    Here are the specs for my PC:

    Motherboard: ASUS Maximus Formula Special Edition
    Sound Card: SupremeFX 2
    RAM: 4GB
    Video Card: ASUS EAH3870 DDR4 512MB PCI-E 2.0
    CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600
    Hard Disk Drive: Hitachi 500GB 7200 RPM

    I tried to overclock my cpu to "crazy" using the bios menu but, my system keeps on unresponding and I get an error: "overclock failed". Is there any other ways to overclock my RAM, cpu and video card easily without any errors? Thanks!

    Is this a B3 or G0? Also, you could just increase the FSB to whatever in the BIOS, so to get 3000Mhz, you would put it to 333 3000/9=333.3

    Oh look your guys have the exact same motherboard, how cute. lol

    You know try overclocking it manually. Like waymon said adjust the FSB to get your results. You have a multiplier of 9 on your CPU so that means what ever you set the FSB as multiply that number by 9 and you have your CPU speed.
