So, i put my FX-55 in my computer for a while and i had a problem posting when i changed multipliers from the default multi (lower, higher, etc) it gets into a post loop....it'll take 2-3 minutes before it will post, but eventually it will post....usually. This just doesn't seem right to me. I should be able to lower my multi as much as i want to w/o problems.....right?

So, then i put my 4400+ back in hoping that i could get it working again and not have the multi problem.... but i still do

lol, guess i should have asked a question...

Is there a reason for this/does this normally happen (this is my first rig i built and first OCing experiment)

thanks

Lowering you multipler decrease performance.
...Higher is better but there are many factors...
So yes...you CPU would take longer to post if you change the Multi lower, like from 9 down to 8

Does this happen anytime you make a bios change, or just with adjustments to your multiplier? If it happens with adjustments in general it may be something a good bios flash may correct. Sounds like some corrupt bios issues.

Look on dfi-street forum for TMOD's modded bios if you want an alternative bios. I use TMOD's 704-BTA, most do that frequent that forum, and I have never had one issue. Make sure this bios you use is compatible with your motherboard though.

Actually a lower multiplier with a higher FSB compared to a higher multiplier with lower FSB will yield significantly better results. Higher multi's are only better if the you are doing some extreme overclocking that no motherboard out there can handle if you had to do it with FSB adjustments alone. Thus the appeal of an FX cpu when you have a phase setup or similar.

I use that BIOS too. It's the best around.

Also, my old 3500+ didn't work at lower multis either usually....so...you're not alone.

i lower the multi so i can test my ram...... still trying to get the OC going


And it's not that it takes 3 seconds instead of 1 second. It tries to post like 15 times or so and fails.... then succeeds and posts.
