Hi!
I have this motherboard on my new config since 3 weeks. all appends well at beginning but it's getting worse since few days (of course the mb should be not responsible)

Config

Corsair Obsidian 700D
Seasonic X-650 - Power supply 650W ATX 12V/EPS 12V - 80PLUS Gold
ASUS SABERTOOTH X58
Intel Core i7 950
Noctua NH-U12P SE2
G.Skill RL Series RipJaws 12 GoPC3-10666
Intel X25-M Mainstream - SSD 120 Go 2.5"
2 Samsung EcoGreen F3 - HD153WI - 1.5 To 5400 RPM
Sapphire Radeon HD 6870
LG CH10LS20 - Blu-ray
ASUS Xonar Essence STX

no overclocking

The problem is a king of savage reboot (even with the computer not in charge)
The computer restarts and reboot more & more sooner until not restart at all
I have to cut power supply a moment in order to make all restart.
The first times, i have been quiet for few days after that, but since 2 days it cant's hold two hours...


I start to test with unpluging all that's not needed (disc, player, pci card) in order to see if the power supply is too week, but it change nothing
I test the ram one by one on each slot same result
So i test with my oldcomputer 500w corsair power supply and it seems more stable (no reboot in two hours) But i couldn't test more for this time (harsh plug with the two tower side by side : ))
I'll test more seriously & longer tonight.

It seems quite a good option but a post found on the net made me doubt

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/284144-30-asus-sabertooth-trouble-please

quite exaltly the same symptome. Could be another thing than the power supply, a problem with the mb?

have you any clue i should test?

well, before sending back any hardware, i would like to be quite sure of my diagnostic in order to avoid waste of time.

thanks a lot!

I'm running 0702, I currently am not stable past 3520 mhz with an i7 940. I am @ 1.288 vcore and 1.25 QPI.

The other bummer is that I'm having to run the RAM at 1280 mhz(2:8). It doesn't like the 2:10 divider.

It seems that it's the memory controller or board that's holding me back because I can bump the multi to 23x and bump vcore a little and I can pass prime for an hour before bsod'ing with error code 124, but if I bump ram divider to 2:10 to get to stock ram speeds, it bsod's quickly.

Any one have success overclocking a C0 chip or overclocking with the 0702 bios?

Try running memtest, I was unstable at stock speed and voltages with 12 GB. I had to up the QPIv to 1.25v and the dram to 1.65v to run 1600 @ 10-10-10-27, which is rated speeds for my sticks. Memtest would fail immediately for me at the default QpIv of 1.2v.

Jeke, try reseating the Noctua HSF as well. Could be overheating.

It helps indeed.. thanks! I shall indeed do the twin 570's with my HX750w before worrying about upgrading to the HX1000w.... I suspect it will be fine!

thanks again..:-)

Check PSU longer. Might be a problem there.
Also a constant restart makes me think of loose cables that make/loose contact, did you check all the plugs into your mobo?

It was exactly that, i just finish to close my tower.

I was just about to switch the power supply and when i unscrewd the new one i see that a cable was not prefectly in ... Tle "clip" was'nt done, and the cable was tight because of the size of the tower so day after day it unplugged... And as i had push it regurarly i had some quiet moment but not enough to resolved it X )

For my defense it was the one the less reachable ^^, but i should had unplugged & replugged all the cable earlier, my fault.

i prefered feel a little stupid but don't have to send anything to the seller is quite a good ending : )

thank you all anyway!
