HELP! maximus extreme overheating?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
specs in sig:

Here's my problem. I'm always messing with my computer so ya, I'm always messing it up. Anyway, I decided I was going to try and run two separate loops (one for gpu one for CPU and NB). Everything installed fine and when I booted my temps were a little better (3-4c lower on cpu) not bad I guess. Anyway I woke up this morning after leaving my comp on all night and it was frozen. I am overclocked pretty high so I thought ok I'll shut it down and double check some bios settings, well it wouldn't boot. Now on the maximus extreme it has LEDs for overheat ie.. yellow for warning and red for "somethings jacked up" or too hot lol. So when I boot the red leds were on so I touched all my heatsinks and they weren't even warm. The only way I can get it to boot is by unplugging it and letting it sit for about ten minutes but then when I boot I have to reset the bios settings. I'm running raid so I have to go into the bios and set it for raid, I can do that but once it restarts after I save the settings my LEDs are RED AGAIN??? how could it be overheating just by being in the bios for a couple seconds? I'm not even making it to windows?? can anyone help?

Did you try the CMOS reset button on the back or just pop the battery out for a second?

The red LED's do NOT mean its too hot. I assume you are talking about the ones that are a strip of three by varius components. Green for normal stock levels, yellow for a high overclock/change in settings and red for an extreme change.

If you have many red led's lit up on your board I seriously suggest you turn down your settings. Otherwise you are likely to cause damage. Im guessing your pumping way too many volts thro things. Reset cmos and try running at stock. If it wont work at completly stock settings then you have damaged your board somehow.

Just to say again. The led's all over the board do NOT indicate temperature. They indicate the level of change your bios changes have affected the board. Green for normal, yellow for high and red for crazy (as read straight off my maximus formula). If you have any reds it because of too higher voltage most likely. Run at stock.

I reset all my bios to default levels.. that was first thing I did when this happened (common sense ) but the leds are still red when I boot, it'll boot if I unplug it and let it sit for about 10 min but locks up when loading windows
