    Windows won't run updates.

    Read the instructions, did it, still no success. Found another clue that would help you guys to help me get to the bottom of this: Even if I click Restore Defaults, it says the same. Also, no Windows Update in my Services.

    Windows won't run updates.

    Anyone had this issue before, that can help me resolve it? Something to do with the Firewall not turning on properly.

    GTX 460 good for modern gaming?

    To be honest, even that GTX460 is better than nothing. Most ESport games will run ok on it, and you can get some BF and COD action on it. Maybe a bit Crysis and some other shooters. Dont hate on a man that has no budget to work with, he does what he can and what he gets it is good for him. Do...

    BF1 Crashing Constantly

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    Ok so a little diging around the trusted Internet told me that Intel XTU only works with Core Gen 2 or above for the readings so basicly i cant tell you anything besides temp and usage.

    I believe i have a crappy version of gt 520.. and i can't install any driver from nvidia official

    Wait a minute? GF119? That isnt a Fermi Card? Maybe try and use GT620 drivers and see if they work. The GeForce GT 620 (OEM) card is a rebranded GeForce GT 520. Source: Wikipedia

    Finished basement, wireless not reaching several areas

    No password security feature beats my MAC Security feature. Guests have to give me their MAC IDs to have access to my cheap TP LINK which covers my 105 cubick meters apartment, placed in the center of it. For my own standard 50$ to 100$ is the sweet spot for routhers depending on your own needs.

    Believe me, im still clueless as to what the hell is going on with this system, i truly am, and as iritating as it can be, i just didnt want to waste anymore time going back and forth with you guys.

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    Final settings: CPU: 3.1Ghz, 156 bus speed, x19 multiplier. Idk what to say at this point, my I5 750 althow same architecture and same tcase temp (72.7 as sugested by Intel) could clock higher and keep higher temps (in the 80s) without downclocking. Im starting to guess my board is going to...

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    Ok so I'm back, and I've been doing some testing, and ill explain what i did and what settings I used: 1. XMP profile with RAM bumped up to 1866mhz. 2. Turbo Boost disabled (with SpeedStep, C1 and CStates disabled as well), (keep this in mind) 3. CPU tested with Bus Speed of 156, and with 3...

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    Just finished a stock run on Intel XTU, max boost was 2.9Ghz and no downclocks, nothing, kept going the whole time with temp sitting around 50C at load. I think i should reset the CMOS on this board and do a flash on older BIOS, and then back to the newest one, it is somehow buggy, using Turbo...

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    Wow, i just realised that before reading post, but funny thing is SpeedStep is disabled, and with it Turbo as well. So how does it try to turbo without SpeedStep, im kinda confused.

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    I would have to buy a new one to do that. Or maybe i can get my friend's Evga 650 gold nova g2 which is same output as mine, but more efficient and newer, so i could do that.

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    Ok ill try tonight do some more scenarios, and play around with some of the settings, but at this point, all points out to a bad mobo, and im not happy about that. Ill get back here tonight with some more info and screen shots with all info about temps, clocks, voltages and stuff.

    Bios corrupted, CPU downclocking under load??

    I I am well aware of thaf that is why i resorted to 3.6 / 3.7Ghz oc since it is not far of original turbo boost clock of 3.4Ghz. It does, but it is just, enable/disable thing, and does not give any extra features to play with.
