Hi there, I recently Overclocked my ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard using SetFSB program, all was working well when suddenly the display on my monitor started flickering and the computer will go off, I went back and set the motherboard to defaults but am still getting the same problem, how do I bring back the motherboard to defaults and how do Overclocking affect the motherboard functionality?
CPU unstable after Overclocking motherboard
The main problem of Overclocking is creating a big instability of the main OS and killing in time your CPU. Overclocking rises the temperature of CPU and it might be possible that your CPU Fan can't cooling enough, the CPU changes his rate of MHz and it's not on the same frequency as memory RAM is, if the airflow of case is not good enough it raises the temperature of the whole system and causes its failure and some loss of data.
To reset your motherboard to the factory settings you have to reset your BIOS by removing the main battery for 10 seconds. It is not recommended for you to do this if you still have a warranty certificate because you will void an loose the warranty. Go to an authorized service and they will do it for you. If it is necessary, reinstall your OS by buying a Legal Windows System Operation if you don't have one already.
