    What the *bleep* i going on...

    my pc has been oc'd and running 100% stable on small fft prime 2-4hrs and 24hrs of aida 64... all was fine for weeks now until a few hours ago.... windows hard locked so I rebooted with reset switch and I get the computer needs to enter recovery screen on windows 10 boot which asks to press f1 or esc but if I press ANY KEY the pc completely shuts off....

    Asus Maximus X Hero
    16gb GSkill
    1tb 860 Evo
    4tb WD Black
    GTX 1070ti FTW2
    EVGA G3 850 PSU


    and YES I tried turning all the oc settings and voltage settings back to stock settings and no it didn't fix the problem...

    is there some sort of power setting in the bios I'm missing ?


    after about 5-6 of these loops I get back into windows as if all is normal... then it'll happen again awhile later

    Are you running Windows 10 1803 ?
    A. Microsoft released it last week with known bugs.
    B. From what I've experienced on this pc, yesterday's Patch Tuesday update didn't fix the issue.
    The issue affects Google Chrome, Cortana, etc. and causes pc lockups and the start menu to freeze up.
    I also noticed personally that it also affects Opera, if you have any Chrome extensions installed in it.
    If it's bugging you too much, I'd use a flash drive that you created to start your pc and run System Restore from it and restore your pc back to Windows 10 1709.
    Windows 10 1803 was released last Tuesday (April 30) at 1:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time/12:00 P.M. Central Standard Time/11:00 A.M. Pacific Standard Time.
    Restore your pc to then and avoid the April 2018 Update for a while.

    Overclocked parts.

    Overclock is overspec. No guarantees, no promises, never. So an overclock which works perfectly one day might become unstable the next day, it happens eventually to every overclocked part, longevity of an overclock is as unpredictable as any other parameter of an overclock.

    Although I'm suspecting the first crash might have had something to do with unstable RAM or system drive fault, while the subsequent problems are just Windows being as arrogantly stubborn and stupid as usual. I'd try booting Windows (and perhaps also a linux) off USB a few times, just to confirm whether the fixed WinOS install is somehow "broken".

    the bios reset button on the back side will clear the cmos and reset bios to stock.
