So, last night I turned off my computer like I do every night so I don't leave it running all night. This morning I went to turn it on, the fan was so extremely loud you could hear it outside my room clearly. Then the BIOS screen kept flashing and then I got a message that said System Failed to start and started counting down from three. I turned it off for the day, and turned it back on with no problems at all. Do you think something is wrong with the motherboard overheating or something? I opened everything up and checked connections and there wasn't much dust in there at all. Any ideas?

Are you overclocked at all?

Yeah. But not even that much to where it's critical. It's been overclocked for like three months now though.

The stock speed is 2.7 and the clocked speed is 2.83. It's only clocked one speed up using EZ Overclocking on my BIOS. Anything over makes the motherboard act all buggy.

those are both extremely low. you've got temps people kill for.

there isn't much I can do from here. I figured maybe it was overheating.
