I've got an overclocked system that seems to be misbehaving.
When trying to boot up from cold the system just hangs and nothing is output to the screen. Fans are on as they should but nothing happens to finish the boot. From here I have to switch it off then on again and the boot completes.
If I go into the tweak menu in the BIOS I'm informed that a boot has failed
I've been in touch with Overclockers UK support a bit and theres not yet been a solution. We've mainly been tweaking the voltage for the CPU.
I'm new to Overclocking which is why I got a bundle with OCUK. With this issue happening on Cold Boot too its tricky to test as I have to make a change then wait till the next day.
My system is here:
Intel Core i7 930 2.80Ghz overclocked to 4GHz
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R (BIOS Version: FC)
Power Supply - CoolerMaster Silent Pro M series 700W
One suggestion made by OCUK was that maybe its the power supply but I'm not sure and dont have a spare - it's brand new and a pretty expensive piece of kit. Any thoughts on this? Other recomendations for Power?
Hmm thats strange. Have you updated your BIOS recently?
Also I have an idea! As you increase your blck, you may need to increase voltages for other things like QPI. I'm not too familiar with BIOS settings on the Gigabyte mb's but if theres an option for QPI voltage, you should definitely bump that up to around 1.3+ volts and see if you can catch a boot. If you do than thats awesome! But stress test heavily and see if you can lower voltages elsewhere. Lemme know what happens please, I'm interested.
