same for cpu power phase control..
EDIT: your FSB is way too high... change the memory multiplier and balance your overclock with the cpu multi

Can you point me in some direction to understand
how to change the memory multiplier ?

or can you recommend a overclocking manual to help me learn that? thanks

I don't know .. but whatever you had me change made the cpu heat up fast on the
stability test.. I never saw it go over 57c and it was steadily getting hotter...
it hit 75c and risnig before i killed the test...

do it manually... and the option to check the memory multiplier, is the option that reads "Memory Frequency" right under "PCIE Frequency"... put it on 1600mhz

are you using Prime95 to test stability?? not that i am against that program, but i keep away from it... i use the AIDA64 stability test instead...

temps are raising fast because the cpu/nb is now on "free will"... it will increase/decrease as it sees fit.. mine does that too... so dont worry... but you did good to halt the test... i dont use programs like intel burn test, prime or whatever program that "tries to kill" my cpu... if it doesn't crash while playing, it is good to go... also, a good tool for testing stability (in my honest opinion) is the 3DMark Advantage... run the performance test and if it bluescreens, try lower clocks...

dont freak out... as i saw in one of the users signature overhere, overclocking is tough.. so dont get frustrated...

Cool thanks for your help..

I wanted to tell what happened to me a few days ago, windows 7 stopped working , after trying to fix it finished doing a fresh install.

Everything perfect except the games, which were far worse and didn't understand why.
At the end I remembered that i hadn't installed the latest drivers for the motherboard , I had installed the ones that came with the ASUS CD , was installed and all was going as I remembered.

So if you have not updated the chipset drivers, do it right now. I never imagined I would be so important, Go to the ASUS website and get off the latest drivers

Can stress it to Hades and back and it will never restart.
Any ideas, I've already reseated everything, tried different RAM, bot an ATI and NV card.

Thats why this time, i actually followed the recomendations of some of the people in the power supply forum. i bought a seasonic 750x gold. Yes it was pricey and im sure there are suitable units for a lower cost but I just was thru with issues related to power supplies. It worked and i have had not one issue with my system. Possibly visit the power supply forums and they can make some suggestions for testing or make recomondations.
I also wanted to thank you for the link in your sig "site features and explanations" for what i think is a must read for anyone on ocn.
I had been looking for information on posting site features etc. but didnt know where to find this info. I will definitely rep when i get back from vacation as i have issues on my ipad when repping.
Good luck and i hope you solve your issue.

@djmatrix32 i dont have my board close but im thinking there is a setting to change the audio front pannel connector from ? to hd audio. As my board supported hd i tried it and had issues so i used the other setting. I dont remember what it was called. oh i think it was audio97? or similar. I have a coolermaster haf 22. I do know in the past not all audio headers were wired the same. If there is an audio forum possibly someone has more information on this.. possible issue. I dont use my front pannel connectors often and in the back i use spidif. or optitcal connection. Sorry i dont have a more definite answer

Finally able to draw a bead on what's happening.

On occasion while the cpu(fx-6100) is switching power states the board will shut down.
I've only seen it happen when it hits 3.9....3.3, 3.6 are fine, only when it hits 3.9.
If I disable turbo and my power saving features, no more issues.
But I would really like to use the power saving features, any thoughts?
