So I just put a new phenom into my system (9850 BE), and when I go to overclock the CPU, the mobo won't post unless I reset the CMOS. I have 4 gigs of 800 mhz memory, 4 sticks, each at 1 gigabyte. Each DIMM is full.


There is a new bios update available, but I don't know how to flash the bios, and yeah. Not sure if it will do anything.



Anyone have any ideas? I'm thinking even if I can't get it to post, I can always OC with software, even though that's less stable.

Would it overclock before you got the 9850? I'd recommend updating the BIOS, if it's a newer motherboard, 1-2 years old, it's generally easy to flash the bios, many allow you to do it with a flash drive or CD.
