Help overclocking

Hey so I just bought this and I would appreciate some help overclocking without adding much voltage.
Intel Core i5
Gigabyte P55A-UD3 mobo
4GB G-Skill Rip-Jaw series DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

I assume my other stuff is a little bit irrelevant as I only want to OC the CPU. After reading a ton of overclocking guides I still can't figure out what to do when it comes to my RAM.
I have this setup that seems to run okay but I have gotten the occasional blue screen
CPU Freq: 180x20=3.6GHz
RAM multiplier is at 8 instead of 10 which is what auto sets it to, I got the blue screen more frequently with it at 10.
VCORE: Normal which I believe is 1.18v
I'm still quite new to overclocking as a whole as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I haven't played with an 1156/1366 mobo yet so I can't help you but I bet you'll get some quick help in the Overclocking section. :)

    Try raising you ram voltage (check your ram's max voltage on the box).

    Try raising your cpu voltage, 1.18v (is this number from bios or a monitor?) sounds low for 3.6.

    I know you want to keep that to a minimum but if you aren't stable its that or lower your speeds. (Btw on c2q I know it helps to turn off the thermal things. Like speedstep, but I don't know if it applys to you)

    Are you using prime 95 to test you stability after an overclock? If not do so! If so remember to enable error round-off checking (in prime95) to show errors.
