CPU should be fine. Since the dead VRM keeps the current away from it basically.

I'm not dismayed. I have been expecting this moment for over a year, but was hopeful it wouldn't crap the bed before the 990fx's came out. I am kinda wondering about the timing. Ran 24/7 folding for months at 4.25 and has lived through many IBT runs at higher clocks and volts.

I dont know, think it just all of a sudden happens, I sure didnt expect it. Might not have even tried it if that nifty little VRM and power phase guide was out by then.

But I went to MSI website and simply put in an RMA, they gave me an address to mail to, about a week later got a message saying RMA was excepted, about a week after that new board with all the goodies was sent to me. Never had to even speak to anyone. Sold the board.

How long did you have it? I have had mine since Oct 2009. I don't think they would RMA that.

Oh. I believe they only have 1 year replacement warranty. Got mine in July of 2010 and replaced in jan of this year, so only bout 7-8 months.

There is a slim possibility that other components are affected
You were using what voltage by the way? What cooling?

I was just re-reading your thread with the chart you put me in. The chip and board were under water, CPU was at 1.5375 if that matters.

Thanks to everyone that came in here to give my board it's last OCN attention.

Didn't MSI extend their motherboard warranty length to 3 years?

Dude, motherboard is shot. I had this EXACT problem. I started with the 790fx and a 965be last year, then few weeks later the 1090t came out, so I bought that. Continued on my merry business overclocking to 4.2, then ran linx or IBT, and BOOM, shot dead. I got so frustrated I bought a new board since it was past my return policy and i wanted it NOW and guess what....BOOM. These boards just cant handle six cores dude. Luckily i returned the SECOND one and ran my 965be from then on.

I havent been to this forum in like a year, since I figured out my stable overclock way back when. The reason Im here now is because my 790fx apparently doesnt like the overclock anymore? I kept losing system time and one day i look at cpu-z and everything is back to stock...I was like what the hell so I put my overclocked settings back on and its not stable. Now Im starting from scratch to see what happened....I ran memtest but no errors....who knows. Ive got a thread about it, sorry I wont hijack this one. Stick with the 965 dude its just as good, unless some super Pi numbers and benchmark ratings REALLLLLY matter as much as you want them to, becuase....they dont. Play games, have fun! thats why we do this.
