Help required, bizzare problems! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
From OP:

"I've reset the CMOS once yeah, I don't usually like doing it too many times, I've always found it can mess stuff up!"

Thats not my experience and maybe only once or twice have I ever seen a similar complaint on this site. If done with patience and good lighting resetting the BIOS or removing the battery rarely does any harm.
If it bricked I would lean toward a bad motherboard or simple human error.

A BIOS reset DOES however neccessitate review and adjustment of certain BIOS default settings for your specific components but that is usually the only snag.

As to your various problems you have discribed, I would agree that it is probably just one thing and I would be looking for a common denominator, too. Let me state that I have no hands-on i7/Sabertooth expertise but one thing you might try is disabling any power saving features or throttling and manually fix and increase vcore to 1.27 or so. I realize this may incur a flood of contradictions from many but it's worth a shot.

Or you might consider adjusting Vdroop, a known problem issue on most ASUS boards. Vdroop reduces Vcore fluctuations as the processor load changes, but also reduces stability, requiring a higher idle voltage.

So, obviously I think an undervolted thus unstable CPU could cause all the problems you are seeing. Good Luck.

That's not true, really. Resetting the CMOS is one of the safest methods of diagnosing a problem caused by an incorrect BIOS value/setting. If you reset the CMOS and then go into Windows at all stock settings, see if it works.

I've tried almost everything, looks like I'm going to have to take the battery out or RMA the motherboard or something! Damn this sucks! Should all work!

Have you verified that your RAM timings and voltage are set correctly in BIOS? Should be 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5V from what I am reading.

Yeah definitely set the ram up properly. I don't get it :/ maybe there's a fault with me board.

I would run memtest for a few hours and maybe do a few other things first, but go ahead and RMA your motherboard. Hopefully ASUS will have a replacement for you quickly.
