Hello,

I am new to the boards and am very interested in overclocking. Sadley, I bought this mobo. It's not that sad actually, it's quite a nice mobo. The reason that I'm posting is because I downloaded the tool that Intel released shortly after I got my MOBO, it's called Intel(R) Desktop Control Center. I read that you can't overclock Intel-manufactured motherboards because the bios is locked or something. I'm a newb at overclocking so bear with me.

Everytime I try to run the problem I get this error:

First box: An unexpected error occured during initialization
Second box: The instruction at "0x01821c66" referenced memory at "0x019d06a0". The memory could not be "read".

Clock on OK to terminate the program

Any help, anyone?

That's an internal error with Windows, sounds like some file is corrupt or isn't working right

Hey,

What's better for overclocking, p4 or amd? I am buying something within the next two weeks, the only thing I like about my setup right now is my case and my mobo :p

maybe we should move this over to the amd section now but I dunno :p

Which amd 64 bit is good for it's money? the 3700 clawhammer is $469 @ newegg, but I was thinking of going like 3200 or 3400, any suggestions?

well they both overclock pretty well, but the AMD's are better for gaming, while intels are great all around CPU's

Seeing that i have one, Id have to tell you go intel
