I am getting a cpu warning at boot , it says running in safe mode and to try resetting the cpu frequency in the bios . this is a recently biult machine . cpu frequency is set at 200 mhz in bios with options for setting in single steps up to 300 mhz
clock ratio is set to auto , with manual options starting at 5x in steps 5.5x and 6x etc up to a max of 12.5x the documentation with the CPU was all in english eccept for the bios settings that was in french .I am not looking to overclock or anything , but does anyone know the best reccomended settings for this CPU . without frying it .
I have tried the bios safe settings but then my raid array doesnt function properly . my motherboard is a gigabyte am2 and is compatable with the processor. the pc starts ok if I go beyond the warning and the processor info appears correct according to windows. , I think that the bios is not correctly detecting the correct settings , the multiplier setting (ratio) is on auto , I would like to know the correct setting so I can manually set it . I think this is where the problem is . bios are up to date , and correct for my setup according to gigabyte. thanks for all replies so far.
I have the brisbane chip according to the spec sheet 2500mhz the settings go up to 12.5x but are set on auto at the moment . is it safe for me to manually set this . and is it risky to go to 12.5x or should I try a lower setting . thanks
