I am absolutely new to overclocking. I am a PC gaming enthusiast and I am finally getting into OC'ing. I have looked at the guide and tried to understand some concepts to some extent.
Currently my set up is this:
Video card - NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 @ 3.0 GHz
Motherboard - ASUS P5QC LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
RAM - Patriot Extreme Performance Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
And 2gb of some other DDR2 RAM
Case - COOLER MASTER HAF 922
Power supply - Cooler Master Real Power Pro 750W Power Supply
Here are pics of what i put in initially into BIOS. When i boot up, my computer tells me that the Overclocking has failed. What am i doing wrong?
I would say that your FSB speed is too much for stock voltage. either back off the frequency or up the voltage. Read the guilds and get as much info as possible prior to changing anything...you can fry stuff really easy. Learn what voltages that CPU can handle before you start upping them. And monitor temperatues. And back your PCIe frequency back down to 100MHz...I've read several places that anything over the 100MHz hurts performance instead of helps. You also have all 4 ram slots occupied (2x2 plus 2gb more)? remove the 2gb more and just try the 4gb...most motherboards don't overclock well if all ram slots are occupied.
