My dead mobo and cpu

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So yeah, 2 days ago I was just doing plain gaming on my rig when it suddenly just shut down. I wondered what it was and as I put it back on it had no image on the monitor and it just shutdown after like 2 seconds.

I started smelling like something was burning so I opened my case and the smell was even sharper. I took out my motherboard and inspected the motherboard to see if it had any burn marks but was unable to find any. The smell seemed to be sharpest in between of cpu and backpanel I/O-ports.

I then tried my cpu on my other P8H67 C3 board and it booted but got no image on the screen (IGP or discrete GPU), the computer just stayed on, the fans were spinning.

Now, I was running it at 4,5ghz and 1.3v at this time. The temperatures on the chip never exceeded 70c with these setting. I used to run it at 1,4v 4,8ghz before but didn't like the temperature in load at the 80's so I backed it down to 4,5ghz. The overclock was 24h prime stable. I did a suicide run at 5,1ghz and 1,5v but it was just superpi and it was only once.

Is the overclocking the cause of this problem or a faulty board? I think the motherboard should have been able to take that voltage with ease.

Would this pass RMA if it was indeed the boards fault?

The CPU/P8P67 EVO look perfectly fine to the outside, no burn marks on either one of them.

Temperatures were kept in the 70's most of the time, it shouldn't be the problem.

My PSU/RAM/GPU are now in my secondary AMD rig that I'm running at this moment, I don't have the money to buy a new cpu right now so I was wondering if it could pass RMA as I stayed in the limits that Intel gave us? I never wen't over 1,52v or 90c.

To me, the motherboard, which was C2, was the weakest link and gave up and fried my cpu, could it be that way?

Could be you blew your northbridge if the smell was near the back IO panel and the processor...

I'd say either RMA the board or take off the heatsink and check your burns there.

Doesn't the removal of heatsink dismiss the warranty?

Only if you physically damage any part of your board because of the removal. I have replaced the TIM on my boards NB/SB and when I RMA'ed it, it wasn't a problem.

I did break off one of the plastic locking tabs for my one of my PCI-E slots and was made to pay an extra $10 or $15 cause of a little plastic piece...
