so i am having this problem with overclocking my cpu, amd athlon x2 kuma 7850 black edition on an ECS GF8200A motherboard, my problem is that when i go to the multiplier and step it up by .5 x, i.e. it says 8.0x1600 then 8.5x1700 and so on, the bios wont let me change the bus frequency so really its like 8x200mhz to get 1600 MHz per core. but when i turn off the ability to overclock in the bios it goes back to the stock speed of 2800 MHz per core. i dont know what to do please help.
in my motherboards bios setting it has an option to disable the ability to overclock. and to the other guy when i set it to 14x it overheats and causes my computer to turn off. but how would i go about turning off cool n quiet?
also when overclocking ability is disable the cpu goes to stock speeds
brand: Elite Group (ECS) Model: GF8200A Black Series version 1.0
i dont have access to a camera tonite so you can look into it if you want.
truth is i just built this computer over the summer and my friends are envious and need less to say i am tech support for them. also overclocking is just something i have wanted to know how to do for a while now
