    Default multiplier change on some boots

    hi
    over the last 2-3 days i have had issues with my multiplier changing from 21 to 23 on odd cold boots
    been all running well and just swap it back to 21 and boot ok then and if i test it ,its all ok and stable
    im on latest bios and drivers and not sure what to try first
    all power saving is off
    its been running great on 180x21 but
    there have been no changes really on pc
    any help would be great

    thanks

    Hmm, that's odd! Ya, maybe a clear CMOS would help?

    Does it show this on the POST info when it happens, and BIOS is set to x23 too? If so, it may help to make sure both BIOSes are matching, this is not usually needed for X58, but worth trying just in case this is part of the issue.

    it will boot and stop and reboot then give me an overclocking/voltage warning and says its resetting to standard then if i go in bios all settings are my normal oc ones apart from multiplier that is 23 again.then if i set it to 21 it boots fine and tests well
    and once its started it will reboot correctly all day and night
    i have slowed down my ram to try last night and still the same

    Hmm, might just be a cold boot issue, or could be a new bug due to BIOS version? Try making the BIOSes match and see if that matters or not.

    If not, it might be a bug. There is a newer BIOS that we just requested something get fixed in, you can get it here

    Ya, sorry I didn't mention that earlier, I thought you were in on the F5d issue thread with us!

    Just flash both BIOSes with that BIOS, that'll make it easy! Flash one, do your optimized dance, then shut down and flip the BIOS switch, then flash that BIOS.
