I had updated to the latest official 2.0 BIOS and was overclocking and tweaking my FX-8350 for a few weeks.
Had it to 4.669 stable with RAM OC'd 2164. HT2600 and NB 2200.
I don't know what happened, but one day I kept getting an untrue
"you failed to boot...loading UEFI defaults" and it would set itself to all auto settings and dump my RAM to 1333. ***? I hadn't failed to boot???? I kept loading my saved stable profiles. Still it said I failed to boot last boot - which was not true! Then loaded all auto defaults.
I tweaked downward on everything, Swapped RAM, you name it. No dice.
Finally I decided I either fried something over-volting or my BIOS was in a funk. Well if I fried something - what's done is done.
So with nothing to lose I Flashed the 2.01B BETA Bios. No feature it added meant anything to me. I just wanted to test my BIOS hick-up theory.
BINGO! Issue solved!
I reset all my OC profiles and I am back in Overclock heaven!
So if any of you get in this endless loop I am sharing my solution.
