Sounds like you might have damaged the CPU or the motherboard. What about the other part of my above post? Are you getting any errors or is it just displaying that message and then going on to boot correctly?
The PC will not boot into Windows 7 any longer. I finished this build about three weeks ago and everything was fine. Went into BIOS to see if I could change settings to get my RAM to run at 1600MHz speed rather than the default 1333MHz. Honestly, didn't know what I was doing, but thought I could figure it out. Made some changes and the PC shut down on it's own. It would then restart for just a few seconds, then shut down again. It repeated this process 3-4 times before I shut it down for good.
Afterwards, I discovered the CPU was having some heat issues. Namely, it was idling at 65°C. worked with some new thermal compound Artic 5 and reapplied TC and reinstalled stock HS several times but could never get the temp down. Just installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and CPU temp is now down to 45°C.
Also, I have flashed the BIOS to the most recent update for my MB (Intel DZ68BC). BIOS seems to be fine, all settings are back to default, but cannot boot to Windows at all. It auto runs Windows repair, but the repair is unsuccessful. Not sure what to do from here and any help is appreciated.
