Is This Happening For A Reason?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, lately I've been experimenting with overclocking. Here's some of my specs(more found in my rig builder)

CPU - Amd FX-8350
Motherboard - Asus M5A97 R2.0


So, the problem I'm having, is as you can see from the screen show below




I got a stable overclock, and I also overclocked my ram to 1866mhz.


The weird glitch/bug I'm experencing, is whenever I overclock my cpu to 5.5ghz or more, or when I clock my RAM to 2133mhz, the bios does not show at all. I power on my pc, everything starts up but NO bios screen shows, and it sounds like my pc keeps restarting to try and get bios to show. Then I have to push a button on my motherboard to reset the bios settings, which fixes everything and the next time I start the bios works again.

What could possibly cause this issue?

Sounds like the board can't handle the overclock, or your power settings to the CPU are not sufficient.

It's unstable... And how are you proving stability at 5ghz? Just booting? Because if so that's not stable. 5.5ghz is going to require serious voltage and serious cooling.

True. Especially on a mid-low grade board like that.

I stress test for 30 minutes before I consider a cpu stable(prime95).


But yeah my mobo is lower end, it doesn't even have the digi+ power menu in the bios, which could be the problem. Even with prime95 running for 2 hours, the cpu temp didn't pass 45C, which gives me the idea that I could push it to 5.5ghz, but my mobo is giving me issues.

Anything else that you think would cause this issue?
