Hi there,

When I overclock my computer in the bios using the EZ-Mode, I get the long beep followed by three short beeps on boot. If I press reset, it boots quickly without any problems. So really it's just a few seconds annoyance.

I can get rid of the problem altogether by going back to default settings, so I know it has something to do with the overclocking. I also know the one long and three short beeps has to do with the GPU (which I have reset and inspected - all was good and it's in place well).

I am a complete novice when it comes to overclocking so really going manual is not something I've felt comfortable with... I really don't know what to do.

So three questions:
1) Is it at all a problem if I leave it overclocked and just keep doing the Power on and immediate reset?;
2) Could someone let me know what to do to overclock and avoid this error? or;
3) Should I just leave it the hell alone and run happily in normal mode? I use it exclusively for World of Warcraft and surfing the net, watching movies, etc. Is the overclocking even worth it?
