Default bios question...

I have an optimization mode option in my bios and there are 3 settings...

normal...
turbo 1...
turbo 2...

I have it on normal and have my processor OCed about 25%, are the turbo modes OCable or will my bios just tell me "failure due to overclocking", I don't really mind, my bios has a nice voice and never get's rude or beligerent...

Im guessing the turbo modes are preset OC modes. You could always make a note of your OC settings, and then give the other modes a try. If it goes wrong, then you can reset the BIOS.

the OC settings are simply, just the fsb, I can't adust my memory's fsb in any way, though I have a couple options with the timings...

I guess I'll try booting in turbo 1 not OCed and check what speed it boots up at, and then try the same with turbo 2...

then I'll try OCing with each on, then post the results in case someone else has the same bios (award1012)...
