i5 2500k dead? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Hi, I have got my cpu at 4.5GHz and overclocked my GPU to 900MHz @ 1.075V, is that ok for a GTX 570 Directcu ii? then I did the 3D mark11 and only got 4406! I am thinking this was cos I had 4GB of RAM but its dual channel and CL&, its pretty good right?

I just built a PC with a p8z68 and i had the same problem. I would boot and i'd get a CPU led, re-setting the CPU didn't do anything. I also didn't start getting these errors until after i had fully installed windows with a raid0 set up, and switched from a test bed monitor to my desktop monitor. Ocassionaly it would boot, maybe 1 in 25 boots lol. I removed the video card and it seemed to boot more consistantly but still not 100%. I removed the soundcard and it's been booting fine for a couple weeks now, w/ the video card that seemed to be causing problems. I also had the VGA led, after i removed the GPU. I read Asus support and they told me to clean the gold connectors on the card with "a rubber". The sound card was old, and had some sort of build up on it, the rubber seemed to work good on cleaning the gold connectors, but i never tried to put it back in my system.

The leds seemed to do more harm then good, so if you see one on just know that somethings wrong, and it's probably not the component specified.

If it was working when you were removing components it could be either the mobo or power supply, I'd guess the power supply though.
