Edit: I would say your board could be an issue, can't say for sure without more info. Personally though i would never put an 1100t in that msi 970 board, that's just asking for trouble.

Asking for trouble? Its a regular ticking bomb biggrin.gif

If xd were online it be something along these lines.

That board can't power the 125w tdp 6core, it has vrm issues, high failure rate.... Also your running aftermarket cooler which completely took away cooling from the vrm with the stock cooler (the fan blowing down on the motherboard components)


Anyway i'd put money on your problem being the motherboard, if you have money to upgrade there are some great budget options that will even allow overclocking!

^ There was recently a recorded failure on the 970A-G46 with an FX-8150, indicating no improvements over previous failure-prone designs such as the 970A-G45.

Thanks Cannon for the list, I'll take your recommendation on the Asrock.
I'm also planning on a new case because mine lacks intake and exhaust options. I was thinking about getting the Blackhawk.
Can you offer suggestions about this one or other options?

Also what do you suggest for VRM cooling??

I will post back when i receive the mobo. Hopefully with news of BSoD free happiness.biggrin.gif

Your vrm won't have an issue with a new board, msi isn't known for being good with that.

As for the case, that one is a bit pricey for what it in in my opinion, i would go with....

The ASRock is equipped with VRM cooling.

post #17 of 24
m5a97 rev2.0

full recommendation from me
I got it for ~80$ stable and overclocks easy stays cool and is pretty cheap , windows 8 ready, relative new design comes with updated bios versions and good support ( i assume it is the fact that it has TONs of options to reduce boot time no memory checks etc all can be turned off so comp boots very fast in combination with ssd and windows 8 ofc).
post #18 of 24
Well, my mobo burned my cpu (or the cpu burned the mobo), a FX-8120 at stock clocks.

The VRM protection didn't worked and the cpu the temperatures were to 200º C. The results i dont have to comment...

I have this MB (970A-G46) with a FX-8350. Using also an Hyper212 for cooling. Running @ 4.3GHz., no turbo.
I'll double check the VRM temp when I get the chance.

Northbridge temp is a bit high (90C) during gaming, so I've ordered a 40mm fan.

I'll have to try that.
