My overclock reverted to stock on its own?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I was using my PC as normal today and everything felt really sluggish.
Being the OCD person I am I went totally anal over my SSD and GPU and everything, running benchmarks and stability tests and yelling at my SSD and I even considered reinstalling Windows.

Then I realized my CPU was at stock speeds instead of 4ghz.

My PC hasn't crashed recently. And I know that it reverted to stock settings today, because it didn't feel this sluggish yesterday. I don't remember doing anything that could have reset the settings.

What gives?

Oh I was able to restore the overclock through BIOS anyways. Interestingly, when I went into BIOS my OC settings were still there. I just hit F10 and rebooted.

Did the battary die?? If the comp powered off and the battary died...that could have reset the bios...

Has the cpu rebooted lately?? Could have failed on a reboot for some reason...

Something probably happened during a reboot.
