How to take CPU back to stock?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, my CPU was already overclocked when i bought it. Im thinking of taking my CPU back to stock and having a go at doing it myself. Is it just resetting the CMOS? I wasnt sure if buying it already overclocked they may have put a lock on it or something? (Thats probably a really noob thing to say lol).

Thanks

Just reset the CMOS. All values would be erased and it'll be running at stock speeds/volts.

Usually done moving a jumper or removing a battery, but some mobos do have a button for that. Personally, i'd remove the battery just to be safe.

A CPU cannot be "already overclocked when i bought it."

A CPU overclocked is entirely based on the motherboard/system configuration for it. A motherboard at default and/or removal of OS OCing tools would revert a CPU to stock.

(Note, that newer CPUs do some form of automatic underclocking and overclocking.)

This is just plain false.

A lot of CyberPowerPCs and IbuypowerPCs come pre-overclocked....

Not to mention every now and then i see bundles on Tiger direct with i7's that come at 4Ghz...
From FX to i7

i think thats because they fudge with bios before they send it out.

what he ment is the cpu its self cannot be pre overclocked.

if you moved the ibuypower cpu to a new board it would be stock again.

Ok, i meant the system was already overclocked.
What do you mean OS overclocking tools? I thought it was all in the BIOS? I know that you can get software to overlcock the cpu but thats not the case with mine. CMOS it is then.
