Windows 7: Overclocking question

I did it! I set the multiplier and voltage to what I said before, set the ram to 667mhz, and set the NB Voltage to +60mv. I also set the Northbridge to 2000MHz, I think I kept forgetting to change it (It was set at 8x before, Lol)

It works and I get a temperature of 29C at no load, I'm gonna test with Prime95 soon.


Thanks Guys!

I turn on my PC this morning, and it decides not to post or do anything...
I had to reset the CMOS to get it to post

It was working fine yesterday, the temperatures were okay and everything.

Any ideas as to why it suddenly won't work?...

Probably just need to tweak the voltages a bit more.

More or less? Or is it trial and error?

Trial and error most likely XD

From what Ive read and heard a lot of people have been complaining about OCZ RAM so idk if thats your problem but it sounds like a good possibility. Now as for Overdrive not a good idea to try overclocking in that manor in my opinion always stick with the bios. Make sure your RAM voltages are at 2.1 too.
