PC Clock


Changed the BIOS lithium cell in my main PC tonight as the clock had started to drift by about 10 seconds per hour. With this amount of drift, WSPR worked for about 15 minutes and then received nothing until About Time adjusted the time on the hour.
The voltage of the cell was about 3.1 when I took it out.



The CPU (Phenom II X4 955) isn't officially supported by Asus with this motherboard (this is an AM2+ board so has some support for the newer AM3 CPUs but uses DDR2 RAM). Even with the newest BIOS version I still get this message.
