My Rig to start:
MSI Z68A-GD65 (g3) BIOS 23.1B5 100010 Base clock (to bring it to 100.1)
i5 2500K under Noctura NH-D14 (N-S)
16GB G.Skill DDR3 1333 CL9 (4x4GB)
Crucial M4 128GB (on Intel Sata3)
MSI R6950 TF II, 900/1325 (1168mV) 6970 Unlocked
Logitech G510/Performance MX
I haven't OCed in years. I finally upgraded my antique machine (S478 P4HT 3.0C, Asus P4C800DLX, OCZ Plat Rev 2).
So I have been messing around with my 2500k, and no matter what I try, I cant get it to load windows if I change the multiplier. I updated the bios to latest Beta, as I couldnt enter the bios with my G510, and mouse was twitchy in stock bios.
I have even tried to set the same settings as OC Genie, and no go. OC genie works. If I change the multiplier, it posts, and goes to MSI splash screen, then when it normally loads windows it just blinks. I have tried some of the bios settings I have seen around the web in OC posts, and even tried giving more voltage than needed (like 4.0/4.2ghz on 1.4V core).
So before I get to crazy, I was wondering if someone can post what everything does, or spot I can see what they all do. Also whats the stock bios look like on these boards, because if I load the defaults, the only thing that seems to change is base clock, multiplier, and core voltage. Things like power options etc, dont go back to enabled.
