Overclocking an AMD 965BE.. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Are you saying it fails with even a single increase on the cpu multiplier (ie 16 to 16.5)? If so that isnt right, maybe its time to flash you bios.

I have flashed it using the built in utility that came with the motherboard, which just downloads it and does it while the computer is running, but requiring a restart. But yes even with trying to change it from 17 to 17.5, it fails on the overclock. Maybe my BIOS utility isn't updating properly, I need to check in to the current version and make sure I have the right one.

Okay, I just double checked and I do have the most recent version of the BIOS, F3.
