Hey all,

Wierd issue. Essentially my mobo crashed. The video stopped outputting to the monitor and the PC kind of "revved" essentially like when you hit the reset button and it goes low voltage for a second. I tapped the reset button to re-boot it and see if it was a windows crash, no dice. I tried a seperate HDMI cable and monitor, no dice.

Ended up taking out the GPU, reset the cmos (battery is RIGHT UNDER the gpu slot, nice place? F gigabyte), tried the mobo gpu and it worked. Then I crossed my fingers and hoped it wasn't a dead GPU, it worked.

So, essentially it comes down to my 200-400 mhz CPU OC and voltage tweak screwed it, the one I have been using for over a year now, or the memory timings I set to match the manufacturer specs killed it, which I have been using for around 9-12 months.

Anyone have experience with this one?

My temps seem fine for everything after I got it up and running, GPU is at 50 on idle, cpu is at 42, the H50 and everything seem to be working fine.

Nothing was running when it happened, except firefox and steam. The only thing that could have remotely happened is a slight power draw somewhere else in the house (lights are flickering slightly in my room right now), but I don't see why that wouldn't just shut the box down instead of disable the GPU?

And no, I haven't been OCing the GPU, so it has to be mobo related.

Thanks for the help.
