Need BIOS advice...

Recommended Posts

Hey all. My chipset fan died a few days ago, and I replaced it with a Vantec Iceburq fan from newegg. For some strange reason, my BIOS reset when I did this, so I need to redo them all.


Can anyone provide a link to some pictures or a list of good BIOS settings for my system? My computer specs are in my sig.


I'm using the 6/23 BIOS, and I would like my CPU fairly overclocked (stock 2.2Ghz, O/C at 2.5Ghz or so), and memory as well.


I don't know much about BIOS settings, so a list or some pictures that would work with my system would be great.

A good resource for OC settings is the overclocking Database. It is full of tested stable settings for all kinds of setups. Browse through it and see if any of them are close to your system specs.
