    Default UD3R X58 will not OC? anymore help needed.

    Its a very strange problem and an RMA is not what i want to do if i can avoid it. I have had my core i7 sitting at 3.8 and stable for a few weeks since i got my new cooler. volts were 1.25. Today i tried to turn my computer on and the computer juts loop constanly with all the lights on the motherboard bright red or what ever colours they are im colour blind lol. i reset the cmos. did the old screw driver trick touching the 4 pins which got it booting again. my board will just not let me oc anymore. even if i turn the base clock to 140 which is 2.8 and reboot, i get a constant loop. im going out of my mind its driving me crazy. I have tried different bios, ive never updated bios from usb or floppy only @bios i know im going to get moaned at but it didnt ever break my stuff. Im just unsure why its not OCing anymore or what i can do to fix the problem? when i reset it i sometimes cmos checksum error-default profile loaded? currently have the F2 BIOS loaded i have tried F9 and F4 is it me or have gigabyte renamed their bios a few times over last few months? their were beta bios but no more. Another thing when i first got my motherboard my ram timings were being read at their correct timings of 9-9-9-24 for few months they have been read at 8-8-8-24?

    I have had the battery out for about 15 mins surely that is enough? what is the best way to do the cmos reset? take battery out with power cord still in the pc with switch up? or cord out?

    it can take upto 22 hours to fully clear,u can clear it with 15mins but id try overnight just to be sure,and power off pc at front and at the wall before you take it out,do you have a D0 or c0 chip? 1.25000 cpu v is a little high for 3.8ghz,i only use 1.18750v
