  • Stupid move.

    Hey guys. I was playing around with my asus overclocking feature & i screwed up. Im not really sure what happened but this is what i did. I jacked the ghz to 2.6, then i was messing with the processor voltage & i think i turned it down to low, lol i dont know why io was even messing with it.

    If u look at the recent threds here ull see i just put this system together, i had problems getting to boot up but i finally got it. the thing just rocks man ive never had a computer so bad ass. Anyway when the system crashed i panicked & pulled the processor out, when i put it back i bent some pins & screwed it up.

    I have two questions first is i had a 3500 venice core processor, I just ordered a 3800San Diago core this time, will i see a differance?

    Next i cant aford another mistake like that but i build race engines for a living & i just cant stop from trying to hotrod something so can u guys give me the lowdown on overclocking. Thx. Heres my comp specs.

    500w p/s

    amd 3800 processor
    2 gigs OCZ ram ddr400
    GEForce 6800 pci-e

    Thx in advance guys.

    If you did not break any pins they can be straitened out. It happened to me and I have had no problems. I have the same chip. You just have to careful and make sure they are lined up perfectly.
