Did My Amd Phenom ii X4 955 BE died?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello guyz im new here...sorry if i mistakenly posted on the wrong section of the forum...

i just wanna ask sumtin...

yesterday my pc wont boot after i manually changed the voltage of my amd phenom 955 be to 1.475...

before that , i was running at 4.1 ghz with the voltage set to auto in bios...and cpu-z shows the voltage adjusted it self within the range of 1.45-1.472..the temp was 40C idle and 58-59c full load on prime95...i have no issues like bsod or anything all was just fine...

then , ive manually set voltage at bios to 1.475 then the pc just wont boot up , no beep no nothin just black screen...the monitor led was orange (blue if active)

ive tried all this things..

reset cmos
take out cmos battery
take everthing apart and reattached

lastly ive just swap my old cpu in my mobo...and the pc booted up and all..

so is it fair to say my amd phenom 955 be is dead?..or is it the mobo or psu didnt supply enough power to my amd phenom 955 be..coz my old cpu just use 1.25v..

my pc specs..

amd phenom ii x4 955 be (new cpu)
amd phenom x3 8650 (old cpu)
gigabyte ma770-ud3 - mobo
gigabyte amd radeon hd 6950 - gc
2x2gb dual channel kingston hyperX 1066 - ram
cooler master Extreme Power 550w - psu...

Sounds like PSU problem rather than a CPU problem....the Denebs are safe upto 1.55 V

so guyz...even though my pc boot up just fine using my old 1.25v processor there is still a possibility that the power supply was the culprit?

Try clearing the CMOS. take out the silver circular battery on your motherboard for 10-15 minutes. Then put it back in and try booting

Damn that sucks dude, i have the same CPU and i ran mine @ 4.0Ghz for a while i just restored mine to stock cause of winter time, heating.. but i havnt experienced any problems with it dieing on me. like that, maybe reset cmos and insert one ram stick closet to the CPU (Left Ram Slots) and see if that works, I did that when i overclocked wrong and somehow it booted the CPU back up again (Yea weird ??).

i would check the PSU,550w is a little lower to be running an overclocked 955 and a hd 6950.
