My system didn't come with a jumper and this mother board doesn't have a battery. Would it work if I use a screw driver to complete the circuit? And lastly how long to reset for this mother board I've found second hand information but nothing concrete some say 5sec some say 15secs. I'll try it tonight when I get home and I'll post the results 10 pm cst. Give or take a few minutes. Thanks for the info.

OK thanks for reminding me to reset my CMOS not completely sure it will fix my problem but it did identify something that needed fixed. Before I reset my cmos in cpu-z my multiplier was set to (7-21.5) which means if it went to 21.5 it would put my cpu at about 5.0mghz which is too high. After resetting my cmos my multiplier has returned to (7-19.5) and now i can get a much more consistent overclock. I'm going to do some slow overclocking tonight and I will post the results later tonight or tomorrow and maybe we can mark this as solved. Thanks again remember my name i will be asking for advice in the future as i constantly trying to upgrade. Also on a side note when I do get my upgraded processor I am going to take my old computer parts and build a computer for some kid that can't afford one and pass on the joy of computing. If you know some kid that might benefit from a second hand computer please send me a message. Thanks again.

ok i reset my cmos and all is good so far. I OC my computer to 4100mhz and ran a test then gamed for about 3 hours with no problems. Tomorrow going to go to 4.2mghz where if it is stable i will probably stop there. Thanks again for all your help. I guess this post is solved .
