Overclocking booting problem

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I have been overclocking my E8400 and can't get my computer to boot once I put the FSB to 412 or above (3708MHz clock speed). Instead of a POST, a screen simply appears saying 'please insert boot device'.

My CPU temperature is not very high when I run Prime 95 with the FSB at 411. However one of the workers does stop working soon after I begin running the torture test, so I'm assuming that this overclock is not perfectly stable. Increasing the voltage might help but I don't know how to alter this as the options in the P5KPL-CM's BIOS are badly labeled. Does anyone know which options control which components?

The main problem is still the fact that it doesn't boot however.

I can't find another thread with this topic anywhere.

Any help would be appreciated

Increase the FSB a little more and you'll be reflashing the BIOS, a little more still and you'll be reformatting and reinstalling the OS.

What settings are you changing to overclock? Just FSB?
And, just out of curiosity, have you read a whole bunch of overclocking guides and stickies?

How would that reflash the BIOS? I don't understand. I am changing the FSB but also the memory divider option and the memory timings so that the memory doesn't interfere with the overclock. Also I've disabled the EIST. And yes I have read some guides.

I think they're asking settings like BLCK, Core Voltage, QPI and sheet like that.
