    By the title you can already say n00b. But I just got Crysis Warhead and My cpu is bottlenecking my card and I want to play it on high settings, well I am playing it on the low settings with the hardware in my specs. So I went into the BIOS and tried to OC.Now I was setting my CPU to 1.23v and to 2.2GHz to start off with and to see if it worked or not. And when I started my comp back up it had all this shit and then I had to clear my cmos. So could y'all give me some tips to do so I can have my CPU to at least 2.6Ghz? I have a Pheonix Bios, just thought that might help. Thanks.

    AMD cpus arent real good overclockers to begin with, but i would suggest making your nb(or G(
    MCH)) is +1 (or 2 if it needs more) also, keep your ram divider set at 2, otherwise it will try to overclock to an extreme amount to keep up with cpu overclock, and therefor not work.
    Castiel says thanks.
