1090T: Is this overclock critical, are the volts too high? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
CMOS is a little jumper, or button on your motherboard. If it doesn't have one, you can also take out the battery for a minute and it will reset. It stores the information in your BIOS. Resetting it restores factory settings and is "the get out of jail free" button when you bork up your overclock. You need to find this setting before you go any further. Especially when adjusting memory settings, you may find yourself resetting CMOS over and over to see which settings boot.

Voltage adjustment may or may not be the answer to your problem, as you will see when tweaking through your BIOS settings, and testing.

Thanks, will do that. But then again the world ends tomorrow anyway and getting a stable overclock in hell may prove difficult.
