Not sure about your OC problem...
Post your full BIOS settings and you may get more help.

For screenshots in Win7 use the Snipping Tool!
To host images... why not upload them here?

Im well aware that imageshack has resizing. I just didnt bother cause i didnt know everyone would get thier panties in such a bunch over a pic, now the one you put up thats been resized cant be made out unless you zoom in 200%.

So I just got back from the grocery store and thought I'd give it a go again. Somehow it is now stable at 180 BCLK on 1.325V. No idea why.

Ran OCCT for 20m test and its fine, temp reaching around 48c at full load. Is that too hot or just fine?

try 180blck @1.42, if it posts, up the blck untill it doesnt post.... go back to where it did post and run OCCT to check for stability.
try upping your ram voltages to 1.9 instead of the 2.1 I had recommended before.... It could be the ram needs more volts to run at the speed we're asking it.
maybe if he wants to melt something

Try turning Load Line Calibration on (vdroop control)

It lets me run my 750 20x Multi 200 blk
1.32Vcore

my temps never go over 60C (same cooler as you)

You possibly also just got a bad chip. Try selling it on here, or returning it the place you bought it from if you rly want a nice OC.

Sorry my post was more meant to reflect the idea of a spam post pimping out an offsite webiste - lost in poor translation - and your right I did do the image wrong. Fixed it.


For me an many others not using a 24inch screen - 1920x1200 throws off not just your post, but the whole forum page - hence the reason why such enormous photos are usually not well received. Its much easier if you crop, or just use the imageshack image thumbnail tool


I also have learned to really like Picasa Web Albums as a quick online photo editor & hoster

I don't know much about the i5's but could it be something to do with the memory controller on the chip? just a thought not try to confuse you more
