PC Restarting, Can't overclock

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My PC when I turn it on keeps restarting... The keyboard comes on then turns off a few times well the screen stays black then it finally boots to windows... When I first had it built 4 weeks ago, It would turn on, show the Motherboard screen then boot. The person who built it had overclocked the CPU so I went into the motherboard and lowered it back to stock. I bought a new cooler and want to over clock now that I have a water cooler but the mother board wont let me into the BIOS... When I try to you Intel XTU software form windows that wont let me overclock either.

I have a Asus p8z68-v and a Core i7 2600k, Graphics card is a 980ti...

Can I just pull the battery out of the mother board and then putt it back in a minute later? Dose this sound like my comos got corrupted or something? I'm not the most tech savvy person when it comes to custom building.

If anyone could give me advice it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yes, taking the cmos battery out will reset the bios. Although I'd recommend having your friend do the overclocking for you if you don't know what you're doing. Good luck.

I have some knowlage on overclocking. I just wanted to make sure if I take out the battery it wont screw anything up? I'm worried it would require drivers or something after I do it? Once I putt the battery back in my pc should boot fine right? Thank you

You'll be fine. It just resets the bios to the factory settings.

So I reset my Mobo, it prompted me to "set up" I just chose to boot from my ssd. Then it did the same thing and didn't show the Mobo screen. I thought of something which was to just unplug the HDMI which is hooked to my tv, and it worked, I was able to get back into my Mobo. I went into mu Mobo and set it to allow ratio changes to be made from my OS. I logged back on and opened Intel Xtu, I set it to a low overclock, and bam supper high temps.... I thought with the new water cooler that maybe it wouldn't go past 80C so I clocked it to 42 x ratio which isn't even extreme for a water cooled i7 2600k.... I ran the stress test and in less then a minute my cpu was hitting 98C so I immediately stopped the test. Please keep in mind my ambient is VERY Low right now because I've opened the window behind the Pc and it is -20c out right now. I'm going to post a new thread in the intel CPU section. I don't know what the hell is up with this computer, I'm getting 50 fps playing crysis 3 in 1080p.... I didn't spend a thousand dollars on a graphics card so I could have heating problems playing games at medium settings.

What CPU voltage are you running at stock and light overclock
Also what CPU cooler are you using currently and what was your previous CPU cooler?

Right now i have a really light overclock on. Im running boost to 3876mhz my V are maxing out at 1.384 I'm reading the I7 2600k can hit 4.2 ghz with 1.2 v abd run great. People online say to set the V to - .05 but im not used to overclocking from the mobo

3876 MHz with 1.384 voltage is way too high for that overclock. Try getting it to something lower like 1.20v. That high voltage explains the CPU temperature issue.
