I got this mobo a few months ago alongside a 2700X, a 1080ti and 2x8GB GSkill TridentZ RGB 3200mhz RAM (which I picked from the approved RAM list) and had very few issues. Recently they've really took off. I've had the PC showing a black screen, gpu lights going off but mobo ones stay on. I have to turn off my PC at the wall as the power buttons dont do anything until the mobo has completely lost power. I updated BIOS and chipset etc and I thought I'd fixed it
Under heavy loads (such as cinebench or OCCT) my pc has started freezing for a second or so. This doesn't seem to be effecting my cinebench score (1740 at stock even with freezes) so I'm confused whats causing it. If I run OCCT CPU or Power Supply tests the freezes happen but not if I run the GPU test. However during the power supply test my gpu clock drops during the freezes
I know this motherboard doesn't like it when you monitor temps from 2 places so I unchecked everything put the GPU stuff from MSI Afterburner but I fear thats still causing a conflict as I still get AI Suite going funny on me reporting cpu temp as -1 etc when that isn't the case, and even without afterburner running I get the freezes during benchmarking
I'm really at the end of my tether trying to work out what is wrong with this computer, do you guys thing my mobo is faulty or is this just a bit of a bad product? Could my PSU be to blame? Or not enough power? (650W) Any help would be greatly appriciated. I sadly don't have another computer to test this stuff with currently
I also have one more easier to answer question, the entire time I've had this PC when it boots up for the first time from having no power (even the very first time I turned it on) it turns on, turns off, then turns back on and posts normally with no problems, is that normal?
