new computer was overclocked, now not so much - little help please?
So I ran a bios update on my new machine (uses the sabertooth z77 motherboard). And in doing so, inadvertently lost the overclock settings that the guys at PC Specialist had entered.
I'm running the 3.5Ghz 2770 i7 processor which was overclocked to 4600. The processor was showing as 4600 in 3dmark11 prior to the bios update (which I did as my score seemed a little odd compared to a number of other folk) and now it's actually only showing as 3400.
Anybody know what the settings should be? (i.e. anyone with the overclocked new 3rd gen i7 processor overclocked to 4.6Ghz on an asus motherboard) I've dropped the guys at PCs a message about it as well, I should've checked if they'd made an actual profile before doing the Bios Update and this wouldn't have happened
Thanks to anyone that helps!
Not well up on OC'ing but i am pretty sure that updating the bios will have lost your stored OC settings i think you should be able to get them by logging into your account on the main website and you may find that yours has different settings to other peoples so if you don't find them on your account then you should get intouch with PCS on monday and they will get you sorted.
definitely nothing from my account in the website itself sadly, very frustrating that there wasn't a pre saved profile on the mobo, but i assume that's not really doable if you don't opt for having a machine with windows preinstalled...
