This is my first OC attempt and everything went "well". I OC'ed to 3.1ghz instead of the 2.5 stock. Im using a multiplier of 10 at 300.
I cannot manually change the vcore using the bios, i can only monitor the voltage(asus board)
When im OC'ed, my network adapter IS NOT RECOGNIZED under the device manager, therefore no internet access.
I thought this was a fluke, i restarted, same problem. So then i changed the bios back to default and what do ya know? Network adapter was there again and everything worked perfectly. So i repeated the OC and sure enough, no network adapter.
Asus uses an on-board network adapter. I am not messing with any other voltages so no power settings have been changed. I really do not understand this what so ever.
No i didnt. I just wanted to go through the steps and see how easy/hard it was going to be. i stress tested the cpu and everything was cool i didnt get any errors. but like i said the only problem was with the network adapter.
i was checking out the newbie overclocking thread and on one of the screenshots that shows CPU-Z is kind of confusing. Should the CPU be running at the new FSB and multiplier AT ALL TIME? Even at idle? or is it only when there is a load? like running a game or something?
