Default Re: Underclocking a CPU (you saw this right)

I just got the scare of my life...

I ran that program you linked me to Amish Kid, haha, and I found the chipset name which it asked to do, and said to apply it.

I heard a beep, and the mouse froze...

I reset, nothing, "no input signal". It had died...

I was trying to find the manual to find what the error 6.6 meant, but thats normal I've found now, yet, nothing was coming up on screen.

I reset the Cmos though, and YES, it worked!!!

I'm NOT trying that again...

Strangley though, MSN doesn't work now, and AVG is grey in the task bar...no idea what that means. Plus, the computer wanted to find drivers for a new hardware...

The time and date has been reset. You'll need to readjust it.

Default Re: Underclocking a CPU (you saw this right)

usually the multiplier is locked. But u should be able to change the fsb Atleast I can make it anything between 100 and 400 if I remember correctly, default being 200. Ohh, and I think FSB is the same thing as bus speed.

Hmm, I might have a go with the VCore with my cpu, maybe I can bring the temps down a little.

edit: omg, my VCore doesn't like being changed. It was running at 1.6, so I went to the bios and chose 1.585 or something like that. But now it's running at like 1.64 Might be best if I'd just leave it on 'auto'

I'm running on completly the lowest settings the bios allowed. It had limits like (minium allowed, 200), so thats all I could put, and the voltages, there were only selection boxes, with about 6 listed, and the lowest were already running.

Well it killed mine, and I'm pretty sure I got the right ICS number, because it didn't find it automatically

Wow that is weird, clockgen is usually a good program to use for windows overclocking.
