Default Adjusting Motherboard Jumpers

Ok, i know ive asked a question similar to this, but this is just to make sure. I currently have a GATEWAY, and i want to override the BIOS and Overclock. Right now, jumper settings are on 1-2 which is factory set, and 2-3 is called config and no jumper is RCVRY. AMD ZEN told me to put it on 2-3, . What do i do after that. Do i leave it on that forever. And is there ANY chance this will screw up my comp

Default Re: Adjusting Motherboard Jumpers

Normally on one of the panels of your PC there should be a layout of your jumper configuration. If it doesn't work or heats up too much, you can just set it back.
Normally if you have jumper settings, one of them is the multiplier. For example if you have a 866 Mhz system and a 133 Mhz bus, then you would have a 6.5 multiplier. You could have the possibility of changing it to 7 to overclock your PC to 933 Mhz. The label which is usually printed or on a glued paper will show you exactly where the jumpers are and changing the setting will do what.
