OC Fail, Boot failure, HELP ME PLEASE JESUS

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've encountered boot failures every time I hit the power button. I have a P8z68 Deluxe Motherboard with an I72600k and 1600 Mhz cosair vengence 2x4GB ram.

Everytime I hit power, it would load then it would say "Overclocking has Failed" and I noticed my Ram wasn't showing as 1600 but as 1333 mhz. I used the OC tuner and it showed on the main page at 1623 mhz which solved the OC error. Then after a couple reboots, it went back to 1333mhz even though I set the Ram Frequency at 1600.

Couple minutes ago, I couldn't even start my computer and I started to pathetic, thinking that I damaged my motherboard. I used the MEMOK button and started my computer yet the defaults settings still shows 1333mhz.

Can someone give me advice or steps on what I'm suppose to do? My PC was running beautifully and I don't know *** happened.

or the reset button on your mobo (if any)

CMOS reset = back to factory defaults. Should allow you to boot.

Your overclock failed. You need to redo everything and test for stability.

Your motherboard should be fine, but something was definitely causing instability.

Factory defaults in the BIOS and try again

I was trying to set my ram frequency at 1600 because I thought it would solve the Overclock fail. It wasn't showing as 1600 when I set it to that.

Can you boot into your PC now though?
If you are fiddling with the BIOS, can I suggest you try setting the BCLK to 100 as opposed to any other speed.
When mine was set to 101.3 it was causing me some trouble.

Yeah, I'm already booted on this computer. It seems everything is fine and I'm at 1632 Mhz on my ram.. It's weird though because if I connect my 200m Fan my bios ****s up again... and it doesn't make any sense to me.

Also I think my boot load got longer..

I remember reading somewhere about a user who had a problem with their fan connection. In fact if they used a particular fan connector they would have problems not able to boot up properly etc.... Their solution was simply to use a different connect on the board.

Maybe try different fan connectors to see if that helps?
