Flummoxed by problems with new overclocked build
So I got an asus z77-lk and i5 3750 and overclocked it to 4.4 ghz for about a month and a half stably with games and 24/7 load with BOINC. Just recently, it started resetting, and when it came back up it paused after post saying "Power Supply Surges detected during the previous power on. ASUS Anti-Surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply unit!"
I reset the bios back to factory and for some reason my computer is still at 4.4 ghz? I turned of Intel turbo boost and then it goes back to 3.4 ghz, but still has the resetting issue. I turned off the ASUS anti surge setting in bios, since I'm running with a nice big rackmounted ups, and my psu is a new rosewill CAPSTONE-750-M. I have an old 520 corsair that I guess I could try swapping out.
1. So if it doesn't happen know that I turned of power protect am I ok?
2. How can I try lowering the overclock to say 4.2ghz since even the factory reset didn't? I tried manually setting a maximum multiplier of 42 and a factory reset, but it still went up to 4.4 ghz.
3. I guess I really should try another psu? It can't be that my ups died right?
