Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z boot problem.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had my newly assembled Intel Core i7 2600k and Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z but when I boot up, it says 'CPU Over Temperature Error' and I had to go press F1 and go to the bios. This is my first time with Asus ROG bios and I'm newbie. Pls help! : D

Update: I installed an OS. But the boot up sequence doesn't go directly to my windows. I had to boot override the disk inorder to access my disk.

Also, Im using a Corsair Dominator 1600 MHz 4GB and in the bios says 1333 MHz

Plss help, and don't laugh .. Im a newbie : )

You say you installed an OS ... but did you do a FRESH CLEAN INSTALL ? meaning not a copy from anywhere, not off another HDD,  a true 100% from scratch clean install ? that often is a BIG issue with new builds. Also double check that your RAM and your CPU are all seated properly, especially the RAM since only the one side has the lock down tabs, you'd be suprised how many people don't set them in and lock them in place properly, and the excessive number of Error Codes and Issues that result from this.

 

As for your RAM clocks (1600 MHz /vs 1333 MHz) issue, in the BIOS set Mem Profile to XMP, that should help.

 

I'd also suggest you join up and post this in our Maximus IV GENE-Z68 Owners Club, lot's of smart help in there teaching.gif
