Now, we try to mess up the BIOS and replicate errors, we have a hard time to mess the system, :D.Anyway, I hope everything is resolved now and give us peace of mind, so any mess we have, will be from our choices and wrong settings and not from mysterious X factor.
hehe, sleep tight buddy, it's NOT a faulty CMOS physically speaking. it must be a software bug. problem occurred on BIOS2 eventually. took me a while of jumping through clocks (tried stock 3.9GHz after Optimized defaults, then offset 4.7Ghz, then fixed 5.0GHz again) and eventually when I went back to BIOS I noticed all CPU settings reverted to defaults (Turbo multi auto/39x, PL disabled, c-states auto, digi+ all auto, yet all manual voltages unchanged, while in Windows it was 50x before restart).then I loaded Optimized Defaults again and now BIOS shows all stock values proprly, and yet in Windows I see the CPU runs at 5.0GHz LOL ... no CMOS/EEPROM fault, bad BIOS programming that is, exactly same issues I had in BIOS1 with all BIOSes ranging from 1309 up to 1604.going to Clear CMOS, Load Defaults a few times and flash 1707, hopefully the cure is right there!
