overclock problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
so my temps have been good with an overclock of 3.0ghz for my q6600. so i wanted to try a bit more. i know it is a huge jump and a dumb thing to do but i went straight to 3.6ghz. I have booted before at 3.6ghz, but it failed quickly. my ambient temps have been cold, and the thermal grease has seated so i wanted to try again. well all my computer does now is turn on, the fans go (including gpu fans, idk if that means i get that far in post or not) then it restarts. my monitor does not pick up any signal. It will restart over and over again until turn it off. nothing comes up on the screen. i have taken out the batter and used the jumper to clear the cmos. all it does is restarts. what have i done? the specs are below.

Clear cmos again but unplug 20/24 pin connector from motherboard and 4/8pin from motherboard, remove battery if that dont work call gigabyte support

right on the money... you need to get your BIOS back to default and do a lotta work all over again.... sorry. So clear your CMOS by taking out the battery waiting 60 seconds. Shorting the right jumper pins or opening them to get into BIOS maintenance . Reset to defaults or just tweak your VID and Vcore to get stable on 3.6 (i think close to around 1.24-1.27 for VID and roughly 1.42 -1.46 for the Vcore) also check you NB if it is stable to be at 3.6...

i have cleared the cmos again and nothing. it turns on fans go and then it restarts. If i tell them i was overclocking will they still help me?

is there a chance i did something to my cpu? should a put a different one in and test it?

Take a look at your Motherboard manual. there will probably be a jumper there which can alternate between normal recovery and maintainance mode. try and find it. ill try and hunt online for a solution... gimme a few minutes

not much chance of you damaging your CPU if you are saying that temps were alright and such.

did you keep the CLR_CMOS jumper shorted for a minute or so....

Take out battery, then short the +ve and the -ve terminals for like 10 secs to clear cmos thoroughly.... make sure power is off when you take out battery....

with the battery out short CMOS jumpr to clear .... then plug in battery..... wait for another minute....

try turning it on again....may the force be with you young sky-walker....

and dont panic too quickly man.... like hitchhikers guide to the galaxy tells you not to....

dont tell support ppl you were overclocking tell them you were changing some normal settings in the BIOS when you suddenly lost power or some yarn like that. 99 % youve made an incorrect BIOS setting. Did you change vcore and vID when you go upto 3.6...?

It seems like it's just a bad overclock. I would set the jumper to clear for a couple minutes, and disconnect all power from the board, and even pull the battery. Patience is good . Just give it a couple minutes to fully reset.
