Overclocking Failure i5 2500K

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hey

just finish building my new rig recently, having this really strange problem.

Sometimes when i boot up from comp, either a cold boot or just a reset, i get an overclocking error telling me to go into the bios and fix the problem..

this is under stock speed, using a p8p67 deluxe mobo... with a Silver arrow cooler.

Been seeking help at the air cooling section, they all reckon that my temps are normal which is around 35 C on idle.

Wondering is it the bios thats giving me errors or do i need to resit my cooler and reapply my thermal paste

Can you please add specifications about your computer in your signature please..

This is generally an indicator that a piece of hardware has failed the bios hardware test at start up, OR that the computer was shutdown while the computer was running, though, it can be something like a badly coded BIOS...

Furthermore, updating your bios can often relieve this problem, but this is dangerous if you don't know what you are doing, so make sure you fully understand HOW to properly flash/update a bios BEFORE you choose to do so!

Go to your motherboard's manufacturer's website and download the BIOS update, usually it is a ROM file (You will see ROM in it's name), the MFG may also offer software for updating your BIOS as well, which ever method you choose, make sure that you understand the dangers of updating a BIOS, if for any reason the computer fails during this process you most likely will lose your BIOS & have an inoperable computer!

Considering this is an i5-2500k, then I doubt that you will be able to get a BIOS update so soon, furthermore, you should talk with Technical Support from the Manufacturer of your motherboard to get help, they can help you better & come up with a solution, something none of us can do, for if the problem is in fact BIOS related, then they are the ones who need to be aware of it...

Did you previously try to overclock and then go back to stock settings? If so do what kevink82 said and clear CMOS as you might have missed a setting when going back to stock.

Try enabling "Boot from PCI-E". Seems to fix it for a bunch of people on HardOCP's forums. Lol

Is 2500k at stock now? I saw you have P8P67 Deluxe but you specs 6GB, so you 2x2 and 2x1? If it is, then use 2x2 or 2x1 give it a try.
