Motherboard beeping on startup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Not sure what's going on here- i've been overclocking my pc this evening, booted into windows at 4.1ghz fine, temps were a tad high (54cish idle) so I went to turn the voltage down a bit. When I booted (it POSTed) my motherboard kept beeping during the startup and went into system repair telling me windows didn't start properly giving me the option to repair or continue to windows. Is there something wrong with my OC? I'm posting from my PC right now so i'm not sure whats going on. Running with voltage at 1.35v, QPI at 1.37, ram @ 1444 BCLK @ 205x20. it's been fine with MEMtest so far.

Anyone have any idea what could possibly cause this? My first guess would be because of high temps but that shouldn't be the problem since I haven't gone past 69c load so far in Memtest.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

It would be a good idea to pay attention to the beeps and detect a pattern since there are POST codes that would reveal the error(s). Also OCing is a balancing act between voltages that work and temperatures that won't cause self-destruct. Sensors are slow and inaccurate and not placed everywhere which is why some water-cooled systems that don't have at least minimal airflow can be problematic. Find the tradeoff that works for you through incremental changes in speed vs/ voltage and stay cool.
