Hey,

I bought this board a few months ago, and had my cpu up to 3.33ghz with no issies.. Didn't have to mess with anything except memory ratio.

Then, one day the computer would not start up, and then restart itself using "bios defaults".. And now, the only way to boot it up without it having to go back to defaults is to have everything 'Auto'. As soon as I change the FSB to MAN mode (set it to 200 which is stock speed) it still does the boot up, shutdown, boot up with default mode.

Any suggestions would be nice. Would like to have my OC back..

I'm thinking it may be Memory.. I have 1x2gb stick of Buffalo

Only joking mate...Chill & Relax = CHILLAX!

But if you had the mobo stable for a long time and its acting up now. Its doing exactly what it does with any failed overclock. If it were me I would factory default all setting and use it like that for a few days....to see if components are working. If not issues gradually clock it again.

But yes I would say RAM or PSu.

Well, that's exactly what I did.. Because this started a few weeks ago and I set it to factory defaults (loaded from bios menu).. And so... as soon as I try to change the fsb from auto to manual, it just does not like it.

I'm sort of stuck on what to try next. I did try setting to manual, then dropping the fsb to like 150, and it still would not boot... So maybe my mobo is having an issue?
