Previously tested overclock no longer applied in Windows --> i5 2500k, Gigabyte Z68 UD4-B3 - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Hm.. I'm not sure but try turning off EIST in the BIOS, at least give it a shot before RMAing anything. tongue.gif

Edit: That's the speedstep thing in case it isn't named EIST in the BIOS-

Well, I tried that, as well as turning off C1 and C3/C6 (think those are right). No dice. I would've been surprised if that worked, seeing as I had them on when I was successfully overclocked before.

One last thing to try really...removing the MoBo battery and clearing CMOS. Think it'll do anything? Worth the hassle of pulling my extra GPU to get at the battery?

Yeah there's no harm in trying, and if it works that's great.
Shouldn't be that hard to pull out your graphics card anyway, right? wink.gif

I'm not sure if gigabyte boards work the same as EVGA boards but if I read your settings correctly you have turbo boost disabled and then set the turbo ration to 45. On EVGA boards you need the turbo boost enabled as that is essentially where the OC is coming from. if you then disable EIST (speedstep) it will just default to the highest multi to be applied. Again, that is how my Z68 FTW works. Might be completely different on other boards though.

Nope, they work differently. I've got turbo boost disabled in my BIOS and I'm still running at 4.5GHz so that's not the problem here.

Alright, I'll probably give it a shot tonight after school - probably much later -_- crunch time!

But yeah, normally I don't have Turbo enabled but I tried turning it on with Boost at 45 since my normal OC wasn't working.

In any case pulling the battery a few minutes should be far less hassle than running down to Mem Express and letting them keep my computer for several days tongue.gif

Well, gentlemen....I tried pulling the Mobo battery to clear the CMOS....scared myself along the way because I unwittingly knocked the Mobo power cable out a little bit and it wouldn't turn on....

But alas, my core speed remains at 3.3 GHz, regardless of multiplier setting. Even regular turbo boost still doesn't work.

Any other suggestions? I don't know if I will be able to bring it in for replacement any earlier than May frown.gif

Unfortunately I don't have time to write any more things you can try out at the moment, got school for the next couple of hours. When I get home I'll take a look at it again tho.

I've spent a little while thinking about it, just to realize that I'm stumped. I honestly don't have a clue as to what's wrong. I recall seeing threads about this issue some time ago, but despite my google-fu I can't seem to find them.. at all.

Hopefully someone that has more insight in this problem will be able to help you, I however will not.
