Hello everyone,

I overclocked my cpu to 4.5GHz. I ran Prime95 and opened CPU-Z to test it but noticed that the clock speed was extremely low (200x7 multiplier) even when it was under load. It wouldn't rev up at all. I did some digging and noticed that the slow mode switch was on, so I turned it off. After that it refuses to boot. I can't even get to BIOS even after an update and clearing CMOS. I turned slow mode back on and it still won't Post. I get the Q-Code 5D and i got 5E once after re-seating the RAM and using only 1 stick in the 1B slot.

Any Ideas would be great. Thank you in advanced.
