    Some people stay away from products with the beta label on it. Because beta.

    I'm sitting here a little peed off at the moment, I've recently upgraded my motherboard from an Asus Z170-E which ran my i5 6400 @ 4.4Ghz with no problem, to a Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 using the F7K bios. My problem is that although I can still overclock to 4.4GHz using the 27x multiplier and a 163Mhz bclk and all is stable. As soon as I shutdown for the night and try to turn it on again in the morning, the system just won't post until I switch it off at the mains and back on again, hit the power button then quickly hit reset a few times. I've even tried just a small overclock by increasing the bclk to 105Mhz but that was even worse and I couldn't bring the system back to life until I pressed the Cmos clear button.

    So in short any attempt at setting any clock speed over stock results in the system not posting. Is this a bios issue or a motherboard issue? This is the 2nd Gaming 7 I've tried and still the same problem.

    Well mine can behave in a similar manner with overclocking , once a overclock is applied i'm 100% stable in the o/s , doesn't matter how many stress test i use or for how long i run them it all passes, and voltages and temps are well within the more than safe zone , restarting is fine too , but every morning when i power up from a cold start it boots me into the bios saying that the overclock has failed .

    Im on bios f6 as this is the last non beta ,, were not the only users with this as i've have read others post on here about overclock and cold start issue .

    atm i'm having to use easytune that applies the O/C from within the o/s which is working 100% to it just means that i have to reapply the o/c every day should i wish to, which i don't bother anymore i just the cpu @stock now (i7 6700k) .


    Im waiting for the final f7 bios to come out and then i will spend sometime configuring my system again with a modest 24/7 o/c as this is the reason i purchased a k model cpu ,so i hope that when f7 is here this will clear it up , as i don't know what else it could be just atm

    Well I tried the Easytune software just a while ago after reading your reply, It wants to reboot to apply the overclock so I rebooted and the system wouldn't post using the same settings I use to get 4.4Ghz. Is thre a way to get the overclock to apply without rebooting?

    are you using the pre made profiles , u just click on it applies the o/c without having to re-boot for me


    have you tried the profiles from within the bios there are available ? ,, i dint know if there ther for you as you have a different cpu than me

    Yeah maybe it won't work with a non k CPU with the Non k bios. ack i'll just stick to stock and when it becomes a bottleneck i'll upgrade the CPU maybe.

    I'm using an i5 6400 you're using a 6700k overclocking using just the multiplier? Maybe it the memory I'm using? Kingston fury black 2666Mhz.

    How are you using a non k bios with a K CPU? I thought we were warned against doing so?
