    Again, i am unsuccessful. Is there any information i can give you that you think would be important?

    In the meantime i'll try and post any possibly useful info

    Unless cpu-z is way off, i think my bios isn't saving my v-core settings correctly. I have it running at 2.40 ghz right now and i set the v-core to 1.29 or 1.30 myself (i don't remember exactly) but cpu-z is reporting 1.24.

    My Memory settings i changed are as follows:

    Channel A
    Channel A Timings
    tRD - 9
    Channel B
    Channel B Timings
    tRD - 9

    All other settings are set to Auto

    tRRD - (4) [Auto]
    tWTR - (4) [Auto]
    tWR - (6) [Auto]
    tRFC - (72) [Auto]
    tRTP - (4) [Auto]
    CMD - (0) [Auto]


    My CPU PLL and CPU Reference were set at Normal, CPU VTT at 1.3, MCH at 1.3, and i tried putting the CPU VCore at 1.35 like you said, but alas i am still at square one.

    Again, thanks for any help,
    Mason

    I've tried, unsuccessfully, to set all of my ram settings lower than normal just to see if i can boot. I really have no clue as to what i'm doing wrong. I've done everything you've said to do. Maybe my computer just refuses to OC?

    Any help would be appreciated,
    Mason

    I dont know the board or the bios settings but if you want 333x9 and u have 1066 mem,that should mean u want a 3.20 multiplier for the memory.
    Try putting everyting on auto except the cpu/fsb frequency of 333,memory xmp profile enabled,if there is more than one profile,use the 1066/533 speed one.Memory multiplier 3.20.
    Everything else on auto.
    Fire it up n see what happens.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    I got around to trying out what you said, kick, and it didn't work.

    Thanks for the advice though,

    CPU-Z is reporting the correct Vcore. Don't be afraid to turn it up. Try to get 1.30-1.35 reported by CPU-Z, and then see what happens.

    How am i supposed to OC until i reach 1.35 volts in CPU-Z if i can't even boot into Windows to check CPU-Z on the voltage? >_<

    Well, you said you are running stock clocks but you manually set the voltage to 1.30 in the BIOS and CPU-Z is reporting 1.24. Up it till it reads 1.35 in CPU-Z, and then see if the chip will overclock.

    D'oh >_< I thought that that was what you meant. Okay, i'm going to go try it out right now. Btw, will over-voltaging on stock clocks mess my computer up? i know it's just temporary so i can OC afterwards, but i don't want to damage my computer too much.

    Again, thanks for all of your help,

    No. At least not at this voltage.

    I just got done with trying to set my voltages higher than normal just to get to 1.35v. The problem is... no matter what i set my VCore at in the BIOS, it is not reflected whatsoever in cpu-z. As a matter of a fact, no matter what i set the VCore to it doesn't even change cpu-z's voltage reading at ALL. I tried everything from 1.28v to 1.40v and cpu-z read 1.248/1.232 at all times.

    Is there something i'm doing wrong?? Does my motherboard hate me? :P

    Thanks for the help thus far,
    Mason
