p8p67 + 2600k issues

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi, i've been reading forums on this site for years, but this is the first time ive had to post, so new user here.. hope this is the appropriate area..

i recently built a new rig, see sig for specs and i am having a few issues i was hoping for some help with.

the first being updating the bios. when i attempt to update with asus' most recent bios from their support page, i am told that it is not a "valid uefi bios" or something similar (my apologies, i am not at my machine at the moment). i then tried to update it using asus' gui within windows - same error.

any help would be appreciated!

other problem, and the larger of the two is overclocking.

it will _not_ overclock. i am not new to overclocking, quite familiar, actually.

after doing a fair amount of reading, i was advised to disable any energy saving functions so that the oc would carry to windows.

everything i have done so far (including following all of the steps here http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...7-overclocking ) results in the same outcome - boot to windows, and if it doesn't crash and restart, it posts the stock clock.

thanks in advance for any assistance and please let me know if you need any additional info or if these issues are already covered in another thread

If you're saying it shows stock clocks in Windows, it's supposed to Windows doesn't see the turbo ratio. If you have set the CPU ratio to your desired OC it won't work, you have to set the OC with Turbo ratio.

From my experience with the p8p67 motherboards most issues come from RAM incompatibilities. Test your system with 1 stick of RAM, clear CMOS then try do what you need to do
