Why does my computer do this?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I tried the optimal setting on the ASUS BIOS and booted my computer and it overclocked the i7 2600K to around 4.1-4.2. Everything was peachy until in shut my computer down. The next time i booted it up, the monitor wouldn't come on and i believe the red light next to the memory was illuminated. There was nothing i could do so I just turned it off with the power switch. Waited a little while then turned it back on and it fired up then shut itself off, then booted itself back on, then back off, then on the third time it finally booted up and into windows. And yes I'm aware of the P67 chipset defect. I have the ASUS P8P67 EVO. What gives? Why did it do that? Have I already screwed up my computer?

First, post your system specs in the User CP so all the info that we need is available.

Secondly, what SATA port do you have your hard drive plugged in? It shouldn't be failing already, but if it is, the SATA 6Gb/s are not affected.

It's not stable - simple as that. Reset your BIOS and start over.

You used an automated overclocking function on the BIOS?

Which BIOS/EFI are you using? The original BIOS shipped with these had some pretty spotty memory compatibility issues / issues.

It sounds like it overclocked your RAM past stability.

EFI didn't recognize my my ram on the shipped bios (4gb was missing)... sounds like a ram compatibility issue... or what atomicfrost said...

Well I haven't had time to sit down and follow a guide and I just wanted to see what it could do.

just up the turbo core to something saine like 43x don't touch anything else... should be stable... mine is up to 44x but after that you have to offset the vcore...

oh and make sure you have good cooling

I can't really speak for sandybridge since it's not something I've OC'd but automated programs that OC for you are all terrible. The only exceptions being tools like SetFSB for changing bits while in windows, even that I feel is only needed for more advanced OCs like suicides.

I don't see sandybridge being that much different.


Hell, my board decided my CPU would need 1.4V to be stable on 3.6GHz...
