIO 9X
    CPU HOST CLOCK CONTROL ENABLE
    CPU HOST FREQUENCY (MHZ) 333
    PCI EXPRESS FREQUENCY AUTO
    C.I.A. 2 DISABLE
    SYSTEM MEMORY MULTIPLIER 3.2
    MEMORY FREQUENCY 1066
    HIGH SPEED DRAM DLL SET OPTION 2
    PERFORMANCE ENHANCE EXTREME
    DRAM TIMING SELECT MANUAL
    CAS LATENCY TIM 5
    DRAM RAS# TO CAS# DELAY 5
    DRAM RAS# PRECHARGE 4
    PRECHARG DELAY (tRAS) 15
    ACT TO ACT DELAY (tRRD) 3
    RANK WRITE TO READ DELAY 3
    WRITE TO PRECHARGE DELAY 6
    REFRESH TO ACT DELAY 42
    READ TO PRECHARGE DELAY AUTO
    tRD AUTO
    tRD PHASE ADJUSTMENT AUTO
    SYSTEM VOLTAGE CONTROL MANUAL
    DDR2/DDR3 OVERVOLT CONT +0.3V
    PCI-E OVERVOLT CONTROL NORMAL
    FSB OVERVOLT CONTROL NORMAL
    (G)MCH OVERVOLT CONTROL NORMAL
    CPU VOLTAGE CONTROL 1.28125V
    NORMAL CPU VCORE 1.32500V

    Well guys, i figured it out. I'm using 2 western digital mybook external harddisks. In the bios there is a setting "legacy USB Boot Device" which was enabled.

    By disabling this it posted through the boot and is overclocking like sunshine....
