P8P67 Evo issues

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently purchased a new P8P67 Evo to use in conjunction with the rest of my Sandybrige build (i7 2600, 8gb CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9, 6950).
After assembling the system, I had attempted to power it on. The system powered on then soon after powered itself off. After a few frustrated attempts of trying to get it to power on, I resorted to the 'MemOK' button. Using this button, I can actually have the system power on. Soon after the system powering on, I am faced with a message which instructs me to go into the BIOS, save the memory settings, and reboot. After doing this, I am faced with 'Overclocking failed!'. This is despite the fact that I haven't, nor did I ever, overclock the CPU.

I have tried the following to rectify the situation:

- Clearing CMOS a few dozen times
- Different DDR3 RAM (which have a different set of timings and are on the QVL for this board)
- Individual DIMMs in all 4 slots
- Reseating all hardware
- Moving my video card to another PCIe slot (was suggested in another forum)
- Defining the timings manually in the BIOS
- Booting with only the bare essentials
- Updating the BIOS to the latest version (1305)
- Enabling Power on w/ PCI-E
- Numerous other things which I have read around the forums

I simply cannot get this message to disappear. If I am to go into the BIOS and manually boot from my hard drive, all works fine.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can rectify this issue? I'm very close to RMA.

Thanking you in advance.

We had a server in our computer shop for 2 years that would randomly display an "Overclocking failed" message. The setup was using an ASUS mobo and I'm almost 100% positive it was a faulty motherboard because NOTHING fixed it. It would only do it one out of every 30 boots or so. We just ignored it...

Wish I could be more help. Only other thing I would suggest trying would be a different PSU. You could also check the voltages on each line on your PSU, but this only helps on really bad power issues. The real test would be under load and load testers are $$$$$.

Does it still boot up after that message is displayed? I've gotten that on the board I'm using with my Core2Duo... I just ignore it. My temp. sensors are messed up though, so that might be what's causing my issue.

Remove your gpu and ram and replace them then try again. My friend has this exact same problem and after he does this he is able to boot just fine. He's using the Sabertooth P67.

He stated that he reseated all hardware.

I'm starting to feel the same way about this board. I just want to ensure I've covered everything before I request RMA.

The PC will boot up and run absolutely fine if I go into the BIOS after this message is displayed, go into the boot menu and select a boot device.

Unfortunately, I've done this multiple times. I've even gone as far as putting in a different GPU entirely (originally I had a 6950 in there, now a GTX 275 is sitting in the board)

Guys, I RMA'd my board today. I quite literally ran out of things to try. Even if I was able to get it going, I don't think I'd feel comfortable using a board that is clearly plagued with multiple issues. I'm hoping to get my hands on the MSI equivalent. Thanks for your help.
