    Default Overclocking damage? Possible?

    Hi,

    I have been overclocking my X48-DS5 for a while (33% FSB) using 4Gigs (2*2G) DDRs. I upgraded with another 2*2G and, like any overclocker, wanted to see if I could tweak it again.

    My system is enclosed in a CoolerMaster HAF 922 and the CPU is crowned with a Noctua C12P-SE14 running at 1200RPM all the time.

    As I was pushing the hardware I managed to get to a somewhat stable system; more tweaking required. A reboot later, the system dropped to default settings. Since then, any attempt to change from GMCH strapping has failed. I can't go from 333MHz to 400MHz; the system will just put it back to 333. Also, any attempt in changing the FSB frequency in 333 strapping will indeed in the bios show the proper frequency but boot screen will always show 333.

    I re-flashed the bios (hey, you never know!) no chance there. Could it be possible that the NorthBridge be damaged? What other tests can I do to confirm that there is some hardware failure?

    My system works well at default speed (except for memory which can't seem to be able to run at 1066MHz since I got my second set of DDR2).

    Any thoughts?

    doing a re flash should have helped... Have you tried clearing the cmos? Try leaving the jumper on the clear cmos for 2-5min along with removing the battery. On start up enter bios and load optimized defaults. If still no luck try clearing the cmos up to 24hrs along with the battery out for 24hrs.

    Thanks, removing the battery/leaving jumper for a while did the trick.... Not sure why but it did.

    Thanks again.

    Glad to hear you got it back up and running.


    Normally you should only have to do a quick cmos reset but sometimes a extend clear is needed.
