C38368It says frequency, but that's a multiplier setting. That's the LDT multi I was talking about. Make sure that: (LDT * Core Clock) =< 1000MHz
The other multiplier setting (which will range from 11x down to like 2x, in .5x increments) stays at 11x for now. That's the core clock multiplier for your CPU. If you changed that, that would explain why you suddenly had a six-year-old CPU :)
@Hmmmdonut~ And you don't learn a thing by doing that.
In what way? I learn how to overclock using both clockgen and the bios. Just my bios is a little bit to buggy for my taste. Either way I my first overclock was a sucess.
I was looking at at the screen shot the OP posted and I am wondering why he overclocked his ram? Some value ram isn't going to go 1:1 with the cpu. Set these value in the bios
CPU multi - 11x LDT/HTT multi - 4x Ram - 166mhz, 2T HTT bus - 230 220x11 = 2420
The computer "should" bootup normally into windows. Once in windows run Prime 95--->Large FTT's for 4 hours. After that run Super PI--->32m. If both pass and are stable then you can go a little higher. I recommend running speedfan in the background to monitor your temps. If they go above 50C then you need some better colling.
If the computer does not bootup then reset the bios and try again. It could be that your cpu might need a voltage boost to get over 2420mhz.
There is a program called softfsb, google it. You can change all of the standard bios oc settings from windows. (If you are really brave it works on laptops too) The nice thing is that it is software so you do not have to worry about messing up your bios.
As for your GPU, google coolbits, It unlocks your nvidia drivers oc features. It even has a "detect optimal settings" button, that keeps you from damageing your card.
That was suggested earlier.
It's all fine now. Might experiment some more later. :)
