Hi posting again after a week b4 i posted saying my ram died i thought it did but i think its my cpu?

Specs : I7 920
Asus P6T Delxue v2
6 Ram Cosair XMS
560 ti
700W OCZ PSU

See the problem at first was my PC couldnt on got problems on and off freezes brought to check turn out to be bad PSU and dying GTX 260 during Nov 2011
RMA both PSU and 260 bought brand new 560 ti
worked fined for 3 weeks problem again.... computer freezes hangs, finally turned it on CPUZ,BIOS,OS reads only 4gb ram dual channel then again another 1 more week 2gb single channel go brought back to check again RMA motherboard, loan a P6T SE also another thing i get the same problem as my P6T Delxue V2 when i was using this board after uses for 4 weeks fine it started to have same problem dual channel then single channel ....it cant be so concidental that 2 mobos died?

so been busy no have chance get help for transport in convinent for me bcos i got health problems and cannot carry the PC finally get respond got back my motherboard like only 2 weeks ago brought it back plucked everything worked then read only 2GB in CPUZ and BIOS updated BIOS still same problem tested it with mettest intel diagnostics etc all good results...Brought it back to service centre tested my RAM CPU AND MOBO(P6T Delxue V2) worked fine triple channel all 6 GB ram they told me could be VGA or PSU but i dobut so...brought back plucked back everything worked fine with 6 gb ram 2 days later same problem freezes again etc problem reseated everything again still same tested 1 ram by 1 ram stick found out or so i thought 2 ram sticks died i posted here saying i need new ram but as i got replies here i tested my ram again off and on repeatily and tested and finally got it booted with 6 GB ram read fine in BIOS and CPUZ and task manager was so happy thought was end of my problems used for another 3 days fine today morning turn on booted fine till windows and then check my cpuz and task manager because i am now very paranoid after getting problems after problems checked all running fine freezes after 2 mins...when i on youtube now cannot boot at all re-tested everything tested PSU with paperclip all fine also cannot even boot now tested barebone boot up got sound beeps that there are no ram and b4 that tested mobo fine with no cpu i mean the beeps and stuffs with cpu and mobo psu i get beeps indicatating no ram place the ram 1 by 1 tested no beep when booted now doesnt beep even with 1 ram stick or 3 doesnt matter anymore so i bascially RMA/changed every part of my PC accpet ram and cpu but i highly think is the RAM so its my CPU dead??


Also i noticed a lot ppl will jump to conclusion that is motherboard usually its the case but the thing is this....i Just RMA motherboard 2 weeks ago its new motherboard also i get same freeze problems with a loan motherboard b4 and it still happening after i RMA my motherboard means the system is tested on 3 new Motherboards so dont go jumping. If U think its harddrives no i hear hardrives moving and i have 4 of them i tested with 1 by 1 etc or none at all still wont boot so thats the least i wont suspect also tested with 2 old harddrives i have so 6 in total dont work so dont bother... PSU could be the case but my previous PSU worked well for over 18 months with same build i have now 260gtx not 560gtx though and now i just RMA my PSU like 3 months ago LOL!!?..

And i Tried pluggining back my old 260 gtx that i RMA since Nov just like my PSU and not use my 560 ti also dont work so not VGA too...this is why i think its the CPU but problem is i cannot get another CPU 1366 set as its out of the market aready now and no longer in warrenty so i am not sure what to do???

Your OCZ PSU probably hurt some of your components. OCZ is not a quality brand when it comes to PSUs....

Any chance you could have a heating problem? Are you OCing?
If so, try running it without OC.

A friend had similar problems, after going through 3 mobos found out it was his LIAN LI box that was shorting. I guess there's a first for everything!

the thing is i RMAed PSU motherboard VGA accpet cpu and ram considering ram hardly dies so easily my friend also told me could be cpu problem to detect ram so i tested ram like i said and re-on off repeating and finally got it worked again 6 ram detected triple channel on OS BIOS CPUZ only today i on my CPUZ reads tripel channel 6 gb then it freezes and now i cant on anymore with ram it gives no beep no signal without ram it gives back singal though that there is no ram its really a dilemma for me now because most likely its not the ram since it worked after replacing it but most of time ppl say its motherboard but like i said i brought back to check b4 the motherboard worked fine triple channel and like i said it was fine when i turned on this morining only after like 2 mins or something it froze i just RMA PSU like since Nov 2011 so u say my PSU died agian after 3 months or my motherboard died again after i just RMA like 2 weeks ago? so it died in 2 weeks again? i dunno confused.

I recommend all users to at least plug their gear into a surge suppressor.
Plugging your psu directly into a wall socket is very undesireable.
Especially if you live in Tornado Alley!
Which is a good portion of the US.

Good practice!
You could try a simple test for your psu.
It's not conclusive though but usefull.

"all re-tested everything tested PSU with paperclip all fine also cannot even boot now tested barebone boot up got sound beeps....."
did that aready lol.... thats why i am in a dilemma bcos i tested everything all give back posititve results and NOTE:

PSU just RMA 3 moths ago Motherboard just RMA 2 weeks ago also note: i loaned another motherboard before i got back my RMA board also give similar problems freezes suddenly reads only 4 gb dual channel 2gb single channel but when i brought back to the service center they say their loan board and my new RMA board is fine when they tested it.

Have you tried upgrading your BIOS or resetting CMOS?
Asus says i7 920 is supported since 1st and 2nd versions, but its worth a try.
Another suggestion is to disconnect everything, just leave the CPU, RAM, GPU and one disk and see how it goes.

asking this means u never read my post, well i know its long so u might not have read it but quote"

got back my motherboard like only 2 weeks ago brought it back plucked everything worked then read only 2GB in CPUZ and BIOS updated BIOS still same problem tested it with mettest intel diagnostics etc all good results...Brought it back to service centre tested my RAM CPU AND MOBO(P6T Delxue V2) worked fine triple channel all 6 GB ram they told me could be VGA or PSU but i dobut so..

2 days later same problem freezes again etc problem reseated everything again still same tested 1 ram by 1 ram stick found out or so i thought 2 ram sticks died i posted here saying i need new ram but as i got replies here i tested my ram again off and on repeatily and tested and finally got it booted with 6 GB ram read fine in BIOS and CPUZ and task manager was so happy thought was end of my problems used for another 3 days fine today morning turn on booted fine till windows and then check my cpuz and task manager because i am now very paranoid after getting problems after problems checked all running fine freezes after 2 mins..."

reseasted everything.
updated BIOS
replucked everything
re- tested ram

cannot be turned on at all at this point.

by error codes i think u mean the beep sounds? i hope so if u meant any error codes like bsod or errors nope cant even on and nope never get any of those.

if u meant beep sounds i tested all it its like what my manual saids its fine and without ram i do get 1 long beep 2 short beeps which is correct and after placing ram i get no beeps at all when startup but all else works.

Yeah that's what i meant beep codes.

yea the problem is theres no problem which is even harder to find the true problem haha..
and since all my parts are RMA before meaning pretty much new i totally have no clue i called back the service center they said theres no way tell the problem they say i could bring it back and it might mircalely just work again and then bring back and might not work again sometimes due to the cpu problem of unwanting to start up bcos of its new feature in 1366 socket the cpu reading the ram and triple channel issues so... i am pretty lost at this point

I just tested my ram like re-seating it in 1 by 1 now it wont boot or beep at all but does have 1 long beep and 2 short beeps with no ram at all i read in other websites as well as other threads similar to mine finding out that as long i get a beep with cpu psu and mobo means these 3 works fine and also works same with VGA and without only no beep after placing ram if i am that unlucky i would also suggest that i noticed that no errors such as BSOD or any crash reports or glitches only random freezing at times might highly be due to ram but ram usually is the last thing u would suspect however in my case if cpu would be dead it wont give any beeps at all but it did give beeps only no beep after placing the ram so if i am that unlucky however to say all 3 of my ram sticks are dead is also rare in this case so still in dobut...at this point of time.. CPU or RAM HELP!?!?!?

wow i feel so bad for you. sorry.

ok. you got cpu, motherboard and psu to beep and means good, right?

put in RAM and nothing, right?

did you try 1 ram in each slot? then try another 1 stick in each slot?

even if the ram is bad i think you should still get a beep.

i can only think it is the RAM slots. and that means more service center torture.

i sure you did all this:
http://support.asus.com/Troubleshooting/detail.aspx?SLa...

but no beeps mean a problem with the motherboard. and if it happens putting in the ram, that makes me think the slots on the board.

ok here is where i get confused see like i said most ppl would say its the motherboard problem i not saying its wrong deduction but the thing is i just RMA this board and got back 2 weeks ago and it having freezeing problems and problems detecting ram repeatively also this happens BEFORE i RMA to the P6T Delxue V2 before it freezes hangs then dies from triple channel to dual to single channel then i LOANED a P6T SE and worked fine for like 4 weeks and again same thing..freezes crashes cannot boot up dies to single channel got back this new RMA board again same thing but before it hanged it was reading triple channel fine and then freezes cannot boot up anymore so could it be the CPU? really??? i am so unlucky that 3 motherboards have same ram channel problems? or my CPU causing the motherboards ram slots to die??

that is a very good point. but i am not knowledgeable enough about the cpu memory controller to know.

it would be known if you had another cpu to swap . .

Solution : Unplug power cable from pc, plug new pc in ! :) 

Ok, jokes aside.
1.
You said you tested other motherboards, did you try with a brand other than Asus? Might be a weird / random issue with your cpu & mobo configuration.

2.
But all the steps you are mentioned points to the CPU and maybe the RAM, I have seen RAM causing some weird things before. Any chance of using different RAM?

3.
If different RAM doesn't solve this then a new LGA1155 & Mobo might be your next move. Splashing out on a 2nd hand LGA1366 cpu is stupid and dangerous.

4.
One other thing you can try is to build your rig outside of your case on your desk. Might be that your mobo is shorting out against your case that you are not aware of.

@zander1983 Alrite cannot really tell much but good questions so far best post by you haha...but if it were like u said issue 1 and 3 then it would come down to is my cpu the cuplrit that casues all my motherboard time after time for the ram slots to die or caused the mobo having problems if that were the case then my cpu is faulty even though it can turn on at times and then start giving problems pretty much same issue cannot detect all ram cannot detect all at all freezes detect dual channel sometimes single channel but end up detects back triple channel when replugged or tried a new PSU at the service centre so CPU causing these??

as for issue 2 if its really ram its werid so my ram was dying? and then casues the motherboards ram slots to die?? or just ram died this time unless i got other ram which i dont and another cpu which i dont i cannot rule out either but most probably CPU that is why i said if someone is an expert on CPU pls tell me if it is possible the CPU killed my ram slots time and time again causing my ram to freeze again and again ram reading issues and ram channels issues or the ram casuing these??

RAM OR CPU??

Sounding more and more like the integrated memory controller on the cpu is bad.
Rare but it's possible.
For example my i7 860 build was a PITA for about 2 weeks when i first built it.
Lots of ram issues and bsods.
After every possible test i could think of and short of rma'ing the mobo i exchanged the cpu.
Problem solved = faulty memory controller on cpu!

I still think his PSU blew up and took a bunch of stuff with it. Otherwise, why RMA all of those components like the OP did? Also, if you RMA something and it tests "good", companies have been known to send you the exact same thing back to you.

But, if you can try a different CPU and it works, you will know what the immediate issue is.

Could very well be another bad motherboard. One of my buddies went through 3 defective ASUS boards(Rampage series) in a row last year, and I had my ASUS M3A32-MVP(high end ASUS AMD board) motherboard die on me in just over a year as well. We both switched to MSI boards after all the chaos. I've been fine for a year and a half now with my current board, and he's been fine for over a year as well. I used to only buy, and recommend ASUS. No more... EVGA/MSI/Gigabyte/Intel is what I mainly recommend now to my friends. Too many high end boards from ASUS failing lately for my liking.(just from my experiances)

Now at the same time my newer MSI motherboard has a small quirk as well. lol. For some reason my MSI 790fx GD-70 only likes it when I install my 4 sticks of ram in a certain way. I had to mark them so I knew what one belonged where. At least it works though....

Is it possible that your motherboard was not setting the right timings for your ram? Alot of the time, ram timings and voltage have to be set manually. Most motherboards have a default setting for ram timings and voltage. Like for example, my ram is g-skill ripjaws DDR3 1333 7-7-7-21 at 1.5v but the motherboard defaults it to 9-9-9-24 at 1.65v Maybe worth checking out. You should do some research on that particular motherboard with that ram as well, maybe it's not officially supported....

EDIT: I just looked at the support list for memory on that board...Not one Corsair type of ram is supported, sorry to tell you. You can get the PDF file with the supported ram list here:
http://support.asus.com/QVL.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&s=29&... Deluxe V2&os=&hashedid=iRlP8RG9han6saZx

Make sure that you copy the whole link above, for some reason part of it is getting cut off. lol. If you just click the blue you will only get the support page for the P6T, not the one you have.

Hope some of this helps you out....

nah its not my PSU my PSU its the best that never died on me many times lol...i only RMA once last Nov but it lasted 2 & Half Years(EDIT) Before That in Fact My Motherboard died the most......RMA 3 times the most ..motherboard 1st 1 i void warrenty couldnt RMA lasted 9 months 2nd one lasted 20 months and RMA last Nov..and i think one more time in between the 20 months was tgt with my GTX260 ..

i am using this (EDIT TR3X6 NOT TR3X3) TR3X6G1600C9 XMS3 http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-TR3X6G1600C9-PC3-12800-16... its in the link arlite lol...dont think thats the reason first board i got lasted me well 9 months i sorta spoilt the warrenty couldnt RMA bought the same motherboard back and lasted since march 2010 till only last Nov weridly this one lasted longer yet fail to RMA also if i am right not the ram slots are not working anymore got froze and it was working fine a day ago and now cannot even on but my motherboard does make beeps with no ram in other words the cpu and mobo and psu works just the ram slot dead again this i am very sure its true but what i am not sure its whether the ram causing all 3 mobos to die so fast or my cpu or if so like u said pure bad luck then i am the most unlucky person in the world for PC as far as i can tell..also no point for me getting another 1366 socket mobo at this point most are out of stock in SG now leaving the high end ones costing 300+ i might as well buy a whole new socket.

GF, i feel your pain bro.

davcon took you step by step through trial and error to find what is wrong. i popped and with a new thought after reading everything you two did.

but now all that will happen is new folks are going to pop in and go around in circles with what you already did. not because they are stupid but they want to help too.

i think this is at the point where you either test another cpu on your board

or you test your cpu on another board.

Yes but i do believe my motherboard is working fine but its ram slots might be dead either that or all 3 ram sticks died which i highly dobut, ram are usually very durable..and if my motherboard died again it have to throw it back to grindhouse again...but like @sincreator said its highly possible the motherboard die more often then would to ram or cpu...but still i am getting very suspicous of my cpu...but since i cannot RMA my cpu anymore i have only 1 choice left go test my ram and cpu and motherboard and leave in the service centre to test for like 2 weeks or so while they RMA my motherboard again and if it turns out that the cpu causes the ram slots to freeze again and again then i cant RMA i might as well just get a new 1155 or 2011 chipset LOL... at this point i thank you guys for your help...but unless someone is really an cpu expert just the cpu could tell me if its highly possible at least that the cpu casuing the ram slots and ram to freeze which is why all 3 motherboards have same freezing issue..

The thing is when i got back my RMA GTX260 and PSU it was working fine all 3weeks+ i got myself 560 Ti it worked all fine then later the problem then started the motherboard ram slots dying....funny thing is.....when i got my motherboard to check in the service centre they told me my cpu chip have been mandled before by other ppl and 1 or 2 pins could very well be toasted or bent i am not sure but thats what they told me and that its just small issue dobut it casuses problems but before this my cpu was perfectly fine so i will never know but what made me suspect it more is after suddenly all 3 motherboards die at such a short period of time LOL my motherboard ....the loan one...and RMA back my motherboard die again in just this 10 weeks period 3 died to the same problem , random freezing and ended up triple to single channel cant read the ram properly and this RMAed board is worst 1 time and cant even on at all now LOL..

I still say to check your timings and voltage on your ram in the bios. It is possible that intermitant problems can pop up at different times totally randomly if the timings and voltage is off. The ram isn't officially supported by your motherboard either, so this is a very real possibility for the cause of your problems. Maybe the ram itself is damaging the motherboard since it's not supported. I would really try the ram in a different computer before I do anything drastic though...If it works fine then you most likely have found the source of your problem atleast....

It is extremely rare, but not impossible to have a defective CPU. I seriously doubt that the CPU is the problem.

I would really try the ram in a different computer before I do anything drastic though...If it works fine then you most likely have found the source of your problem atleast....

It is extremely rare, but not impossible to have a defective CPU. I seriously doubt that the CPU is the problem.


umm like i said now my PC cant even turn on anymore so probably ram slots all died or something and as for the ram it is supported like i said
TR3X6G1600C9 is supported http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-TR3X6G1600C9-PC3-12800-16... hmmm probably i posted the wrong one sorry both looks the same my bad, posted the TR3X3 instead of TR3X6 and when i first built this com i didint have problems at all for 9 months before my motherboard died i void that motherboard got back same model and ever since i bought this PC all the RMA issues are NOT with the RAM SLOTS OR THE RAM ACCPET for the past 2 months...
