Im trying to overclock my cpu, and i run into a few issues.
1). While in BIOS if i change my clock settings and press f10 to save, it reboots sytem. System them hangs at the press delete to enter BIOS screen, system restarts and BIOS loads the default clock settings. However, if instead of pressing f10 at the overclock MIT page, but instead i exit to the main menu, then click save and exit, then it wont hang, and it will load with my clock settings into vista.
2). Is related to 1). Even after i've been running my OC'd settings for an entire day, when I shut down my computer, and attempt to power it back up, it hangs at the press del to enter BIOS screen, computer restarts, it loads the default clock settings, then boots to windows.
My BIOS is the F2, my CPU is running cool, any idea what the deal is?
I flashed my BIOS to F3-e-beta. Instead of resetting itself to default settings after a shutdown, it instead decided to just not power up at all. So i then manually put it back on default, and it powered up...
Also, this new bios gave me the option of using a .5 multipier with my overclocking. Does the wolfdale e8400 support 9.5X, or is that only the 8500?
