When i go under the BIOS there is the "EZ OC" feature or w/e it's called, and i change it to OC my CPU to 3.6ghz but then when i save changes and exit, windows 7 (64-bit home premium) won't open. it goes to some screen that says there is a problem and windows can't open.
sooooooo what am i not doing right? can anyone help?
The same thing happened to me. It took some patience but I feel I have a very nice 3.6 GHz overclock. EZ OC sets the BCLK too high. Start small. I'm using 153 instead of 133. Leave turbo on and V-Droop off. Everything else is pretty much on auto including CPU voltage. See how that goes. If you want I may be able to send you my OC DNA file.
3.6GHz: (24hrs Small FFTs test, 30hrs-2mins Large FFTs test and 14hrs-12mins Memtest86+ stable!)
Load-Line Calibration: Enabled (or Level2 for Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD5)
