Curious issue following asus x99 system overclock - audio related crashes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm running the following system: Asus X99-S motherboard, i7 5820K (cooled with a corsair H110), G Skill Ripjaws 4 F4-2666C15Q RAM (16gb), Gygabyte G1 Gaming GTX970, Crucial CT512MX100 SSD with windows 7. Everything is fully updated including the BIOS.

The system had been running smoothly for a couple of months with no overclocking. As I am relatively new to overclocking so I thought I would start by checking out the 5-way optimization process that asus includes with its motherboard. I read that it doesn't provide the best overclocks but I thought it would be useful to start with before going manual. After running the 5-way optimization (which seemed to go smoothly with temps remaining below 60) I encountered a strange issue: Every time I use a program that uses sound, it initially run OK for up to a minute but then crashes, including the windows audio (volume control etc.). Windows and all programs not using sound continue to run without any problems. Once this has occured the computer cannot shut down properly (although if I do not use any programs that use sound, the computer will shut down without problems). A 'force shutdown' is required because the windows log-off sound will not close, and finally the computer hangs on the shutting down screen. If I manually restart, my BIOS tells me there was an over-clocking issue and I am directed to the BIOS setup.

So far I have tried the following: Resetting the BIOS with no overclocking, reinstalling the entire OS, checking the SSD for errors (none found), checking the RAM for errors (none found), running a CPU stress test while not overclocked (no problems so far).

Does anyone have any ideas? I'd be very grateful for any help. I'm wondering if it's a motherboard sound issue...

Thanks for reading!

It would've been easier to know what the problem was before re-installing windows.. I'm sure most people will tell you to stay away from overclocking software.
