I cannot make any changes to the BIOS. I have set the OC jumper on the MB, I get into the OC module in the BIOS, but although the parameters are in red (meaning they can be changed) -- nothing happens when I try to go further.
Am I missing something?
Mike.

current setup:

XFX 750i SLI
Q6600 (G0)
4GB RAM
WD 500G x 2 (RAID 1)
nVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
( not yet SLI)

CPU frequency 2.4GHz

Does it have something called SLI ready memory? If so, disable it and you should be able to do everything. I have a 680i LT SLI and thats what I had to do. XFX board as well.

Hi guys.
@dickcruz & @billin30:
I eventually realised that you had to use specific + and - keys (ie keypad)
anyway, I went up too fast and I think I fried my CPU. I can't recover anything. If XFX support have no good news for me, I'm taking in to the local repair shop, probably for a new CPU. I just hope the mobo, memory etc are OK.
Thanks for replying.
Mike.

It's OK folks!
you can put away the black armbands. The CPU was fine. Once I reset the CMOS, it came back. Only thing was, my system was perfect except the network card wasn't working. A new card didn't help and The techs (again techs!) said 'something' had corrupted the registry and made it impossible to install network drivers. I just got it back after reinstalling windows, and haven't hooked it up yet. I'm waiting till tomorrow so I have a whole day to tear my hair out. BTW, I only got notified about your post, dickcruz, today.

cool, i guessed that stuff might still be fine because ordinarily your power supply doesn't have the ability to burn stuff inside your case.
