Its because the 'Optimal' Setting is MORE UNSTABLE than the 'Performance' setting (Black Ops hangs, speakers play a high voltage electricity sound), but the performance setting is stable but sometimes give me an 'Overclocking failed' message in BIOS.
So what i did is load default settings, then i set the OC to Manual, leaving everything to AUTO but i changed the multiplier to 38x so that i would get 3.8ghz. Is this alright?

Guys!

I am getting this problem again. But this time, it happens when i am playing BF3 instead of Black Ops. It normally happens after i play for a few hours. The temps are all okay, always below 60'C on the stock cooler for the CPU and GFX .

The screen and PC basically hangs and there is a very loud "buzzing noise that sounds like high voltage electricity". The game sounds do not loop. Just this high frequency buzzing noise with the whole PC hanging. I just have to force restart and continue gaming as per normal.

In event viewer, i see Event 41, Kernal-Power. "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly." Not really helpful, just telling me that there was a force restart.

Rig details are in my sig. Any ideas what could be wrong?

ie. using it over ventrillo for BF3, etc.?

I think you can, you just need to connect it.
At least I could stream music from PC to my phone, so I don't see problem.

Hello, I finished my build a while back but have been going back and forth about how to set up my hard drives etc. I think I must first note that I am a novice hardware enthusiast and can do quite a bit but I'm still a long ways away from being good at this. Originally I Installed an OCZ 60 GB SSD drive for my OS and 1 WD Black 1 TB (32 mb cache). I got sick of having to constantly move files around to keep storage open on the SSD and because my computer is built only for gaming (own an ASUS laptop for work), I deleted everything and started from scratch. This time I decided to go with 2 WD black 1 TB drives each set to RAID 0 and the SSD just as a drive for whatever game I was playing the most (when SSD drives evolve I will go for an OS drive but too annoying for me). I think I made the mistake of going the easy route though and I used Marvell's 3.0 6 GB/s SATA Navy Blue connectors and Drive Expert to set up the Raid 0, I hooked the SSD up to 1 of the 2 Intel 3.0 6 GB/s SATA mobo connectors to work as an independent drive. Works ok, I get decent read/write speeds but I just feel like I should have used Intel's 3 GB/s SATA connectors just because 1 WD Black 1 TB 7200 RPM HDD isn't going to exceed the 3 GB/s. I think my boot time is slow and I am also dealing with the famous post boot issue (I'm going to continue dealing with it now, until I have everything the way I want , then if it still exists I will worry about that issue). I wanted to disable Marvell's eSATA port as well and the two Marvell SATA 3.0 6 GB/s ports for now unless I need them in the future because I believe they slow down my boot time. This is a very small problem but is still bugging me. This may be a very stupid question but if I wanted to switch to the Intel ports and moved the SATA plugs from the Marvell STAT 3.0 6 GB/s NAVY BLUE connectors to the Intel 3 GB/s SATA connectors would I have to wipe the drives and re-install windows as well and mess with a bunch of RAID configurations?

In short, is it worth it? If I can do this I would be left with 2 Marvell 6 GB/s SATA ports for future use (disabled for now to boot faster) 1 Intel 6 GB/s SATA port for my docking bay on my tower, 1 Intel 6 GB/s SATA port for SSD drive, 2 Intel 3 GB/s SATA ports set up with the Raid 0, and 2 more Intel 3 GB/s ports for whatever (probably 1 DVD Writer and 1 spare). I will also disable Marvell's eSATA port because I don't use it and use a firewire port for WD 1 TB external used for backups (speed not too important but I do always strive for the best). I confused myself typing this, so any help is greatly appreciated. Below is my current build;

ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Hey all, I discovered another issue with the 0902 BIOS version. Apart from the BIOS reading CPU temps 10 degrees lower than they actually are, sometimes when the PC shuts down, the active LEDs on the mobo (such as the TPU LED) and the light on my Razer Abysuss stay on. I know that this happens when I put the computer to sleep but it's annyoing when I shut the PC down and some lights stay on. Anyone else having this issue with 0902?

Sounds like you have the USB charging feature enabled.

i didn't think about it at the time but when i got my P8Z68-V Pro board, the box wasn't sealed, like a piece of tape on one of the edges. Everything looks ok but just wondering if the board comes like this?

Well, I would refuse to accept it, the box need to be closed and sealed. Probably you got a repaired board, or one with a minor fault which could not be detected by a check, or a demonstration board.
