that an already "bricked" board can not be recovered.
When I got my g7k, I experienced the same issue, hinting that its cause lies in the architecture of the platform in combination with high RAM overclocks by increased refclock. Following my report about this on here, @bluej511
pointed out that Gigabyte have a recovery procedure, which was also stated in my post earlier today in this thread. This procedure can recover a g7k.
Ever since this was discovered, I have been using quotation marks around the word describing an unrecoverable failure, hinting it's no longer valid meaning.
The important part is not the meaning of the word 'brick', but when it was used and it what context. So please, @SpeedyVT
, stop **** posting. Thank you.
Following up on the recovery procedure, there have been reports of C6H boards also being successfully recovered by a similar method. The only difference seems to be that you need to let the board decharge much longer (~ 2 days), compared to the 30s on the G7K. This could be due to differences in hardware components and board architecture, but also due to user error.
, are C6H recoverable by removing the cmos battery for "extended periods" of time? And if yes, is there an official recovery procedure guide, like the one Gigabyte provides?
