Startup post OC is now a bit weird...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently overclocked my pc with help from these forum threads and a few other useful pages and everything is running great. My one point of concern is that when I first turn my pc on now, I hear all my fans spin up, they go for about a second, then everything shuts off. I wait another 3 seconds and then they start going again and the pc runs fine until I turn it off. Nothing else is weird about the pc's behavior and I've run intelburntest for over an hour and my cpu never got over 70 C.

Is this something I need to be concerned about?

Components
i5 760 running at 3.8 GHz (20x multi and 190 on the bclk)
evga p55 ftw motherboard
evga 460 gtx x 2 in sli
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold 800w psu

If anyone might know anything about this and if I'm running too much off the psu then please let me know. I also have 3 sata hard drives and about 5 fans in the system. Nothing else I can think of that might be drawing power. I have the mobo running a VTT voltage of 1.2 and my Vcore is running at 1.225. Thanks for any info you might have.

Welcome to OCN

So basically your computer turns on and then turns off...and then turns on again and running fine even with your overclock...correct? Does this happen on a restart or a fresh boot up when the computer was off...or both? Does the computer continue to do so when not overclocked (stock settings)? I might not be able to help you thoroughly but do you have 'Virtualization Technology' on in your BIOS menu (not even sure if your board supports it)? Anyway...I suggest updating your BIOS for your board through the eVGA Website. You may have to redo your overclock and test for stability though...but if you're willing to take the risk then by all means go for it. Take note of what your current BIOS version is so you may be able to return to your original BIOS version...this may be tricky to find out though.

Thanks for the response pvp309rcp.

First off, the PC only does the "on/off/on" behavior when the computer was completely turned off. On restarts it does not have to do this in the OC settings. As for stock BIOS settings, it has no problem starting whether a fresh boot or a restart.

As for Virtualization Technology, my board has it and I currently have it enabled in both stock and OC settings.

I made sure to update my BIOS prior to the OC so it's the newest software they have for it.

In over my head here, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Memtest, if it passes clear CMOS and see if it does the same with everything at stock.. if it's not the memory is either the Motherboard(most likely) or the PSU(very unlikely).
