I hit the clear cmos button and then tried the auto overclock feature to 4.6Ghz and again applied changes and the same result happened, error 71.
So I tried once more and did the overclock feature to 4.4Ghz and this time it booted and ran an intel burn test for 5 runs and all seems well.
So any ideas why it wont let me go above this?

Can you post some screenie's of your bios setting's? This overclock should not be this hard.

There isnt much to show on screenshots as its now running at 4.4ghz through the auto settings, only thing that is different is I turned onboard audio off and set hard drives to AHCI as I have an SSD.

I gave it a go again setting overclock to 4.6Ghz and again error 71 on the LED, dont know whats going on, maybe bad PSU?

I have been able to get my 2500k and ext3gen3 up to 4.5ghz with a 1.36v. It seems like a bit to much voltage but not over board either. What do you think? I had used the 4.4 auto settings but I would get BSOD x0124 errors so I had to go and set things manually.

My guess it's not your psu but a setting or two in the bios. Any chance you have power saving enabled in the bios?

Yea, these board's run better using manuel setting's with offset voltages.
Vcore1.36 is within that range of 4.5ghz, try upping the multi to 4.6/4.7ghz without any voltage change's.

Yeah I did try bumping it up to 4.6-4.7 and it posts but freezes when windows is loading.

Hey guys, just thought I'd say the z68 pro3-m is my first ASRock board and it will not be the last.

It has been rock solid for 4 months now and can over/under clock like a champ

I do have power saving enabled which I would want to keep, I have seen other 2600k overclocks with all power saving features enabled. I might try reset the bios completely, battery out etc.

Yea, let's try that. Power off, pull battery, wait 5/10 minutes, press power button on pc several time's to remove any leftover power in the motherboard.
Yea, you want to keep power saving enabled.

Fatal1ty Professional Gen 3 has helped me drop 0.6v off my 4.8ghz oc on the UD7.

Gave me a slight pci-e boost with my 6970's using (pci-e 2.1) and ready for 2x 7970's in the two pci-e 3 slots.

1st ASRock board, definitely becoming a long term user.
Jam packed with all the nice features & jazz and loving the "future proofness" with it.
