Asus K8n, BIOS questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello

I have an ASUS K8N mobo, and have been experiancing some problems.

First of all, in my bios I can select jumper settings. In this section i can overclock by percent or manually. If I choose manually (by percentage isn't very high) I get a 200-300 option. I try 210 and restart. All goes well, so I choose it up a little to 250. And all goes well, Have 2,2 GIG. The next time I restart it says there has been an FAN problem. The fan is too much rpm. So I choose to ignore it. Then I restart and go into the Bios again. I see that the Bios has restarted itself to normal values(no oc etc) So i want to OC again, i choose 230 and save and restart. First the pc won't come on. So I put it off and wait a while, then I Start it again. Now comes the problem, it won't start properly. Sometimes it frezzes in the beginning, sometimes in the Bios and sometimes while in windows start screen. I don't know what to do! Is it the processor or maybe the Harddisk?

Also i would like to know if AMD Cool and Quiet technique is good for anything should i turn it on in the Bios or not?

Thx

Okay, firstly ensure that Cool 'n' Quiet is disabled if overclocking.
Those are quite big jumps on the HTT. It's either that your CPU or your memory is now unstable, my bet is probably both. Set your memory on a very low divider eg. 100 (1/2 etc) and then work on getting your CPU's max speed by upping the HTT at about 10-15Mhz at a time until you can no longer boot. Then vaise the Vcore slightly, but ensure your CPU temp get's no higher than 55C (pref under 50C) and keep repeating the process. When you have found the max, check stability with OCCT: http://www.ocbase.com/downocct.html or Prime95 until you have a stable CPU. Then work on your Ram speed from there by setting smaller dividers, loosening timings etc.
