Fellow Techies,

I was wondering if someone would be so kind to tell me how to reset my Bios on my muda board(Asus P5q Pro Turbo). For some odd reason I can't find any jumpers labeled CMOS, am I missing somethin or is it labeled something different? I've pulled the CMOS battery out but that's quite a pain, hopefully someone knows an easier way. Thanks in advance!

I had a hunch but wasn't sure if the RTC RAM jumper was it. Thanks for confirming!

FWIW: RTC stands for Real Time Clock, another name for the CMOS, used by some. I've only previously seen it used ICW CMOS batteries.

Intel E5200 @3.7GHz


Those 50% overclocks aren't that stable

:thumbsup:

I got mine up to 48% but didn't know enough to tweak it right and got tired of clearing cmos and reentering all my custom settings in bios.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
