Also boxed up the H50, 5830, RAM and CPU since I can't be having those just lying around all over the place. Kinda weird, taking apart my 2 week old system and putting it all back in the boxes, as if my trial period is over or something.
I keep going over that MB with a flash-light, can't find a single sign of anything happening to it. The more and more I ponder this, the more I think the MB is bad and PSU was just doing its job of shutting off the circuitry due to a short. I hope the next board, if mine is shot, doesn't do this...I will be going for that 4.0GHz overclock again. If it fails again, I'll just demand a refund from MSI and go with another brand 890fx.
Yep, probably the motherboard, sorry but 2 out of 2 experts here agree. I have ALL the mobo bios codes if you really want them. I just need to know who made the chip. You know, it shows on boot, Phoenix, Award, AMI, would help if I had the version number too. But, it's gotta be soon, I have tomorrow and maybe Saturday.
That's 4 of us now johnny, RMA the mobo and the chip, don't spend money shipping the PSU unless you already have. I knew Rockrs chip went out on him!
@ Everybody on this thread!
I may be here some on Thursday night. I might be here on Saturday, mostly at noon, then night. I'll probably be gone Sunday and after that it's going to be hit and miss.
I don't have a key in my hands yet, but probably Friday this thing is going to come to an end!! We will sign the papers then 3 days later we get handed the keys!! Then a whole lot of you know what hits the fan becuase we have to fix the house before we can even put a box in it. Handicapped ramps gotta go up.
The furnace has to be replaced and air conditioning installed, the water heater will be changed to "on demand" gas, gas lines have to be cut and capped that the last idiots put in there illegally, we have to run lines for the new gas oven (it's electric now), we has to put up firewalls where they took them out. You'd be amazed how much someone can mess up a house in only 18 months of living there and they aren't responsible because they are in Bankruptcy proceedings, even though he's a high paid logger in Oregon.
So, for about a month I will be hit and miss. Three people have my e-mail addy, feel free to e-mail me if you guys want. You know who you are!!
So, right quick if you need anything out of my brain or my book then you better ask now! I guess I could send the book to Enigma for a while, there will probably be
No, forget that, it doesn't come out every year, it's every 2 or 3. So yeah, I have to send some stuff to Enigma, I might as well give him the book for a while. If it's alright with him. I just PM'ed you Boss!
Otherwise, PM someone who knows thier stuff. Rockr is here almost every day, knows AMD like the back of his hand. Enigma may not be here Every day but it is his thread
, he started all this. Lots of you know the case and case modding. All you need me for is some intel / Nvidia stuff, a little watercooling and if you need that, ask Rockr and he'll get hold of me. Won't you Rockr??
Otherwise you have until maybe Tuesday for anything you need out of me.
needs that CAD drawing
of the window. Someone needs to get me the measurements I asked for or you won't get it untill I'm re-settled and get this stupid trailer sold.
Enigma will have the book some time next week, if there's anything old, unusual or obscure, he can find it in there. Except water cooling, if you need help there don't just go to the thread and ask, most have no idea how water works in a Scout. I'm not saying don't ask there but make sure you verify it will work by asking here too. Know this, I did custom water in a Scout with an O/C'ed intel proc/ mobo and it didn't work, you have to be carefull how you set it up. There will soon be another couple of wet foot experts here.
He doesn't show it in his sig line but look at this: http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...l-edition.html
He's going to know a lot when he's done. He has some very fine experts at his beck and call. Just don't pester him too much, we all have things to take care of. Sorry for outing you mr-Charles.Edited by BriSleep - 6/22/10 at 9:29pm
