Aarrgghh!! Asrock N68PV-GS troubles

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Curse it all! :swearing::swearing::swearing:
I flashed the bios on this thing a few times, trying to find the HT link speed setting, eventually I found the thing, but now it just WILL NOT overclock!

It's on the same BIOS version as it was before. It used to be stable at 14x250, now it just hangs if I try and push the clock past stock. Even the BIOS won't fire up at faster than stock

Time to hunt out a replacement board methinks...

Ok, it's been 24 hours, and I've got some of my clock speed back.
If I leave everything on auto, I can push the FSB to 14x233.
But if I try one manual setting on the CPU, memory or NB, it hangs before the BIOS fires up, and the only remedy is to clear it all.
And I mean ANY manual setting at all. I've tried to set everything manually to stock settings and it still does it.

Bumping this super old thread because I am having the exact same issue with this motherboard.

Seemingly no matter what combination of overclocking settings I try, I just cannot get my computer to even POST, much less boot into Windows. I have a Phenom II X3 740. At stock speeds it has a 15x multiplier. I have tried various settings with the CPU multiplier and northbridge multiplier to no avail.

Speaking of which, I am really confused on some multipliers...I get the base 200 MHz clock that other clocks (e.g. CPU) are based on via multipliers...what I don't get is what my particular motherboard is running at, stock speed and all. CPU-Z says:
Bus Speed is 200 MHz
HT Link is 1000 MHz
NB Frequency is 1600 MHz
DRAM Frequency is 400 MHz

PC Wizard 2010 points out:
NorthBridge Multiplier is 8x (makes sense, 8*200=1600 MHz)
FSB Frequency is 1000 MHz (what? I thought it was 1600 MHz...)

So part of the problem is I'm not sure what the "stock" speed I'm supposed to be basing my overclocking on. The BIOS has options to change the bus speed above 200 MHz, the CPU multiplier, CPU voltage, and "NB Frequency Multiplier". Would the stock settings be 15x for the CPU and 8x for the NB? Why would it cause me to not even reach POST if I alter these settings?

What processor are you using on this motherboard and what RAM? Both have a huge effect on overclockability on this limited board.

Is the RAM a the correct speed & timings?
post #8 of 9
Yes. I have tried setting everything to auto, and tried manually entering the timings from the OCZ spec sheet (4-4-4-15) and speed (800 MHz) and it is the same either way.

And my time to bump this old thread as my girlfriend has a very similar problem on the same board.

The board will not boot without a BIOS reset, and sometimes it won't even do that.

Not sure what it is, as the PSU seems to work fine really, so I'm wondering if anyone has an idea to what it can be? I figured it may be the CMOS battery, but seems a bit odd since it won't even boot at times with a BIOS reset.

Any suggestions as to what it may? The PC has been running fine for ages btw, and also has the latest BIOS.

EDIT: Tried with another PSU and seems to work fine now.
