Alright so im overclocking the i5 using this guide

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2011/01/07/how-to...

The first time i had the multi thread set to 1, it booted without the voltage error but got hung up on the OS boot screen [BEFORE the actual windows loading screen]

After bumping it up to 3, Upon it restarting itself i get the message "Boot Failure due to overclocking or change of voltage"

Anyone help?

I should also mention this is my first overclock, and almost none of that article made much sense yet o_o

I suggest that you read and study about overclocking before you start tweaking settings. Once you become familiar with the process, overclocking is a lot of fun (and frustration).

I had been planning on upgrading it soon, that was an old cooler from my last build.

Plus i could use the fan it came with for an intake/outtake to imrove preformance.

Thanks for the suggestion :]
