well I really don't know much about overclocking ram (cpu I get a little more) I just increased ram voltage by .03. A seperate question if my overclock doesn't work my computer turns off and on like three times then just resets defaults. Is this bad for my computer? and do I still need to reset cmos or is that the same thing. One last thing cpu-z says core voltage is 1.296, core temp says vid is 1.3125. Just to make sure vid is core voltage right?

You have a fluctuating voltage the set voltage is usally a maximum (correct if wrong)

And i am not sure what vid is, i don't think it's cpu.

Back to stay?

yeah vid is cpu. and basically that like determines heat output, and essentially if you have a high(er) VID you're OC is limited. I have the same issue, i can't get past around 3.0 cause my vid is high. You're gonna have to up the voltage and just monitor temps, make sure it isn't too high.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

well I reached 3ghz stable prime 95 for overnight. Still have not touched the voltage. So vid is v core then? If so they both can't be right, cause each one stays the same they are just both different. O and I set my ram ratio to 3. and I still need to know about that cmos problem cause I just don't know.
