Nvm lol, figured you had done it recently, not sure a reflash will help more than just clearing cmos and starting over again, freezing is obviously an unstable overclock but it should still downclock as long as they are set to do so, try lowering your cpu ratio and see if it downclocks.

ok going to try and clear my CMOS, but im not sure why the multiplier wont work in windows at 23, no matter the blck.

im back at a x23 multiplierno particular reason for wanting it, other than that it worked then no longer worked

i disabled speed step to get it back, odd. while It would be nice for temps for it to downclock when not in use. are there any particular reasons to NOT have it clocked at 4ghz 24/7?

Not quite sure, I had windows once give me a usb port error reporting that it was faulty and my front usb 3.0 ports were not working, had to pull the battery out and reset to get it working. Might be worth a try!

see my edit, i was too lazy to pull my case out(haf 932, thing is like 60 pounds with everything in it) and in a crappy spot so its reallly annoying to get to. so i disabled speed step and cstate as one last ditch effort to get it to work, and tada.

on to my next questions


do I need to mess with my vcore, pcie timings or anything like that? everything else is on auto.


current settings are 168x23 @ 3.8ghz , vcore is sitting at about 1.245v , guess ill leave it here for a bit to see if any games crash.

Vcore wise yes, you should, why? Because if you are overvolting that cpu then it will burn at some point, how soon? You never know lol, its a pita, but in the long run you will be running your system under your parameters and not what the bios thinks is a good idea. There is a lot of info on whats safe, I had pretty much everything set on auto but the vcore however you are going to need to test out your system to figure out what works for you, llc needs to be on also. All the other parameters can be set to auto as long as it works afaik.

now if only I could figure out why h1z1 is running at 4x speed when overclocked.

Lol, can´t help you there, I remember having issues with skyrim and a 144hz monitor, almost bought a new system as I thought mine had crapped out, silly game couldn´t handle anything over 60fps as it messed with the game engine lol.

Weird, you kind of fixed yours and mine crapped out, for some reason now its shutting down instead of rebooting and I am randomly losing my bios settings... Gonna have to try a new battery and test the psu. Not sure what else to check, maybe time to move on to x99?

I just read on google for a long time and its basically two things: VERY ****ty programming on the games part, and issues with the FSB.

can you maybe help with these words?

"Alright, in that case it seems to be an overclocking issue indeed. Have you tried overclocking with a 'natural frequency' on the frontside bus?
Instead of 389MHz take something like 266 or 333 and make sure the multiplier for the RAM is still making it to 533, 667 or 800 (or 1066 or 1200) in that case. See what happens then. "

is from a fix i read. Is any of this applicable to my cpu? :/

er
I guess it means to keep it as natural as possible, in other words like memory is rated at, 800/1333/1600 etc and not something in between, multiplier wise I have read that they like uneven numbers, 19, 21, 23 etc. I would drop your multiplier to 21 just so turbo can kick in, I think that if you set it to the max turbo will not work.

What is your ram speed set to?
