Ok so I tried overclocking my i7 to 3.3 and after I save and exit the computer begins to start I get a beep then windows loads then I check the CPU speed and its still default, only in bios does it show the 3.3 I do not understand what is wrong even if I try to OC to just 2.7 which is only .1 higher than stock it does not go to the desktop. Perhaps my motherboard is bad? When I first put the computer together and had the RAM (which is triple channel DDR3) in the blue slots the PC would not boot then I put them in the white and it boots fine, also it stops booting if I try to get them to run at 1600 which is their stock speed, I have the OCZ gold 6GB. The voltage for the RAM is around 1.58v and the CPU's is about 1.21v Please help me. Thank you

It would help greatly if the members knew the make and model number of the motherboard

Agreed the motherboard make would help. How are you checking your speeds? have you tried using CPUZ?

What model processor are you using and what clock speed are you trying to achieve and how are you trying to achieve it (what settings are you changing, FSB?, Core clock speed, Voltages? memory timings?)

Have you OC'd before?

Anyway, as Sneaky says what volts you using? Also FSB is now BCLK Frequency for the i7. I have the same RAM as you and you can give them anything up to 1.65V, mine is at 1.64v. Anyway here's my OC.

CPU 1.2650
PLL 1.88
QPI 1.32500
IOH 1.16
D Ram 1.64

BCLK 186 with a multi of 21.

Also, make sure you got load line calibration enabled; if the setting is there! What CPU cooler are you using too?

My RAM voltage is set on 1.58 and my cpu's is 1.21, I have the i7 920 and the heatsink for it is the Noctua NH-U12P, like i said before though I tried to clock to just 2.7, which is 1 up from default still a no go. Also can you guys explain why the blue slots on the mobo arent working aswell? Thanks for all the feedback.

Read your manual. If you run 3 sticks they go in the white slots.

Whay happens when you bump your BCLK? No boot, CMOS reset? Did you set your memory timings? You can change your memory dividers to reduce you memory speeds for a specific BCLK to eliminate memory as a problem.

EDIT: Overclocking guide, applies to just about all 920s:
