I'm running an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (3 Ghz) on a Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 mobo. When I manually set the timing and multiplier to 200Mhz at 15x the BIOS POST claims I am overclocking. Should I ignore this warning? I only ask because I read that setting the speed manually can prevent system slow downs which can be caused by using "Auto" settings. I'm not trying to OC my machine, I just want stability that "Auto" settings may not provide.

When you manually set it to what the default settings are anyway, there's no actual change made to the system. The BIOS is probably just sensing that it's not in "auto mode" or whatever. I wouldn't worry about it. Verify that your voltages and CPU temperatures are where they're supposed to be though.

Can you describe the slow-downs that occur when you use Auto settings? Are you referring to the Cool 'n Quiet feature that lowers the CPU speed when you don't need the CPU to be running at 3.0GHz?

Sometimes during normal use I notice a bit of system slowdown then it goes back to normal after a few moments. It doesn't happen often but when it does it's annoying. I'm not starting or running extra programs when this happens. The article I read stated that it may be windows interfering with the BIOS settings to regulate heat or other such things. I don't know the absolute truth to this so I figured I'd ask.
