Doesn't it seem somewhat coincidental that the powersupply would flip out just at the exact time I pushed a button in amd overdrive? And then fry the cpu? I mean, I'm leaning towards the PSU as well, I'm just not sure what it didn't mess up the mobo too...

This is often the problem when more than one device might be blown. Without being able to test things "hands on" it can be difficult. Dont worry about the board though, you have three years warranty on that and I suspect the same for the CPU. I don't know about the PSU but most are at least three years. Can you not just take all the bits to them and tell them that it is faulty and the symptoms?

Well I ordered them at newegg so my choice is either return for refund (-15% restocking) or return for replacement. But if the psu sucks, I'd rather just get another one.

Just to add another headache what made you choose those memory modules? They are designed for the Intel platform not AMD and neither Gigabyte or OCZ lists them as compatible with your board.

Basically I didn't know enough when I bought them a I wanted 4gig dimms.  But they seemed to work fine, passed memtest,etc. Maybe I'll just rma the memory and PSU and go get better for both.

What memory would you recommend for that board?

You are probably better off asking absic that one, but I would say that the speed is fineand jsut find some that are on the QVL(Qualified Vendor List) from either Gigabyte or the memory manufacturer. Personally I like Corsair but you would need a different set to mine because I run an Intel i7 platform. I am not so keen on OCZ but that is a personal choice which I am sure that others here would disagree with. Crucial are another company that I have used many times in the past and have a good track record for replacements.

Personally I would be surprised iof your PSU is faulty being a Corsair one(if memory serves me rightly it is the HX750) and they are warrantied for 7 years. That shows the manufacturer has faith in their quality! ;)

I thought the same about the corsair psu, there do seem to be quite a lot of people on newegg who had one die though. I would really like for gb to answer what those beeps actually mean. It would help. As it is I think I might just rma everything then go buy local so I can have someone to test it if anything doesnt work.

Well that is probably the most sensible thing to do but you must have learnt quite a lot on this build anyway. You know where to find us if you need any more help or information(before or after your build) ;)

I'm having trouble finding the list of approved vendors on their site, do you know where it is?

Thanks!

well


mmm, no, the psu didn't work with the other computer, as is doing the same, turns on, but won't go into bios


and, actually I have RAM'ed this psu once that it has 5 year warranty besides that Corsair did sent me another Psu with 6 pci-ex onnector having the original just 4


I won't be surrise myself that the psu did blow, as I said I already have one bad, but don't get me wrong, I still think that Corsair is one of the best brands there on the market, may be just some bad design or some


anyway, some other guy, I think was in this tread that had a faulty ram stick having the same symptoms

I'm going to go drive all the way out to fry's tonight and buy some new memory and a new PSU then rma these. If it still doesn't work, then I think I'm going to get a different make of board.

Thanks for all your help. I'll let you know what happens!

Hi Christoph,
You lost me there, have you replaced your board?  Actually the Crosshair IV is a nice board but people even get problems with that.
