Hi guys, great thread, learnt a lot from it

Over the weekend I added a ek-fb re3 waterblock and a Silverstone Strider 1500w psu to my system.

However, I now cannot overclock my system at all, when I change the Ai Overclock Tuner from Auto to Manual and exit the bios, the motherboard gives me the post beep as normal, power to my peripherals (keyboard, mouse etc) but no signal is sent to my monitors.
The only way I can get the motherboard to post properly is to clear the cmos, and everything works correctly at stock settings.

Previously I was running my I7 920 at 4GHz, 1.35V on the Vcore/QPI, 1.2 IOH, never tried anything extreme or out of the ordinary.
CPU is at 35-40oC and NB at 30-35oC, even so I put back the stock heatsink, but the problem remains.
The problem occurs on both bios chips (bios1 = 0802, bios2 = 0901), and when I set voltages manually.
Someone suggested that my CPU may have become damaged, I have bought another i7 920, and the results are exactly the same, no signal to the monitors when I attempt to overclock.
Has anyone else had a similar experience, or any clue as to what is going on?

Many thanks,
Rhia

edit:
Also I have noticed that the motherboard now only detects 4GB of ram, whereas it used to detect 6GB

You should be able to get 200 blck with any R3E regardless though.

I had to change the TIM onmy board, it was running hot. It seems like an ok board, I don't find it fantastic though.
The R3E can push BCLK better than any other motherboard out there. However, if you go above 225, you better have QPI slow mode on because the IOH is generally weak on these boards.

I have never seen an RIIIE stop before 240 in the hands of someone who knows what they're doing.

Anyone here use the GO BUTTON or mess with it?

I've tried to set it so when I push it, it overclocks to a stable 4.2GHz that way I can run a lower clock of 3.6MHz 24/7 then when I need the boost for other things I can just push it.
Anyhow it locks up when I push it?

I know you can't change the Multiplyer just the FSB and voltages with it, Am I missing something?

Big changes don't go over well. If I change the QPI/VTT voltage at all, it locks up. I haven't messed with the GO button stuff though.

Yeah slow mode and running 115 pci-E will get higher blck.

I now too have the sometimes bios and windows show 4 gb when I have 6 gb, out of blue. I haven't touched my heatsink for my cpu or anything.

Maybe my mobo is bending and is causing the ram issue? LoL

When it happens, I have to shut off my psu switch and turn it back on.

I like the board ok, but don't like how alot of peolple are having problems with it. I also had a couple Crosshair IV mobos for AMD that needed NB heatsink attention.

I'm an Asus fan but they better shape up.

I agree with that. It really eeks me that this board is so expensive yet it goes through no binning for the IOH (X58) chip. As soon as I hit 223 BCLK, my 3D scores drop about 30%.

What's up all. I have a RE3 Extreme with 12gb of memory but the bios is only seeing 8gb. CPU-Z also detects 12gb.

Thoughts or ideas?
