OK guys I just got thru about 30 min of OCCT and all of a sudden poof black screen and all quiet on the set. No power nada zilch el zippo. It just turned off again. Well at least I know it's not related to the power supply. I will try to run OCCT w/o opening EU and see what happens. I will post my results in a little while.

Edit: another thing I am noticing is that One of my GPU's is running a steady 6 Deg. C hotter then the other. GPU 1 is running hotter then GPU 2. I'm also wondering if this could mean a gpu issue as well.

N2G, how do you have your VCore set up? It's possible that, if you're using ASUS' "8-phase Voltage delivery system" via enabling CPU Overvolt in the BIOS (as opposed to having this option disabled), the rig could be shutting off due to unstable power delivery.

On the A8N32-SLI Deluxe (on both examples that I've owned, in fact), I've found that this vaunted feature is actually a cause of more problems than an actual advantage. My machine also shut down unexpectedly like yours (these are different incidents to the other times the rig shut down, which were attributable to other reasons such as CoreTemp or Everest Ultimate or other causes) when I had CPU Overvolt enabled.

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Thank you txtmstrjoe, I am not using any overvolting ATM on any board. I don't like to have to do the math when it comes to setting my primary cpu corev before I F10 and save. I have done this once already and went right back into bios to see the results and I was like WTH how did it go from this to over 1.5v. So needless to say I head your advice earlier in this thread with regards to the overvolt features of these Asus mobo's. So far I'm at 22 min OCCT w/o using EU. I should know here is a little while if it is going to crash on me again.

Well so far 50 min and running strong as an ox

I found a good article about this mobo. This article claims this board to be able to hit FSB speeds of 350. I'm gonna post it over in the m2n thread but it mentions this mobo being related to the a8n32 in regards to 8 phase power exchange w/the exception for the socket breed. So if figured you might be interested.

^ This actually qualifies it for RMA Ive actually contacted Asus about not being able to set my voltage directly without it automatically reverting back to the erroneous 1.39v. They had me try a few things then sent me an RMA number. At the time I didnt have a backup board so I never sent it in. I might do that now since I have 2 spare boards.

I, personally, haven't had an issue with the A8N32's 8 phase power system. I set it and it works just fine. The variation or droop under load is the same regardless of auto voltage or 8 phase.


N2, whenever I stress test I never have anything else actively using the CPU. No IE7 or FF, or anything else other than the background processes that normally run anyway. That way if it crashes I know its not something that I was doing that caused the failure.
Good luck

Thanks BlackOmega, So far I'm at 1h10min stable at 3120Mhz DDR891.4 So I think it is safe to say that EU was the issue. I will now try to up my OC again to prior levels of success.

I will update my results.

Thanks guys,

N2G

EDIT: I upped the FSB to 225 and now I have been running strong for about an hour at 3150Mhz and DDR900

EDIT #2: I have been running at 3220Mhz now for over 2.5 hours and OCCT rock solid. FSB of 230 * 14 and DDR920 FTW I'm gonna try to push it back to my original 3300Mhz overclock.

Well it is always easier to make any mobo configuration changes or cable or hardware management changes out side of the case. How ever great care and caution must be used to observe and ensure that you dont touch any electrical circuits on the board when you have power to it.

Further more it would be wise to have a power switch pluged into the front header power switch port, that is if the mobo does not already have a power and reset button built into the mobo for testing.

Additionally I would make sure that your hardware. i.e. vid cards sound cards any type of riser card for that matter are plugged in securely and you don't have any possiblity of a card being pulled loose during testing.

Good Luck,

N2G

What for? It takes like a minute to throw a mobo in a case. I would put it in there just for safety more than anything. Not only yours but the boards as well.
I just had a notion, what if the bolt holes in the mobo serve as additional grounds for the system.
