    When you load optimized defaults, those settings will be 800/900, so there is no need to set them manually. They only default to 700/700 when fail safe settings are loaded.

    You will be fine, it's just not good for stability is all.

    1. Load optimized
    2. Save/apply/reboot F10 (Reboot back to BIOS)
    3. Set all SATA/Disk settings you need to, then adjust anything else you need.

    Very important to reboot right back to the BIOS, especially if you are using RAID, because you must set the SATA/Disk settings back to RAID otherwise you will corrupt your array.

    If you are not using RAID and skip that step or windows accidentally loads you will be OK, it will just fail to boot to windows until you correct the settings is all.

    If your clock drives are at 700mv then you need to record your OC settings on a piece of paper, then go to the main menu and choose "Load Optimized Defaults", save and exit, then re enter the BIOS and set your OC settings again. You will need to also replace all current saved BIOS profiles as they will be constructed on Failsafe Defaults too.

    Fail Safe settings are used automatically after a BIOS flash, which may be why they are in use.
    Thanks for this info. I had no idea about this. I THOUGHT I had gone to optimized defaults the last time I flashed but I had the same "fail safe" readings. I didn't have any system issues though. Sorted now though. Thanks again.

    Always "Load Optimized Defaults"... When ever you clear CMOS or you update the bios always Load optimized defaults press f10 renter bios set your voltages for ram / O.C settings and Raid/AHCI mode press F10

    Good to hear everything is good.
