Troubles with motherboard/CPU

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently finished my new rig and everything is great apart from some problems with either the motherboard or the CPU. PC build is in sig.


1. When I turn the PC on, it's supposed to beep and then start outputting video. The first time I start my PC up everyday, it doesn't beep and the screen stays blank until I turn it off again. I have to turn it off by holding the power button and then turn it back on again. Only then does it start up properly.

2. After having to start up in this manner, the POST screen says that the overclock has failed (this is a stable 4.5ghz OC according to IntelBurn Test). Each time I have to go into the setup screen and simply hit the save and reset button, after which the PC finally boots into Windows.

3. Finally, on the POST screen, the CPU speed never shows that the CPU is overclocked. It simply says the stock 3.3ghz, even if I restart after the initial fail boot of the day. However, CPU-Z shows that the processor is running at 4500mhz constantly. Is this a case of the overclock simply not being applied till the system boots fully, or is it a genuine issue? The POST screen shows the RAM as being overclocked on startup.


These issues aren't a massive inconvenience, it's just that I feel like my brand new £800 PC isn't running properly

If anyone can help with any of these issues, that would be great.


EDIT: BIOS version is 1305

If you reset BIOS and the problem goes away, then there's something in your OC that the board doesn't like. I'd say try backing everything off just a bit and see if that doesn't help.
