asrock z77 oc please help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
this is the only section I could post frown.gif idk if im doing somehing wrong but i hope someone can help...... Today I bought a new setup, the z77 oc formula, I switched from the evga z77 ftw..so heres my two problems.....number one, I do not know a lot about overclocking, zilch. this is why this board appealed to me because of the pre set profiles... ill choose a 4.5 overclock profile and save then boot and in the overclock formula software it will say im at 4.5 oc then all of a sudden it will say 1600mhz..which maybe because im idle? but when I check in my windows on computer it still says cpu is at 3.4 I have the i5 3570k.. even when I run a program for cpu speed its at 3.5.... am I doing something wrong? secondly, I have an evga gtx 560 gpu that is hooked up but does not work, it worked on previous mobo but not now, when i plug in my power to it the mobo does not want to post not even when im using the hdmi on the i/o section, but if I unplug the gpu it will turn on and boot from hdmi port on the i/o .... any suggestions? Thank you ahead of time

hey..

the 1600 are idle speed and this is normal if you keep using offset.
but try your luck here first..
