UEFI Bios not saving voltage/overclock settings.

Whenever I change the voltage my bios doesn't save the overclock and voltage that I set. I have no idea why this is happening. It will reboot about twice before posting, and whenever I check my bios, the settings that I have done have been reverted.

Is it safe to keep the voltage on auto, or should I need to actually change the voltage.

I am trying to obtain 4.5~4.7ghz overclock for my CPU, so I would guess that auto would not be recommended, and if so, how do I make it so bios keeps the settings for the voltage and clock speeds?

  1. It sounds like it's having trouble booting at your chosen settings so it restarts and goes back to something that works.

    Well I have set my voltage to 1.25v - 1.3v and it has reverted back each time, though whenever I set it to auto it works okay... any ideas on what I should do?
  3. what equipment are you using? Motherboard, CPU, Ram, PSU, GPU, ect...

    I agree with Jack's assessment of the situation. What you are setting the Bios to is unbootable and it is reverting back to a safe setting.
  4. Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    !2GB Ram (4gb G.Skill DDR3 1600mhz, 8gb Corsair Vengeance DDR 3 1600mhz)
    530w PSU
    GTX 760 GPU
    Core i5 3570k

    I have the latest bios.

    I set the voltage to auto and ran Prime95 and it BSOD.
    Edit: The voltage before it BSOD was 1.4v, which is way to high.

    Edit: I don't know much about UEFI Bios, so if any one could help with that, that would be nice.
  5. I currently have my bios settings set to something similar to this thread

    except my voltage is at 1.315 @ 4.5Ghz, are the settings that are shown in those pictures acceptable with my adjust to voltage and clock speed? Currently running Prime 95 and I am getting an average about 77~80 celcius

    What works for some will not work for others. Each piece of electronics will OC differently and it has been this way for ever. I would use his settings as a start and adjust from there to get stable. Just because he reached a clock does not mean that your equipment although the same exact pieces will reach the same clocks. But you may also find that you may be able to go over what he can, its all luck of the draw. OCing is a lot of playing with settings and testing each time. And to find the max can take weeks or months to find. You have found a guide But it is just that, a guide, and will vary with each person.

    no one can say that their clocks will definitely work on your equipment because of the manufacturing process produces variables in each chip. So no one here can say that the settings you have found in that guide will work for you. You just need to try and find out. IF they don't then tweak a setting and retest.
