fried my i5 - Page 2

post #11 of 31
I thought this was going to be a extreme AMD fan boy thread where he threw his intel i5 into a deep dryer.. Sigh was a let down.

What voltage did you have running through the CPU, RAM AND NB?

Sorry to hijack, what do vrm look like/mosfets?

Are they the black blocks that have 1R2 on them? I have many of those.

If it is a FoxConn socket and you had too much voltage going to it it may be the socket & the cpu... Check for damage to both...

Otherwise its probably your board as stated above about the mosfets.... Try contacting MSI for an RMA...

Due to lack of proper cooling on the chipsets and VRM's I had an MSI P55-G55 burn and melt on me with a mild overclock recently.


Thanks for the feedback. Good to know.

I already had a freezer 7 pro rev.2 installed since the stock fan on the i5 was way too loud. I have a msi P55A-G55 mobo which has really sparse options in the bios so it was hard following the i5 overclocking guides. I've overclocked before but I was still kinda doing everything by trial and error. I messed around with my voltage settings a bit and seemed to get a decently stable overclock after a few crashes and bsods. I ran prime95 with large FFTs tests and checked my core temps after a few minutes and it was averaging out at around 79C. Now I'm sure I had a complete retard moment since I should have stopped right there but I let it run and my computer powered off. I could smell the distinct smell of burning in the air and I knew I had really ****ed it up now.

I tried changing the thermal paste on the cpu and reset the CMOS battery but no luck. When I tried to power it on, it would light up for a second and then power off, no display at all. Is my i5 completely dead? Would I be able to RMA it?
I got to the bold area before I decided the diagnosis is burnt motherboard. That one is a budget motherboard and is not one of the budget boards that handles overclocking well if at all. I had one burn up on me as well

BTW this sounds eerily similar to what happened to me lol http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...-p55-gd55.html

Check the back of your board or the area right around the socket for burn marks - sure you might find some.

No way this is kind of scaring me. I have the same setup... EDIT: dif mobo though

Mobo- GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128425

CPU- i5 Lynnfield 2.8Ghz OC@ 3.6 stable
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115067


I got 97C during a 7.5min intel burn test 3x on max (2.4GB) and it said stable. I just OC this yesterday. I idle at 50C and 80C when I play bf2bc2. I've had no problems though. Is this safe? I might get a CM212 now...

Voltage 1.17 (up from 1.10 stock)
BLCK 174 (or close)
Multiplier 21(+1 for turbo)

of all the mobo/CPU faliure issure I have seen about 97 percent were mobo deaths and the other three were CPU deaths.

You need better cooling for your cpu - cpu temps mean nothing when it comes if your board can handle the voltage... It's two different things.


Your board is a step up for sure from the MSI board, 2 extra power phases isn't much but it's more, and you at least have an 8 pin.

I wouldn't feel good about OC'ing on it though - not if it would be costly to replace.
