I have a Phenom II X4 940 BE and i wanted to OC it. After adjusting the CPU multiplier (for example 16x) the system reboots, passes POST then it hangs and gives me a blank screen after the "verifying DMI pool data" stage. And if i restart, it just doesnt POST at all and i have to clear the CMOS.

I also tried adjusting the multiplier to 15x (which takes the CPU to its original speed 15x200=3000MHz) to see if it's something with the cpu, and it still gave me the same result as above. It seems that i can only set the multiplier to "auto", although i havent tried setting it below 15x.

Any advice ?

The promblem is the board wont boot with any manual multiplier settings except "auto", even if i set it to 15x, which is the default multiplier value, it still woont boot.

And the gay part is, i could OC by changing the multiplier when i was using X2 7750 on this board before i upgraded to X4 940.
