I loaded optimized defaults and entered everything back in to the settings when it was stable. So do I have to reset the cmos and take the battery out for 5 mins?
Anyone have any advice for my overclock. Trying to get stable at 4.20ghz The only changes I have made are:
Ram is at 5-5-5-15
If your oc fails and throws everything off, F7 isn't always enough bro.
Clear your CMOS by either removing the battery for a few minutes (5-15) or shorting them by touching a metal object (screw driver or butter knife) to the pins. They are two exposed pins to the bottom right of the board. *The manual shows you.*
Unplugged. Press start button for 20 seconds-- to discharge. Open case and ground yourself by touching the metal back. Hold metal object on the pins simultaneously for like 20 seconds. Button up. Plug in. Start. Load Optimized Default Settings in bios. Go from there.
Clearing CMOS isn't always needed after a failed attempt but sometimes it is.
