Joe, take care of yourself first.
Pop in whenever you can and don't worry, we'll still be here.
Hope you get to feeling better soon.

So I set up my old motherboard and ram with a new 3000+ I got. I installed Win7 (32) with it all stock, but then I overclocked the CPU to 2.4ghz. All seemed well after a few hours of stressing it, so I went for 300*9, and the PC posted, went to load the OS, and it froze with a giant logo of "7." I went to reboot, and the hard drive was corrupted. Not only that, but my USB keyboard stopped wasn't working, not even the LEDs on it were lit. I actually hurt my USB controller! After I got it into Win. Recovery with another keyboard (although only the F keys work on that due to spreading conductive glue between the plastic sheets ) the USB controller magically started working. It took my a while to actually go into the recovery thing. So after hours on recovery, it says it failed. I let it reboot and it boots into 7 fine .
My question is: Was the damage all temporary? Did I actually mess up the OS and recovery just lied to me?
I think its the motherboard that's holding me back from 300FSB, though I didn't have time to check anything between that and 267x9, so who knows.
What I would've done is pop the battery and reset the BIOS. A lot of the time this will take care of bad overclocks on finicky boards. After that I would've just left it at stock and tried to boot it.

I have never heard of permanent damage to a board from taking the reference clock or FSB too high. I have heard it losing the ability to utilize things such as the USB or firewire ports. Lowering the reference clock, and sometimes adding voltage, remedies the situation.

Been stupidly busy, and have been hurting as well with a bad problem with my back. I surrendered and finally saw a doctor yesterday. Most days, the pain is so bad I find it too much to even be sitting in my chair at home, and so I lie down.

I don't have time to read/post onto OCN anymore when I'm at work, either, with the situation being what it is. I'm wearing so many hats here that it's crazy. Beats being unemployed, though, especially since I depend on my paycheck to stay alive. Most of my free time, such as it is, is spent looking for alternate/supplementary sources of income. Unfortunately, jobs are hard to find these days.

It's very gratifying to see, though, that our little corner on OCN is still going strong. I always smile at the thought that you guys -- the real reason this Club is what it is, one of OCN's very best -- are able to take the ball and run with it. You guys ROCK.

As soon as things settle a bit (hard to say when that will be) -- I'll be happy when my back problems subside enough.
Of course we noticed your absence! Right along with thlnk3r and blitz hasn't been posting nearly as often either.

Sorry to hear about your back, hopefully just physical therapy will be able to take care of it.
Depending on where your back hurts, putting a rolled up blanket or something that you can get your knees almost to 90* helps the lower back tremendously. I strained the hell out of my back years ago and this was probably the most effective treatment. Doing this puts your back in to proper natural alignment and will relieve mid to upper back pain as well.
I hope you get better soon.

Well I did clear the BIOS first thing after I shut it off. Good to know I can't screw anything too badly .

Well guys, I'm not going to be running the sig rig much longer. If you couldn't tell by the new name...my motherboard is about shot.

It started off yesterday morning with my Opteron. I was attempting some more suicide runs, trying to get a higher HTT, so I could stabilize higher. Well, after a few runs at 370MHz HTT, the board wouldn't POST. Once it did, it wouldn't save settings to CMOS anymore . It'll save the basics, and my HTT clock. But anything other than that....I have no choice but auto settings. I can CHANGE them in BIOS....but it won't save. I hit save and exit, and it says it does, but the settings just don't stick.

My Jetway board started doing this a while back as well after some suicide runs. So I think I screwed something up.

Anyway, after that happened, a little while later...I heard a zap sound. And my rig shut off. I looked down, there was smoke around my CPU socket!!! It smoked on me three or four times yesterday . After this first time, my voltages started fluctuating REALLY badly. My CPU voltage ranges anywhere from 1.2-1.7v. Doesn't matter what chip. All other voltages are perfectly fine, and don't move around much at all (just like they've always been). So its a motherboard problem for sure.

So this morning, I pulled the Opteron to prevent damage. Threw in my Athlon64 3000+. I also pulled 2 sticks of RAM so I could do some overclocking. Here's what I came up with .

sounds like the mosfets are getting old and will need replacing, if that dont work then the pwm voltage control chip has degraded badly and that cannot be replaced.
most likly one of the mosfets failed, and your cpu is only being powered by the remaning 2 phases and that is whats causing the flucuations.
theres a chance it could be fixed.
as for the bios not saving settings what brand of chip is it?

I have no clue what brand chip it is. Whatever came on the board.

if you can try to flash a different bios chip with the bios for the a8n32-sli im sure it would fix the bios setting issues.
im almost sure that you have a winbond made plcc chip

RMA'd some Corsair memory and got this back.

200mhz, 1.5-2-2-2-6, 1T @ 2.75v
Interesting.
