So I've been dinking around, overclocking my powerhouse system, but I've run in to a wall rather early on.
Basically, in my BIOS I can't modify a whole lot of stuff, here's one of the screens (a bit different, but close)
The only difference being mine doesn't have a CPU VCore option.
Now, I was overclocking my FSB bit by bit, 5mhz at a time, and I am currently running it stably at 230MHZ (normal is 200) and therefor my system is clocked at 2.3ghz....however, if I try and bump up the FSB to 240MHZ, the system won't even boot up to the BIOS screen anymore.....it just sits there when I reboot and the monitor stays on but nothing shows up. The first time I tried it I let it sit for a bit thinking it might work, and then my computer started beeping repeatedly so I quickly shut it off. The only way to get my computer to boot again is to take out the CMOS battery and reset the BIOS.
Is this something with me not having enough voltage? If so, is it even possible for me to fix change that seeing as there's no CPU Vcore option?
Here's my processor's specs:
AMD Athlon 64 3000+
Code Name: NewCastle
Current Core Speed: 2299.7MHZ
L1 Data: 64KBytes
L1 Code: 64KBytes
Level 2: 512KBytes
