Default Re: Some fun with my E4300 and 965P-DS3

Ok guys, here's a question. I just put together a computer today with an E4300 and the gigabyte 965P-S3. I started overclocking it and it was doing fine. I had it up to 333x9 stock voltage no problems. Then I decided to update the bios because the one it came with was from january. So I upgraded to the newest one (July 6, 2007) and now it won't overclock worth crap. Like 250x9 gets to the windows loading screen but then locks up.

I totally cleared the CMOS and redid all my settings but it still does this. What's the deal? I'm going to try the bios before that one, see if it's any better. If not, I'm going back to the original one it came with.

EDIT: Ok it looks like the new bios sucks....I went to the one before the newest one (F10) and it's overclocking just like the original one was. Sweet.
