Killed my Crosshair V Formula Z, Smoke and all! - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
So, I picked up my new board today plugged in the bare minimum, and it would seem that my CPU is fried. Same error, won't post, CPU LED is on, FF q code. ***! When I take my old mobo back to the shop tomorrow I will pick up another. When I return the board should I give them the CPU too?

Yes, take the CPU too, they might not do anything about it but can try it and you'll be sure which part is broken. I would check that PSU too, having 3 unknowns out of 4 parts, makes it harder to solve problem. .

I was able to get my hands on another reliable PSU and tried it with both the new and old board, the only common factor was the CPU, and results were the same. Though that doesn't necessarily mean that my PSU isnt faulty... Lol it would be just my luck that the 12v rail in my PSU is fried and prob my RAM too tongue.gif

With that much damage to the MB I would not be surprised if some other components did not go to the "great computing grounds in the sky."

An update for anyone who is interested: I got my old board back, fully repaired, so a special thanks to mtrai fir convincing me that it was worth sending it back. I still had to fork out for a new CPU, but I guess thems the breaks when you wanna push the limits.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread, your help was very much appreciated.
