PC dead? :(

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, I got an evga motherboard with a 3800x2 socket 939 and I up the voltage in the bios. I got the core to go as high as 2.2GHz before but it froze on me and crashed. I then thought about uping the voltages because that could be the problem, just my understanding of electric circuits and stuff from school (probably thought wrong). I up the voltages by a small margine, one step up, something like only .25 or something of a voltage. I think it went from 1.5 to 1.75 or something like that. Anyways, the PC wouldn't work and there wasn't any clicking sounds, etc. So I took out the battery on the mobo (read somewhere that it resets the bios) and turned the PC back on. I get these "high frequency beaps" where the PC won't even work and shut off. The manual says that the CPU is overheating, but there seems to be no physical damage or if it is even getting hot to begin with.

Anyway of fixing this??????

OMG 1.76 is overkill. It took my opteron 165 on 939 to 3.2ghz on 1.65 vcore on water. You killed your cpu. You pushed it way to high. You shouldnt excede 1.5v core. If you didnt have it at 1.7v very long I doubt you killed it. I did 1.7v for suicide runs.. I hope i helped. You may have taken the board with it. If it smells burnt its dead!

if first you dont suceede reset your CMOS and try try again!

T1? Whats that, the internet line?

I think it was actually 1.45... I didn't go much over by my understanding, it wasn't much over the original one... :\\ it was only 1 step higher from the list, maybe I did go that high, dunno, no way to check. Is there a way of setting it back to normal voltage or is it already?

When it did have the higher voltage it wouldn't go the EVGA screen or give any sign that it was working (other than the power on lights). Once the battery was taking out it would just click and give the problem... nothing is coming up on the screen...

[EDIT] Ok, thanks so far guys, i'll see if what you guys said works
