Specs

Intel i5 4670K @ 3.8Ghz
Corsair H80i
Asus Maximus Impact VI
Corsair Vengeance 16Gb 2 x 8gb 1866Mhz
GTX 770 2Gb
Samsung 840 Evo 120 & 250 Gb


I had a new system built for me which included the Asus Maximus VI Impact. The system arrived and all I had to do was install windows, the system worked great for a few weeks. Then one day, I had recorded some gameplay footage from Titanfall using the shadowplay feature. I was editing the footage in Windows Movie Maker and all of a sudden the system locked up, keyboard would not work, mouse locked up. The only way I could get it to respond was to do a hard restart.

It doesn't seem to be just movie maker, it can lock up when watch youtube videos, general browsing of the internet using various browsers. The odd thing is, is that the freezing doesn't occur when playing games. I can play titanfall for three hours and the system does not miss a beat.

I tried doing a fresh install of windows 7 on the 120gb ssd and still froze, fresh install of windows 7 on the 250gb ssd, still froze. So I purchased Windows 8.1 and installed this onto the system and still same thing it froze. The PC passes all stress tests, Memtest, AIDA, Graphics card has been stressed too. I have tried rolling back drivers of the graphics card and still freezes.

All drivers are upto date in device manager, when the freeze occurs there is no BSOD and when I restart the system and go to Event Viewer there is nothing that stands out at the point the computer froze. The memory has been changed twice and cpu has been changed once.

So I can only come to the conclusion that it's either the motherboard or PSU. This problem is driving me crazy!

Has anyone else experienced this problem before with a Maximus VI Impact? Just trying to rule out the motherboard before I have to RMA it.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Maybe look at your event viewer in administrative tools to see if anything is happening that is being reported. After a crash you can go see what happened within the last hour.

If anyone is opening their case for maintenance or something, would you mind measuring the width and depth of the space where the CPU cooler fits?

I just got my Impact installed and running in my SG05 with a 4770k & my 780 ti. Its such a powerhouse for such a small package. Can anyone point me in the right direction to start Overclocking this board. it seems to be a bit different than the gigabyte board i am coming from.

Thanks . is this how the asus boards are overclocked now? or do they still use the bios?
post #738 of 1272
You can use bios still and use this. Either way

Just watched that video from start to finish and seems our Impact mobos doesnt use the exact software that was used in the video since their are no TPU settings under advance settings under the 4 way optimization tab. I can only pick from 4.2ghz, 4.4ghz, and 4.6ghz under cpu speeds. is that the same for the rest of you.

Hey guys,

I've had my Impact up and running for about 6 months now, but hit a problem today: I heard a pop & smelt a burnt component! The rig instantly died, but would boot fine after that. The smell is came from the power PCB, so I'm guessing a cap blew mad.gif I overclock I had was 4.4GHz @ 1.275V (4770K), so I doubt it's down to that...

1. If my rig still OK to use until I get the board swapped out? I'm guessing it would mean I'm down to 7+2 phases if a cap took out one of them.
2. How hot should the heatsink on the power board get? Mine gets so hot I can barely keep my fingers on it for too long. The whole rig gets plenty of air! (Prodigy built with a 200mm intake fan at the front).

Thanks for the help guys!
