Had a couple of lock ups today sitting on the desktop. Everything would keep running but my mouse couldn't click anywhere other than what was up on the screen (like my Asus soundcard utility I had open.)

After a couple of minutes I rebooted using the reset button, came up fine, then started checking all of my temps. Everything seemed normal and none of my voltage readings were out of wack in the bios.

figured it was a software issue, started checking and saw that none of my drivers have been updated recently and I've installed nothing new in weeks.

At that point I decided to just think of it as a random lockup and went about my day. A few hours later the same thing happened. This time I let it sit until it blue screened. Didn't have time to get a picture of it or see the code.

after a reboot my board started reading 00 and would sit on a black screen with a cursor blinking after bios was loaded and the windows startup would normally occur. I got no error messages or options.

I reset cmos, reset to all of the default values, ect. Rebooted and its still displaying 00 and acting the same.

typing this from my phone, not sure what's going on. Have made no changed to the system in almost a year. Cpu/gpu are both watercooled and I swapped out my water about 4 months ago and everything has been fine with temps and performance.

probably need to rma it just wanted to see of anyone had any advice on things to try. Or if it could be the CPU that went.

What's your core voltage for 4.8 GHz?

Are you using Offset or Manual?

What's your Load-Line Calibration setting?

I know this is an old thread, but you never reported if this was solved or not.

Have you tried unplugging the power and removing the CMOS battery for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Then reconnect power (NOT the CMOS battery) and try turning it on again? My new motherboard seems to have this problem.

Hope this helps you!

p.s. If you did end up replacing components. Which component did you replace that fixed the problem?

My crucial ssd needed a firmware update and was causing the lockups. I had to go into my bios and manually select the ssd as a boot over ride to get into windows. Did the firmware update and was good to go. Not so much as a hiccup since. Figured it out within minutes of posting this and actually forgot all about it until it popped up in my subscriptions today.
