post #201 of 1767
I've not had that issue with a C2, except after initial settings were applied. I got the usual halt after saving BIOS and exiting... and it didn't boot back up. Flicked the power button after about 10 minutes, and all has been fine since. None of those guys have C1E enabled, do they? That's the only thing I can think of, something like a possibility of an incorrect state stored or something. Doesn't even really make sense in that aspect to me, I'm just taking a stab in the dark.

Just a curious question..my new MOBO isnt gonna be here till tomorrow but I just noticed in one of the pic's for it that it comes with the 8-pin power plug at the top and 4 of them are covered with a small cap, when I hook everything up should I plug in the 8-pin from my PSU or just one 4 pin? just curious is all..dont wanna take any chances xP

You use the 8-pin motherboard connector on your power supply. Motherboard companies tend to cover up 4 of the pins for whatever reason.

Sub50hz - thanks for the reply.

It is an odd thing. We can pass all stress tests etc... and if we do a restart everything is fine, but as soon as we shut it down (w/NB @ 2.8 or higher) it won't boot when it's turned back on. If we downclock to 2.6 or lower it is fine, shuts down and powers back on without a problem, but 2.8 on the NB just flat out won't boot from a powered off system.

So, we are wondering if it's the board, or the CPU, therefore we have asked in a couple of other MOBO threads to see if anyone else is experiencing this.

As of now, we only know of it happening with the C3 chips.

Thanks again.

Now I'm interested, Marc. Let us know if the same issue arises with the C2 chips... sounds like it could just be a mobo problem, though.
post #207 of 1767
If we could get someone with a C3 to try setting the NB to 2800, shut it down, let sit a minute, and then power back on, if it won't post, then I'm pretty sure it's a chip thing. A bunch of us in the GD70 thread push our NB's pretty hard, and we're all seeing this w/ C3's, well maybe not all, but all that have checked so far.

They will run fine @ 2800+, but just won't cold boot over 2600.

Thread Starter 
Ill give mine a try this weekend, i have a c3. if mine does it aswell then it is not a mobo specific issue. however the opposite is also possible.

Now I'm interested
I agree, let us know what the findings are at the end of the day. I have only had mine up to 2400 last night. will push it though and see what happens.
