Thread: GA-EP45-UD3P - Won't boot with 450FSB

    edge, first off, what do you mean by "rock-solid stable"?

    second, that wire that is the "third leg", is the bottom of that wire just cut, or did you wrap it with some rubber tape?

    to all, man D-an-W, did you every imaging that this thread would live so long? teehee.

    I figured I should have mentioned that, the end of the wire is indeed wrapped with black electrical tape, which can't be seen in the picture, just a small piece.

    Rock-solid stable, to me, means:

    1. 24+ hours Prime blend
    2. 24+ hours Orthos Large FFT stable
    3. 5 consecutive passes of SuperPi 32M
    4. UnRaR ~4-6GB file made up of 4MB or less files with no errors (I zip some my Mp3s mixed with documents and images mostly)
    5. Able to handle 6-8 hour continuous gaming (weekends), WoW, Crysis, Unreal, any game really

    That process has always given me good results. I don't do much audio/video rendering but a healthy dose of image editing (Photoshop automation).

    As an FYI, my computer is located in my basement where it is rarely above 72F, usually 66F. Even now, in the summer, I wear a sweatshirt or else I get cold. The white walls in my pictures are basement insulation.

    Alrighty then, I would say that is Stable too... :)

    What about your PSU? How old is it, what size? How well protected is it? I don't think that less than a year of a 34% over clock will migrate your chip to oblivion, so I wonder about other issues...

    Also, have you started your own thread about this? If not, you should do so and post a copy of this form filled out.

    My PSU is about 2 weeks old now, lol. It's the same as Psycho's - the new (just released last month-ish) Corsair CMPSU-750HX (Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750HX 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies)

    As far as "protection" goes, look at my pics, just sitting there in the open air, I doubt I'm really stressing it at all. I got it for future Crossfire really.

    Look back on pages 37+, I've been posting on this thread for a few weeks now, have one of those forms filled out on page 38 but I think it's not quite as up-to-date as my current OC.

    No, I haven't started a new thread, the only info I've read on the "cold-boot" problems were in this thread. It's not a big enough problem to drive my crazy just yet and Psycho's advice worked for me as a work-around.

    By protection I was referring to safe guarding against voltage spikes. But I am sure you have some sort of Surge Supression, with all that money you have sitting on that bench.

    Nevermind, I just read Post #367 (your post on page 37) and I have nothing that I can tell you. You, sir, definitely are more qualified than I. And 1.56 MCH Core!!!! You sir have enormous moxy. I am definitely going to have to try to push that for my 4.8 set that I can't get to load into windows. It POSTS but won't boot Windows, but I have been afraid to go past 1.42 MCH Core..... must now do some soul searching.

    As for your boot - reboot issue, I am not sure I can offer any more knowledge than you already possess.

    *bows deeply.

    Updated to the 10b BIOS after 24hrs of Prime Small, going to leave Large running overnight and maybe think about Blend then (Template coming soon, I promise!)...

    Ah, surge protection. I have a 450W APC battery backup which is attached to a 2400 Joules surge protector (overkill I know) but I have no other use for them, had them forever. I do not however, have my internet going through these as they are not gigabit ready. I have seen a NIC card get blown up via a lightning storm but the rest of the computer was unharmed.

    As for the MCH Core, yeah I was really pushing it and have since backed it off to a much more acceptable 1.34V. I had to raise the MCH ref volts to offset this as one of Psycho's posts suggested. He has a good amount more experience with this board than I do.

    Psycho mentioned that the boot/reboot issue varies depending on what PSU he hooks up to it. I've noticed this to as I tried my old Ultra 550W PS and even though it does do a cycle, it's only a dual-boot and it's up. My current 750HX does an endless cycle until I power off at the wall (or PS switch) for 20-30 seconds, then start it up again. Not sure why this would happen as the board technically still has power via the onboard battery.

    @D-an-W
    Any feedback on the reboot issue with F10b you can chime in on? Any change or have you even experienced this yet? I think you did, would have to look back through this thread.

    Heh, morning buddy.

    Seriously though, other than throwing. More Vcore at it, can you think what might stabilise Prime Large for me?
