"Overclock Failure"

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got this message when booting up my system this morning. The build is three weeks old - Sabertooth P67, Intel i5-2500k, CM Hyper 212+ cooler (sig rig). I used the UEFI BIOS Performance setting, which gave it an overclock to 4.3 GHz. Its been fine and stable, though I didn't test it as long with Prime95 as I should have. Ran about 52c under full load. With the sleep-resume issue, I mostly just left it running. Did shut it off a few times and never had much trouble on boot up. Shut it down last night and when I booted it this morning, I got the "overclock failure message" Went into BIOS and switched it to the standard setting (stock clock) and it booted fine.

Tried a Google search on this and found a whole host of various answers. Hoping someone can provide a bit of insight.

Thanks.

Sounds like you were tinkering on the lower end of the voltage required to keep up the OC. Dial it up a little and you should be fine, every chip is different. This is another reason why you should never use those stupid built-in automatic overclocking tools.

Thanks, I'll try that. I never intended to stick with the auto-OC... but it was working so I just never got back to messing with it.

have a simular issue with my board... would get random bsod's even after 4hours of prime95 with a load temp of 55c dialed it down to stock and is running fine

I don't know some boards just seem to like to do that once every so often, it's not necessarily your overclock although it can be. For example my overclock is very stable, no problems folding bigadv for weeks or stress tests, in fact I've been stable 24/7 at 4.6Ghz but dialed it back and I still get it happening once in a while regardless of whether I bump up my voltages. Check stability (particularly as you used an auomatic overclocker - never do that btw) and if it's not that I wouldn't worry too much, when it happens just go into the bios and then exit and it'll restart just fine.

Sometimes your voltage is too low and you just don't realise it or it wasn't detected by any of the stress testing. Not only that even when I've had a stable overclock first thing in the morning it would take 2 attempts for the PC to boot. Just put it down to the cost of doing overclock and don't worry about it too much.
