    A good starting point is here....

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/memo...vs-bios-27283/

    A good 8 pages of reading and you will come across a lot of info and likely someone that has a rig close to your specs that has finally settled on a good OC.

    Peruse the forum a bit and read up on other peoples posts for a good starting point. Use the "search" function as well. We are trying to minimize the same question being asked in 100 different posts.

    Also look at peoples sigs... a lot of info right there ;)

    Na, you should only use that for Looking at your temps or voltages. All overclocking should be done in the BIOS.

    Please give me a link to your ram, and I will give you some settings to try for 3.6

    While you wait, this for sure should be set/changed for stock even. I will edit this or repost with full settings once I get your ram link

    Hi lsd nice to hear from you :) Sorry i got back late i was trying some settings in bios but i couldnt boot for a while due to my lack of knowledge in OC :(

    Ok i got a link

Keep in mind what you set here is not what you get in windows (You can check the difference with CPU-z, but it is also not always the same and may vary at different volt ranges)......  I see some do 3.6+ on 1.24 or Less Actual, some need 1.25-1.3 or more.  So set high enough for sure to boot then you can lower later

    Yes, you can if you set things right. Set to all the highest I suggested and pick a high Vcore and see if it works, if not try more

    Could this be a Vcore problem? i booted into wondows just fine with 1.23 volts at 3.6ghz. maybe it needs more juice to run prime95. It also doesnt seem to be a memory issue do to memtest not giving me any errors at this time with 105% coverage in about 20minutes. I seriously have no idea.. ^__^
