tundra Posted October 13, 2004 Posted October 13, 2004 Hi Guys, I've been around the computer scene for many years, but am a noob to this cool forum, AMD64's and DFI! I just purchased the rig in my sig, and flashed my bios to the 9/14 revision by Oskar. Upon booting the system and leaving all settings on auto, the mobo seems to recognize my cpu as a mobile and clocks it to 800MHz x 4, 1.1V cpu core :eek: Being a dummy, I had no clue this was happening until after I installed windows, all drivers, and even ran a quick 3DMark2001 SE benchmark. My score was 11,500 so I knew something was very wrong. So I downloaded CPU-Z and found that my FSB and multiplier were all hosed.... Does anyone think I did any damage by running the processor at this incorrect speed and voltage? p.s. Immediately after finding this out, I quickly went into the bios and changed the mutiplier to 10x, FSB stayed at 200, CPU Vcore was set to 1.5V. Did a quick boot up, and CPU-Z showed my system MHz to be 2000 (phew). Ran 3DMark01 with totally stock settings and got a 22,300 (yay!) Are there any other settings I'm missing to run my cpu safetly?
