is the thread regarding the overclock and this
is the thread regarding my temps. Take a look and see.
One thing bothers me about all this though. How am i meant to upgrade in the future without this problem happening again? I mean, i wanted to upgrademy GPU soon, but i dont want this to happen again.
Right on, well just set those values back in, and you should be good to go. I think you can go higher than 3.6ghz though.
Is your pc under warranty from wherever you bought it from? Did they register the board with Asus, so you have the asus warranty? Honestly that shouldn't happen with the board, and I found a lot of posts in the asus forums with similar issues, so you aren't alone. A lot of the people on there ended up eventually RMA'ing their board.
Not saying you have to do this, but if the problem purists, I would definitely contact ASUS support, or if it's under warranty from the pre-built place them.
Just looked over those threads, yeah, they did exactly what I thought, just gave you a mild 3.6OC, and over volted the p**s out of it, left most things on auto. I think you can do better on you're own, just check out that guide, and go from there.Edited by anubis1127 - 8/17/11 at 7:45pm
