CPU Whining after bios flash Tags: CPUs BIOS Last response: March 16, 2010 3:41 PM in CPUs Share jakeman249 March 16, 2010 2:03:48 PM My specs are as follows: CPU - AMD Athlon x2 6000+ 3.01GHz stock Video - XFX Geforce 9800gt 512Mb Motherboard - Gigabyte m61p-s3 PSU - ocz Stealthxstream 600w HD - western digital 250gb Just last night I had flashed my bios (F5) to F7F. The Gigabyte website tells me to Load Optimized Defaults after flashing, which I did. Now after that, I boot into windows, and what is this? My cpu keeps emitting a whine, or high frequency noise when under whatever amount of load. It has never done this before, not once. What setting would have changed? I will gladly appreciate any help given! More about : cpu whining bios flash jakeman249 March 16, 2010 2:41:35 PM Anyone?

Take the side off the case and try to localize the sound.

I ran cpuz after flashing F7F and the cpu clock was 1000mhz! and the multiplier was x5 I downgraded it to F6 to see what that would do, and then set the multiplier to x15 and it reads 3000mhz as normal. No whining anymore or high freq noises!!! Why it does that idk hahah Can't find your answer ? Ask !
