Tried OC now stuck on Boot Loop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi I tried overclocking my i7-870 to 3.8ghz but now I pretty much messed up my computer I think since I tried clearing CMOS by using jumpers and taking out battery but it still didn't work. It will just continue to turn on for 5 secs then turn off. I can't even reach BIOS or the monitor won't display anything. I don't think any of the components died on me. What can I do? Should I replace the Mobo?

RMA the motherboard.

Had the same boot cycling issue with my old Z68 Gigabyte board. All you can do, is RMA and wait.

Its a problem with the whole Dual BIOs situation.

They said it would be fixed with another BIOS update but I've yet to see it be fixed. Happens from time to time but it only really happens when my motherboard does that BIOS setting reset due to overclocking failure.

Gigabyte couldn't even give me a valid reason as to what the deal is.. so I just use my own assumption.

But it will boot cycle 3 times, and boot up. Its never constant like my old board. So I guess the third time is the charm. Lol
