    Default Help trying to overclock an E7200/GA-P35-S3G

    I went through the BIOS tweak guide that is stickied. Changed all my BIOS settings per the guide (no OC). When I reboot I get a read disc error, I changed back all the settings that I could think of that might have to do with my HDD with the same results. I had to "load fail safe settings" to boot.

    Could someone please hold my hand through this, this is my first time attempting to OC anything.

    other HDD - 1tb WD Green

    You need to load OPTIMIZED bios settings before you continue.
    Follow the initial suggestions in this post and follow steps #1 - #3.

    Verify that your system is stable by running Prime95, OCCT, or Orthos for 4 - 8 hours minimum.
    If your system is stable (no errors), we'll help you overclock your system.
    What are your o/c goals? gaming? encoding? intensive photo processing?
    This thread has the same mobo and achieved an excellent overclock.
    We'll help you get a stable overclock.
