  • It was probably some overclocking and the "custom watercooling" of yours that killed that CPU and the first board. You don't have to make two threads to let the world know.

    If no-one replied in your first thread ( it means that it's not a known fault of the board.

  • If the 3930k is a C1 stepping, I had one that just up and refused to initialize when it was moved from an X79A-GD65(8D) to a Big Bang XPower II. Intel replaced the CPU under warranty as it was determined to be faulty.

    thanks heaps froggy my problem is the cpu is c2 the replacement one is a c2 as well.I have a replacement board in at moment it,s the 3rd board.i would like to move to windows 8.1 when released but am concerned about  this board as well.I,m not sure if this board, like the others can be trusted after all $595.00 on cpu is to much to keep having a unreliable board kill the cpu  :) thanks again for responding  :biggthumbsup:

    ps bios on this board is 10.7

    You have a damaged component (PSU/graphics card/sound card/ ...) and you will continue to "kill" mainboards and processors.
    And that reseller is not smart at all: your warranty should be lost after the 2nd bricked board.
    I bet you are an  :oc:

    Mainboard: HC85
    Processor: Zilog Z80 3.5MHz

    Video Card: integrated (16 colors)
    PSU: 5V/3A
