Hey guys, i've been having a really serious problem lately with my PC. I'll try and make this as short and to the point as possible, i've tried to get help on other forums with no luck so i'm really hoping someone here can shed some light on this for me. I would very much appreciate it, this is my first build and i'm very upset about this.
For about 2 months now, my PC will randomly shut down, restart itself and freeze at the windows logo screen ("starting windows") as it's booting up.
Everytime it does it, the motherboard shows a code "10." It then shuts down then restarts itself, freezes at the windows logo screen (starting windows), then I have to hold the restart button till it shuts down because it won't do anything. I then push the power button to boot it up again and it's fine.
It doesn't happen every time, and it's completely random on when it decides to do this for some reason. It hasn't done it for almost 2 weeks after I did the Windows repair option that showed up when it happened the previous time. I thought to myself "oh I must have fixed it," but I was very wrong. It happened to me again a couple nights ago, I was so dissapointed I didn't fix it. I did the Windows repair option again, and turned off the computer.
And that brings me to why I reset CMOS. I fixed the RAM back to what it's rated for (7-9-8-24 @ 1600MHz 1.65v), disabled all C-States, and fixed boot options and that's all I touched in BIOS.
Well, now I have another problem.... All of a sudden my BCLK is now at 100.3 instead of 100.0 like it was before with my overclock, and with Turbo Mode enabled set to Auto the Core Speed of the CPU won't go above 3500GHz even though the target speed is 3800GHz.
Another weird thing is when I set the AI Overclock Tuner to Manual and Turbo Ratio to All Cores and leave it at Auto, the CPU voltage will skyrocket to 1.47v with no overclock for some reason.
(I'm trying to run the CPU at stock for a while to see if it fixes my problem that made me reset CMOS in the first place.)
Does anyone know what is causing this? Can someone please steer me in the right direction with this? I've been so stressed about this, it would be very much appreciated if I can get an answer to this. I'm so lost, and i've been trying to find an answer for so long.
Here's a picture in CPUID of the 100.3 BCLK and x35 multi:
