From what I learned, it has been a common problem with many boards in the past. That's a common generic thing when installing a new CPU (where the CMOS must be cleared)

Thanks for clarifying that. I thought it might have been specific to the 7750. Would be nice to not have to go through that trouble.

Yeah it's high 80's in house like I was saying there hardly any wind outside seems highs cause the sun. If that's a good temp I'll just leave it for now. Seems like no need to really overclock as it is anyway. But it's good to tell people you're running your CPU at 3.4 or higher
But don't really have the need to go much higher than stock right now. Thanks again for the info!

Preeat, well technically if the bios is set to it's "factory defaults" then it should work. Most of the time the "factory defaults" will change a lot of options to AUTO which allegedly auto detects settings from different components (processor vcore, memory voltages/sub-timings ect). Just to be safe it's always wise to clear the CMOS before or after the new processor install.

Nalo_b, no problem. I hope your temperatures hold up. Shoot and sometimes I think 26C room ambient is killing me. By the way good job on the OC....keep it up

Good luck guys

Thanks for that bit of information think3r. I'll be sure to restore facturoy defaults before I install the CPU, as well as the new memory and video card I will be putting in. If that helps to avoid clearign CMOS it would be nice because I've personally never cleared the CMOS myself. Is it as easy as just shutting down the PC, unplugging everything including the power source and pulling out the battery and putting it back in? Like I said I've never done it myself so I don't quite really know how to do it, a friend did it for me once. Is it relatively easy to get the battery off?

Would be terrific if somebody could provide some instructions on how to clear the CMOS for this motherboard...

Preeat, most everyone has there own method of clearing the cmos. Typically the two most common ways are to remove the cmos battery (cr2032) for a few minutes and then re-seat it. The other way would be clearing the cmos via "jumper". It's a 3 pin jumper setting. Putting the jumper on 2-3 should clear the cmos. Make sure you do not power on the motherboard with the clear cmos jumper in position 2-3. It should always be back in position 1-2.

Those are the two easiest ways. There are however ways of doing a longer cmos clear which supposedly is better when troubleshooting POST'ing issues.

Hope that helps

Yeah I just did some reading and retrieved my M2N32-SLI manual. The instructions in that were as follows...

Quote:
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the onboard battery.
3. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
4. Reinstall the battery.
5. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
6. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.

Thread Starter 
I had a bios issue where my bios was corrupt to a point that the mobo would no longer post but I was able to fix it by removing the bios battery and holding the chassis power button for 30 seconds and then replacing the cmos battery. I got that trick directly from an ASUS Technician via live tech supt ph call. I was told that is an old school trick...

Good Luck,
