My X5660@3.6ghz, 4930K, and 2670 on Win 10 bounce back and forth between 4000 to 8000. The 8370 on Win10 too, is about 4000 or 8000. Is this what you are observing? Either POGs is loving the 4Ghz clock speed, or maybe using avx2?
Edit: actually the 2670 is on LinuxMint 64-bit.
I am partially thinking on Pogs assigning the tasks depending on the power of the CPU. My laptop gets mostly WUs worth 95-99 credits, which can finish in 5000 seconds. But my 2670, with the same architecture and almost same speed while on turbo, gets mostly WU's that give 190 credits, but take roughly 1.5x as long to complete (6000-8000 secs). My X5650 gets a bit of both, but it tends to get heavier WU's than my laptop. However, it is the only OCed CPU i have, and it finishes tasks faster than my 2670, so maybe it takes architectures into account as well.

Normally it just reboots and runs fine.
This time I went into the BIOS meaning to try and find the off setting for that feature.Still half asleep I clicked on the OC tuner by mistake
It them went into a cycle of powering on briefly for a few seconds, stopping, and doing it again.
I have tried pulling the CMOS battery and using the jumper to try and clear the settings but I'm not getting anywhere.
Now it just powers on, all fans spin, but the Monitor does not come on. I get no beep(s) either.
I have tried different RAM - one module only in every slot.
I have tried removing the graphics card and changing the CMOS battery.
Does anyone have any ideas?
The Motherboard is an ASUS P8Z68-VGEN3 - other parts are in my sig.
I lost 100 PG work units
Man, i know how that feels. Fried my old 4930k while half asleep, as i meant to put 1.38v but added 1.83v. Other than the steps you've taken, i'm out of ideas. Maybe let it rest for a bit without CMOS battery?

To answer the first part, no idea, you exhausted my methods.
Edit: I only ask since I use my boot device as BOINC storage too. The only thing with a separate drive is my whole steam library. 1.5 TBs worth
I don't like to have that many games installed at the same time xD

Hopefully it's just the client pinging or assigning work to my dead GPU (yes, I still haven't dismantled my loop in order to remove it - don't ask)... Otherwise, I'm in for a very
You could try to edit the cc_config file and add a exclude_gpu flag on it so it doesn't assign tasks to it. Not sure if you would be able to download extra tasks to bunker up, but at least it should let you start BOINC.
