Hi guys.

When i come to overclock it takes a very long time to get anywhere with it because every time it fails it takes a good 20 minutes before it will successfully boot again. During this time the PC will turn on but my monitor won't pick anything up, then after a while it will come on then go off again (for ~1 second) then come on automatically and boot properly.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

fail overclock... you need clear cmos or drop your overclock.

Surely failed Oc. When overclocking only increase fsb little by little, increase the vcore[by a bit], and check the temps.
For now, restore default settings, then attempt to oc again- reasonably.

With some systems, some delay is normal. Gigabyte motherboards generally need 5 - 10 secs to find a bootable configuration. The older Asus motherboards required you to clear the CMOS RAM. I do not know what AsRock does.

I know that 20 minutes seems excessive.

Reset your CMOS switch and see if that helps/=.

Thanks for the replies guys. Yeah i knew it was because of a failed overclock, sorry i wasn't more clear. I just wondered why it took so long to be bootable again. Also yeah i have been raising things only little by little but it still takes a very long time to reboot properly.
