I need to get a new cooler at the moment............. I kinda "broken" my hyper 212.......... It is still usable after sticking some foams on the side panel to make sure it makes contact with the CPU. But worse temps....... IMO, I think.

Thread Starter 
Please let me know if you had a post code A0 or 72 what steps you took to try and solve the issue. If you were getting this in a custom settings - dot default loadouts - please list all the options you changed. please let me know if you attempted to unplug everything but your keyboard/mouse (usb or ps2?) as this may help figure out the issue.

To those with A0 - please list all drives you have attached, flash/ssd/hdd/other. Also please let me know your startup options as well as the mode you installed windows on and the mode you currently run ( like: installed with IDE mode and using in AHCI or vice versa)

this error is related to drives

to those with 72 - please list all the devices you have attached, PCI-E, SATA, USB3.0/2.0, other (display from igp), essentially anything that attaches to the MPower

this one is related to z77 chipset initialization

Wow goat! Awesome work. My exact rig is now in my profile for you. I installed windows just like I always have, not sure of the different modes. If you need more info shoot me a PM and I'll get you whatever you need. Amazing work and help my friend. Much appreciated.

Oh, I have not tried removing everything and powering on with just the keyboard and mouse.

I built my mates pc yesterday using this motherboard. I put in a core i5 3470, and 4ghz is the highest it can go due to the 3.2ghz +800mhz limited overclock it can do. But when i first tried setting up the bios, the bios settings would save ok, but when i restarted the bios it wouldnt boot, and i would have to switch off the psu. I tried having the cpu at 4ghz and 3.8ghz but sometimes it wouldnt boot, or the system would turn off then reset itself, i think it was changing the cpu oc back to stock, or if it did boot the ram would be at 1333 and not 1600 even though i set it to 1600. after 20 minutes of this trail and error booting, the bios was stable running at 4ghz and 1600 ram.

Now the pc is running win7 64bit and its working great. But for some reason the bios was being an idiot for the first 20 minutes it was powered on, the bios version is 17.4.

Do some motherboards or cpu's need time to function properly? It seemed this pc did need some time to settle in and be stable.

I tried using CL3P20 advice and power settings to get my CPU to downclock correctly. It worked, however something I clicked set my memory back to 1066. My OC Genie Options had all stayed the same, but it refused to go back to 2000mhz with the timings that I had chosen. Ended up restoring all defaults. Changed my settings exactly how they were before however its not sticking correctly. My CPU voltage is not staying at 1.07 when running prime95 its getting to 1.129 and added another 7-8*C to my CPU temps. I also could not get the memory to go back to 2000 with the main OC settings page memory frequency set to auto. I had to move that to 2000mhz as well or it just stayed at 1066. Also had a corrupted BIOS boot up like my last board was doing. This is the first time this board has done this to me. It did let me take a pic so you can see what it looks like.

This is becoming a nightmare.

As I catch up n read the past pages I want to remind lurkers/possible buyers/new owners:

People mostly come to forums when they problems, many of us who own this board have none and many of the problems you read here are user error, either by playing with the BIOS and/or trying to go cheep by taking crappy RAM beyond its limits. This board is rock solid.

I very well may be making user errors thats for sure. My ram is by no means crap. I know that comment isnt directed towards me but it definitely is good for people to know that people do hit the forums usually only when they are having issues. Theres probably 1000s of people at home running this board without issue, or just better knowledge at how to make it run right.

Amen brother. I am loving my board so far. I just loaded the OS and it has had no issues so far. I will OC it more when I can find the time. I will keep a mirror next to me so I can look at the reason it is not cooperating. I have had bad boards before and the suck, but not the case with this beast

 From reading your previous post, it sounds like you were having issues clocking your memory back to where they were previously? Did you adjust only the power settings.. or did you adjust timings and voltages as well when you compared your settings to mine?

 

Off the cuff it sounds like a memory issue with the timings/voltages used. But I hope your response will confirm my suspicion.

post #740 of 3633
When I copied your options over I did not touch my timings or voltages or frequency. Saved and reloaded and my ram was at 1066. Pretty strange. Tried to set it back but in the options it still had my timings and frequency selected in bios. Load to windows, still says 1066. Ended up loading defaults again, CPU was down clocking to 1600, and up to 3800 under prime95 but my voltages that I set to 1.07 weren't sticking and instead it would auto adjust to whatever it felt like. Up to 1.129ish which raised my load temps 7-8*c. Why wont this board do what I tell it to? Lol.
