AMD Athlon II X2 255 Regor overclocking questions...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
(i don't know what info you may need to ill include all i can think of)

AMD Athlon II X2 255 Regor 3.1/OC to 3.6
M4N68T-M V2 mobo (Bios ver 0.5)
x2 DDR3 1333 2GB
XFX ATI HD 5770
Antec Truepower new 650w

i have a few questions about overclocking my CPU and some system settings. this may or may not be a problem but at both stock and overclocked settings (ill explain that later) my HT link on my CPU is in the low 1000's, and from my understandings it should be in the 2000-2200 range are they any concerns here? from my understanding these at pretty "safe" settings, however my system has a real problem with restarting after i "save and exit" from the BIOS. i know this can be do to a failed overclock but it seems to do it at random... when i looked into it i found out this problem can be common, is it somewhat normal for a system to "hang up" on such a restart.

default
3100mhz
200mhz bus speed
x15.5
1.404v
1000.01mhz HT Link

OC
3646mhz
235mhz bus speed
x15.5
1.404
1176.4mhz HT Link
Quite n Cool disabled
locked Multiplier at 15.5

is there anything that looks out of place? kinda new to this all and i did some research but i figure it is better to ask. as you can tell i am just messing with the FBS on the chip however any advice would be greatly appreciated thank you for your time!

Start here, from what I know the nForce chipsets on AMD sockets were not so great. Also try maybe removing one of the memory sticks, just to see if you can identify the problem.
