Asus Maximus VI Hero Wont Overclock?! Haswell - Pics

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had a professional build my new system with the 1150 Maximus VI Hero MB, I5-4670k, H100i, GTX 780 TI, AX 860 etc..

The computer runs great, cpu idles around 26c, Max temp 50c. Played ARMA 3 for hours on ultra 1440p no problem. However.. having a H100i water cooler & 4670K cpu I planned on overclocking like I had done on 6 other i5/i7's I have had the last 6 years. Never had a problem.

It seriously WILL NOT take any overclock on the multipliers over stock. If I do even just 35x with or without stock voltage, it will not boot. One thing that is weird is initially I was going to try it at 44 multiplier then set the cpu cache to 42-44, but when I enter in anything and hit enter in the cache, it automatically puts itself down in the low 30's? So maybe this is why it wont overclock? Its like its not a K model. What the heck? I had a local shop look at it for about 12 hours and they cant figure out what is wrong. Is the Motherboard or CPU bad? I need to know what to RMA... : /

- Oh ya: I had given up and tried the AI III suite auto overclock, the very second it started and tried a minor OC. The whole computer crashed hard and went to the (WHEA_Uncorrectable_error) bluescreen. It took the computer 15min to recover and it corrupted 80% of my data on my SSD.

I just finished a similar build and I was able to overclock after watching this guide:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7zPu9255ZI

Just a few things to double check:

1. The latest bios is installed.
2. Latest drivers installed.
3. Update the firmware on the board and ssd.
4. Is corsair link installed?
5. What version of windows are you running? All updates installed?
6. XMP profile selected in bios?

Good luck, awesome build.

Thanks for your reply Steve. Yes I have gone through all those steps unfortunately. I guess I will just try to RMA the CPU. It's starting to idle about 10c hotter than before as well.

Your welcome,

After watching the video I noticed JJ has the ram installed in the opposite slots from your rig pic. Try swapping the ram to the other channels and see if you have any luck. Just an idea...

Thanks for the REP!!
