    what's the major issue? Is it just that your i5 heats up too much when ocing with even the smallest adjustments?
  3. I don't know if it's the same overclocking on motherboards or every motherboard have it's way of overclocking, I tried to overclock on my gigabyte H55M-S2H, I followed it on YouTube step by step, but when I did the stabilization test it just crash, so I had to restart the bios, and do I have to overclock my memory ram to, so like I said I'm really a dump when it comes to overclocking, I want to know how to overclock on my H55M-S2H motherboard, if it possible, thank you and sorry for my stupidity. :)

    nah, nah, its all good, that's what this forum is for.

    Leave everything at AUTO to start. Set CPU voltage to fixed and 1.2v. Set VTT/QPI to 1.27v. Set dram to 1.6v. Bring QPI multi and ram divider down one notch. Continually bump bclk til you get no boot then back off by 10mhz once you either bsod or get no post.
  5. thanks a lot :), just tell me at what clock is that overclocking..!, I just want to overclock it at 3.5 or 3.7 for now, and is my cooler master hyper 212x enough to cool it down, thanks again.

    In what I wrote, there was no specific clock speed, it would just end up at the highest safe point. If it crashes in a game or something, keep dialing back the clock.
