I know I can probably disable that, but I was curious if I shouldn't just bump up to 1504? I see that there were some stability improvements with the different versions, but again I'm fine with everything right now. Looking for some input from those who've been a member of the tribe longer than me smile.gif
Use the ASUS program through Windows, takes 2 seconds and its safe thumb.gif
Everybody needs to realise that there were a lot of problems flashing bios files back in the day now it is a fail safe system with buttons on the backplate to reset etc...

Is there a way I can reload an older bios to see if that's the issue?
Try reset BIOS settings by removing the coin battery on the motherboard. Removed it for 10 seconds then put it back. Try overclock again.

Ok Thanks for that advice, I've managed to put the Bios back to 1403, to see if that makes a difference. Sadly I have had to go to work before I could test it.

If not, then I'll try taking the battery out. I'm guessing i need to take the armor off to access it correct.

Here is my build:

DSC07357.jpg
I cut out the front 200mm grill and also took out the stock fan and replaced it with a 200mm spectre pro

DSC07358.jpg
I cut out the grills unoder the noctua fans so they would get better airflow to my h100 cooler

DSC07359.jpg
cable management. Could have done better, but at this point i had taken everything apart 2 times because of a few issues i had, so i rushed to get the cables tied up

DSC07360.jpg

I'm trying to overclock my I5 3570K to 4.5Ghz.
I've updated Bios to 1506 x64
However it seems that it dosnt matter if I use OC tuner or change the ratio settings by hand, the chip just sits at 3.40ghz, almost as if it's locked.
The settings change in the bios, I.E. the show the new settings in he menu, but the chip dosnt do a thing.
Could someone please point me where I'm going wrong.
I've used OC Tuner, that didn't work, so then set the following by hand.
I've changed CPU ratio to 45
And mem to ddr3 1600mhz
Everything else is on auto
Hope to hear from u soon

Hi Cowboy10uk,

Here are my bios settings for 4.5

Note the offset needs to be to 0.025 not the 0.005 it is showing in these pics.

You would have to take the Armor Off.. But before you do that have you tried clearing the CMOS with the JUMPER

Unfortunately there is limited possibility of mounting the fans below the radiator. I have the same setup with the same mobo, case, and H100. Do you have the top Noctua fans as intake or exhaust? Have you noticed any difference? What is your opinion? Thanks...

I have mine as intakes pulling cold air in over the h100 rad. I didn't try to use them as exhausts, I had always planned them for intakes
