Hello, i am new here and I come to seek for your guidance.
I have a 680i LT combined with the famous q6600 and yesterday somthing terrible happened!
As I was scrolling down an old thread about the 680i LT, I took the p31 BIOS for the 680i, since everyone was so hyped about how much stabillity it added to the LT. I have flashed my board before with the p07, the p08 and the p33 and there were no problems, except me not getting the system stable.
So I decided to try out the p31 and when the command prompt appeared, it asked me to add the /F option at the end to flash the new BIOS, even if its not for this board.(otherwise the number mismatch will appear)
So I did, adn i was able to get the system stable at 3.3 for the first time!
Futurmark pass, IBT 10 iliterations pass, 2 hours of OCCT pass!
So i was too happy with those resoults and decided to enjoy my pc for the first time in months.(sorry if I explain too much
but i desperately need help!)
After 4 hours of browsing and music, I fired up CSS to test the gaming stabillity and within 2 minutes of game the whole system shuts down completely! This never happened to me before. Usually if it's not stable, it will bSOD, or freeze but never shut down.
I immediately switched back to p08, becouse i got scared and now I'm in a hole because the same thing is happening no matter what clock i put in.
It will shut off right after the futuremark test begins.
I've done the pencil mod and i suspected that it could be a problem but, I tested the system with the mod for a whole day before i installed the p31 and if it wasn't stable, it bSODed, but never shut down.
Any suggestions on what the problem might be?
I'll continue to try, but I'm in a very serious trouble. It's time to hear from the experts in here.
Thank you in advance and sorry for the trouble!
