Im afraid it happens to the best of us my first atempt to overclock thru bios was an epic fail my second atempt to overclock was an success.

My Vcore is at 1.35V
my cpu is Amd phenom X2 7750 non BE clocked from default 2.70 to a whopping 3.053Ghz.

Upgrade to a Phenom II. 3GHz is the stock speed for the 940BE and 3.8GHz is easily achievable. 4GHz and higher takes more tweaking, more luck, and usually better cooling.

At least get an Athlon II. Anything besides the original Phenom CPU architecture (or older) is better.

interesting how much is that processor by any chance. and what motherboard do you have. mines is Asrock and it supports amd phenom FX /phenom/athlon 64 FX/athlon 64 dou core/and basically phenom 2 X4,X3 processors. my boards pretty flexible.

does your board support untied overclocking its just a term for safer overclocking. Even tho are motherboards are different i can simply go into bio's and click on the cpu option tab and enable untied overclocking which is cpu,pcie,async. which means there in a fixed mode which means the frontside bus is untied during overclocking and it makes the overclock more stable and much more safer.

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Black Edition Processor - Processors - Desktops $169.99

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops $102.00

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops $76.00

The Phenom II BEs are what I would recommend for OCing as they can OC much more easily and generally don't require the motherboard to be as stable at high speeds.

My motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-MA790FXT-UD5P. It supports AMD's newer socket AM3 processors only.

As for OCing, all speeds are determined by the respective multiplier in relation to the motherboard's baseline FSB speed. (default 200MHz) There are separate multipliers for CPU, RAM, PCIe, and HT (Hyper Transport). So yeah, completely asynchronous system operation is possible; in fact it's normal.

I hope he's from the American Georgia, not the Eurasian one, otherwise Newegg links don't help much :p

Anyway, CMOS resets are probably routine for most OCers, especially when they get a new chip and their mobo doesn't do it by default when the OC fails. Before just upgrading for some nice OC, first ask yourself if you really need more power. I got a Q8200 which is kinda hard to get past 2.8 (400*7) on my P35 Gigabyte board, and it's tempting getting more, but for everything I do I have more than enough horsepower anyway :)
