    Re: 3XS Overclock Core I7 Systems

    Hi Ben,

    I actually did just read this post:

    which is exactly what has happened to my system. So I did re-load the overclocking in the BIOS, did a restart and I saw my normal boot up, all the drives were auto-detected, but it still hung on a blinking cursor.

    I went back into BIOS and I could only find my boot drive and I've worked out that if I have a USB drive hooked up when I restart, it's only trying to boot from the USB.

    I don't know why I can't set the boot drive to be the correct SATA drive, but at least it is booting. Thanks again for the quick reply.
