I can overclock it in my BIOS but when I restart my computer, the hard drive spins up at 3 second intervals. Sort of like a pulse. If it does load the BIOS, usually on the third try, the message "overclock failed press f1 to enter setup" and "press f2 to load setup defaults."<br>
This is what I have:<br><br>
RAIDMAX 450W PSU<br>
A8R32MVP Deluxe w/ 3200 crossfire<br>
fx-57<br>
2x1GB Geil DDR 3200<br>
WD Raptor 150GB 10000rpm<br>
ATI X1600 Pro 512mb<br>
Onboard Realtek Sound<br>
2 DVD Drives<br>
1 Floppy Drive<br><br>
Is it my PSU? or has someone else had the same problem with this mb/BIOS.<br>
By the way, the BIOS is American Megatrends.

I'm not sure if it is your PSU, but I would recommend upgrading that. Raidmax isn't a very reliable brand IMO unless you want a cheap, tacky, pre-modded PC case. I myself am planning to purchase the SeaSonic M12 600W. SeaSonic is currently making 500-600-700 watt versions of this psu, but there are many other options.<br><br>
Like I said though, I'm not sure if this is a psu problem or not. Maybe you've overclocked too far, which then would be a psu problem I believe. I'll wait and see what the seasoned members here have to say about your problem. A new psu would definately not be a bad idea though.

I did only minimal overclocking but, this is the big thing, I have even had problems trying to use the A.I. NOS system built into the motherboard which is supposed to overclock it only when needed and within limits. It will work for a little bit and then I will get the same message again.<br />
<br />
Is there someone with this motherboard that can relate or has solved the problem?

I had the same problem overclocking mine. Reduced the HTT to 800Mhz and give that a try. Found if the HTT is set to high the m/b can't handle it and won't work
