Crosshair V formula really anoying issues

ahmicm
Level 7
Hello all,
I have Crosshair Formula V mobo like 2,5 years. And constantly have same issue with "Overclocking failed! Enter bios... etc etc", after that I press F1 followed by esc, discard changes and boot very well to system (win 8.1 x64), even if I never did the overclock. Right now, it is pretty anoying all that time after restarting doing that "F1 thing" and I was try to fix this. I was read all similar stuff on this forum, and not a single 1 helped me. There is some strange issue, I cant save nothing when I enter to the bios and make some changes, except boot order. All other things it's not accepting. I did the bios update from 0404 to 1703 ,and all its the same. I also, replaced bios chip, and nothing better, pretty the same. Does any1 here know what could be my problem.

Specs:
Mobo- already mentioned
GPU - VTX R9 280x
CPU - FX8150
RAM Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB 1866Mhz C9
SSD Adata 128GB
PSU - Thermaltake 775w

I also send similar mail to asus support, but still (after 24h) no answer.

I will be pretty happy and thankfull If someone can help me with this.

Best regards,
MyX

Hello MeanMashine I have read that. My problem also is that I can't save anything in bios..except boot order. So this guide is worthless in my case, because of that "non-save" issue. Thank you for your interesting man.

This is strange, Are you sure that when you enter, none selective values that you are using the +and - keys to increase settings in Bios.
Some values will not save if keyed in manually.
Just a thought:confused:

I know it is strange. Yes I'm sure, I tryed everything, +/- keys, entering values, selection from drop down menus and nothing. Guys from "Asus Balkan" answered me that is or non-compatible CPU/RAM, or maybe unstable voltage OR bad mobo. I've tryed 2 different CPU's x4 965 and fx8150 (both compatible with mobo), also I try 3 diferent types/vendors of ram, every from list, and same thing. It seems like it is bad mobo. But I just don't get it, in OS is so stable, temeperatures and everything is pretty fine, just that BIOS thing/s makes me nervous. 😄

Check the CMOS battery, or just replace it to be sure that it's not the source of your problem - you have had that board for long enough that the battery could be suspect.

Hello Z, I replaced the battery also, forgot to mention that. Mine was 2.84V, I assume that is not bad, but I replaced it anyway. Thanks for participating to this Thread. Any help would me more than apreciated.

EDIT: also forgot to say, today I was doing bios downgrade from 1703 to 1605 to 1503 ........ all the way down to 0903 and at all versions I had the same issue.

Right now i installed RC tweakit on my remote laptop, and found that my CPU voltage jumping from 0,86 to 1,11 to 1,44V, and also CPU/NB and DRAM voltage is not constant. Is that a normal??

No this is not normal, a +or- 5% is acceptable, so I would have your PSU tested.
Low voltage on the +12V results in a increase in current, to compensate for low voltage which could result in overheating.

PSU replaced with brand new Seasonic M12 G620, and it's all the same! Damn, I wish it was PSU.
