Therefore, your OC is unstable.

Something interesting happened this morning, my PC triple booted, and I got a message saying "Overclocking failed. Press F1 to go to BIOS" or something like that.

You get a message? I just get BSOD's.

It runs fine, I rebooted and it's running as we'll as ever. If it does it again I guess I'll ramp down to 4GHz

Wish I could OC my damn CPU and change the voltage on my GPU, I guess it serves me right for getting a "gaming" laptop.

More like "gayming" laptop, right?

What exactly is BCLK frequency? Because mine's at 103, that seems to be a really weird number imo

Can I lower this to 100 without crippling shit? Because that'd make the CPU ratio easy math

BCLK (short for BaseCLocK?) is (I think) the base clock of the CPU and motherboard, other things run on multipliers which are multiplied by this clock to have their respective clock. My laptop is at 97.3ish MHz, I don't know why it is not 100, which is the rated BCLK for intel CPUs and compatible mobos.

You can use the BCLK to some extent for minor overclocks on CPUs with locked multipliers, but usually, too high BCLK will cause certain things on the computer to become unstable, RAM and USB are some of the components that people report becoming unstable.

IMO the higher the better, as long as it is stable, anything between 97 and 103 should be fine, but I have never indulged in BCLK OCing, as it is bloody locked on my laptopl -_-

Been doing a little bit of reading, and it turns out that not many people like the AI Suite's overclocking software (which I used), and there's many stories of it giving bad overclocks. I think I'm going to leave everything as it is, as there doesn't seem to be a good way of removing an OC that it makes (good job, whomever made this program), as it doesn't back up the previous voltages and everything... I had them written down somewhere but that's only what the program gave me and I'm pretty sure it changes more than just that. The only issue I have with it is when I'm rendering videos out, it runs at about 70 degrees C (according to realtemp) for about 20 minutes straight... And I'm not too sure how hot that is for a 2600K. Another thing I'm confused about is that the AI suite is saying (right now, while idle), that the CPU is at 26 degrees C, while Realtemp says it's at roughly 35. I guess that the AI Suite is reading the overall temperature of the CPU, while Realtemp is reading core temperature. Which one do I worry about? I think I read something about the core temperature not meaning as much as the main temperature, but I'm not sure. I have Realtemp showing the temperature of Core 0 in the system tray at all times, is that a reliable number? Or should I focus on the actual overall temp? (that's somehow 10 degrees lower o_O)
