I have just built a new system consistsing of the following:
Asus M5A78L/USB3 AMD Socket AM3
Kingston 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz i5 Memory Kit Non-ECC CL9
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2GHz Socket AM3 6MB Cache
Western Digital WD20EARS 2TB Hard Drive SATAII 64MB Cache - OEM Caviar Green
Powercool 550W 80plus Certified Efficienty PSU - 1x PCI-E 4x SATA
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1155, 1366, AM2, AM3 Heatpipe CPU Cooler
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit SP1
The initial build of the system went as planned until I activated the CPU overclocker on the ASUS motherboard. When this is on the system seems to boot ok and starts to load windows but then hangs and all I get is a blank black screen. I would be happier and the problem easier to diagnose if it was a BSOD rahter than leaving me clueless. No other changes in the BIOS were made.
I have had to reboot and reset the motherboard to the default values to get it to work ok.
Has anyone had a similar issue or can help me identify what could be wrong?
