fx 8320 starting with only four cores MY Last HOPE

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Its only a 2month old build..
I just ran a prime 95 test on my pc and the pc gets restarted after that pc gets into boot loop it won't start after that just boot loop mad.gif The pc only start only after I disabled four cores from the bios This is not the first time happened with me I used to reset my Bios and format my pc to get it working except prime 95 my pc passed most of the stress testing like Intel Burn TEST
BUT this time i am not able to format my pc whenever I try to format my pc it just gets restart while on the loading on the Loading Screen:devil: but if I disable my four cores it works perfectly...
I haven't bought this processor to work as a four cores processor amd you are testing my patience or this my motherboard fault I am having asus m5a78 lx v2 I know it is Not a Good a Motherboard but I think it can Handle fx series at STock setting

My other sytem specs
psu:corsair vs550
ram :Kingston Hyperx REd 4gb
graphic card:sapphire hd7850

I tried almost all possible settings from the bios I tried 3 different bios version all possible voltages cleared cmos using jumpers on the motherboard nothing helped

This post is my last hope the service centres are very far from my home what should I do..? plss guys any suggestion pls help
I Think I got the super Bad chip:p

have you tried unplugging everything.. cpu/mem/hdd.gpu. and re seating them all??.. try that and go from there
post #3 of 40
do the same with all power con to the mobo.

It could be something as simple as a stand off shorting out something on the back of the motherboard. Take your build and put it on the box the mobo came in. The cardboard grounds it out fairly well to rule out the case being a problem.

I think there's an issue with the board. It appears that it can't power the full 8 cores anymore. Do yourself a favour and get something that more suited to that CPU. I think it may have been damaged when you were stress testing.

Welcome to OCN smile.gif

Before you go off complaining about AMD and the 8320, take a look at the board specs by ASUS:
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A78LM_LX/#specifications

Although it supports FX CPUs, it also clearly states that it only supports up to 95w CPUs.
It had worked with your 8320, but it isn't designed for such hungry CPUs which put a strain on the VRM circuitry and other components.

Get a different mobo and your CPU should function normally.

^^^^This. That board wasn't designed at all for your CPU. I'm assuming you're Indian, like me, so get this board instead.

It's no overclocking monster, but it'll do your CPU at stock just fine. It supports CPUs upto 140w.

^^^^ even 125w boards can barely run the 8 cores and that is why its recommended to run the 140w ones. You didnt happen to try and update your bios and place a fan on the vrms, i would say your vrms are overheating since there is no heatsink on them, place a fan blowing directly on them and maybe add some gpu memory heatsinks or something to them if you plan on trying to keep that board

I've seen people run with the M5A78L USB3 and FX 8350 just fine. It's perfectly OK if you're gonna run stock. The OP's board on the other hand, won't. It's the LX model, which has a 95w limit.
