What is a DEC number?

Recommended Posts

I just recently lurched through my first computer build. In my Award BIOS, when I was ready to insert manual values for CPU:DRAM frequency settings, there was a field for keying in a "DEC number". Google didn't help me in getting an explanation. Hoping someone here will donate their time to educate me or perhaps direct me to a link where I can learn about it.The motherboard is a Soyo and the processor is a Pentium4, 2.4 GHz.....if that is helpful. Thanks.Mark

Just type in the number you want, like 133 etc. Use the top row numbers just in case num lock (key pad) isn't activated.DEC=decimal??

It is used for overclocking. It allows you to change your CPU clock speed.

Thanks for the reply Gus K.Thanks for clearing it up for me, STRYDER; exactly what I was trying to find out. Although the mainboard manual has a lot to say about over clocking, it never mentioned this DEC field.Much obliged to both of you.Mark
