Just got a new board, CPU and RAM about a week ago. Happily got it humming at 4.5ghz. Thismorning I restarted my PC to install some updates, and it wouldnt reboot. After a few failed reboots it gave me the old 'overclocking failed' message.
Dropped out extra sticks of RAM, and set everything back to stock, and it works fine.
I jumped back into bios to have a look at re-overclocking, and all of a sudden it won't let me push my CPU ratio over the 'base' value of 35, even with turbo mode enabled.
It's as if its acting as though it doesn't have a K series CPU in it, and is locking me out of the multi.
I have reflashed the BIOS to the latest one, with no success. I'm a bit stumped, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have tried clearing the CMOS. No dice. I only mentioned that these settings because they disappeared after the initial crash, at the same time the bios stopped letting me increase the CPU ratio. I am still able to set the Vcore.
