Hey guys ..
Thanx for the help/recomendations, but sadly, I ran into the same issues as yesterday .. the entering safe mode screen upon re-starting :
Once I used those settings and saved, I had about 10 long beeps from the board, then it shut down and turned back on. A few seconds in, and I got the above screen.
I also had issues starting up at all today, had to clear cmos completly to be even able to post. Also, I can see that my 2 hd's and dvd sata ports are not being reported correctly.
Any other ideas ?? What is this safe mode thing ? Why cant I make changes succesfully ? Also, what is AHCI bios ... do I need to disable this ? Sadly, Im rather a beginner, but Im trying my best here.
Help needed .. would greatly appreciate some explanations and advice. I dont know what else to do. Everything is brand new and I just built this yesterday.
EDIT - was recommended to me to Disable Overclock Recovery in Bios .. tried it, yet now I cant even post, when I restart, the computer beeps nonstop until I power down
RE-EDIT - Thanx to the tireless efforts of McDown (+100 rep to ya bro !!) Im now running stable. No more boot errors, lack of post, or anything. I am stable at 182 bclock x 21x for a speed of 3827ish. However, my cpu volts are a little high at 1.31 at the moment. So im looking for a way to either lower the volts to go easier on the chip, or try for 4.0. Ive tried 185 Bclock, but cannot post (just raised that and left evrything else alone) I dont know what to do at this point, so I'll wait for some responses.
