Dont' think that's related. Comp is keeping time fine, except when it travels back in time :/

The whole Reboot>Overclock Failed thing is annoying. My board will do that all the time...sometimes for no apparent reason.

It jumps around depending on the settings. Sometimes even setting lower voltages get rid of it

So that I think may be an asus thing...annoying to say the least.


Your chip being an E8XXX Series, id say stay away from anything past 1.4, even for suicides...These new intels seem quite fragile.

Other than that, maybe a windows corruption? Try a repair from the disc, or even a reinstall if you can (unless you use OEM's like I do...pffft)

Good guess. You were right. And I was a bonehead for installing vista while overclocked. I specifically know not to do that :/ So I installed vista on the rig the first time with the intent to reinstall after I got a stable oc. And I know to revert to stock settings before that second install, but for some reason, I completely forgot and installed oc'd. So after the 3rd vista install using stock settings this time, my system is completely stable at 4GHz. Thanks. rep+
