    HAY GUYS...

    Wondering what the best setup for this mobo/processor would be. I'm only able to change a few of the settings in the BIOS.

    The ones I can change are:

    CPU Frequency
    Overclocking Frequency
    and CPU/DRAM Frequency Ratio


    What would the best settings be? I've tried playing around with it some and it works fine unless I go too high with any of the settings, then it hangs up before it boots to windows.

    Are there any programs I can run in windows to change these settings as well as the ones that are not editable in the BIOS settings screen?

    TIA..

    That motherboard isn't good for anything, especially overclocking. The STOP screen or hanging before Windows fully boots means that you overclocked too much, bring it down 1MHz each time until you find you "island of stability." Make sure you keep track of CPU temperature.

    Out of those 3, which would be the best to have cranked up?

    I want a new MB... :wtc:

    Since you're overclocking, I would guess "overclocking frequency," but keep in mind that it's just a guess.
