But my Bios resets to a safe setting so it will boot and change over if I do something like that.
Ive noticed my top NB is 2700mhz. Ive also found that if you get into windows how to know if your cpus caused a crash or your ram/ht/nb. If you BSOD its CPU, if it just freezes, its your NB/HT/RAM.
Also check your ACC, up until the most recent asus update I wouldnt even post with ACC on anything but OFF, due to a bum core. Try making sure its off and see what happens.
Yeah i have ACC running on auto i'll try turning it off when i get home today and play around with it some more. Was trying to run it at 220x15 last night but it didnt seem to pick up. loaded fine and everything but CPU-z was still showing me at 3.0 GHz instead of the 3.3 GHz I was trying to get it at last night.
I'm still running my ram at 1600MHz and doesnt seem to cause me any problems atm. Earlier when it'd crash it just wouldnt even post it'd just lock up at it so guessing it was set too high on earlier OCs. >.> problem was trying to get back into BIOS cuz it'd try to run post too fast before it let me in XD that was a battle.
anyways ftm its sitting at 3.0GHz and 4890 radeon is OCed at 950 MHz with 985 MHz mem. Cant seem to get it any higher because i get artifacting like crazy
(especially trying to play my Riddick games or CoD5... i love that game. dont want artifacts ><) Would that change if i was able to get higher OCs on my cpu?
