System issue w/ non-overclocked CPU

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm new here and have an issue I hope someone might be able to help me with.

I've recently built a new system which is light yrs faster than my old 939 Athlon single core. It started out ok but the past week or so I've had a couple odd shutdowns. These were during 2 different Steam gaming sessions. I have had no problems during general computer usage.

When I reboot from the shutdowns I get the message that my overclocking specs weren't good and to press F1 to fix them. I don't understand why since nothing on my system has been purposely overclocked (CPU, memory, GPU). I am, as far as I can tell from the BIOS settings, running on the defaults.

My specs:

Cooler Master HAF 922 case
ASUS M5A99X EVO MB BIOS v1102
AMD FX6100 running at the 3.3 default
Cooler Master 212 EVO CPU fan in pull/push used the supplied paste (next time I know to use Arctic)
GeForce 460se GPU
Corsair Vengeance 1600 2 sticks 4gigs ea. running @1333 (yeah I know, that might be the 1st thing I attempt to OC, if I ever do)
OCZ Mod Xtreem Pro 700W supply
Windows7 Home Premium


I have the latest AI Suite programs installed and have monitored my CPU temps. Idle runs btwn 29-31C. When running a game it gets hotter but nothing crazy.

Could the MB automatically be overclocking somewhat as I notice that most options in the BIOS's AI Tweeker tab are set to Auto. If so, any way to turn it off and run plain vanilla as I'm not interested in OCing right now (no offense, maybe later). Also, I have read that people stress test there systems to find problems. I have never done this so what would be a good start for that? Kinda wondering if the memory is at fault?

Thnx for any help, Euchre

They Stress test to ensure there system is stable at that a OC. If your not interested in OCing for now, Load Defaults in Bios.

Also, make sure Asus does not auto OC for you. It did that to me a couple of times. Try to completely uninstall there tuning software.

To test you memory use memtest86. For a stress test use intel burn test. I uninstalled the asus ai suite on my rig it was doing odd things. And you memory at 1333 is just fine. No need to over clock it.
Worse than crack.

hello,
i have the same mobo as u,and i can tell you that your ram can run at 1600mhz if it is 1600mhz,the bios auto sets it to 1333mhz,even if you have 1866 like mine.
the thing to do is to go in to bios and set the ram manually to 1600mhz.
i would also disable your turbo core,on the next tab go to cpu advanced setting and disable cool and quite and c1e and c6 state,that should stop your cpu speed from "going all over the shop"

as for overclocking your cpu,its so easy,all you have to do is change the cpu ratio,thats it.
you cpu multiplier or cpu ratio is 16.5,but amd says the cpu can use all cores up to 3600 which is a cpu ratio of 18x and that will be a bit faster and will damage nothing ,but might lessen is life a little,but compaired to the 4ghz + overclockers,not much.

if you want to leave cool and quite on,but i dont.

Thnx for all the help guys! I've fully uninstalled the AI Suite Software and have been keeping an eye on things. Even played one of the Steam games that crashed in multi the other night and things went smooth, so hopefully that was it.

Mr P. I appreciate the help and have set my ram to 1600 and so far so good. Since I upgraded from the slower CPU to this one the speed difference is amazing enough I'm not looking at OCing the CPU yet but thank you for the info!
