Ok i will have a look at it to see what i can sort out. if i alter any of the setting does it save to the auto overclock option? (what i mean is if i change stuff and it goes wrong, i can reset it back to normal right? ive never manually OC'd before so im kinda new to it)

Most all bios menu's have a default option to restore back to original default settings. Also before booting from the bios menu after making any changes or not you are asked if you want to save changes.

I would save a default profile (with any base changes you make) in the BIOS, then save another one with the working overclocking settings, then use a third to make more changes to get it working fully.

Your BIOS may not support that, so you might want to write the settings down or keep track somehow.

Hello, In what range should the core voltage of an i5 2500K (no OC) be under load? I ask because last night I was playing a game and noticed it was at 1.3. Not sure if this is normal when I see others posting about their OC and a voltage under 1.4. When its not under load its 1.0 V. Heres a...
