Let us know

Good luck
tried my friends psu that works fine, and no problems.
ive turned all my oc's to stock and it seems to run okay...however i dont understand why they wont work now, they where running stable for a year or more? what would cause them to become unstable?

Joshn, perhaps a component is failing in your machine. Have you had a chance to re-run memtest on your memory? Make sure your running tests 5 and 8 each for at least an hour. You can download memtest by going here: http://www.overclock.net/downloads/1...memtest86.html.
Did you fully test your overclock for stability when you first start OC'ing?

Good luck

ill run memtest again tonight. although i think its unlikely that both my sets of ram are failing, i also tried individual sticks and Dims. i think it must be my mobo, i had a bit of trouble with it not booting and different beeping error codes, i got everything from power failure, DRAM failure to BIOS Failure lol.
I also tried a diffrent GP, didn't help much.

i suppose if it was my motherboard, it would explain why my overclocks no longer work.

and yes i did test my overclock for stability when i first started.

Joshn, if does end being a bad motherboard you could always check with GA to see if you can RMA it. Here is there RMA website if your curious: http://rma.gigabyte-usa.com/DirectRMA/EndUser_Main.asp.

Good luck buddy and let us know if memtest passes

ok mem test says there is no errors what so ever, so i guess its down to either cpu or mobo.

anyway to test that they are working fully?

im also beginning to have trouble booting, it will freeze before the bios comes up and there is no signal to the monitor

Joshn, if anything I would lean more on a bad motherboard. It's very difficult to damage a processor. Do you happen to have a spare S939 motherboard that you could test with? Sorry if this was already mentioned.

Good luck
