View Full Version : Have i altered my CPU

10-01-2003, 10:43 AM

i decided to venture into the big BAD world of Overclocking, and decided to overclock my AMD 1800+ to a 2000+, using the "supposedly" easy redStorm overclocking Technology.

i got it to 1900+ ok

and pushed it to 2000+ but it took for ever tryin to check the DMI Pool Data on start up so i decied to put it back to 1800+ not wanting to permantly screw it up, NOW if i want to get a Post beep on start up telling me my system is fine i have to shut down and boot up.

it wont pick ip my CPU on a restart, no post beep, and detects my IDE drives all over again.

have i done something STUPID?

and one more thing, if i dont run my CPU cooling prog it will stay exatly on 47.C just ideling and with full load!

i set the bios back to the "Optimized Defaults" but still no change!

Try failsafe defaults. If that doesn't work the reset the bios using the cmos jumper on the motherboard.
