I was getting blue screens periodically, and my PC would reboot. Finally got a message on boot up....the dreaded "Overclocking Failed".

Managed to get into the bios and load some configuration, not sure what it is, but the PC is up and running. Temps were low 30's C, so I don't think Temperature was an issue.

Guess I'll be calling DS this week to see if they can sort it out.

Forgot to add... I've had this system less than a week.
