my old i5 750 unable to O.C.

Intel CPUs - www.overclock.net
This is probably too silly to be asking about on here as this machine is ancient but here goes. I have and old i5 750 on a Gigabyte P55A-UD3 that was my main system at one time but is now a HTPC. I Used to run it overclocked no problem at about 3.8 GHz or so for a few years no problems. I moved it into a large HTPC case with a slightly smaller cooler, but still adequate cooling. I have changed from Win 7 to Win 10 fresh install although there is not Win 10 drivers officially. It has been working great on stock settings on the same bios I had been running forever (f11). Of course being a tinkerer I wanted to try set it back to a mild overclock (maybe 3.3Ghz or so). I was l a little rusty on how but following a Youtube video I did a very conservative version of those settings. I can't even get it too post. I dialed the BCLK freq. even as low as 140MHZ just to see if it would post and boot. NADA? It will only post and boot at stock 133MHZ settings.

Anyway probably a waste of time right? I ran Intel extreme tuning utility and it passes cpu and memory stress testing at stock and the cpu temp stays under 60C. '); }
