Hello All,
I am an old newby. I am a retired airline pilot and have taken up building computers. I thought I was doing it right, but obviously I missed something and fried my processor. I am not yet 100% sure that it is fried but I could not get into the bios until I replaced it. I will now try it in another build and see if it really is toast. Fortunately I had another replacement on hand. The temp never got over 75 degrees celcius, but I am thinking that that temp is too high. It must be. If anyone has any suggestions, I am all ears. It is really great to find this site and all the resources that are here.. Cheers, cappycappy53

75 for the 2600K is safe. What core voltage did you have it up to?

That's safe too. Maybe the overclock was way too unstable to even get into the BIOS.

Try clearing CMOS and pulling the CMOS battery (to be sure the settings are cleared)?

This may seem irrelevant, but what do you have for a power supply? What's the make and model?

That hardly never works right tho reset bios and check the cpu again, volts and temps were both in limits so either cpu is still good or you just ended up with a lemon that probly would of died under stock conditions.

Enermax Galaxy 1000W and I reset everything except I did not remove the battery. The new cpu booted just fine. I have been using this old cpu for over 6 months with the auto O/C at 4.6 with no problems at all. Its a mystery to me.

I recommend that you keep trying with the old CPU.

I thought that maybe the PSU was a low-quality unit, but I believe the Galaxy series is a quality line of PSUs, so that's not the culprit.

Yeah, like I said the temps and volts are still very safe.

your board have post code LED near the RAM slots in the top right corner. does it hang on a certin code when you try and boot and if so what is the code and its meaning? although my board is different company, i had an issue where it would hang at which was 62 - Installation of the PCH Runtime Services... turned out after testing in another system the cpu (2600k) was dead.

edit wrong code i had.

so its stuck in the Driver eXecution Environment (DXE) Phase. this could be that one of the CPU's modules is dead or a mobo problem. i guess as mentioned by yourself and others, try in another mobo and go from thier. you could even try to reset CMOS as well.

more info here on the phases.

still my best guess is probably th CPU has died on you since the code is CPU module specific. interested to see how you go and goodluck

[edit]
you can also try testing your RAM indidually in different slots
