Can you really RMA a board that you probably killed?

I'm more so curious as to what failed on the motherboard. I mean it is geared as an overclocking mobo and the only thing that really should have failed was the CPU.

But eithr way driving home from a cookout yesterday I seen someone throwing out a computer so I nabbed it. I tend to do that a lot to salvage parts and build systems for friends and family members. Well... There wasnt a damned thing wrong with it so I just did the system restore and will be selling it to go toward a just in case mobo fund lmao

It was a hp dx2450, prob will bump up the memory and hard drive on it though sinc ei have some laying around

IT'S ALIVE!!!!

After sitting all night pretty much completely gutted I decided to try it one last time, and it powered on!

Messing with it now and restoring all defaults.

Well I got in to the bios and set everything back to factory settings and reboot

Once I rebooted the bios screen never really comes up like it did before it has something that says efi shell version 2.00 [4.640]
current running mode 1.1.2
Map: cannot find required map name
Press esc in 1 seconds to skip startup.nsh any other key to continue

Another note, I somehow lost one of my ssd drives it will not show up anymore

And a final note it will not boot with the xms 3 memory and the vengance memory in the system, only the vengeance memory

If you have a microcenter near, get a new board, test it, if it works, return it and RMA yours.

Also, take note that a lot of MSI tends to die, AMD and Intel.

Well the bios was working it just flew by, the efi shell thing was just the default boot device since the raid had failed due to the dead ssd

Reinstalling windows now (took my other 120gb vertex out of my laptop lmao)

Let's see how it goes.

Going to test the xms3 memory in my htpc to see if it is working or not

got everything setup, and installed, been chugging away for a few hours now. Had my son put it through it's paces with some games since I have my kids tonight. Problem is now I have my kids tonight and am back at my place (was at fiances for a few days I have my kids half time) and had the AC off in my house so it is 85 degrees in my room right now. But idle my cores @ 4.7GHz are about 36c

Didn't get a chance to test the memory or SSD in another machine so will have to do that later and see if an RMA is needed. No clue why they both would have died since the only thing messed with was CPU. Ahh well, as long as it is all working lol

BTW with the p67 I thought the MSI CD installed the Intel Matrix storage manager, I was going to enable write back cache on my RAID 0 array. Guess I have to hunt it down and download it.

I put the XMS 3 memory in to another mahcine running a i5-750 and it works??? Still will not work in the i7-2600k system though, as soon as I put it in it does the endless reboot thing. Seems odd to me since it worked for the first few hours it was installed in the 2600k system.

The SSD however, is D-E-D dead.

and even after all of this.... I am still tempted to get it to 5GHz again LMAO I know I can do it! I had it there, temps were a little high though... but I'm scared it might zap another SSD on me like it did previously when it failed. I have no clue why it would have did the memory and SSD like that, it baffles me to no end!!!!!

well looks like unless I am willing to go past 1.4V I am out of the 5.0GHz club I have tried and tried and cant even get it stable at 4.9GHz at 1.4V

I'm afraid to go past 1.4V because of the last problem I had where two sticks of memory stopped working in this system and one 120GB Vertex 2 SSD died.

There is no reason either of the above should have happened with only raising the CPU Voltage. I have a feeling there has to be some design flaw for that to of happened with this motherboard. If I were using some average HDDs (I have a ton of WD blacks availible to me) then I might try above 1.4V

testing at 4.8GHz @ 1.385V now 1.39 was ok but trying to ease the voltage down. Temps under load seem to be all over the place from 63-70c under load (core 0 63c, core 1 66c, core 2 70c and core 3 68c)

@ 4.6GHz I can use 1.31V and idle at 30-32c across the cores, and 59-63c load across the cores.

I wonder, what kind of power supply you using mate, cause this sounds like a cheap power supply issue here..

Well At first I had a Silverstone 700W 80+ (just looked up the model # it is a SilverStone ST70F-ES ), since then (and when the mobo was rebooting and thought the PSU was bad possibly) I traded out that PSU with another system I had here that didnt need as much power and put in an Ultra 850W 80+ I dont think it is the X3 or X4, it's not modular and has a Blue LED Fan in it (I have replaced the stock fans on the HAF 922 with the 200mm Blue LED fans)

Can;t remember the model off hand and it's late so don;t feel like tearing apart the PC to look lmao. Maybe tomorrow.

I know ultra isn;t always known for being good for thier 80+ silver rating on some of thier PSUs but they seem to skid in at just 80+ (judging by reviews)
