Hmm im sooooooo tempted to buy one of those new Devils canyon CPu's that come out on June 2nd and pair it with a gaming series MSI Z97 Boards tongue.gif then either sell this little 760k or make a HTPC out of it

My board has the clear CMOS thing where you something metal to the two little pins. Using this is comparable to pulling out the battery, isn't it? Or should I just take that battery out for a bit?

Your VRMs may very well be overheating, but the heatsink never really gets hot because it is not making adequate contact.
I will inspect the VRM sinks after resetting my bios tomorrow. Hopefully it"s an easy fix that I overlooked. This is the first time I've done any overclocking, so all the infio/techniques are new to me.

some people have told me its got bad voltage regulator which i have no idea if its in important in OC (im complete beginner)

What that basically means, is that you are quite limited with your overclocking. You cannot go very far with this board, but moderate amounts of OC are no problem at all.

Any recommendations on how it should be done? i have seen videos of people recommending OC through bios while others in AMD overdrive soi have no idea which is the best way for my pc.
also if i was to overclock the 750k, are there any steps i should follow?

I'd say read this whole thread from start to finish.

Shut down the PC. Disconnect power, then short the 2 pins to reset CMOS. I find this is the best way to do it. Doesn't involve messing with a little battery.
Had many times where my OC was so unstable that BIOS would freeze up on me. Those 2 pins saved my life. Also bricked my mobo once. Lucky MSI has a BIOS reinstaller that works off USB.

Also, everymobo has a CMOS reset. If they didn't, people would be really angry.

Hi everyone, I would like to ask a question about my motherboard, a MSI A78M-e35. This motherboard unfortunately does not support voltage control in the bios and I have been using AMD overdrive as a substitute. The issue is that once I set an overclock in AMD overdrive the settings revert to the bios settings after a shutdown. Although, for some peculiar reason, if I restart my PC then my settings in amd overdrive work and overwrite the bios and its ridiculous voltage settings. Is there a way to fix this problem or some kind of work around? Thank you.

OC from BIOS. There are plenty of tutorials out there and in this forum too. Just pay attention on your temps.

I've recently started taking the lazy approach of getting a mid-level overclock stable through the bios and then using AMD Overdrive to tweak and push it further and test stability without having to constantly reboot and test. Once I find a good setting in Overdrive I'll go back to the bios and lock it in.
