Discussions about AMD Processors and overclocking. Need help with that new AMD CPU or not sure which one to buy? Like to void your warranty? This is the place for you! Please keep the topic on Processors only!
I tried stepping the fsb all the way down to 190 and it still crashes in game. So from the tests I've done so far, I think I'm going to rma the mobo, since my processor and memory work fine in another exact same a7n8x. I'll let you guys know if that turns out to be the culprit. Thanks for all your help btw. and now I'm hooked on these forums!
I received my new mobo. It's an a7n8x-e deluxe instead of a straight a7n8x deluxe. I'm having problems with it. I hooked everything up and it would power up and get to the bios splash screen and then power off. I tried disconnecting everything except the video card and the floppy and it still does the same thing. When it does power off the power led stay on on the mobo and the case but everthing else loses power. It's like it is shutdown but the power led on the case is still getting power from the mobo. A couple times I have been able to boot to windows but it gets a blue screen, then it powers off in the same fashion. I thought maybe it was because I hadn't updated with the latest bios so I tried doing that. In the middle of updating the bios(actually after it found the bin file but before it started clearing the cmos and flashing the new bios) it powered off again. I'm using the same 550w power supply I was previously. Any ideas or something I could try?

All I can say is I am amazed by how smart our forum members are. Illuminati called your problem correctly just hours after your original post back on Aug 23...
Great Job Illuminati! (not sure why nexes didn't check that back on Aug 23rd though)the last thing I can think of is that the heatsink is not quite sitting on the cpu correctly...
