Re: Failed overclocking, now wont go to BIOS or boot.
Ok, so to make sure it was indeed the motherboard messing things up, I moved my CPU, vid card and mem to my old motherboard and hooked it all up. it ran fine... kinda. Now, for some reason unkown to me. The processors temp keeps rising. From the readings on AI Booster, the first time i booted it up, it went to 60~ degrees C, then it crashed. Second time after i let it cool down for a couple mins with my fan blowing on it, it went to 80 Degrees C, I then immedietly shut it down, and now have my fan blowing on it trying to keep cool it. I've phoned up the place where i bought the motherboard from, and i'm going to bring it back and get it replaced if I can. Any idea on why the processor would be getting soo hot now? I was thinking it may be due to moving the fan from one motherboard to the other and taking it off and such with not replacing the thermal compound each time. But i'm just not too sure. =\
