I tried setting my RAM to spec on my new system and had a "bad overclock". I got a blue error screen and couldn't get into Windows. Can someone help me figure out what went wrong? On "Auto", things were showing up as 8-8-8-20. I changed the voltage and the speed and manually set the first 4 timings to 8-8-8-21, but something went wrong. Did I change something I shouldn't have in the bios?
