have you tried the gpu on another pc? a friends perhaps? take your hd and gpu and reinstall windows on his/her pc with your gpu..see if it works..if it does..then its just the mobo..
good one..hope the new board works out for you.
well why not still try rma with asrock..they might be feeling compelled to help you seing as we are airing an issue not most are willing to AIR..
But shouldn't a faulty GPU or PCI-E slot cause regular issues, and not only this one?Also, if it was the GPU's problem, i believe that installing windows 8 without the GPU, or with another PCI-E GPU plugged in would have ran just fine (And I think at some point i've tried installing 8 with a spare 9500GT i have lying around, with no luck).Also, i just remembered that for one day, my GPU ran on a friend's PC which had W8.1 installed on it. Drivers installed fine, worked fine, performed fine under load. The thing is that my computer runs fine, my GPU runs fine both overclocked and not, for more than two years now.Windows 7 works completely fine (Except last month, that it had that reboot issue). I stopped trying to fix this, because it won't matter from now on. Probably tomorrow i'm getting my new Gigabyte board.
It was and still is a tricky one though. I have talked with a lot of people about this problem and everyone told me that this is probably one of the weirdest problems they've ever heard about! For one and a half year I tried just about everything that came to mind, or other advised me to, every possible combination of hardware, and it's that. It's the motherboard.I don't know what could stop me from destroying it to bits when the UD3H arrives. I mean I can't even sell it. It's broken.
