Just changed my motherboard and ram not sure how to overclock as every time I touch the multiplier windows does not start. Coming from Asus so not familiar with Gigabyte bios at all, do I have to play with ram settings as well?

Don't know about that specific Gigabyte motherboard, but if it came with the "EasyTune" utility there's an auto-overclock utility that runs (under Windows) that sweeps the various CPU and RAM timings to supposedly provide an optimum overclock for the system.

It's called "EasyBoost" and is under the "Tuner" tab. Important! See the EasyTune section of the motherboard user guide for key info on how to use EasyBoost settings.

This probably will NOT provide the very best performance you can get out of your system but it's a start. For example, I think it doesn't vary voltages, so it's interpretation of a "stable" system would be made at whatever voltages you or the BIOS have set. Obviously there are cases where increasing a given voltage would result in more stable performance at higher clock rates, and thus EasyBoost would not see that improved stability unless you have already adjusted voltages in line with your expectations.
