Overclock on P4 burned my system, please help me! Tags: CPUs Overclocking Dual Channel Last response: June 26, 2005 12:46 AM in Overclocking Share jmabe June 24, 2005 2:47:38 AM Hi all, I own a P4P800-D, running P4 2.8 800FSB, ATI 9800PRO, GEIL 1024 Dual Channel and 2 Sata HDs. Since I am upgrading my system, I decided to try the BIOS overclock supplied in the Asus Motherboard. I set it to 20%, clock raised to 3.36ghz. Everything was working wonders, but I left the house today at 15:00 and when I arrived at 21:00 the computer was off, oddly. I tried to turn it on, but it wouldn't, at all. I think the overclock burnt my system, but I can't check because I can't even turn it on. I will send it to the technician tomorrow, but I'm anxious, and I would like to know what equipment I have possibly lost. Probably the MOBO and the CPU, but is my memory, HDs and VGA safe? Please, enlighten me! Also, is it a normal thing to happen? Thanks in advance.

ChipDeath June 24, 2005 10:22:48 AM I would've said power supply first... Unless that '20% overclock' option overvolts too, I'd be very suprised if it fried any components - If the PSU died then it could have taken other things with it though. --- <font color=red>"Life is <i>not</i> like a box of chocolates.
