Sabertooth p67 problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm updated to the latest released 1606 BIOS, and this is my first build.

When I perform a cold boot, everything powers on, and then goes off, and then turns back on. I get to the windows splash screen, and then I get a blue screen.

This seemingly happens at random. Once the computer gets up and running, everything functions properly. I can shut it down, and power it back on, and it works. I can restart just fine. When I shut it down for an extended period of time, is the only time the error occurs.

Also, sometimes it doesn't happen at all. Ex: I went to bed last night, got up the next morning, powered up the PC, everything was fine. Shut it down, and went to work. When I got home tonight, it powered on, then reset itself, then I got a blue screen. Then the computer shut down, I turned it back on again, and everything functioned properly. My processor is currently overclocked. If any other information is needed to help diagnose the problem, just ask. I would really like to get it working properly, it's quite an annoyance, and with this being my first build, it makes me think that things are about to go south.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a very similar setup. Follow the instruction in your user manual to properly reset the BIOS. There's no point to diagnose a computer issue while overclocked, gotta have stability first speed second. Instruction are located @ article 2.2.5 (Jumpers).

There's a bug with OCZ Vertex 3 and 1606 BIOS, might want to roll back to the original using the included driver CD and then update to 1502. Actually I believe default BIOS is 1502 for the B3 revision. Anyway just roll back to factory default.

When that done, report back to us.

Would be nice to know what error code you're getting.

The issue didn't occur until I overclocked. I had the 1502 bios when I got the board. One of the first things I did was update to 1606, so I used the computer for a good week or two before I decided to attempt overclocking. After I did this, is when I started to see errors. In fact, if I reset everything to default now, I'm sure it would never happen again. So there's something wrong with my settings, or my OC isn't completely stable or something. It did pass all of the stability tests though. I did 10 passes of IBT on Ultimate. I ran Prime 95 for about 10 hours, and I did OCCT for 3 hours, with no blue screens. I did all of these because I asked 3 different people what to use, and they all told me something different. So the only time I'm getting the error is when I cold boot after the computer has been shut down for an extended period of time. Right now I'm at 4.6GHz with 1.35v. The next time I get the blue screen, I will write down the code. I tried to recreate it, but I don't know how long the computer has to be off before it occurs. I left it shut down for ten minutes, and it booted up fine. Usually when I go to bed, and get up the next day is when I get it, so maybe I can catch it tomorrow.

Also, Asus just released the 1801 BIOS, maybe I should update again? It says 1. 2.2TB or larger HDD can be supported under RAID mode, so I don't really think I need it.
