I'm shopping around for a motherboard and a CPU right now but does anyone know the highest compatible AMD processor that my motherboard takes? It's a Biostar TForce4 SLI. I checked the Biostar website and while it shows it for the other motherboards, it doesn't for this one.
Also I should point out that the computer was still on when I came back from class around an hour ago.
I had very frequent turn offs just at random and i got so bad off as to where i couldnt even see CMOS. so what i did was deduce if it was the mobo or not. i tested to see if it was my PSU by jumping it and that wasnt the case so i pluged everything back in and took my CPU out and took off the CPU power pin and my fans got spun up and stayed on even my GPU fan so i knew it wouldnt be the mobo because my GFX card was getting power and sending a signal even without a PSU connection
i deduced this because if your 24 pin isnt in a complete circuit then none of your molex connections will work. so i noticed that seing as how the electricity can complete a circuit nd come back to the 24 pin on its negative side there for a complete circuit it wouldnt be a faulty board.
so i went up to my local tigerdirect
bought me a new CPU and poped that bad boy in and presto DawnOfDoom was up and running again.
