Any help? Because when i DO get my OC good to go and booted up, I am afraid to restart my computer because of this.
Sorry dude, I can't tell you WHY it does that, but i have seen something similar happen before. And it just so happened to be an ECS board it was happening to as well. Maybe there is some kind of lock in the CMOS/BIOS that keeps it from saving overclocked settings after system restart/shutdown.

Comp, did you test for stability at 2800mhz? How much Vcore are you running? Did you adjust your memory frequency? If that overclock is not stable then you will run into problems.
Did you happen to have a chance to read any of the overclocking guides? Here's one that is very helpful: http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html. I'd recommend first off finding the limits of each component. That will give you a nice baseline.

Let us know

Good luck

If your BIOS is resetting your changes then there has to be an option that is allowing it to do this in the BIOS or possibly a program that came with a disk when you got the motherboard.

That's a nice OC. Your 3dmark score seems low. I was getting 6K with with a 8600GT and a x2 4200+ @ 2.6. With an 8500GT I got about 4.5K. Did you OC your video card? Set it at 625 core and 950 memory.

Yeah, the first time I found that thing I printed it out and read it.

My vcore is locked at 1.31 if I remember correctly. I set my memory to DDR2 400 to offset it all, and I ran a small stability test. But I restarted my computer and lo-and-behold I could not boot with those settings so I did not get a chance to actually do a comprehensive test.

Also as far as I have found there is no setting in my bios that does this...I am honestly confused.. Let me get what it says and I will edit this post accordingly.

Also another funny thing...The makers of this board suck at spelling.. Pop in my bios CD and I am ashamed...

Fossil, in my experience if the BIOS is defaulting to factoring settings then that means the current overclock is not stable. The new settings definitely need to be tested in my opinion

Good luck

Comp, your BIOS does not allow for any changes to your Vcore?

No it does not which is VERY annoying. Someone mentioned me needing a modded bios because the ECS bios will not allow it.

Also found what it says...brace for the odd structure of it..

Warning! Now system is in Safe Mode.

Please re-setting CPU frequency in the CMOS setup.

Ok, now the thing is, it does this even if my FSB (or reference clock, i prefer FSB..it's shorter) is at 220 (which would be a 2.4ghz OC if I remember right) it does this..Not always but yes it does..It also does not always do this with my 2.8ghz OC which would be a 260 FSB.

EDIT: I think it might have something to do with my motherboard temperatures...Because if I leave it off for a bit it works (much better chance of booting) Is my northbridge or southbridge or whatever getting to hot and is that what is causing this?

I will also try Overclocking my graphics card a little more..But I am afraid I might fry it..I cannot afford a new one for awhile...

MCP (AMD equivalent of NB) could be overheating, trying sticking an 80mm fan over the heatsink. It would be sad if that was the cause of your problems, but at least it can be remedied easily.

Yes I can easily do this...I found a guide that I can follow..pretty simple..now all I need is an old show so I can use the shoe string to hold it down.

Oh yeah...also if I overclock my 8500GT to TO much like the recommended amount that person near the top of the thread said...It will cause massive artifacts and freezing. I might try something oh so slightly higher, but anything more and I am afraid of what will happen...
