Dealing with a weird one.
Gigabyte X99 Ultra Gaming
32 Gigs Corsair Vengeance 3200mhz DDR4
EVGA GTX 1070 FTW2
Corsair RM750 PSU
APC Surge protector
Built it in late 2016… ran fine for almost 2 years, then rebooted and wouldn’t post… RMA’ed mobo, Gigabyte tested fine
Tested PSU and voltages are fine also tested with another known working PSU
RMA’ed CPU and they replaced it, Intel never said if it was dead or not…
Put it back together and one of four sticks of ram is bad,… replaced that… worked for 8 months then bam same thing… bought used motherboard for testing CPU and same issue… GPU is fine as well… Co-worker tested all 4 sticks of ram on his new PC and they are good… I even have Fractal Design replacing the front panel of my case in case it shorted something out…
Trying to find the root cause not just throw money I don’t have at it to replace parts. Everything is under warranty except PSU. I just cant RMA again and get it back as good parts then find it happens again in 8 months… Everyone tells me CPUs rarely die yet I might have 2 on my hands with a still working board…
Round 2 of Gigabyte testing my mobo. It’s still good. I talked to the CS manager and he broke it down how detailed they get in testing and what tests they run, they seem pretty intense.
Trying to figure out what is killing my CPU w/o killing anything else
