Overclocking E8400, problem.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello overclockers!
I have a problem in overclocking my CPU.
So here it comes:

If I increase my CPU frequency in bios, after saving and restart my PC just doesn't load up and I need to put off it with Power off/on button on my case and next time I launch my pc, it reloads cpu settings to default ones.

Motherboard is: Asrock 945GCM-S & Processor is: E8400.

That means the overclock is failing. Pretty much everything in overclocking is trial and error. Isolate each part and slowly increase until you lose stability.

Make sure you turn off any kinds of speed step programs. (CL1, SPEEDSTEP, etc)

There are a TON of overclocking guides on here.

It means that your motherboard sucks at overclocking as its 945G chipset..

Also RAM is very important and 1066MHz RAM you want for the best OC results..

Get yourself a P35 or a P45 motherboard and make that E8400 do the magic..

CHEERS..
