Dead P8P67 Pro 18 days old

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Didn't get to overclock it at all.

It was running at idle doing nothing and when I came home from work it wouldn't boot.

Anyone else experience premature death on their P67 based Asus boards?

I'm just lucky this was bought at Microcenter so I can just exchange it for another.

This is not helping to cure my usual fear of Asus "reliability"

Wondering if I should exchange for a Gigabyte board instead.

Are you sure it is the mobo and not something like the RAM, gpu, cpu, psu, or HD?

Do you have any P67 mobo lying that you can test to see if it's really the board?

And if it's just idling doing nothing, might as well turn it off except you're doing a burn-in test or something.

Now you're thinking wisely although it could be the ram, cpu, psu, or etc.

So, since it didn't boot you gave up and concluded it's the motherboard?

Could be a bad CPU, GPU, HDD (yes, I've seen HDDs that cause POST errors), PSU etc. These are very complicated machines, you need to test this stuff before you can deem that it's broken.

I'm getting no post beep, no CPU fan spin up, just a green LED on the board. The fans twitch when I hit the power button.

I tried three Power supplies one in a box that was running when I unhooked it... same results.

Removing memory from the board = same results
HDDs and all SATA devices were unplugged at that point
Tried unplugging GPU = same results
Tried clearing the BIOS repeatedly throughout this
Tried with one stick of RAM = same results

I don't have another CPU to try..... and honestly when was the last time someone had a Dead CPU? In all my 15 years of working in IT and building my own machines I've never once seen a compatible CPU stop a box from booting.

I didn't list troubleshooting steps because I felt pretty confident in my troubleshooting steps. See them above and let me know if you have other suggestions. Next time you want to know what steps have been performed, ASK me, Mr. moderator. Don't defacto assume I'm a moron and put words in my mouth.

I don't have any other p67 boards around. You guys keep harping CPU CPU CPU. I'll eat my hat if it's the CPU. Seriously.

As for idling all day, that's what my PCs do when I'm not home. I work where there is a draconian web filter blocking access to just about the entire internet. It's nice for my job to be able to bypass that by remoting into my home PC and surfing from there. I don't always need it, but I always want it on. It's also IMO NOT an unreasonable expectation for a desktop with premium parts and upgraded cooling to run 24/7 365.

Asus P67 Pro boards can and will kill a cpu, killed mine.
However since you've said that you didn't oc, maybe the mobo did die.

Have you tried with your mobo outside of the case?
You said no beeps, do you have a speaker installed?

Yes I tried it sitting on a box outside the case as a last ditch effort. Same results. I have a little piezo speaker I plug into the motherboard when I'm troubleshooting.

Another hint the mobo is the culprit is typically on a bootup with my GPU in the slot but without the two 6pin plugs plugged into the card you get the beep from the card indicating not enough power. It doesn't beep at all.
