Thread: GA-EX58-UD3 false/double starting after OC, normal? Please help

    Default GA-EX58-UD3 false/double starting after OC, normal? Please help

    System specs:
    EX58-UD3R Bios version F2
    Core i7940
    3 gigs Patriot Viper Ram, running at 1022
    EVGA Nvidia GTX260 video card
    Dual HDD's, in RAID 0 configuration
    PSU - Corsair 620HX 620 watts

    When I OC my machine to 3.08ghz, upon shut down, and start up, the fans spin up, and the LED's turn on momentarily, then power off again. After that everything cycles again, and starts up just fine. This doesnt happen after a restart, only after shutdowns, and then power button to boot.

    As far as I could notice this started happening after installing the GTX260 card.

    At the moment Im using Easy Tune 6 to OC the CPU. Will manually OC'ing in BIOS fix this issue, or is this a normal occurance with OC? Will upgrading the BIOS fix this? Is the double/false start harmful?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Do you have any USB devices plugged in ? (this is an issue i have come accros before)

    But from what im reading it doesnt look like you overclock is stable.

    Have you looked into how much more there is involved in i7 overclocking?

    Firstly ive never had any good experiences with Easytune.

    Is your overclock stable?

    What voltage are you using?

    Don't use easyTune to overclock. It sounds like you've used it and saved the settings. The BIOS is probably set to [Auto] on most of the crucial settings effecting stability, such as RAM timings and various voltage settings. The BIOS may well havbe having to re-detect auto settings for a second time before it can POST.

    As said, read up on i7 overclocking and set things manually in the BIOS. I can't give you any suggestions as I've yet to get my hands on an i7 system.
