    Need help with OC crosshair v formula z and fx8150

    AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.9GHz/4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor with Liquid Cooling Kit

    COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced RC-932-KKN5-GP Black Steel ATX Full

    Since day 1 of my build I seem to have issues with OC. I posted in the forums awhile back and didn't get to far.
    I have since then not oc'd my system at all. I can test all hardware and tests are good. I can wipe my HDD re install everything and still get random freezing and have to force reboot or like as of late i get glitches in os. I have like in background 12 images setup to rotate and they sometimes ghost each other overlapping like both are present at same time,
    Also if I run any type of registry cleaning software whole system will lock up causing force reboot
    I have made sure all drivers and windows updates are up to date and begin to wonder if hardware was never good from the beginning. My ram I am not sure if fully compatible with the MOBO BUT i seen some say it is.
    I really need any help I can get I had my previous build last me 7 years with not half the specs of this system and it still runs to date without any issues.
    I am currently running windows 8 64 bit as well. I have Govt issued symantec endpoint protection running and no other crap on it but games and some basic software applications.
    Any advice on hardware or how I might need to setup Bios. Please dont refer me to the crosshair v formula z and 8150 OC guide. I simply dont get from it enough to oc my rig. I feel there is something missing or perhaps I am too much of a noob and got lucky on my first build.
    Ty again for any quick responses

    Sounds like there is something wrong some place for sure.

    At stock you are having these problems. I would honestly try a fresh OS install but without the End Point. Not a fan at all.

    That being said if your board is at defaults in the bios then it should just work. What changes in the bios have you made?

    That is not good.

    Confirm that both the EPS 12v PSU connectors are fitted please, and if possible do a re-flash of the bios using a fat formatted USB stick via the bios.

    I am very confused guys
    My mobo is what i listed above crosshair v formula z
    auto detect on asus site for support says crosshair v formula
    I have original box and mobo says z at end so went to this site
    http://support.asus.com/download.asp...ormula-Z&os=30

    Cheers mate.

    Certainly you have the Z board.

    Now go to the ASUS support page for the CHV-z board and download the latest bios, or the bios version you want to have on your system.

    Extract the bios to the root directory of a fat formatted USB stick, place the stick in a USB2 port and get into bios, use the EZflash2 utility in the tools menu of the bios and flash your board.
