i7 2600K died. what should i do?  

post #1 of 88
Thread Starter 
So the past few couple of weeks have been very sad.
To keep a long story short, my beloved i7 2600k died out on me and according to Intel there is nothing that can be done.
At first i thought it was an issue with my motherboard, but i requested an RMA and got a replacement board from ASUS.
Turns out the issue is the CPU.

So what does one do in this particular situation? im dreading the fact that i'll probably have to spend $360 on a new processor, but is it worth it at this point?

The i7 2700k is on sale for $319.99 right now at a place close to home. Is it worth picking up?

I would use this oppertuinity to build a new system, but ive already dropped a few coins on my system and it is still fairly new... built around September/October-ish. The system i refer too is the one listed in my profile for anyone wanting to check out specs.

Any advice would be great. It feels like i caught between a rock and a hard place frown.gif

What do you mean there is nothing Intel can do? How have they come up with that conclusion?

Before requesting an RMA, was the system overclocked? if so what kind voltages did you run etc?

How did the processor die? If you didn't run 1.52+V on it, you should get a replacement.

This is going to sound extremely noobish of me, but i went into the bios and i believe i accidently changed the voltage of something by accident. when i saved and quit, the compouter was booting up and all i remember was hearing my cpu cooler reving. i didnt think anything of it at the moment. then the system just shut down. havent been able to post with it since.

at first i thought it was the motherboard so i spent a week attempting many tricks to clearing the cmos, using a second bios, removing the motherboard battery. nothing worked.

I contacted asus and they sent me a replacement board which i recieved yesterday. hooked up the new board and still get the same problem. no posting.

my board has a debug led. on my particular board i get an erroe code of "d0" which indicates a cpu error.

I explained everything to Intel and they said they dont cover damage caused by voltage

Can you try and be a bit more specific. Which ever voltage you changed, if it is under the Intels recommended range then you will be under warranty.

EDIT:

It begs the question, do you have any overclocking experience?

oh damn, sounds like you may have fried it. Why change voltages when you don't know what you are doing?rolleyes.gif

Any burn marks underneath the CPU where the pins are?

I don't think there's anything you can do about it as it is your mistake. I'm sorry for your lost dude. If you really need 8 threads, get the 2700k. If you can wait until April/May, might as well get Ivy
post #10 of 88
as far as you could know the rma board you sent to asus took out your cpu as well it is really hard to lay the blame and warranty issues. wording the indicent differently might ahve got a different result. either way though intel should cover the warranty because voltage just doesn't kill chips the unmanaged heat and consistant harsh voltage will end all. see if intel would atleast accept it and test it for you on their perhalf. before they even deny an rma.

pm me if you wanna down grade to a x58 rig as it would solve your computer issue until your cash re ups and i woudn't mind throwing 300 at a new chip biggrin.gif
