This video explains all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM_7RdHGJWo
Just read that the reason my computer tries to boot from usb is because it tries to load from one when the bios crashes after I attempt to overclock even if my primary boot device is my hdd

Hi today I tried my first overclock on my i7 930 using the msi big bang with bios. When i used the oc dashboard and I increased the cpu frequency too much the comp would crash. So I tried going to bios and when I increase the cpu base frequency from there to 181 and disable all the uneccesary things like turbo boost, spread spectrum and some Ce something ( dont remember the name). I left hyper thread on though. The comp will start up saying something about booting from my memory stick when my primary boot device is my hard drive. This has been frustrating me for the whole day please help. Ohh yeah and I also dont want to use oc genie since it sets the voltages too high.

PLEASE HELP, THANKS IN ADVANCE :bounce:

*edit Uploaded a video increasing base clock to 167 like JackNaylorPE said but still the same problem heres the link

yes, I have read that I tried it but it says some error about booting from memory stick and my system wont boot. Do you have any idea why this happens when I change the base frequency from 133 to 181? thanks

Change your boot priority. If you can't figure something as easy as this out maybe you shouldnt be overclocking.


In my post I said my primary boot device was set to my hard drive, only when I increase the core clock the message error will show weird huh? It shows for a second and my computer becomes irresponsive but the fans are still running. Also I have to reset cmos to get it to work. I have tried many times with no success and now my computer time is not correct and I cannt sync it with one of the internet time websites. :(

That's one big leap going from 133 to 181 in one shot. What memory do you have ? IS it DDR3-1600 ? If it's DDR3-1333, I'd limit your OC to 167 BCLK.

This is a different BIOS setup but it's great guide

I have read the guide but I do not quite understand it since most of the things mentions are named differently on my bios. Please help.

just curious; do you have a thumb drive or any other storage device in a usb slot? if so, you computer will automatically boot from that and not you boot priority.

hope this helps.
