Asus X99-S (NO-OC) getting 'Overclock Failed' after playing games for few minuites

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Built a PC for a friend with the intention to run 4K Games with these specifications:

Asus X99-S
Intel Core I7 5930K
16GB DDR4 Memory
Corsair H55 CPU Cooler
Asus Matrix GTX 980
1TB Hard Drive
Corsair RM850 PSW
Windows 8.1 Pro 64 Bit

Recently, they have been running into an issue where they will play games and after a few minutes, the PC restarts and comes up with the 'Overclock Failed' message on reboot.

To clarify, this system has NOT been overclocked. I have looked into this issue and have tried to Clear CMOS, Reset Cmos, try single RAM, updated bios, etc but with no luck in resolving the issue.

It may sound ridiculous, but we do have a theory of the fan on the power supply (Corsair RM850) that could be an issue as it does not spin up at all. I am aware that it starts up under a certain load, but it has never seemed to work. They are also running some games from an external USB 3.0 hard drive. Just thought I'd add as much detail as I can as I've been at it for weeks trying to fix this problem.

Here is an Image of what is happening when the system does this:


Any advice or help on this is appreciated smile.gif

Have you checked your CPU temps while in-game? Your theory may be correct about the PSU. Is it new, used? Have you used a different one for testing purposes? I'd say to try and use a different one. If you haven't already, you can try reseating the CPU and then make sure that it is being properly cooled. The last thing I'd suggest would be to try rolling your BIOS back to an earlier version.

Hello,
