3570k BIOS Overclock failed

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have the 3570k and msi Z77A-G45 motherboard. I've been having some really weird problems lately. It all started when I decided to overclock my cpu from a stable 4.5 ghz to 4.6 ghz. I upped the ratio and voltage but then ended up getting a blue screen in prime 95..nothing out of the ordinary, so i decreased the ratio and voltage to what they were last time. When i turned on my computer and it got to the "Starting windows" with the logo, it would keep giving me blue screen and shut off. Windows wouldn't boot up and safe mode wouldn't even work. I then decide to reset my bios by taking the battery out and unplugging my power supply for 10 minutes. Afterwards windows finally worked! Now my issue is that when I put my cpu ratio and voltages back to the way they were before when i turn on my computer, half the times windows will boot, and the other half would be my bios telling me that my overclocking settings have failed and that they have reset to default settings. My overclock settings are 4.5 ghz at 1.215 volts. Have tested stability today with prime 95 for 3 hours...and 0 errors. Is my bios messed up or something? Do you think updating my bios would do the trick?

You need more voltage. Try 1.235v and see what happens.

you sure you didnt change any other settings? i found turning off c states (for me, might work for you) helped with the startup process. it would blue screen if i didnt turn those off because the cpu throttles to max at startup, but the voltage doesnt (onnly on startup). other than that the voltage after startup should change according to clock speed.

I'll try that, but I read that turning on c-state was bad for overclocked cpu's?

No it's completely okay for Ivy Bridge processors.

Set your vcore to 1.25 and then test. Mine requires 1.24 for 4.4ghz and 1.28 for 4.5ghz.

Also double-check your setting for LLC - if you had that set at something other than Auto, the CMOS reset probably set it back and that might not be high enough.

not if you are getting bsod's on startup. disabling c-states fixes that voltage state when starting up, because for some reason (for me anyway) on startup the voltage doesnt ramp up when your cpu ramps up, and the cpu ramps up to it's max according to cpu-z every startup without the voltage changing to compensate, dont know why it's like that, but all i know is disabling c states fixes that problem, then it's stable from there on. worked for me anyway. btw this is for offset voltage settings. if you have manual, you don't really have to bother, i hear people have problems with offset voltage and c states enabled.
