Core i7 build problem... Tags: New Build Systems Last response: January 23, 2010 3:24 PM in Systems Share sonny21004 January 23, 2010 9:54:35 AM Hey everyone, Just finished building my new system yesterday, I'm using it to type this message! My problem is, when I turn off the system, and try to turn it back on, it turns on, but turns off straight away...many times! But somehow it eventually boots and I can use it. I even managed to overclock to 4Ghz! Well, when it decide to boot lol What could be the problem? I spent nearly £1.6K on this, and to see it do something like that is heartbreaking!

Please help! I need this PC to replace my old Intel Q6600 build! Thanks in advance, Sonny More about : core build problem jsc January 23, 2010 11:04:27 AM There's probably something wrong with your overclocking settings. If you reset the BIOS to factory defaults, does it still repeat the behavior? sonny21004 January 23, 2010 3:24:57 PM jsc said:There's probably something wrong with your overclocking settings. If you reset the BIOS to factory defaults, does it still repeat the behavior? Yep, I've tried quite a few things, update bios, clear CMOS, even re-wire all the drives...but nothing works! It did this before the overclock; first time I turned it on, and then every time after that... I'm running out of ideas, I'm starting to think my only option may be to RMA or just buy a better mobo/PSU/both. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
