Hi, last night I had a funny 5 minutes and decided to look at overclocking my processor. I have an MSI P965 Neo2 motherboard and the Intel E6600 and 2gb DDR2 ram. The mobo came with a software utility called Core (Core Cell I think, not in front of my PC) which claims to 'Automatically' overclock my processor. What it does is raise the FSB and other settings to define the best overclock. So rather foolishly I clicked 'auto' and within 20 seconds my PC crashed. When the PC rebooted an alarm was going off (the alarm was part of the 'Core' application) so I hurriedly uninstalled the application, rebooted a couple of times and everything seems fine.
My question though is how do I know that my key settings are back to what they were. Can anyone post what my voltages and fsb should be set to as standard.
I have something called PC Wizard which gives me system info and it tells me what my settings are set to now, but I am not sure what they were to start with. Your Intel link shows me some information and I am not sure which are the correct settings I will need to check, please advise.
It was running OK and yes cpu-z did say I was running at 2565 mhz - phew my first overclock! But I still changed it back to default as I would prefer to do things in a more controlled way than using the 'core cell' software. It was an interesting experience :) and I think I will do a bit more research and start again.
