Maximus V Formula Can't Reset to Default Settings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Have an i5-3570k inside an M5F motherboard. Recently, I've been dealing with cooling issues and I wanted to lower the clock speeds. Sadly, my BIOS settings are being overridden by.......

Well that's just it. I don't know. I had originally used ASUS AI Suite 2 to overclock until I realized what a colossal mistake that was, and I uninstalled it. But not unlike Herpes, it's not so easy. I had been able to clock myself at 4.7 GHz at 1.28 Volts but for some reason my overclock always reverted to 4.6 GHz but I gave up and kept 4.6 GHz. Good enough, right?

I've uninstalled AI Suite 2 and I've run the cleaner utility but something keeps setting my overclock back to 4.6 GHz.

It does not affect my RAM. I can switch it from 2400 MHz 10-12-12-31 to 1333 MHz 9-9-9-24 and back again nice and easy.


Basically, I'm not kidding when I say I CAN'T set my clocks back to stock. I don't know what to do. It's not a BIOS thing because whenever I go look at the UEFI, my multiplier is set to 35 on each core.

What can I do?

You can try resetting the CMOS..
There should be a button somewhere on the IO panel. Hold it in for a couple of seconds.

Alternatively, power off, unplug psu, press the power button on your motherboard untill all lights go out and then carefully remove the tiny battery located on your motherboard.

Leave the battery out for a tiny while (2-5) minutes, then put it back and try powering up again to see if your settings have reset.

I didn't directly take your advice. While I was fiddling with my loop, the CPU popped out of the socket ever so slightly when I was cleaning it, and the motherboard recognized a new CPU. Now the BIOS settings stick.
