hi, i have a msi b85m-g motherboard, its been working great so far until this morning when i booted it up, i got a message saying my overclock has failed and to press F1 for setup and F2 for default values.i selected F2 and set back to default, now my pc boots up fine but i cant play any game on my pc anymore, anything i try to play gets very laggy and slow.i went from getting 80 fps on high settings to only geting 20 fps and alot of studdering.
i went into my bios settings and tried to change the oc settings, but my cpu frequency option is grayed out and wont let me edit the oc setting.
what can i do to get my pc back to normal speeds?
how do i overclock the motherboard?
