Quick question for you all about my new system I just built with the OC Formula board. My new OC formula has had problems straight out of the box, and I would like some opinions on whether or not an RMA is in order.

I've been building systems and overclocking for 18 years, mostly as a hobby. When I brought home my OC Formula board yesterday, it was the first time I ever had a motherboard issue straight out of the box.

When I first fired up my new box, the onboard video would only output blue/green artifacts during POST. Further testing showed that a dedicated graphics card was able to display properly for me in this board.

Sadly, things progressed to a point where the board wouldn't even respond to the power button (on the MB or the case). Thus, I thought the mobo was completely dead...But I kept on tinkering.

Eventually I get the mobo to power on again....However, when trying to load windows 7 install, the system hard locks right before going to the GUI portion (after loading files)

I proceed to take the mobo battery out for 30 mins or so and reset cmos numerous times. By some stroke of luck, the board is booting and working fine with on-board video. No more strange artifacts at POST. Windows 7 installed and working like none of my previous issued ever happened.

Currently only running at stock rated speeds for RAM and CPU, my system passed 6 hours of MBI memtest (with all 32GB), burn test and prime. However, I'm still bothered by the out-of-the-box experience.

Even though the board is *apparently* working now, should the early problems cause me to dial up an RMA, or are these kinds of problems more common than I think? I really don't want to wait until after my return period/mfg warranty expires to find out these problems are more serious.

I did go through and do a real close visial inspection of the board for a reason for the problems. No caps seemed loose and no surface mount components seemed to be missing. I wasn't able to find any bent CPU pins. However, I did find a suspicious ding on the mobo's back side heatspreader for the VRMS.confused.gif

As far as opperation goes, the only current issue I have is HDMI audio being a lot more goofy than my i3 3225 systems.


Specs
HX1000 PSU (Carryover from a previous rig)
i5 3750k
32GB Ballistix Tactical (Also tested with 16GB with only two dimms)
1TB WD1002FAEX (1TB Black)
LG HDTV as temporary setup monitor (in living room, gives me no HDMI issues with my z77 based HTPC and i3 3225)
Onboard video, just for now
Stock cooling, just for now
No BIOS tweaks at all, except for setting my RAM to operate at rated speeds (DDR1600Mhz @ 8-8-8-24... 2T command rates, 1.5V)

Can someone review my settings and make recommendations and/or point me to any high overclock bios templates? Atm am running a 2600k under ss phase (vrm/nb under water). Run 54x, 100BCLK no problem and have BCLK up to 108 (35x). Have gotten 5500 but trying to push a little further (so am in ok boints-land)...ideally would like to get to whatever max I can hit with the board as I'll be using it for a number of other cpus.

tia for any guidance!!!!

Also if anyone knows the PLL on this board and whether it works with setfsb or clockgen...that info would be much appreciated.

I would think it would be either there is something wrong with the onboard video or the integrated video(HD 4000) in the cpu. If it did happen during post then it is not a driver issue. It could also have been a flakey hdmi cable but doesn't make sense why it would not boot. Most likely it is the motherboard. Make sure you test your power supply too. I have seen some boards not boot because the pg signal sends too fast to the motherboard. I would run stress tests for a few days and see what happens.

Seriously, is there any update to Formula Drive anywhere in the near future? These are really starting to get old.

Just wondering anyone bought the MIPS blocks for OC formula..??

also who and where can i custom a mobo block made of copper and plexi for just he mosfets/vrms or whole mobo block would be awesome..

thou theres the MIPS option i rather have something that falls together nicely with my build...

Why would you buy that when the Mobo has built in lines for water cooling?

And they work more than fine for me atleast.
