Problem overclocking with ASUS M2N68-CM

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Title says it all really.

Basically, after getting an H50 I was planning on overclocking my X3 a fair bit, but the current MoBo I am using just won't let it happen.

Attachment 204100

The board will quite easily let you modify the Processor Multiplier and FSB.

Attachment 204102

You can hardly modify any of the voltages other than +50mv steps maxing out at +150mv.

Attachment 204103

VRAM is the only voltage which can be freely modified.

Attachment 204101

Additionally you can't modify any other multipliers. They aren't even shown anywhere in the BIOS.

Attachment 204105

Has anyone else used this motherboard and overclocked with it successfully?

Either that or perhaps I've missed something.

Thanks

Sometimes mobo's have other settings which can be accessed by pressing CTRL+F1 at the main screen, try doing this and/or searching for your mobo on google and seeing if there is another key combo which does the same thing.

Was thinking this last night and had a good hour or so of looking for an answer.

Gonna have another look.

Possibly consider a BIOS update to a newer version if one is available.

Flashed the BIOS using ASUS EZ FLASH 2 Utility and it has bricked my motherboard.

FOR F*CK SAKE!

Flash went without a hitch, it then finished/completed (message appeared saying so) then it rebooted me to a nice NON P.O.S.T-ING system with no Video output from both the Gfx card and the On-Board.

To make matters worse ASUS' ****ty website is BROKEN beyond repair. The form for RMA will not send due to an error.

Im Pissed.....
