i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Overclock Not Booting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I'm new to overclocking, this is my first computer and is like my 5th day of trying to overclock and I'm still having a problem. I've watched tons of videos, read tons of guides, and just can't seem to get things working. Whenever I overclock, my computer runs perfectly fine. I have no crashing, no overheating, and no problem when running a torture test in Prime95 however, I just can't get my computer to turn on. Once I set my overclock settings, my computer boots normally and everything runs flawlessly until I turn my computer off and attempt to turn it back on again. When I try to turn it on after the overclock, It turns on and starts booting then shuts down, then starts back up into a black screen. I know how to use the "CLR CMOS" button on the motherboard to reset everything so I can go back in and retry tweaking the settings. All I need to find out is what's causing my computer to not be able to turn on and I should be fine.

Any recommendations on what I should do? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Your OC Tweaker settings looks fine. We have the same UEFI, so if you enter the Advanced tab right next to the OC tweaker tab, and in there you enter CPU Configuration. Would you take another screenshot of that page as well? This page contains the settings for the C-states, they might be worth looking at as well.

Will it boot at a lower overclock which needs lesser voltage?

I've tried some optimized preset overclock settings and had the same issue.

Try disabling C3 State support along with C6 State support and Package C State Support.
I'm not expecting it to magically work, but those are settings you would normally disable when dealing with an offset overclocking.
