    Did you first load OPTIMIZED settings before trying to overclock?
    Follow the recommendations in this post and then enter your settings.
    Please follow the instructions for adding your hardware list to your forum signature and include a link to your ram's specifications.

    How much higher were you trying to overclock and what types of errors or problems occurred? Be specific.

    Your problems are mostly due to some incorrect voltage settings.
