My refurbished Intel Build Log

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've had an Intel core i7 920 sitting around since like 2011, finally found A refurbished X58 Board at the Micro Center here in Boston for $100

figured, why the hell not. it's the only one they have and it looks like it was RMA'd to Asus by the store, and this is what they got back.

it looked like it had bent pins when I opened the box which was not comforting, but everything seems to work biggrin.gif

parts used:

CPU: Intel Core i7
Motherboard: Asus P6X58-E Pro
PSU: NEX750G 750 Watts Gold Certified
memory: 2x2GB of Hyundai Electronics DDR3 1333
GPU: GTX 470 SC w/ AXP Cooler

its mostly a test bench atm I'm going to be throwing in another GPU and putting in a better cooler once I know it works.


right now I am just concerned about the mobo anyone have any good ideas I can do to test if its fully functional?




Pictures smile.gif


GPU had some ramsinks fall off, so I had to fix them before beginning


Ramsinks installed

Motherboard Box (note refurb stickers etc etc):

only accessories that came with the mobo:

im having USB disconnect/reconnect issues now.

think it could just be windows 8?

it will disconnect and reconnect probably 3 or 4 times in 10 seconds

when I manage to click on the culprit in device manager I get the error:

"A request for the USB device descriptor failed"

it seems totally random and intermittent
