    Unhappy Help please...

    I followed a template for over-clocking from here ages ago but my computer wouldnt boot up with the changes I made in the BIOS. I recently noticed when i open up the Q-flash Utility that it has an option "load CMOS default" enabled and I am thinking this is the reason why it is happening. I tried disabling it by pressing "pg up/pg down" but when i restart it is re-enabled. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Should i use EasyTune6 "quick Boost" feature and overclock it?

    Overclock in the BIOS,it will be the most reliable,set cpu voltage to "normal",set dram voltage to 1.66v,set qpi/vtt to 1.3v,then set bclk to 21x162 to give you 3.4ghz,set memory spd to manual,then set to 10x,set uncore freq to 21x

    I've done that, but it still boots up with the stock settings. I've explained a bit of my problem.
    Any changes I make in the BIOS don't come out in windows. It still appears to be clocked at 2.67 GHz.

    The Q-Flash "Load CMOS defaults" is used only when you flash the BIOS.
    Try with 17x CPU Ratio to begin with and see how much you can go with default vcore.

    It doesnt matter what I do in the Bios, the changes I make don't come out when I boot into windows. as if it isn't recognising the changes in the Bios i have made.

    See that the battery is seated properly or try another one if you have.

    Where are you looking to see if your oc settings have been applied? If Windows download CPU-z and check,remember the power saving modes will run it a almost stock.clocks when idle,and full speed under load

    Check in BIOS to see if oc settings have been applied,if not its probably a low or flat cmos battery,try pressing alt and f12 to flash both BIOS chips with same BIOS version,press them at gigabyte splash screen

    I am right clicking on my computer and clicking on properties and that shows me that it is still clocked at stock speeds. I haven't thought about the battery being flat... I will check it when I have time and get back to you. Thanks again.
