post #4371 of 8112
ok ive started this new build and been wanting to try Overclocking (for the first time) ive read allot of tutorials on how to do but I allways seem to encounter the same problem ... when I overclock I allways get a blank screen even if I only upgrade CPU-Ratio up .5 and even when I lower it .5 ... and the same problem occurs when I set my my systeme performence to ASUS Optimal I get a blank screen on load-up ... here is my build

AMD BULLDOZER FX-8120
ASUS M5A97
CORSAIR VENGENCE 8GBDDR3-1600
CORSAIR VENGENCE 8GBDDR3-1600
SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 6870 1GB
SEAGATE BARRACUDA 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA
SAMSUNG SH-S223L/RSBS DVDRW 22X SATA
OCZ ZT SERIES 750W
CORSAIR COOLING HYDRO SERIES H100
CORSAIR CARBIDE SERIES 400R (6 -120mm fans + 2 - H100 120mm fans)
WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM (installed service pack 1 and bulldozer hotfixs)
PATCHED BIOS TO 1120 ALSO(im thinking this is causing the problem)mad.gif


my core temps usualy sits arround 18*C and 22*C
hopefully someone can help me with this problem cuz i would really like to overclock this system. ive been a AMD fanboy since the first anthlon 64bit !! thumb.gif

if you have the same board as me (the m5a97 NON pro, NON evo) then i can help you out xD

my first question is, are you sure it's 1120 BIOS? cuz i have 1102 and that´s the latest last i remember?
my second question is, did you boot it up "normally" before jumping into overclock?
when do you get the blank screen, BEFORE or AFTER bios?
what happens after you put the bios back to the defaults?
did you have to use the MemOK button to get your system to boot?

It's likely a memory issue. If you overclock the fsb, make sure to drop the memory down to a setting at or below the 1600MHz it's rated at. I recommend manually setting RAM settings for that motherboard. Also, if you overclock the CPU via multiplier, you probably need to raise the CPU voltage to get the overclock to work successfully.

I have the same board NON PRO NON EVO and the BIos is 1102 my mistake lol tongue.gif
well it was booted up normal and i get the blank screen on startup can't jump into Bios have to reset the Bios to defaul everytime
and didnt need to use MemOK button just had to reset bios with the removing battery technique

i didnt try dropping the memory down a bit but for the other part multipliyer and voltage im good with that i see allot that recomended voltage is 1.450v should i stick with that ?

is your RAM on the QVL, because it shouldn't be doing this, even when i do failed overclocks, the BIOS recovers on it's own on my board, i just gotta shut the machine off (hard power off) then turn it back on
do the MemOK lights flicker at all when you boot up, or is it steady?

also what i meant before was, have you gotten successful boots, like have you gotten into windows, been able to use it, then rebooted and still are able to use it (on default settings) or no?

you can possibly get up to 4.5 - 5ghz with the cooling you have, depending on what temp the air is at that you get your source from, and what your ambients are, but you will need to put your volts on your CPU up, i would honestly not push it past 1.525v if i were you, and i myself prefer straight multiplier OC, over FSB OC

after first stress test at 4.2ghz this is what I got ... 375

I could probally get better core temp il start looking on how to max my airflow

my config right now for the fans is 2 front 2 side pushing air in and 1 back 2 top pulling air out , I got one more not installed yet and one more ordered waiting for it to be shipped to put both on top

those are still good temps imo, just keep the core temp away from 61C and you'll be fine, remember to only up the voltage when you NEED to, or when you see VDROOP, and even then you can manage it with LLC
