OC i5 750 using Gigabyte P55 UD6

hi guys, ive been trying to OC an i5 750 with the GB P55 UD6 MB with little luck.
It was recommended to just increase the multiplier but i cant seem to get it to work at all.

I am using gskill 2400 ram.
Any idea?
The OC guide kind of got me confused as I did everything that was mentioned there but my system kept hanging at bios load and had to reset to defaults.

I tried the following steps shown here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vsk5iocFlgg

And it loaded up ok. Ive run prime95 and encountered one error which said the following:

Worker #3
Test 1, 4000 Lucas-Lehmer iterations of m19922945
Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected.

Anyone have an idea?
System seems to be running fine though with stress tests putting the temps at around 50 degrees.

Did I botch something up? :(

  1. I've never overclocked my cpu but correct me if i'm wrong but wouldn't you decrease the multiplier when overclocking?

    Here's a link with an i-5 750 GA-P55-UD5 overclock

  2. yes its confusing the heck out of me.
    One guide saying one thing and another something else entirely.

    @ prime95 tests stopped with the same similar message yet the cpu temps are steady at around 50 degrees.

    Just remember that these guides aren't cook books!

    Your Mileage May Vary

    Keep in mind that not all chips are created equal... so be ready to accept the fact that your chip might not OC as high as ur Bud's or the Guy next to you at the LAN!

    Good luck and if you have anymore questions please feel free to ask them here!
