    Default Dr Debug 59, Z68 Extreme Gen 3, worked fine now won't post

    Ok, I have an ASRock Z68 extreme gen 3 board and its been working fine for a long time. Recently I noticed my CPU temps were running too hot when playing games(into the 90s) but have never had any issues regarding shut down, reboots or anything like that. Still I wanted to reapply some thermal paste to the CPU to get the temps down and blow it out with some compressed air. Simple enough right, no big deal right? Wrong.

    Removed heat sink, wiped both heat sink and CPU clean with rag containing 91% isopropyl alcohol, reapplied thermal paste, fixed heat sink clips and made sure it is seated tightly again and properly and have not successfully completed a boot since.

    Keep getting a continual reboot loop of various debug codes, the latest being 5(CPU microcode not found)...previously was getting 59, 65, 0E, etc.. although with the 0E it would stay running but monitor wouldn't come on.

    The monitor briefly goes green on reboot, then turns back off. I have reseated the memory, cleared the CMOS both via the button on the back of the board and via jumper, changed the battery, etc but am not getting anywhere. Reseated the video card multiple times, removed video card and tried to load just with integrated graphics, changed power supplies, took motherboard completely out of the case with only the power supply connected, etc...just reseated CPU, no change...

    Unsure of what else I can do or what the issue might be. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have built many systems and figured things out myself but this is mystifying me...

    Any help would be appreciated, never thought reapplying thermal paste and cleaning out the case would cause this many problems...

    You won't like this, but if you haven't already, pull the CPU and look closely with a magnifying glass if necessary for bent pins.

    Thanks, I did this and didn't see any, I don't see how it would have happened as I never removed it from the socket and was very gentle while cleaning it...

    From what I am reading it seems like a BIOS issue?

    I don't think it's related, possible though.

    Any chance in cleaning/jostling the cpu fan that it's now spinning below a "safe' rpm? ie: long in the tooth and what was done made it worse

    Please, complete # 1 in my sig so that myself and anyone else has an idea what you have there for a system. Stock cpu cooler?

    Ok here are the specs all retail boxed parts bought in October 2011 so all are under warranty(3 years):

    ASRock Z68 Extreme Gen 3 MB
    Intel I7 2600 CPU
    Ripjawz DDR3-1600(2x8GB, 2x4GB) total 12GB
    OCZ ModX 700W PSU(just unboxed yesterday, had since 2011 but never switched PSU)
    Asus 24x DVD-RW
    Sapphire Radeon 6850 1GB DDR5 Video Card
    Stock Intel Cooler(have Tuniq Tower also but not installed)

    Cooler is working fine, no issues with fan at all, blowing strong

    Hmm, according to ASRock site codes 5A-60 are memory related:

    "5A- 60 Problem related to memory. Please re-install the CPU and memory then clear CMOS. If the problem still exists, please install only one memory module or try using other memory modules."

    Any other ideas? Would like to have something to try when I get home from work tonight...

    Are you OC'ing with those two different pair? Or maybe overvolting one pair due to the other pair requiring more voltage?

    You might also try only using one set and see if it boots. Then swap in the other and see. You might also run MemTest86+ on each set individually, assuming it boots on one set. Or if it takes one stick to boot.

    Running Command Rate of 1 or 2 with those 4 sticks? If 1 you might try 2.

    Are Primary and Secondary timings the same with the two sets? Care to share the two kit P/N's of both sets?

    It was slightly overclocked, didn't change anything with the memory settings at all...

    They have same specs, one is just 2 4GB pairs and the other 2 2GB pairs...timings are the same

    I can give the P/N once I get home later tonight

    Think I may have figured it out...need to install same modules in 1 and 3 and 2 and 4, not 1 and 2 and 3 and 4...will try this when I get home...
