The ASUS/ASrock P55 and X58 Club & Discussion(Under construction) - Page 25

post #241 of 329
yeah its fine. it reset everything to default and i had to redo my overclock profiles. no biggie. also had to set my windows install to primary hdd again. I havent tested overclocking past 3.8ghz to see if I can get farther with the newer BIOS yet.
post #242 of 329
Guys, my system just quit overclocking on me, after 4 months of rock solid 4ghz performance. My old posts with my BIOS settings are in this same thread dated 11/18/09 for reference. One night last week, I was defragging a 1tb SATA drive located in an Argosy media box via a USB connection. It was taking a long time, so I left the system on overnight to finish. I've had the system running overnight a lot without any problems previously. Anyway, when I checked on it the next morning, it was frozen solid without any video and requiring a hard re-set. Now the system will not overclock at any of the EZ OC settings from 3.6ghz to 4.0ghz. It won't even get past post to even attempt to load Windows. I have all settings at default and the system does overclock itself depending on load by upping the mulitplier to 21x for 2.8ghz. That seems to work OK and the system overall works fine at the default settings. Anybody ever have a problem like this? Is it possible that something on the motherboard failed due to heat from the USB defrag? Thanx in advance.

Leaving settings at auto will cause the bios to set much higher voltages then normally needed for stability. It's possible that overvoltage of some component may have damaged something. Worst thing, you probably don't even know what the actual voltages were.
I'd do a proper checkup of your hardware. Maybe start with your DDR ram.
Check your mainboard for burnmarks (however small) or damaged/capacitators.
Do a thourough memtest.

EDIT :

It could just be your cpu throttling due to excessive heat.
To test that, use Coretemp together with prime95. Have them both opened and start a blend or large FFT torturetest with prime95.
Watch your temps in coretemp, and and if they get above 90C your cpu will probably start throttling. If you get a freeze or bsod, you probably have an unstable oc that needs to be corrected asap and by manually setting speeds and voltages.

Yeah, I sent an email to Asrock tech support and they immediately responded with an authorization for an RMA replacement. No questions asked. All my voltages were fine on the EZ OC automatic settings, except the CPU and the bump wasn't much. EZ OC didn't block out the voltage; it just set them per an Asrock predetermined and tested setting, all easily verifiable. The max temp range for all the cores with Prime large FFT or OCCT small data set was in the high 60's to low 70's. It would go like that on those tests for hours. With 8 threads loaded, none of the cores would ever get over 75. Like I said, the system was rock solid for 4 months and then, poof, right after the overnight USB drive defrag. No small conincidence probably about the USB drive defrag. Interesting that Asrock thinks that some part of the board may be fried and didn't hesitate to offer a replacement. I was just bringing this up here in the forum wondering whether or not anyone else has ever experienced or heard of anything similar. Thanx for the quick reply.

I just had to RMA some bad ocz ram. Butt never had a faulty board yet.

Good for you you can RMA it.

True that. I haven't had to rma a motherboard in years. But, I've had to rma ram probably more than any other single component. PSU's would come in 2nd for me, then vid cards. What a pain...

Yeah.
Especially ram specs are way too complicated for decent compatibility now a days.
