There are 2 ways to do this. One, you can simply go to your BIOS and at the home section of your BIOS, there should be a shortcut on the side that says "Load Defaults". Click that, then exit and save. You can also go to the "save and exit" section, where a load defaults option should also be available. If you're having trouble navigating your BIOS for what ever reason (though I don't see why you're having trouble in the first place, your mobo has one of the simplest BIOSs I've ever seen going off of Images from the net), you can take out the CMOS battery and unplug your computer. It looks like this: http://www.technodify.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/cm... This will reset everything in your BIOS.

ok thx but the shorcut on the side says load defaults didnt load my default insead i used the save and exit section where it also has the load default one worked but after i exit and saved my comp shut off and then restarted is this normal?

Yes. Some settings require the PC to be powered off in order to change. Can I ask why you want to get rid of your overclock though? A slight overclock of 4.2GHz for the 4670k yields amazing results and is enough for it to flex its true muscles. Why would you get rid of it? The stock cooler can handle it no problem.

i was getting blue screens

i set it back to normal it was 3.5ghz but i set the cpu ratio to 3.8ghz and then back to default now my cpu is going from 3.6 to 3.7

also can i just set the cpu ratio to 4.0ghz and let it auto voltage i am new to OC and i saw a vid on oc and used the setting for 1year now i am getting problems

Yes, the clock speeds you're getting is normal. Your CPU runs at 3.4GHz and boosts up to 3.8GHz. Intel uses turbo boost technology which means that when only 1 core needs to run fast, it will run at 3.8GHz. When only 2 need to run fast, it will run at 3.7GHz. When 3 or all 4 need to run fast, it will run at 3.6GHz. When under light load across 1-4 cores, the CPU speed should be anywhere between 1.6-3.8GHz fluctuating constantly.

As for your overclock, have you tried bumping up the voltage? The stock voltage is around 1.15v. You should try bumping it to 1.25v at 4.2GHz and your problems should go away. I wouldn't use auto voltage as it's very inconsistent. Every CPU is different and needs different amounts of voltage for every clock speed. Some CPUs can do 4.2GHz at the default voltage, and some need something crazy like 1.3v to pull off 4.2GHz. It all depends on how good your silicon is. 1.25v should be enough for most CPUs out there, it seems like most people can pull it off at around 1.2-1.25v.

As for testing to be stable, you should download and run Prime 95 and realtemp. There's a "blend" test in Prime 95 that tests a lot of parts of the CPU. It's good to let it run for atleast 4 hours, so you can just let it run overnight while you sleep or something. realtemp will monitor your temperatures. It will tell you your minimum, maximum, and current temperatures. For that speed at that voltage, anything under 95c is safe (max safe temp is 105c), though if you want to get every last minute of lifetime out of your CPU, don't let it pass 85c at that voltage. The higher the voltage, the less heat tolerance the CPU will have.

Yea I stable tested my CPU for 24 hours like 2 times it was under at like max 84C but now I started to get blue screen some reason after 1 year and I was scaryed so I put it back to default I used this vid to OC http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PgNU4YvS8oU it was all good until last week I got system expection not handled and then next week WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124) and another one of whea sometime ago. I might OC it back to 4.2ghz and upper the voltage to but I am very scared if my CPU will get fried.

The video of the 101 overclock voltage was 1.18 I am guess that is way to low but my room temp was like 88 degrees
