Any ideas?

Are you absolutely sure? I had that happen shortly after my initial installation. I was "Farting" around, and was new to OC'ing x79. I thought I blew the chip. Might be a silly question, but did you wipe the CMOS and everything? I think I had to wait like a hour and wipe the CMOS twice ( not some arbitrary number, just didnt work the first time headscratch.gif ), then BAM. Working fine ever since.

thanks:)

just wanted to share something interesting... for a while, i thought that something was wrong with my mobo, because it just wouldn't get multi over 36 in windows. i set everything in bios, strap was working, but multi in win... no-no.
i thought that i damaged it somehow, because i had an earlier oc to 4750.
i've only managed to crack this thing a few days ago... when i start realtemp, which i was using for monitoring, the multi instantly goes to 36. it stays there even after i kill the process, and stays the same until i reboot.

anyhow... interesting ghost. if anyone else has the same problem, perhaps it could help;)

As others have said, it looks like a dead chip not board. I have already tried re-flashing the bios again. I will take out the cmos battery when i get home from work. But i doubt its that simple.

Looks like it is back to my trusty Phenom x4 955 BE for the time being.
