Whoa. Hold up now.

I didn't say you couldn't overclock, just lower it by like 200-300 MHz so it doesn't need as much Voltage. It's probably a safety feature that our boards have... I can't say for sure. You could always RMA the board, but that's too extreme.

It's not a cover up at all. It's simply avoiding an annoying problem that doesn't affect the functionality of the Windows environment whatsoever.

It's just something that bugged me and I wasn't benching so I went back to stock clocks and the boot cycle stopped. Just a minor annoyance is all.

Sidenote: I'm laughing whilst typing this because it seems like you're getting up in arms over something that isn't that big a deal.

Well it seems like your problem is different from mine. You seem to be having this issue often. Its only been one time randomly, so I'm going to ignore it for now because its not an "annoyance" at the moment.

I'm getting a bit "annoyed" by some of your responses because I'm having issues here that could quite possibly mean RMAing a piece of my computer that could be dead and you're giving me information that you clearly don't really know about. On the other hand Munaim is helping me by actually providing facts and proper things I could check to verify if there is an actual problem.

Thanks for your help though, but it wasn't useful.

Well thanks for the insult. Glad my other two suggestions for second and third didn't help at all.

Let's all calm down

OP let's just continue from here:

I dont get how its an unstable overclock when I ran BF3 for over 40 hours, SC2 for prolly about 15 hours, OCCT for an hour, heaven for 45 mins, 3Dmark for like 10 times.

The Hard Drive could be the issue. Ive never messed with it, this hard drive and the CD drive were the only two things I havnt upgraded. I had these in my old computer, which was about 5 years old.

I highly doubt it's the CPU that's unstable, like I said, check the gpu and the driver, run memetst and check HDD for error's.

Download the one in red and burn the iso on a cd and change boot priority to the cd and it'll load it up automatically. Make sure you run it for atleast 6hours and that the memory is at stock or whatever you had your stable settings at.

If it happend once then it's nothing to worry about, it's probably a cold boot.

EDIT:

About the cold boot, we'll worry about that later. Your mobo is more than capable of runnign the chip at 5.6ghz if the chip had the potential.

Have you tried updating the BIOS on your mobo? You should probably check out the Asrock thread in the Intel motherboard section regarding updates and such, it may just help the stability and more importantly because the GEN3 mobo's are still relatively new, the BIOS isn't as mature as all the other's, therefore updating could certainly help.

Anyways try the things I mentioned above and report back.

LOL no worries, I think you should be able to run it with a usb stick, but not sure. To make things simple just burn it on your Brother's rig lol

Ok the ticking is happening again right now I cant ****ing pin point it! Im putting my ear right to things and cant see/hear where its coming from its so annoying like wow!

Remember I updated my bios and it messed my mouse/keyboard. Cant do that.

Ok i guess ill have to wait till tomorrow to do the memtest. hes asleep and i dont feel like going in his room and doing all this stuff while hes asleep.

EDIT: ALRIGHT Ya im pretty sure its the power supply I just put my ear right up to it and wiggled my computer and its something in there moving. Maybe a little screw at the bottom of the case aswell... Its something near the back and bottom of my computer. Im going to take a look in my computer tomorrow and see whats going on down there. Prolly the rattling fan is the culprit.

Could even be coming from you gpu

Do you have a spare gpu lying around? you could test how rig reponds to the change etc.

Cool, be sure to let us know how you get on. Also read up on that 570 thread I linked and maybe even post something there regarind your overclock and voltage, someone might have some valuable info that could be helpful to you. I hope it's not the GPU and it's something else like the RAM, but too early to say without the memtest gpu check and HDD checks. Also I must've said it a few times but make sure you run a chkdsk to check from hdd error's.

Hope that helps

PSU fan rattling??? I called it lol

My previous PSU did the same and it was out of warranty so I had to do something, had to do some ghetto modding to remove the rattling. If you're sure it's the PSU and it's still under warranty get it changed asap.

Aso test it with a multi meter.

Pretty much what munaim1 has suggested is the right way to go about things, memtest, hdd, drivers and gpu instability. Download some disk tools to run test see if they pass even basic stuff like SMART.

The random wierd hic ups , semi lag, and stuff getting minimized thing happened to me before on my old PH II and it was an unstable PSU. Wierd ripples and fluctuations in it so I sent it back to FSP Group as I was within my warranty and when I got it back everything was fixed.

Alright problem just escalated.

Now I'm constantly freezing every time I try to boot with my overclocked settings. It works perfectly fine when I reset everything to stock, but when I try to go to my 12 hour stable settings it freezes within 30 seconds of the Welcome screen. I'm getting REALLY worried now, is my CPU dead? Is it fried or something??? I cant get overclock settings to work!

Next problem is I have no clue how to burn this. I just tried to burn the memtest to a Memorex CD-R 52x 700MB 80min CD. I downloaded the zip file, extracted it, and took the 1 CD image file for the memtest and burned it to this CD. I tried to boot from CD and it didn't recognize anything and said choose a boot option and all I could do was boot from my hard drive.

Please help me!

First and foremost, calm down lol It'll help you think more clearly

What I would recommend that you clear the CMOS and try again. Go into the BIOS only set the RAM to stock either via XMP or manually and then load it up from the CD.

Run the whole system at stock and do all the troubleshooting, PSU test via multi meter, HDD check with chkdsk and memtest for RAM. Once you accertain the it's all working fine under stock then we can move forward.
