wow ok so it was running earlier.. at this point without being there i'm out of ideas. unless someone see something i'm not. bummer. your call on rma. do you have a way of testing that power supply? another system maybe? I cant tell what has failed.. What are you using for a power switch? are you jumping the power switch pins?

Yes god works in mysterious ways lol...
Psu is working fine in another system.
Unfortunately i dont have another 1155 i can use to somehow minimize the options... What should i conclude, mobo or cpu?

It is impossible for me to tell you that... In your video what where you using to power on the board i dont see a pwr switch hooked up. were you jumping the pwr switch pins? and personally i would never run a board outside a case like that. but thats just me. just like knowing everything is grounded.

Yes now that im trying to solve this, im jumping the pwr switch, the problem occurred when mounted in a case.

i belive i've found the issue to my problems. I took out my CPU and found that some of the pins were askew. I'm going to assume that due to them not alighning correctly I was getting faulty readings and random crashes. Mostly System exception errors, IRQL errors and at one point CPU clock errors. I belive the pins got mashed and jostled by the many re-seats of my waterblock and the frequent changing of my thermal paste. W.akakuu, check the pins on your motherboard socket.If they are indeed bent you might have to RMA as they are impossible to fix..you can try but you'll find them to be extremly delicate.

Now, I am not positive that this is the issue but looking at the pins...I'm pretty sure it is. I have already ordered a new board from microcenter and plan to be up and running on a new system by tomorrow afternoon. If this fails then I know its the CPU...but I highly doubt it as everything was running fine till i took out the CPU and then put it bck in. CPU light stayed solid red. I am going to have the CPU tested anyway just to rule that out.

Thought on my Hypothesis?

I would say you are on the right track. I'm staring at the socket pins now and i can see where constant in and out of cpu even if careful could easily damage it.

I cringe every time I close the retention bracket on an Intel processor.

I hope you get your motherboard/CPU issues straightened out, Blatsz32. Bum parts are no fun.

Checked my pins on the socket and they all seem fine,,, the strange thing is that this all started at a normal startup, i wasnt messing with the cpu.

Hey guys, I just got the SABERTOOTH BEAST yesterday, assembled it. Got a few question that i hope you guys would help me with.

OC temp
1) My I5 2500K processor is overclocked @ 4.5ghz, V: 1.3. I am getting around 33C on idle and 68C (with prime95) with my H100 cooler, ambient is around 24 - 26C. Is it normal???

MOBO mini Fan
2) How do you guys adjust the mini fan in your MOBO? 1 intake and 1 exhuast or???

Attaching case fan to MOBO
3) I am currently using a CM Storm Trooper case and right now i am attaching my bottom(1) and front(2) intake fan to the front panel. My H100 radiator fan(2) to the pump and i had change the fan to CM excalibur, rear exhuast is currently attached to the MOBO.
Question is, should i change the fan connection directly to the MOBO so that i can control the fan speed using Fan Xpert II because right now it seems like my fan is not running at their full potential.

Any other suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Will post pic of my rig soon!!!
