my conf.:\n\nn7-s 2.0\ntbred 1700+ + silent breeze I & arctic silver III\nBeQuiet 350W PSU\n\n\ni usually run it at 1GHz(6.5×166)@1.2V, but when i need something done, i run\nit at 2166(2700+)@1.625V ...\n\nwhen i first overclocked it this hi, last year (when i still had the enermax\n350W psu), i had a problem that the mb would shut down the system before it\nreached 70°C although the system was perfectly stable, tested with prime95 and\nalthough the overtemp protect in bios was set to 85 in the softmenu and to\ndisable in the advanced setting (?? why is this setting in two places and can\nbe set to different things at these two places ??), so i increased this setting\nto 100°C and the mb stopped shutting down the system even when the CPU reached\n80°C (and was still perfectly stable even though the AC voltage was under 190V\nat the time&place, go enermax go ! :))\n\n\nin the meantime i updated the bios, and changed the psu (i was installing two\nnew harddrives and accidentaly made a short circuit on the molex, and instead\nof shutting down, the enermax melted the wires to the molex and died, _big_\ndissapointment) so now i have the bequiet (it's quieter then the enermax but\nalso a lot hotter, and the 12V is 11.79V at full load at 2166MHz... again a\ndissapointment, and it costs more than the enermax :/ )\n\n\nanyways now i need to get 'something done' (render some animations) as soon as\npossible, so i raised the clock again and the mb again shuts down the system at\n68 degrees (celsius), but the overtemp protect option in bios is set to 90°C\nand that is now the highest available value (no more 100°C) so i now have no\nmore options in the bios to prevent the mb from shutting down my system, i\ntried updating to the latest bios but still the same ...\n\nin the manual it states that the overtemp protection option should have the\nvalue od 100°C and also the option to disable the overtemp protection, but i\ndon't have/see those options so i guess they were removed in newer bioses (why\n???) ...\n\nso my question, finaly :) is there a solution to my problem (turning of the\ndamn illworking overtemp protection) other than returning to an older bios (if\nthat is the problem) ?\n\nhow good is the abit tech support, should i try and ask at the support page ?
