|There are numerous other settings that need to be addressed to successfully overclock, not just the 3 that I listed. The reason you're getting the blue screen is either because you didn't lock the PCIe at 100MHz, you didn't adjust the CPU:RAM to run 1:1 ratio or you didn't increase the CPU voltage. It could be any one of those or even all 3. Like I said, it's all trial & error - but YOU have to know what you're doing and WHY.|
For instance, the reason the PCIe should be set to 100MHz is to keep it from changing. 100MHz is the default speed. If you leave it set to AUTO, it will automatically increase when you increase the CPU Host Freq. The same thing happens with the RAM. Whoever is coaching you apparently has no idea what they're talking about.
The PCI-e MUST be locked at 100MHz. And the RAM has to be adjusted to stay in step with the CPU. With the CPU Host Freq at 333MHz (1333MHz FSB), the RAM also has to run at 333MHz (667MHz DDR). All Spread Spectrum settings have to be disabled & EIST (SpeedStep) has to be disabled too. And as I said in my other response, getting the CPU voltage right is critical - if it's too low, the system will be unstable, lockup or become unbootable. If it's too high, the temp will increase & you run the risk of damaging the CPU. All CPU's are internally protected from overheating, but they are NOT protected from overvolting.
