I was wondering if you guys could help me:
My system has been hanging with loud buzzing noises through the speakers (no bluescreen) for a little while, and now, refuses to boot entirely. When booting, it alternates between 04 (PCH initialization before microcode loading) and 4F (DXE IPL is started) code errors. I got a 62 (installation of the PCH runtime services) error once. Google search indicates it could be a corrupt BIOS, or faulty mobo/RAM/CPU hardware - a pretty big spread of possible issues.
I have tried reseating the RAM, reseating the processor, and clearing the CMOS - each one seemed to work around the problem for one boot attempt or two, but the problem always returns.
System is as follows:
- i7-8086k, delidded. Used to be pretty aggressively overclocked (~4.7Ghz on all cores), but currently at stock. Temps were never a problem during overclocking.
- ASUS Maximus X Formula
- ASUS Strix GTX 1080Ti x2 in SLI
- Samsung 980 PRO x2 in RAID 0 using an intel driver.
- Corsair Dominator 8 GB 2666 MHz x4 - running at 2133 MHz; never bothered to enable XMP.
- Corsair AX1600i
- CPU, VRMs, and GPUs are in a custom EKWB loop.
I don't have a bunch of secondary parts (PSUs, DIMMs, etc...) laying around to try substituting things. I could take everything apart and try test benching it, but the system weighs about 150-200 lbs, and I want to see if anybody has any ideas which don't involve doing that.
Thanks in advance everybody.
