Yeah just to be safe unplug the power, although I never do. But yes I looked at a pic of your board and that is the right jumper that you explained. The layout on your board is a little different than I'm used to seeing.

The other option would be to just take the battery out for a minute and put it back in. But thats not the proper way to reset CMOS.

Yes that's the correct jumper and like Fanatic stated you can also remove the battery which is a little bit more of a pain but easier to find. If that doesn't work then you have a more serious problem.

Hrm try removing the battery for a little while. What you just did definately should have worked but it's worth a try. It's possible that you killed it but I would be suprised because that's not a very high OC. You did apply thermal paste correct? Unlike P4's, Xp's don't have heat protection.

Unplug the power, take the cmos battery out and let it sit for a few minutes....put the battery back in and fire it up....should work unless the board is fried...I doubt your cpu is fried....Worst case...you have to rma it...I rma'd my infinity...just a hassle is all!!!!

Could be a mobo problem....You may wanna try disconnecting the power to the mobo...pull the atx connector out and let it sit for a bit...then try it again...

I assume since you checked your temps you got it running??????

 

Edit....forget it I failed to read your edit...lol....glad it is running.....reboot and set to optimal setting and then reboot....you will have to go back and set the bios up again...and don't worry about the beep....my infinity has never beeped!!!!!!

Cool glad we could help. Your northbridge normally will feel fairly hot with the stock heatsink. If poke around in your bios you should find your temps.
