Long time lurker, first time Poster, I think my CPU's dying. Help please? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
Tried a third set of ram, and another processor, still didn't work, I decided to take the entire thing apart, and put it together piece by piece in case their was a loose connection somewhere, going to see how that goes. At this point, it appears to be the motherboard, as it's really the only other option I can think of at this point. I'm at least able to start it up and use it now, which I was able to do with the new parts, but it resulted in a crash about 30 minutes in. So again, we'll see how this goes and I'll post an update. At least we've ruled out the processor now.

Thanks so much for the help so far guys, I appreciate it, we'll figure it out eventually.

No luck, crashed again, the way it happens is odd. So it appears that a task will freeze upon an action, once it freezes, the next 2-3 actions I do put it into perma freeze which forces a restart. Upon restarting, It will take much longer to restart, upon booting windows, it'll blue screen, which can be avoided by cutting all power to the system for about 5 seconds, and starting it back up, which then enables me to use it again until the next crash. I hope that helps some.

Tomorrow I'm going to flash the bios of my motherboard, I'm not sure if it will help any, but I'm trying to avoid having to RMA the board at all costs.

hello,
not had long to think about it, but what is your nb and ht speed in bios please?, check there not 2200 as your cpu might not support that, and also got to that advanced tab in bios, go to northbridge and then memory thingy, disable ECC if it is enabled.

Have you changed your BIOS revision recently?

My P9X79 Vanilla completely freaked out with a new bios when I first built the machine. That USB bios flashback feature Asus puts on their newer stuff is super convenient. I'd have been RMAing a board with a bad flash if it didn't have that feature.


Other than that, it sounds like you've tried everything and the motherboard keeps coming up short. That's disappointing if true as a CHV should be better than that.

Hey there, nb and ht are at 2000. ECC was enabled, I just disabled it, here's to hoping it fixes the problem. Thanks for the response, I'll let you know how things go and if I get another crash, what is disabling ECC supposed to do?

My money's on your ram or the SSD (or a bios setting for either). From my experience, when psu is going out, system will just lock up. No mouse movement, nada. And its highly unlikely the problem is your cpu. Hope you get it fixed.

Savantstrike, I have never touched the bios revision of my motherboard before, I plan to tomorrow to try to resolve the issue.

I'm going to replace the PSU today with another working one to see if that could possibly be the issue as well, from what I've been reading around, and what some of you have suggested, the way my problem is presenting itself under load, it could be that my PSU is failing.
