Tip 6. Removing Stucked Overclocks
Sometimes you’re stucked with an overclock you just can’t get rid of. It’s easier then you think. This is how to do it.


Step 1. Spam the Del key as soon as you see the Asus logo when booting.

[/HR]
29526



Step 2. Once in the BIOS, press F5 to load the optimized defaults.

[/HR]
29527

[/HR]
29529



Step 4. Shutdown your system and press the clear CMOS on the back.
Step 5. Turn on your system and go into the BIOS again.
Step 6. Load optimized defaults for a second time.
Step 7. Save and restart.



Tip 7. Conflicting Temperature Readings
Has a warning popped up alerting you that your motherboard is burning in hell at 100C? Or maybe it’s frozen like a popsicle at -10C? Don’t worry. Your motherboard is fine. You probably have another temperature monitoring program opened and it’s creating conflicts with AI Suite III.

When you have two temperature polling programs, neither will report the correct reading. Uninstall one of them. But keep AI Suite III of course.

Wow I feel stupid. I was going crazy trying to find out why my idle computer was running 40 °C at idle after I installed a new power supply.
But now it seems the temp reading might have been conflicting with speccy.

Then again why did it start only after the new PSU I mean the new PSU was virtually the same as the old.

Anyone has an idea how to disable shortcuts for AI? Always have trouble with Ctrl+1 when playing. This shortcut gives me some warning message :mad:
