Overclocking problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well Asus support said screw off and check some overclocking forums even though the problem is clearly with their motherboard. Asus support gets a from me.
Here is my problem:
So this problem started when I was overclocking. I had put high volts on the NB and
such. I was trying for 4 ghz, Windows loaded and my user profile was loading when it froze on the loading
user settings screen. I restarted to find windows would freeze at loading users screen. I also put all the settings to default with no luck.
I ran chkdsk repair and then the hard drive worked fine again. I hooked up another
hard drive with just pictures and other files on it. It booted fine then I restarted and tried
a moderate overclock 3.6 ghz with pretty low volts (1.2 NB, 1.28 CPU). It loaded my user
profile, I was opening programs but they froze. I restarted to find it was stuck at the
loading users as before. I ran chkdsk on the drive again and it works. If I add my other
drive though it freezes on the loading users.

I want a refund and a Gigabyte board

You don't need to add voltage to your northbirdge until you start pushing 25% overclocks, and even then. I was stable at 3.2Ghz with stock NB voltages, and only when I passed 3.3 did I have to increase it.

Also, define "mild overclock".

It will not boot otherwise so yes my NB voltages needed to be increased. I think that shows that my board is bad

Just another question: what were you doing to your RAM volts? If you went above anything .2V higher than the stock value, you would definitely be seeing reactions like that. Also, how did you get the settings back to stock? Did you actually clear the CMOS, or did you just boot back up and changed them back in the BIOS manually?

Did you do any kind of stability testing?
post #6 of 7
Sounds like you have an unstable overclock and a bad HDD....

Try to overclock a littl at a time and stress test after every change. and reformat that HDD.

It's a good mobo.......why do you think its bad???


ps, I had a giga mobo die in 3 weeks....just bad luck...not bad mobo
