A8N Prem BIOS + HT

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey folks,

I've just updated my CPU to Dual Core & purchased some new RAM to do a bit of overclocking.

I`m having a bit of an issue with my FSB though as it is currently at 1080

My CPU is currently at 270x9 = 2.4GHz and my RAM is locked at 200Mhz DDR400. My CPU OC is manual and all my RAM timings are at their defaults.

Things like voltages are all set to auto though.

I know there is something in my BIOS to lower my FSB so I can increase the clock speed some more but I`m having difficulty finding it.

Can anyone help?

Thank.
My System

Hmmmm thats not good. Erm.....have you tried downloading the latest BIOS?

It happened to me the other day i changed it but it didnt register so i just restarted my comp and it registered.

However, if you change it to x3 it might register. x2 is a bit too low so maybe its just bumping it up itself?

Yeah it just appears to be ignoring my HT multi for some reason.

My CPU can go further and I want it to, but I cant because of my FSB
