Re: hw monitor dosent show proper values
well first off hw monitor dosent report my voltages correctly at all and i get no fan speed readings at all. temps are spot on no problem there.
im not new to computer building ive been doing it sense i was 15 back in 2000 ( this is the first time ive had any of theses problems i mostly just upgraded pre built s for me and my friends this is my second. complete build from scratch. first was in 2008) , and i know its hard for cpus to get damaged now days, so ill just recount my problems from march till now sorry its a long one.
when i built this computer started out with small problems here and there random bsod audio glitches on start up strange whining noise thru speakers randomly when computer was off and when i tried to use onboard graphics there were artifacts all over the place.
but one night i was playing shin megami tensei with my cpu ocd to 3.8 ghz and my computer just shut down with rapid beeps constantly which is hard ware failure (still havent found what failed) and wouldn't boot back up (temp was fine i monitor temps on my second screen was at 45c cpu and gpu was at 48 with 50% fan)
till i started taking parts out of the tower and putting em back in starting at bare minimum till everything was back in the tower (trying to find out what cause the failure) . and after that night i couldn't get it to run stable at all and i had issues with the ram after that night no matter what i did so i tested all my parts for errors and they checked out so i replace my power supply with a 950 corsair upgraded from a ultra x4 600 suggestion from a few people on the board.
didn't help so then i replaced my mother board and most of the problems went away, besides my ram not working at stated timings. so i rmaed that and bought a back up 2 gb stick to use for the time being and i haven't had problem with the ram any more, but i get small freezing when im trying to load programs and when im doing random small things it will just frezze for a few secs then come back.
so i tried a fresh install on my second hard drive cause i thought it may have been some bad sectors on my main drive.(was a suggestion form some one on here) but nope problems still here didn't go away, so the only thing that hasn't been replaced so far is my cpu and xfx 5770 and i have no problems with the video card. ( i can play games for hours although i get micro freezing here and there)
also im not running at 4 ghz at the moment its on stock settings. everything's at stock setting till i figure out these problems. my sig is the last stable oc i had i only push it up that high when i benchmark, no point in running it that high day to day. this is my home pc and gaming pc
and with my crosshair IV board i get very stable 4ghz ran prime 95 for 6 hours with no problems with new stick of ram but it locks up my cpu if i try to run 4 threads so i have to run 3 instead other wise computer becomes unresponsive even at stock settings. temps at 4 ghz are 40c idle and 55c load at 100 % with a room temp of 72 f
im gonna try to rma the cpu, i already called amd all they need is the serial number off the cpu and should be good to go. my friend wants it when i upgrade my cpu.
sorry for the long post but this problem ive been haveing for a while is stressing me out.
sorry bout my bad grammar never was really good at it.
