Overclocking worse every time i flash BIOS.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So when i started (before i flashed anything) i could do 5ghz @ 1.32v, then i flashed to the 1.3 BIOS and could do 5ghz @ 1.36, now im at the 2.04 BIOS and i can do 5ghz @ 1.45v mad.gif

I tried reverting back to 1.00 BIOS but it doesnt solve anything, can anyone help me?

MOBO: ASrock Z68 Extreme3
CPU: I5 2500K

Had the board most people don't have problems with it. For me it was the same deal and the volts don't stay right, jump from 1.40 to 1.30 under load.

edit: returned it and got an asus had no problems getting right back to the 5ghz i was stable at before.

Thats very interesting. Im glad im not alone, its so annoying that i had a golden chip before, and now its mediocre at best all because of my stupid motherboard.

Just saw the 2.1 BIOS is out, ima give that a try to see if i can get my real chip back, or if ill be even farther out than i already was frown.gif

EDIT - Its now saying that my flash drive is not a supported device, so ima format it then just put the BIOS on it to see if that was the problem.
