I hope you're not talking about the ClearCMOS jumper? If you boot up with the jumper in the wrong position, you can fry the motherboard.

I've gotta ask...do you have any idea what you're doing? Have you ever overclocked an AMD system before? Where did you read that a jumper has to be changed to be able to overclock?

"i did not remove the clear jumper infact on this board geforece 8200 i dont think there is one"

There's always a clear CMOS jumper.

Post the make/model of your board & I'll have a look at the manual. While I'm asking, what speed RAM do you have & how much did you wanna overclock your 9500? It is a 9500, right, not a 9550?

"yes it is a 9500"

The 9500 is one of the "defective" Phenoms, I'm surprised they're even available anymore. The ones with 50 in the model number (9550, 9650, etc) are the fixed versions.

"the board isa geforce 8200"

No, the chipset used on the board is a GeForce 8200. There are dozens of boards that use that chip. If you want my help, I'll need to know the manufacturer (Asus, Biostar, ECS, Gigabyte, MSI, etc) & the model number. Once I get a look at the manual, I'll be able to find what jumper you're talking about. See if you can find it on this list of 13 GeForce 8200 boards:

"socket am2+ 1066 mhz , the ram is 800mhz dual channel ddr2"

Many problems with your description. 1066MHz is max supported RAM speed. Dual channel is a feature of the board, not the RAM & DDR2-800 is the wrong RAM for a Phenom. It will work, but you'll take a performance hit. DDR2-1066 is what you should have gotten.

Wasn't AMD allowing allowing people to send the 00 versions in for exchange for the 50 versions? Because i knew a guy that had a problem with his 9600 version and sent it back to AMD and AMD gave him a 9650 version in exchange.

If it's broke, then blow that sucka up!

"...i did not know that needed 1066mhz"

Always a good idea to do your homework.

Apparently have to be a registered user to get a copy of the motherboard manual?

"i did not know that needed 1066mhz"

It doesn't "need" it, but it would perform better with it. DDR2-800 will hold things back a bit.

"Apparently have to be a registered user to get a copy of the motherboard manual?"

I never heard of that before. I generally won't buy a board without looking at the manual 1st. I guess I can scratch XFX off my list ;-)
