    Well I'll pick up a $20 card tomorrow just in case, so I can test this kind of thing in the future.


    The whole reason I did the BIOS upgrade (From F2 to F4) was because the Temperature sensors were reading 0C. That's kind of what pointed me at the MB as the culprit here in the first place.

    I didn't get any kind of email and there were no papers in the box other than shipping info.

    Unfortunately customer service is closed until Monday so I can't call them up and ask for more info about my RMA until then. I'd like to go in armed with the info that I've checked the other components first.

    Giving them the benefit of the doubt, if they returned it to me as-is, that should mean it's not broken. I'm not looking forward to waiting another 45 days if the GPU needs an RMA =/

    Edit: Store policy where I got the GPU is to only accept returns for 30 days, and they don't take GPUs at all once they've been powered on. It will have to go straight to EVGA.

    This is a socket AM3

    The only other AMD chip I have is the socket 939 (Athlon 64 4400+) from my old desktop.

    Of the 5 computers in my apartment, two are laptops, two are Intel desktops with AGP video, and the other is the machine we're talking about here. Can't do *any* meaningful part swapping with it =/

    So I brought my GPU and CPU into a repair shop nearby and tested them independently on working systems.

    GPU is fine, CPU is not.

    So it's my fault for not being more thorough before deciding the motherboard the problem. I guess I'll go talk to AMD about an RMA now.

    Thanks for your help

    Went and picked up a new CPU today, seems to be working OK.

    I'm running memtest on my RAM though, it wouldn't post with all 8GB installed. I'm going to replace the RAM at some point anyways, so I can live with 4GB until then.

    Edit: Yup, turns out one of my 4 RAM modules is faulty. 11 beeps if I try to boot with it. So 11 beeps seems to indicate bad RAM. Guessing that 9 means faulty CPU. Not sure about 10.
