I'm doing an overclock (first time I've done one) and I've discovered the HPET option, which I have a few questions about...
It's default settings are "enabled" and "32-bit mode". I'm using 64 bit Windows 7 so I figured it would make more sense to set it to 64-bit mode, but this seemed to destabilize my system and Windows failed to start. Any idea why?
Also, is it even an option that I should have enabled? Or more specifically, should I have it be enabled for an overclock? I've done a bit of research on it but couldn't find a definitive answer, which leads me to believe that it should probably be kept as enabled (default), but I'd like to be sure.
I'm using a GB p55a-ud4 motherboard and an i5 760 (will OC it to 3.6ghz), in case any of that is important.
