Ah, didn't know that. Thing is I wouldn't mind investing in proper water-cooling, it's just I don't know where to start. Well I guess it's time to dig deep. Got any advice?

well if your looking to get into watercooling you can look at the rasa rx kits they are great starter kits and come with everything u need if they are too pricey for u (150 for the 240 and 200 for the 360) the rs kits are still good and are $50 cheaper but don't cool quite as well as the ex series has a better radiator

I'll try here as well. smile.gif

So..I've been praising the UD3 for quite a while now. But now I have run into a BIG problem.

Was surfing the interwebz and minding my own business. Suddenly the computer shut down.No BSODs or anything. Tried to start it up again, but ended up with a constant loop. Didn't even post. Just looping every 2 seconds. Have had it running with the 8120 at 4.6GHz, 1.42V all day today. Temps has been really good. Was a bit warmer in my apartment today, so I decided to turn down the voltage and clocks.Then out of the blue this happens. Could this be the CPU or the mobo?

Have tried clearing the BIOS, kept the battery out for quite some time. Only connected the essentials (ssd, 1 stick of RAM, GPU..) Have also had it outside of the case on the motherboard box. Tried 2 PSUs. Still the same thing..

Any ideas?

I did here that there was a certain bios update that Gbyte owners were sticking with that worked best with BD. I think F6a or F6c like man said above.
The baord has a 8+2 power phase so it can handle the BD just fine, you just need the right bios support. Thats all, theres nothing wrong with the board.

I agree there is nothing wrong with the Gigabyte mobos per se. Asus had an advantage working with AMD directly on prototype mobos but even they have not sorted out all the OC'ing features for the BD based FX CPUs. Hopefully all of the mobo companies will get the details sorted in the next few months. BD is a complicated architecture that they are still learning.

Honestly, money isn't an issue. I know it's generally easier to start of with pre-built kits, but, I'd like to start with my own, barebones "n" all. It's much more fun. biggrin.gif

Dang man how unfortunate! Can you get into BIOS/UEFI? Can you try booting into safe mode? Try a different outlet in the apartment and do you have a UPS that you are plugged into?: LOOK at the VRM's and make sure there are no bulging leaky capacitors or something out of the ordinary. can you start any type of memtest? I am just trying everything I can think of. let us know any other things you discover that could possibly help?

Can't do anything. Won't make it to the BIOS at all. Tried different outlets, VRMs look fine. No buldging or leaking. And it's not possible to do a memtest. Tried all RAM I have, and it won't make any difference.
The motherboard looks fine all over. Can't see anything out of the ordinary.

Will have to pick up another CPU tomorrow and see if is that. Not really sure what's going on. frown.gif

1.525v is way to much for an H80 unless you're giving it really cool air. I don't even regard that as a healthy voltage anyway unless you have a proper water setup. I'd try find your max stable overclock with 1.47-1.48v. I'd also keep your RAM at whatever is stock, anything above 1600MHz is pretty useless unless you are benching and you'll only strain your cpus imc and hinder any overclock you attempt.
edit: 5GHz is out of the question unless you won the silicon lottery or you're prepared to invest in better cooling (i.e. a proper water loop). Or if you can find a way to feed your H80 very cold air

Are these safe temps? Also I couldnt get my ram to 2000MHZ, so I left it at auto with 1.5v, and 9-9-9-24 timings, I'd like to know how I can get my ram at 2000MHZ, manufacterer says I need 8-8-8-24 timings for 1600MHZ at 1.65v, Is this right? Also, how can I get it to 5GHZ? So much questions, I'm sorry, it's just I'm new to overclocking, it was easier overclocking my 1100T, but I digress.

The BD is rated at 1866Mhz RAM so anything up to that is just fine for the chip. Over that is overclocking. If you want to get 2000Mhz you have to loosen the timings more. Also max temp for 8 core FX cpus is 61C like said above is correct. You dont want to go over that with core temps. Also max safe voltage for 8-core FX is 1.55v so 1.525v is fine. Yeah, you dont want your chip getting that hot. Thats too hot. You should be able to get at least 4.75Ghz with x19 multi at less than 1.5v. Try doing it at 1.475v first and see if its stable and watch temps. If not stable and temps are okay then go to 1.5v. Make sure you got LLC high enough to handle Vcore drop. If its dropping too low, it wont be stable but then again you dont want it too high or it will increase too much and youll get too much heat. You should be able to get 4.75Ghz with 250mhz FSB and x19 multi with the H80. Try different voltages but dont let temps go above 60C. If its getting too hot and youve tried lowest voltage its stable at youll have to back off multi. Go down on multi x0.5 each time until stable and temps are within safe max.

If you got any other question please feel free to ask. Thats what were here for. Hope this helps, good luck.

Well if you had votlage lower than 1.42v and at 4.6GHz it should not be the cpu. I would say that its the mobo but thats my opinion. As long as temps werent outrageous. Even still the cpu will shut itself off before heat causes damage to it. I doubt its the cpu but who knows, you wont find out until you replace one of them. Have you tried reseating the cpu and then clearing cmos? I would try that see if you can get it to post. Other than that I dont know other than to replace something. Do you have a different chip to put in the board for now and try it? That way you can tell if its the board or the cpu.

Hope this helps a little. I would try reseatin the cpu and clearing the cmos and try again. If that doesnt work then something definitely needs replaced.
