Of course in BIOS there is something more but the main purpose of the bios is only to get the cpu running so that it can load the mbr from the disk and then it gives total control to the OS. Hence you can erase the CMOS from Windows and most likely your OC settings is gone? How would you do that if you think of the BIOS is controlling everything? Programming a chipset driver isn't a rocket science either, actually is all happens now and from other human being.
I cannot say anything about your bad experience with software OC but most likely if don't put some serious effort in something you can quickly say it's bad it's nothing to me. It's like your job when you choose a job you aren't always satisfied with your choice and then it also happen you must jump over your shadows to enjoy it?
2. I think my cpu is just starving. But it's good to know where I can look when my temp is going to far.
Ok last time, because this is a debate that's almost not even worth having. And I don't want to get in what's starting to feel like a pissing contest with, but probably not for the reasons you might assume. Just two thing's
1.) "Hence you can erase the CMOS from Windows and most likely your OC settings is gone?" (??) what? "CMOS" dosn't exist within windows it's a set of instructions written into a chip on the mother board and if you DID somehow manage to corrupt it or wipe it out you be done. No Post up no nothing. Plus which stop me if I'm wrong but "CMOS" is a term that isn't even used any more, now it's just BIOS which is in the process of being replaced by what "UFIBIOS"? and technology marches on and on bla bla bla...
2.) as for teaching me 10-20 years of experience, dude, I tried hard to be civil in my response as I am now, I'd appreciate the same, and just for the record
, my first computer was a TANDY-1000 and I cut my teeth in college on a trash-80 and an IBM main-frame that HAD A CARD READER and 7-track TAPES, (reels the size of an LP)
BOTTOM LINE? You like to use software to OC, I'm fine with manual BIOS settings. Whatever, no big deal. Each to his own. "That's what makes horse races" and all all that.
I'll let you have the last word if you want it and I'm sure you do, but I'm done with this particular debate.
Peace bro, happy tweakin'!Edited by NoNewEgg4Me - 6/1/13 at 4:48pm
