Bizarre overclocking behaviour Tags: Overclocking Last response: November 9, 2011 7:56 PM in Overclocking Share Mikey787878 November 8, 2011 6:41:35 PM So i'm stuck. Re-posting in the hope of a reply. I overclocked a little while ago. All I changed was the core multiplier (to 43) and the memory setting (to x.m.p). It works fine. but if I leave the computer shutdown and disconnected from power, when it restarts it loads the settings from a failed auto-tune software overclock, the overclock fails and it dumps me in the bios. Why is this? I can restart over and over and my manual clock settings stick. System: i5 2500k asus p8p67 pro thermalright mux120 cpu cooler 8gb corsair vengance memory cooling and power seem fine.

I doubt mobo battery is dead - it doesn't reset to default settings but to some random settings it did once via a failed auto overclock awhile back. Do I need to clear the cmos? How do I do that and is it risky? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
