windows+R type msconfig enter
boot tab - > tick Safe boot -> apply

BUT how can I get the dos without windows for memtest :/

The ram test was fine.. 0 Error!
What is the next step, what should I test or change? Any idea? Thx!

Have you tried doing the oc manually (XMP) and changing the multiplier only (not fiddling with voltage or bus speeds)?
I noticed that using the OC easy mode gave me unstable system, so I went manually.

Now I do the OC (cpu) without any volt change.
Full default except:
"CPU level up " changed 4.2 from auto
"Ai overclock Tuner" to X.M.P
XMP DDR3 -2000 9-10-9-27-2N 1.65 V
Maximum Turbo Ratio 42

I dont know the CPU LVL UP change any voltage or not, but if I'm right you say that I should change manually the ratio to 42
(ram stay at XMP ) and that is all? May be I misunderstand you please correct me.

ok, so restarted my pc just to check:
CPU: Auto
AI Overclock tuner: X.M.P.
BCLK/PCIE freq: 100
Max. turbo ratio setting: 42
Memory freq: DDR3-1600

I didn't touch the rest. Did the intel burn tests and is stable. Idle at 1.6Ghz, load at 4.2Ghz. I could go higher but meh.

So I got my new bios chip but still no joy. If I can recap -

1. Had a stable system to start with. Running bios version 0402.
2. Began getting power supply surge mesages at boot up.
3. Despite those messages. I'd boot through to Windows and my system was still stable. Used it this way for a few weeks.
4. Decided to try a bios upgrade.
5. Bricked. Nothing displays on the screen at boot time, no beeps (even with everything removed) and instead it briefly displays an error code of 61, shuts down and then restarts. Does this over and over.
6. Tried clearing the CMOS using both the jumper method and the switch on the back of the motherboard.
7. Per suggestion here, bought a new bios chip from bios depot and requested version 0402. It came today and the static bag it was in had a sticker on it saying 0402. Assume it is 0402 then.
8. Put new bios chip in. No change. Same as step 5.

Any ideas? Maybe my power supply has crapped out, but it just seems weird that this whole incident was triggered by me trying a bios upgrade. I assumed the new bios chip would fix it.

When it boots up, only the CPU led in the bank of 4 LEDs near the power connector lights up. Don't know what the significance of this is.


What a saga. I replaced my power supply and all is well. Stupid me: Given the surge warnings I was getting from the motherboard before I tried the BIOS upgrade, the problem clearly was the power supply. All is good then. Damn it though, you don't expect a Corsair AX750 to fail within 9 months. Will RMA it. I replaced it with a Silvertstone STF75-P.

Somebody knows if between bios 3203/3501 and 3603 have any voltage issues on ivy cpus?? needing more voltage to be stable for example in one of those 3 bioses??

I've enabled CPU Level Up (at 4.6GHz) and everything is stable, but my core voltage as displayed by CPU-z is not dropping at lower core speeds. It always stays around 1.344v.
The OP states that it is possible to have core voltage drop down when using CPU Level Up, and lists these as the instructions:
To enable voltage drop on idle:
* Go under Digi+ VRM/POWER Control
--- set VCore Load-line Calibration to 75% or 100% and VCore Phase Control to Optimized
* Go back to main menu
--- set CPU Voltage to Offset Mode
However, if I set VCore Phase Control to Optimized and then set CPU Voltage to Offset Mode, I get a core voltage of 1.47v in CPU-z. Clearly that is too much, so what can I do to get my max core voltage down to around 1.3v and my idle clocks voltage down to around 1.00v?

So nobody knows the answer to this?

FWIW I overclocked my i5 2500K to 4.2ghz using the same method and my idle voltage is 1.368v. However I set the VCore Load-line Calibration to 50% which is inline with the recommendation given in the BIOS program for my overclock speed. I've never tested what it rises to under load. When I using my computer as normal I often see it sitting at 1.376v.

Is idle voltage what you see in CPU-Z when you have nothing else but CPU-Z running or is there some other way to measure it?

Dunno if any of this helps. Just a comparison really with someone else who has followed the same overclock method.
