Seriously ramming my face against my keyboard for the last couple of days hoping that the values that would come up might actually work.

This adventure of OC'ing has become level's upon level's of frustration as I try (horribly) and get as close to 4.0ghz as I humanly can, or should I say try and get it to even boot with higher clock speeds. The current overclock? Oh, that's with me upping the BLCK to 176 and keeping turbo on. That's it. Everythnig else is kept at automatic. Figured it shouldn't be too hard to manually increase voltages and get the thing up to 3.9-4.0, hell, shouldn't be that hard to get to 3.8.

Apparently it is that hard. Rabble rabble rabble.

I've cranked voltage levels only to get it to crash on the windows screen, which is frustrating to say the least, but it get's worse. Unless I've misread something somewhere, if I even touch my QPI/VTT voltages, it doesn't boot. I have to reset my CMOS to even get my computer to start, at least when I keep it on automatic I'm able to watch my computer crash as it cries in pain.

Hell, I've tried some insane values just to try and get my computer to be stable enough to log into windows; as a prime example.

BCLK: 203x19
VCORE: 1.4-1.5
PLL: 1.88
DRAM: 1.5
IOH/ICH: 1.2
QPI/VTT: 1.4 (doesn't boot) QPI/VTT: Automatic (crashes on windows splash screen)
Anywho, anyone have any idea's? I've fiddled with options, voltages, turned off turbo mode, even touched things I've never heard of before.
