    Question Overclocking an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3 GHz on a GigaByte GA-G31M-ES2L

    Hello overclockers !


    As I work as software engeener, I'm not well experienced in overclocking hardware , so that I'd like you to advise me about my current configuration.

    I read many threads, especially this one (very similar to my configuration) which already helped me a lot to understand the manipulations to do...

    As I rebooted my PC (it auto-rebooted one more time) :

    1. CPU-Z (as Everest also) told me my CPU speed was still 3.0 GHz (instead of the 3.6 GHz expected value) :





    2. The memory also decreased to 2.8 Gb instead of 3.3 Gb (ProcessExplorer as Windows XP Info window) :






    Some of the modifications (green) I made have been changed (red) by the PC (for they were probably incompatible). Here are the snapshots of my BIOS configuration after the reboot :








    Here are the other hardware specifications brought by CPU-Z :










    I'm sure the solution is quite simple, but I don't have enough knowledge to find it

    Thank you for your help !!!

    BeLO, your post got stuck in our spam filter, which I just released. The image you posted was broken, so I removed that from your post. You will need to add that back in.

    Yes, indeed...
    So I'm gonna pass my images in an OCR

    Then I'll bring only textual information in my next post.

    Thanks for your reply !
