A few overclocking problems...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm having a few problems with my motherboard, I heard alot of people say that this board overclocks fine but I have some problems. I have the latest bios.

1. First the cpu ratio will not change for some reason, if I lower it to 10 it will say 11 still in cpu-z and I can confirm that cpu-z is correct because I tested it in si soft sandra. I need to lower this because my ram will not handle the speeds.

2. Another thing is how the bios reports things wrong...when I use the memory divider it will say the ram mhz is at 206 but in cpu-z its really at 194...

3. Last thing is that I have seen many people get their 4400+ to 2.8ghz but in order for me to boot up with that speed I'd have to have the voltage at practically 1.7V. It always seems I have to have really high voltages, I went to 2.7ghz and I needed over 1.6V or it would not boot, I have seen people get there with alot less voltage than that.

If anyone that has this board or has owned this board knows any input on this that would be great! Thanks!

have you tried updating the bios yet??? if no, then do it... if yes, then flash it and do it again, maybe reset the CMOS and see... do you have any spares to try it with? maybe it's a faulty board... how old is it??

As I said I did update the bios and I tried it again a week ago just to make sure...to reset the cmos I have to remove the battery and put it back in?

The board is a year old and I have just started getting into overclocking a month ago on this board.

I tried resetting the cmos and the multiplier still won't change...a weird thing is that when I right click on my computer to see the specs it shows the speed as if it were on a 10x multiplier but in cpu-z it shows the truth wich is that it didn't change!
