    what are you trying to clock, cpu or gpu?
    More importantly, what make is the comp, or is it a home brew job? Most bought ones have partially disabled BIOS to stop clocking

    Are you clocking through BIOs or software?

    I was just about to tell you what was wrong, but considering the comment in another thread am withdrawing from this thread.
