    OC-Button Problem / ROG Front Base

    Hello everybody,
    I've got a big problem with my ROG Front Base / OC Button

    My System:
    Maximus VII Hero
    Core i7 4790k
    8gb 1600mhz

    Whenever I press the OC button my System instantly freezes so that not even the resetbutton works anymore.

    I really would love to use the 2 levels for quick access to 4.6 and 4.8 ghZ as the front base offers the function and i paid for it :P I'ts a bit dissapointing that it simply dont want to work. BIOS Settings are all on default. Drivers for Board and Frontpanel are all installed.

    Hope someone can help me.

    Hi tweak90 and welcome to ROG.

    Many have had your problem and the system doesn't always play fair, especially Overclocking from within windows.

    Level up 1 and 2 are very much dependent on hardware configuration.
    Best to clear your CMOS and start again. Only OC using static settings for performance tweaking and only from within the BIOS.
    Start by establishing a default config that the Bios will establish for you using D.O.C.P in the Extreme Tweaker menu, which will auto optimize.

    Boot into windows and check with CPUz what has been chosen for you, and run a small stress test whilst monitoring the temps.
    If you are stable then you can Tweak for performance, saving profiles as you go.
    Plenty of help here, and some great tutorials available.

    Good Luck and let us know how you go.

    What cooling are you using? If your CPU can do those frequencies then it will, if it can not with the cooling you have it will not.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    I have not had time to get round to sorting out the overclocks on mine yet, but there is an issue regarding the OC button, what you need to do is set your standard profile (probably 4.4GHz) then go on to overclock, stress test, and then save the other profiles in the tools menu, which should then be pulled on demand from the front base unit, make sure that profile 1 is set to your standard setup, then 2 and 3 should be the overclocked setups.


    As I have not yet had chance to go through and setup mine properly, this is only a working theory as there is little to no information to getting this setup correctly anywhere I can find, so the above information could possibly be wrong.

    Make sure you have static voltages set also in the saved profiles, else the system will try and guess at its own and that could be way over what is needed and crash / freeze your computer.

    I tried everything including sending back the motherboard and two front bases. The whole time it was the cooling. The Devils Canyon (4790) is meant to go to 4.8gh but with air cooling it wont and also when the oc button is pressed on the front base it will always lockup or crash. I bought the Corsair h110i and problem solved.
