Windows 7: Only 100 megahertz???

Windows 7 64bit

I thought it was you that originally told me to validate using this system... but you've never used it yourself? How do you do load tests? Is there some other method that is better?

OK, so I'll assume all is functioning properly and the rejection notice is just a zombie
invasion bug that will be fixed soon.

I use CPU-Z, but just to see the information the program displays. I have never validated anything with it.

This is what I use it for:

OK, I was just using that so I could post a link so folks could see the readout

Any idea why in my BIOS is shows the timing being 10-10-10-27
but the load test is showing the timing at 9-9-9-24

Did my timing get retarded er something?

OK, I hope I didn't mess up my system... I was in the BIOS looking at the section that shows the primary timings and the secondary timings and there was this one setting that I clicked on and the computer immediately shut down.

Now, all it will do is attempt to start, and then shut down... attempt to start, and then shut down..etc, etc.

I had to un-plug the power.

It was one of the two settings down at the bottom and when you click on it it says OK, or cancel.
I can't imagine this causing it to not be able to start at all.

When I try to start it up, there is a red light on the mother board that comes on that I've never seen before and then it shuts down.

Any idea how to get it back to where it will start?
Is there a way to manually re-set the mother board settings, or do I have to send it back to the manufacturer now and have them replace the mother board?

How can you do that if the computer won't even start up?

It keeps turning itself off before it starts, over and over, and over... I had to un-plug the power.

Nevermind... I found the user manual and it told me what to do in order to set the BIOS back to default.

It was the GPU Boost that I clicked on that made it do this... it no likey!

Interesting... before putting in the new RAM, I had no changed anything in the BIOS.

But, when it wouldn't boot and I had to reset the BIOS to default... I went and looked
and now the RAM timing is set to 10-10-10-27 instead of 9-9-9-24

So, while I was there I set that command to 1 that you were telling me about... it was set at 2

OK, so I followed the instructions sent to me by Velocity Micro (my PC manufacturer) and it now tests back at 4000 like it was before and all seems to be just as stable as before.

I have the RAm set at 1600 with the new voltage settings that automatically
changed themselves as Corsair said they should.

Think I should do anything else to it???

Here's their overclock instructions...

Step 1.
Enter BIOS by tapping "Delete" when you see the Velocity Micro splash screen during boot.

Step 2.
Use the arrows keys(or your mouse) to tab over to the "Tool" menu

Step 3.
From the tool menu select "ASUS O.C. Profile"

Step 4.
Go down to "Load from Profile" and select any profile numbers 1-7 and press enter.

Step 5.
With Step 4 all of your settings are loaded for the 4.0 OC but now with your different memory you need to make sure that it is still properly setup. Tab over to the "A.I. Tweaker" tab and verify at the top that it states "Target CPU Turbo-mode Speed: 4000Mhz"

Step 6.
Change "AI Overclock Tuner to X.M.P" and verify your RAM speed at the top of the screen where it says "Target DRAM Speed" Once X.M.P is enabled

Step 7.
Return to the "Tool" menu and save a custom profile now that your memory is in XMP with the OC. Save only one profile until you verify that the system is stable in Windows before saving over all of the profiles

Step 8.
Press F10 and select save and exit. Return to the BIOS to save profiles once you verify stability in Windows.
