Default Overclocking Problems -- HELP!!!

Hello group,

I followed this YOUTUBE.com video to the letter.

I was able to get to 5.0Ghz for my CPU.

However, for the RAM the highest I can go is 1600Mhz!! I have new RAM that can go at 2133Mhz.

So, why will the BIOS not accept a higher level of RAM ??

In the video he wimped out and used 1866Mhz, but I cannot even get that!!

So what is wrong here?

Thank you,

CG :)

you can check for a newer BIOS maybe? I'm not sure.

In the meantime you can tighten the timings to compensate.
