It sounds like an PSU issue there, what did you do more than just pull it all out?

Maybe some settings were not correct when you set everything back? OR it can be your GPU.

Tried another GPU, still nothing.

It could be the cpu, but the only time i had a dead cpu it didn't heat up at all. It wouldn't post, but the fans would spin.

No beeps.

I'm really thinking it could be the mobo. Ram sticks were already tried one by one.

Hoping it's only the mobo.

Weird coz there's nothing unusual if you look at it. Was thinking some metallic dirt caused the issue but there's no signs of burning nor arcing on the traces.

did you try putting the gpu in a different pci-e slot?

Yup did that as well..

Pretty much the only things I haven't done yet were installing the CPU to another mobo, and testing another PSU.. All else that i have have already been tried.

On a side note, I'll go pick one of the Kittys. biggrin.gif

And yeah, how hot does your backplate go. I have installed the backplate before it died on me and the thing just absorbs a lot of the VRM heat.

Used some blu-tack as electrical insulator and the heat transfer was superb! Actually made me think to put a proper heatsink at the back of the VRMs before it died.
post #9614 of 12377
that sucker just about burns your hand haha. I used a thermal pad 0.5mm thick so heat transfer is pretty good. It certain could benefit from a heatsink attached to the back plate.

I've thought about watercooling the VRM's a lot lately. I kinda wanted AMD to release a steamroller core FX and new motherboard chipset, but seems that is not going to happen. Since those plans were scraped I may just purchase the vrm block and hang on to this system for the forseeable future.

I could see myself switching to haswell-e though.

Intel Extremes is the only way to go to coming from an eight core AMD IMO. Just too pricey for me. mad.gif

But I'm still hesitant with Haswell's OC'ing capabilities. Pretty much more of a lottery than AMD FX from what I have heard.


I remember before all this trouble came to my set-up that my heatpiped heatsink barely heats up my VRMs on the PCB side. I could still stand touching it for a couple of minutes running at 1.512 volts. But since this happened, urrgh.

its likely because your motherboard was warped and the vrm heatsink was no longer making good contact with the Vrms.

This is why I made a back plate for mine, it fixes the board warp-age problem.

a 4770k is a solid upgrade from a 8350. But yes the only true upgrade are the extremes, from a muticore perspective anyways. Single core speed is vastly better on the Intel platforms. I will likely be getting a Haswell-E when they come out. 8 cores 16 threads, great single core, soldered instead of Tim. I might have to drop over 1000$ usd but it will be fast.

I was still damn flat up to now.. T'was due to these issues you guys reported that I was able to do some preemptive jobs to care for that heating VRM.

Some Heating marks on the PCB but nowhere brown. More of TIM stains. I'll take some pics when I get home later.

Still couldn't think what could have caused it. And still wondering if the chip was alright!!!

Almost all of the ud3 motherboards are warped in the vrm area. On rev 4.0 I think they added a back plate to address these issues. I personally think your cpu is fine. If anything your motherboard may have died. Although it is possible if the motherboard died, it took the cpu with it.

The Amd processors are stout, unlike their intel counter parts which have problems with degradation and such. As long as they receive proper cooling they are darn near indestructible.

You bet. I was running mad with it and play continuous CineBench testing it that skyrockets my temp up to 90 a handful of time and the CPU never went down on it's previous scores. That's resilience!!

The board is still flat overall with slightly concave IO area. Yes, it's near the VRM but it's also due to the wait these IO ports have. That could only be visible if take a look at it straight along the edge though.

Which mosfet blocks are you looking at? Only two that are still made that I know of which fit the 1.0/1.1/1.2/3.0 boards is the Enzotech WMST-88 and one of the universal Koolance blocks. I almost got the Enzotech but happened to get one of the very last EK AMD kits on massive clearance. Clear plexi too, goes perfect with this clean plexi Supremacy block smile.gif
