965P DS3 v3.3 Wont Keep overclock

Hi, I've got the above mobo running an E7300 which runs stock at 10x266. I have the latest F14 Bios. With my previous E4300 chip (and until very recently with this one) I have simply enabled manual settings & upped the FSB by a bit to get a very stable 10-15% overclock - not touched voltages etc.
Problem is that now, I do all this, save the settings in the Bios but when it reboots, it forgets the new settings and reverts to 10x266. I cleared the CMOS and then tried again, it remembered my overclock settings for its first 5 or 6 boots but has once again reverted to 10x266. I don't want to have to keep clearing CMOS - Do any of you lot know why my M/B wont remember its settings ? Many Thanks......

Four bios versions which do I flash?

F15q and F15o are BETA versions.
Meaning in actuality, they use the consumer as a guinea pig, and see what the results are. Then they might 'tweak it', and call it good.
Becomes an Alpha version then.

['Tweak it'.
Work the bugs out that have been found by the consumer]

My bad. Let me use the 'prose' they use,

"What is BETA?
BETA describes a new version that is reliable yet may not include all the features of the final product. During this phase we are previewing new features and gathering customer input to insure our product provides the best experience possible."

Moving on....

Next, the logical thought is; to download the Latest version.
The thinking is that the latest version has all the bugs worked out.

However this may be a fallacy for your particular motherboard.
The latest version may not work.
Makes you feel all warm, and fuzzy inside, huh? (NOT)

The procedure to use when updating BIOS, and using any version; is to make sure you keep a copy of the old one.
When upgrading, you will be asked if you wish to make a copy, of the old BIOS program.

YES, is the answer.

Something happens with the new version, you have the old version to revert back to; and at least be able to use your motherboard.
No BIOS? Might as well use the mobo for a Frisbee.

So,......looking at the different versions that you see, look at each one's date.

F5 is 03/28/2012. March 28, 2012
Indicates Enhanced overclocking capability.

What does F6 do, that came out April 26, 2012?
1) Improved Processor overclocking, using a processor based on the Sandy Bridge Core,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge

2) Brings support for using an Intel Xeon processor.

Now look at the next version, F7.

All the improvements you see listed for each version, are culminated in the newest version,

F14.

That is, the newest version that has proved to be stable.
Supposedly the 'bugs' are worked out.

The other two versions F15o and F15q, again; are BETA versions.
Should ONLY be used by those who have a lot of experience, and know what to do if it fails.

So this leaves us with F14.
HOWEVER again, make SURE you make a copy of the old BIOS version.
When updating you will be asked.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(ALSO, if your power goes out in the middle of a BIOS update, kiss the motherboard goodbye; unless you made a copy of the existing BIOS version.

This is why I, and others state; that unless there is a definite reason to upgrade the BIOS program on your computer -> DON'T)

Foxconn 945G7MA-8EKRS2 Motherboard will not post with pentium d cpu ,i have even updated with the lates bios flash,


Good day,
According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest
4BFF1P56 No Version 4BFF1P40
Have you tried installing the no version bios? In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference.
945G7MA-8EKRS2 945G7MA-8EKRS2H
Update at your own risk..
hope this helps, thanks for posting.

Mobo Compatibility and tech/spec variations


All Asus P5GC-MX/1333 mobos are "X-series" boards.  

If you put higher speed ram on that mobo, it will just run the ram at lower speeds.

The board will not take 1333 speed DDR3, because it is only DDR2 compatible.

OVerclocking is complicated and risky, here is neither the place to teach or learn overclocking.

Some newer core 2 chips will automatically overclock, when all but 1 core is in hibernation (which will never happen if you are using vista). Other than that overclocking involves setting the bios to increase the memory buss speed, as well as slightly increasing the cpu and ram voltages as needed for stability. There is a great risk associated with manually overclocking and adjusting voltages, and should not be attempted by beginners on machines they value.

Overclocking locked on 945gct-m2 mobo


There is no overclocking settings for this motherboard, the CPU speeds and core settings are automatically determined. You may be able to find a modified bios somewhere, but i would strongly suggest this not be done. A bad bios, or bad flash can essentially turn the motherboard into an expensive paperweight.

ADA3700AEP5AP 3700 Clawhammer wont boot


I believe that it should work with that chip. If you have the manual for the MoBo try resetting the cmos on the board. That should put every thing back to its defaults. It is posable that it is trying to run it at the wrong voltage.

Strangest Overclock Failure Problem Ever


Understand that not all computers can be overclocked. For one, laptops are pretty much out of the question. Also, any OEM (original equipment manufacturer) computer, such as a Dell, HP or E-machine, will be virtually impossible to overclock, so your best bet for overclocking is to purchase or build a custom system, but keep in mind that some motherboards can't be used to overclock. Now let's begin.

The BIOS. Overclocking is best done in the computer’s BIOS. There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier CPU Clock Ratio
