Does the auto-overclocking feature work at all?

I use this on my XP 2800+ box. It works OK, but it's kind of dumb. For example if I changed the FSB via the BIOS, WarpSpeeder would not pick up on the change. It would just see whatever you had it set to last. The auto-overclock feature is not so good IMO. It caused my box to reboot every time I used it.

EDIT: Fill out your system specs, it helps us help you! Also, check out folding, it's for a great cause!

I have not yet put the machine together but the parts should be here tomorrow. I'd like to use the Warpspeeder if possible but I'm by no means afraid to do it manually. The machine specs are now on my posts.

Well, as a word of advice, from personal experience, please save yourself and those around you the headache of using this software. It hosed my Windows installation so badly that only a hard drive wipe would give me a clean enough platform to install Windows back onto. Sigh.......

Actually, for me WarpSpeeder seemed to work really well. The Auto Overclock got me an 11% increase. But here is my issue... nothing saves after a reboot. I do the verify, save, whatever and if I reboot it always goes back to stock speeds.

Any ideas what may be going on?
I have sent 3 emails to Biostar and have not heard a peep from them.

Hello..

First off, I wanted to say my experience with BioStar has been great, even with phone calls. There is a gentleman named Nate who handles the repair issues, etc, but he knows just about everything about the boards that are made there. The issue you're having with it not saving the settings is odd, because I have no trouble with mine remembering them. Yes, I will admit it is a little buggy, but I also found a few other things that might make bugs worse. First, are you using the "Optimized Defaults" on your CPU Clock speed settings page? That's a MAJOR one to check on. Spectrum Spread was enabled on mine by default, and I turned it off, and needless to say I couldn't get WarpSpeeder to do very much reliably for me. I have a 3.2 Ghz Pentium 4 with HyperThreading, and it's running just fine at 3.5 Ghz. I would go higher, but last time I did, my WIFI adapter hated me, and decided not to let me online. It not only clocks your CPU up, but also your RAM, and AGP and PCI too, keeping everything clocked compatibly. If you just jam in the clock settings in the BIOS, good luck, because these other components won't be clocked to work in harmony with the CPU setting you decide to use. Again though, I do agree, it is buggy at times, but if your BIOS is set right (and by right, I mean let their default settings help you over clock with WarpSpeeder), it should work like a charm. I have been overclocking since I was on a 486 83Mhz Intel Overdrive CPU clocked at 100Mhz. The only reason I knew it was at 100Mhz was because I couldn't play stereo MP3's at 83Mhz, but as soon as I set those jumpers on the board to clock it to 100Mhz, it was able to keep up just fine. I hope my suggestions help. If you are open minded enough to try, then you may be happy with the results. Good luck all!

-Rob
