    Default PC is constantly BSOD after attempted OC'ing. PLEASE HELP!

    Here is my system specs:
    I have a C2D E7200, a Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G motherboard, and OCZ 4GB PC6400 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 RAM with a XFX Geforce 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition.
    Here is my websites for the motherboard and RAM:
    GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-P35-S3G
    OCZ Technology | Products | Memory | OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 SLI-Ready Edition 4GB Dual Channel

    I have tried to use EasyTune5 after the BIOS values refused to POST, now all that it will give me is the BSOD on the Windows loading screen, I have reset the CMOS and everything and reset the values in the BIOS and I do not know what to do.
    PLEASE HELP ME
    Thanks
    Also when it BSOD's the PC shuts itself off, it is not up long enough to see the error message.

    Remove all but one stick of ram and see if you can get in the BIOS then. Once you do, See my reply to you here about overclocking. >>>

    Easytune is not the way to go, you want to do it in the BIOS

    Yeah I did that initially but I couldn't get a post, so I just went into EasyTune and did small increments. I removed one RAM stick and still BSOD.
    I have no clue what do do?
    Is something fried?
    BTW it is BSOD'ing in both Vista 64 and Xp 64

    You can get in the BIOS right? If so, please load "Optimized Defaults" then save and apply, and reboot back into the BIOS and make the changes needed for your Disks/OS. Do not go right into windows after doing this as you may corrupt your disk if you are using a RAID array, make all disk related changes before going into windows.

    Be sure you do not have Static tRead set to 6 while you are in the BIOS as well

    I did that, still BSOD and shuts off before I can get an error code

    You may need to do a repair install to your windows then

    Yeah I went into partition magic and it said something about my HD having an error, so I had to go in and just did a fresh install of XP. Its working fine now. Thanks for all of the help.
    I'm going to go back to the drawing board tonight and work from within the BIOS.
    From my post here: http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/plea...locking-27332/ what do you recommend starting out as? I want to just keep increasing the FSB until I need to increase voltage. By how much do you think I should increase the FSB at every time and approximately how often should voltage be increased and by how much.
    I am just going to try to get my max OC little by little.

    Ahh, well a in place XP repair would have been easier. But at least you got it!

    The settings I listed there are for 3.8. Just set it with that, leaving all the ram settings at the higher numbers I listed until you find out your Stable CPU voltage.

    As it is it may or may not work, but with the highest numbers I listed there your ram will not be the cause of errors or a NON boot, It would be the CPU voltage.

    Just keep raising the CPU Voltage until your stable, Keeping a eye on temps

    I work backwards myself. What I do is test out a super high FSB with a low multi to find the max of the CPU and boards FSB and see what voltages that needs. Then I go back and raise the CPU Multi and start lowering the voltage back down until It fails. Like with my E3100 (Same as E8400) I started it out first boot with 500 FSB X 6 and found it would go still go higher FSB. But I just noted that voltage and went back and set Multi back to 9 and started in with 475 FSB and worked from there.

    It is all up to you how you want to do it, But just set the ram settings high so that if you get errors or things fail you know it is not the ram. Then once you have your CPU stable you can work on the ram.... Which takes a bit longer

    If you would just like to do FSB jumps then I would jump by 10-15 or so at a time, starting after 375. And you could also make it easier and just use the 9 multi and no .5 fine clock

    I have tried and tried and I cannot get anything to even post. I have just got done trying to OC a 333MHz FSB with a memory multiplier of 2.4 to keep my RAM at 800MHz, then the only other thing other than the voltage I changed was the PCI-E clock, which I kept at 100 everytime.
    I tried all voltages from 1.2 with 0.25V everytime up until 1.3625V (which is what intel has on their site of this page for the VID Voltage Range) and not once did I even get my PC to post. I was wandering if I was doing anything wrong or what step should I take next?
    Thanks

    Do you have EIST and C1E disabled? You must!!

    Also did you change Performance Enhance to Standard? Default is Turbo, and is not going to help with overclocking any for sure. Must be on Standard.

    For now If I was you I would set ram to 555-15 until you get a bit more CPU stable, then mess with the ram. Still though be sure to Manually set the ram voltage and add +2-3 MCH Core. And Refresh to Act Delay set to 62 for now as well
