It was just a typical rounding error during prime blend.

I think it may be your ram, my 955 wouldn't post with anything higher than 400MHz on DDR2, try some different ram or different slots in the mobo if you're unable to get the CMOS to reset with the battery pulled out for a while.

Try this: turn off the PC, disconnect the power cable from the power supply and wait about a minute. Plug cable back in power supply and see if it runs. This usually works on newer Asus boards (1155 specifically) when overclocking has gone wrong but not sure if it will work for yours.

Well I may have found the problem... The computer has been unplugged this whole time, but I just went to take the video card out and to take out the video card I have to unplug the 4pin connector for the cpu. Well it was being difficult, which I just attributed to the lack of space, but when I finally got it out I noticed it was broke... it appears to have melted into its socket... Which makes me wonder if maybe the fans are idling up and down due to a poor connection.

Wow. I don't think I've ever seen something like that. Even in extremely poorly ventilated systems. Also, the voltage to the ram comes straight from the 24 pin connector, not the 8 pin one. That's just for the processor, afaik. None of your voltages are super, super high, and that leads me to believe the PSU itself was/is malfunctioning.

That is odd. I was experimenting with my temps after cleaning out the radiator and ran both prime 95 large fft and furmark on max settings at the same time and it held up just fine for the few hours I ran it, afaik. So I don't see why just running prime blend would bother it.

I just plugged it back it and wiggled the cable around some then plugged it back into the wall and it posted thumb.gif

I have a theory... So early today while that 7 hour prime blend was running when I was feeling the heatsinks to see how hot they were. I felt the back of the mobo by the mosfets and cpu socket and noticed they were pretty hot. So I wondered if maybe I could mod the case to put a fan on the back and out some of my spare copper vga ram sinks back there. I was careful not to let them touch of the exposed metal but maybe the sticky stuff holding them on is electrically conductive or some of the sodder poked through or something. I took them off while I was tinkering earlier but that still didn't allow it to post.

Anyway it's up and running now. We'll see how well now...

You have the Antec 300 right? If so, take the side panel that has the fan spot, and put it on the opposite side. The fan slot will sit right over the the back of the CPU socket area. Install a fan on the outside, might have to washer space it, blowing onto the back of the CPU socket. /WIN

That's almost genius thumb.gif haha. It was a tad be low of where I would like it and I don't feel like it will do much without the heatsinks there, that I don't dare put back on at the moment... thinking.gif

All appears to be well though. It ran fine on stock settings anyway. I will OC it again in the morning and see what happens. helmetsmiley.png

Alright... New theory... The psu can't handle pushing 1.45v to the vcore and 2.1v to the ram while running the whole system? It's happened 2 more times this morning... doh.gif
