Just got myself the 750D so my temps have dropped down a little bit as I was using a modified testbench prior, I keep having to put off getting my water cooling stuff, but I'm going to start buying it in stages.

I keep wanting to get the whole lot in one go, but spending 800 bucks on water cooling gear that wont give me as much performance as what I could acquire by spending that 800 on parts alone (like a 290x) is hard to click the button, but I'll get there.

Alot of my games are CPU bottle necked, after the BIOS update it went tback to stock 4ghz clock with 4.2ghz turbo, noticed a huge framerate drop. Haven't had the time to sit down and reclock it, but I'll be doing it tonight as I want to get alot more frames out of Elder Scrolls Online.

Two of the recent iterations said "stability improvements" so yes I would have thought it. One negative is my onboard sound seemed to have stopped working on the latest BIOS, I have informed Asus but yet to have a response (4+ weeks now).

I'm on BIOS version 1302, "Improved system Stability" just means they're fixing minor bugs.

Updating wipes out all your settings, not worth it to me. Don't they have a way to save your BIOS settings and restore them after the update?

Just a thought; did you clock the speeds and not the voltages. if you up the multiplier or the frequency and not the voltages it would have similar symptoms.

@ MegaMan

It seems to me that when I updated from 1302 to 2104 my saved profiles stayed. But when I went from 2104 to 2301 I lost everything!

I may be wrong, but that's the way I remember it. I remember thinking how lucky I was to have my old profiles!

If your voltage is not high enough to keep your overclock stable, then yes, the entire system can freeze

What overclock settings are you running?
