Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

Sorry dude. Booted for me first time.

I'd try leaving everything else the same as I posted and changing the Bclk to something less aggressive (which will also keep your RAM settings lower). Try something like 150 (for a 3.0ghz oc). This isn't too much considering your default is only 133.

Once you get a good POST and can look at how it runs (use some type of system monitor), you can go from there. You may have to bump your Vcore a bit more (though you shouldn't have to bump it much more than 1.35 at all).

Trial and error is a way of life for the oc'er.
