The vcore is on auto and vdroop to smile.gif works perfectly and voltage stays fixed at 1.280v in load!

It downclocks and downvolts in idle. I will try 4.6GHz, when I have time, maybe more (4.8-5GHz)

Thanks for your help!

PS: I tride 4.6GHz and got a BSOD I guess there needs to be worked on in some settings! I am pleased with the 4.4GHz overclock, I think I leave at this frequency, for the temperatures mostly

I'm running a Z77IA-E53, which is very similar in BIOS and overall configuration to the Mpower and I've been getting this issue as well. I managed to get downclocking with C1E to work at some point by switching to Eco Mode and changing the CPU Multiplier there to my intended overclock.

I'm currently trying to figure out if it has something to do with the Long Duration Power Limit or Short Duration Power Limit. I think that if they are set to 200 and 250 respectively no downclocking occurs but it may work with 77 and 96.

Guys please I need help ASAP! I have bought a Mpower+3570K combo at the marketplace and now after countless hours cleaning my loop, building it, etc. It just doesn't power on! My PSU is working, I've used it to fill the loop and it was used in my old build (disassembled a couple of days ago). Have already switched my 2666Mhz kit for some 2133 sniper that were on the old build. I really don't want to tear this apart look how much stuff I got inside this little 690. What happens is:

- I turn the PSU on the Power button lights on but nothing happens;
- Already tested one stick only of RAM that is 100% working;
- I have a 2600K from my prior build, if needed I may change it but wan't to try everything possible before;
- It was a real PITA to fit those cards;
- Please, any thoughts?

I would disable C1E and use intel C-state it's meant to have better power management

I would try upping those power limits to 200 and change vdroop control from auto to about 50 to 75% and enable PLL overvoltage, see how it goes

@ armartins - are you sure, the GPU's aftermarket coolers copper exposed ends aren't touching the drive cage and causing a short?

LOL on the new case comment...but yeah!

First off, did it ever power up before the recent work? If not, it's always good to start simple and then add stuff later. Have you tried both power buttons? Case and Onboard?

If so and still no go, then you will probably have to simplfy the situation by taking something off of the MB. Maybe mem, or drives, or GPU(s).

Check all wiring of course first, but I expect you have already done that multiple times by now!
