My brand new B3 ASUS P8P67 EVO arrived today.... Dead? CPU LED Stays ON!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I just can't believe this crap.

My previous P8P67 Evo had died back in the beggining of February, only after 3 weeks owning my new sig rig.

My mobo died during the Cougar Point recall, so I was all this time without my sig rig waiting for new B3 revised mobos to be in stock, and only been using my netbook for the last 2 months; which I am also using to post this.

Why? Because my brand new B3 revision ASUS P8P67 EVO won't POST.

The CPU LED stays on all the time. Could my CPU be dead all along (my local store had no motherboards to test it on, since there were no mobos for sale anywhere during the recall).

Things I've tried so far:

Reseating the CPU. Didn't work.

Check all mobo connectors, including 8-pin. Didn't work.


IMPORTANT NOTE: With my brand new mobo, I also got a brand new PSU: Corsair TX650w. So... I don't think it's the PSU, really.

Asus had issues with the CPU LED staying on. Verify you don't have a bent pin. If you do not then either RMA the board or switch brands.

Also verify you have your RAM in correct slots and the 8pin power connected also.

If RAM was the problem, I believe the RAM LED would be on, as was the case when I first got my first EVO back in January.

But yes, the RAM is in the correct slots

As for switching brands, no. I like ASUS, been using them for years, plus, they're the only ones who implemented UEFI so far, and I want that.


Is it even worth it to Clear the CMOS? On a new mobo?

Never hurts to try clearing the cmos & pulling the battery, they rushed these new revision boards out & I think most bios' still have bugs to work out.
I doubt it's the cpu, they are usually pretty hard to kill without actually trying, although always possible you could be one of the unlucky few.

Once you short the CMOS jumper (after the battery is pulled) it's contents should be gone.

You shouldn't even need to pull the battery. All you have to do is unplug the mains, then leave the jumper over the cmos clear pins for 30 seconds.

This has always worked on every system.
As far as I know, unplugging the battery will only additionally wipe the profiles, and the date/time.

Going to be hard to test your issue without getting another board or RMA'ing the CPU. There have been cases where CPU's have just died randomly, but it's very rare. The days of 980X's dying by enabling 1 core/1 thread in the BIOS while overclocked are hopefully over (yes, that actually DID happen to several people!). Good luck getting your problem fixed.
