I followed the overclock guide that is posted here at the forums (http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,4072.0.html
And I adjusted multipliers in the Bios under the 'conservative dynamic overclocking' section. I would like to use this instead of just maxing it out all the time.
I tried 40,40,38,38 and 110 for wattage. It ran cenemark and wPrime just fine. Wprime (1024M) got the cpu heat up to low 60's -maybe around 61-61 tops) Cinemark never went above 52*.
After playing L4D2 for about an hour I got a BSOD.
I've turned it down to 39,37,36,35 and 105 for watts. Haven't run this in game yet.
But i do get a similar thing as before. It has to restart twice when I boot up. I haven't backed up the BIOS yet but I read somewhere I should probably leave the old bios alone. I think the manual says to not adjust it.
So I don't know. I suppose that it is still running the original bios (FB I think it was), even though I have updated my main bios to FD.
(So how should I do this, reset my main bios to stock settings (auto for multipliers), back it up so it will be FD also. Then OC the main BIOS?
Would that even help the restarts at all?)
