The high voltage apeared right after the restart at the POST ( when the first beep ocurs totell you that all is fine ) and it forced me into bios by pressing F1, after that in just a few seconds my pc went off... I did clear CLRCMOS from the back of the case but still the same thing ( it clears the cmos but after i power it on once again it does the same thing, no post, no beep, no image. Can my CPU be dead? On the ROG panel on the front ( the one from the mobo ) it shos me that the CPU has around 32 degrees but down where it should show the bclk frequency, shows 00 ( it should show 100 or 125, mine was at 125 if i remember correctly because of the XMP profile ) and to the core ratio it shows 00 also. Any advice? Could my CPU be dead? Or my MOBO? But why all of a sudden?
Yeah - 00 can mean a fried CPU (assuming there are no bent socket pins). It is not mandatory to update the chipset or bios under optimized defaults... just safer. Some chipset updates are co-dated with a bios update. Should do both in most instances.. why update a chipset and management engine if all is working properly? Anyway, only way to know about the cpu for certain is to test it in anotherMB. Not commonly possible unless there is a shop near you that will do that for you. CPU should be under warranty... that cpu overvoltage warning is a real sphincter relax moment for sure.

Guys, I have a very strange issue with my new Edition 10 (I thought I'd post here as well). I got the board 2 days ago and the build went fine. Board posted first try and I reached BIOS. But here's the problem: The board only recognizes 3 DIMMs out of the 4 and only shows 12 out 16GB of RAM. Trying each slot individually and testing each stick individually worked fine. Even booting with 3 sticks works. As soon as I insert 4 sticks, my PC won't reboot again and hangs with Q-Code "bd" until I clear CMOS.
So, thinking my board was a dud, I returned it to the store today and got a brand new Edition 10. I come home and install everything and bam, same exact issue and symptoms. Only 3 DIMM LED's light up and only 3 sticks are recognized. So I fire up CPU-Z and lo and behold it shows 4 DIMMs and 16GB of RAM. Task Manager however only sees 12GB. This is with 4 sticks installed. I know the RAM kit isn't faulty, it's a 4x4 kit of Trident Z with continuos serial numbers rated at 3200mhz.
It's obviously not the board.. first one included. Make sure the sticks are fully inserted with the lock tabs fully "up" and that you have them in the correct slots according to the manual. Seeing that the same problem occured on two boards.. its is either the ram or a bad IMC on the processor.
Try setting VSa to 1.05V and CPU VCCIO to 1.08V. Maybe the 4 stick will show up. Do youy recall whether it was the same ram channel on both installs? and plz verify that all the dimm switches are in the on position.

yeah - something ain't right. I do not recommend overclocking from within your OS install, but AIS is an easy way to get started for a first timer. You should avoid p95 with this architecture.
