X99 problems... second, third and four RMA!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
http://www.overclock.net/t/1578780/asus-x99-deluxe-first-ever-rma-in-15-years
- 9 months on.. it's all happening again..

June - Corsair AX1200i PSU RMA'd.. sent it back to Corsair, they sent me a new one.
July - New PSU back in, working fine..

then one dark cold day, my 'TUF' X99 Sabertooth (replaced the X99 Deluxe) shut down and never booted back up again.

I have an i7 5960X which has been running sweet, i do lots and lots of rendering work on Adobe Premiere and Adobe Lightroom exporting timelapse footages etc..

Anyways, took it back to the store, they said they didn't have any LGA2011-3 HASWELL-E cpu's to test on my X99 Sabertooth, so they tested my CPU on a new the new Broadwell-E Gigabyte X99 Phoenix-SLI. No post. CPU is dead...... RMA'd...

Meanwhile i still had suspicion that the X99 Sabertooth is dead also, so that went back for RMA too..

So now I am left with a brand new i7 6800K and Gigabyte X99 Phoenix-SLI that the store had 'loaned' me while my other parts have been sent for RMA..

then the craziest thing happened.. Brand new CPU + MOBO, Brand new GTX 1070, Brand new PSU, 4 x DDR4 Corsair Dominator 2666mhz ram sticks..

Reformatted and was in windows fine. then next day it shuts down.. and the SAME problem is now occuring, only that CPU and MOBO post, but i am getting random BSOD's on ever format.

Things I have tried;

- updated BIOS Gigabyte X99 Phoenix-SLI to latest
- use only ONE stick of ram
- have formatted and tested on TWO different brand SSD's (old Vertex 4 and a 850 EVO)
- no USB's plugged in

I am about to bring all these components back to the store and get an entire refund..
I have been building computers for 15-16 years and this is the craziest troubleshooting i have had to do.

anyone have any ideas?

How good is the power to the socket. Cos to me that sounds like a power issue is blowing things up. Could be a short to the case?

Or the worst luck I've even seen.

Is there a standoff you forgot to remove or something causing a short?

the issue I am having is I am unable to install fresh clean Win7 64 or Win10 64bit onto my 'securely erased' SSD's (yes two of them)

it seems like a hardware issue.. but how can it be when everything is new.. power is going to the components - just windows is not stable

getting BSOD on both Win7 and Win10!

You say it's the same problem occurring yet then go on to say the system is still able to POST, only that it's now unstable. So it's not the same problem at all. At this stage I would get the shop to build whatever replacement parts are sent to you, and test the system for you. Anything else is just going to drag this thread along unnecessarily, especially if you use the system for work.

Make sure the system is at optimised defaults, and XMP is not applied when installing the OS.
