Everytime I boot up my machine - I get this error

"CPU over voltage - Press f1 to continue"

I press f1 and the machine boots up fine, but how do I get rid of this annoying error.

- I've removed the cmos chip
- Set the defaults in the bios
- Flashed the bios with the latest version and older ones

Asus AV8 Deluxe Motherbaord


Any help would be great, I am really stuck.

Let's determine if it is a real error or a misreported value.  What cpu do you have, and what voltage does the BIOS report your cpu is running at?  You've done the things I would recommend if the cpu was not recognized preoperly.

Problem now resolved.

It turned out that the voltage on the RAM was to low.

It was CL2.5 - I changed it to a stick which was 3.0CL - and now I no longer get the error message.

That's actually the latency that you're referring to - that's strange that it would cause such an error, though.
