CPU EZDebug
« on: 25-June-19, 05:05:02 »

Let me start with what I am currently running.

Board: Z270 PC Mate
VGA:   Asus GTX 1080
PSU:  Corsair RM 750x
CPU:  Intel® Core™ i7-7700K Processor
MEM: 2x8GB, 2400MHz ADATA XPS
COOLER: Not sure on the brand but a liquid cooler
OS: Windows 10 64bit Home

Now to the issue. So This started randomly on Saturday when I went to turn on my PC, Everything turned on (fans, lights, ect.) but as I sat there nothing popped up on my monitors. Looked through the view window and sure enough the EZ Debug light for the CPU was on, so I shut it down turned the hard power switch on the PSU off, unplugged it, hit the power button to try and burn any residual power off, plugged it back in and flipped the switch back, now it was switching itself on and off endlessly every 2sec and would attempt to boot for about half a second.

My first instinct was to shut it back off, unplug it and swap the memory around. No joy. Second was to try and boot off 1 stick. No Joy. Third was to remove the GPU and try again with the memory in the original spot. No joy. Swapped memory again with GPU removed. No joy.

Did a little digging and read that it could be a PSU issue (I didn't have the Corsair at the time but a 600W High Power Bronze). So I went to the store and got the Corsair but still no joy. So I did some more digging and found a post about resetting the ME in the BIOS, but I couldn't even get to the BIOS screen. My buddy gave me a tip about removing the GPU and putting in a single stick of memory in the #2 slot which somehow worked to get me to BIOS. Sure enough my ME version was reading 0.0.0.0, so with a quick search I found the correct version for my Motherboard and put it on a USB stick to install. I did it and it worked...……. for a day.

Here I am going to boot up my PC again today and I am back at square one. Same issue as Saturday, same symptoms. Now before I take all the items off my desk and break down my PC again, I am wondering what the cause of the issue is and why it would repeat itself. Is it something I am doing? Is it a fault in the components? Is it a Windows update? Is there something I can do to prevent it from happening again?

Any insight on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Like I said I have done some digging on here and found people with the same issues, but have not come across a post where they had it happen again a few days later. Thank you in advance

if no works OK, can you tell the BIOS version that board is using?

else yes sounds like some component become faulty: PSU/Video card
do you have another video card to try?
or can you test the components now, if the computer is running

Currently the BIOS version is E7A72IMS.110 and the ME Version is 11.6.0.1126. I do not have a spare GPU unfortunately to test it. Is there a way to test mine? I put it all back together and it booted up just fine again. Currently I am running 2 monitors off the GPU, both at 144hz and it is pushing out 140FPS in games fairly steady.

Update on this. I have since pulled all the components from my case and reassembled on a piece of cardboard with a single stick of RAM, CPU and CPU cooler. Still having the same issue.

I did however get it to stay "on" (fans and lights) by unplugging the CPU power from the MoBo. Not sure if that means anything though.

check CPU socket for any bented pins with magni-glass
ensure CPU cooloer do not put too much pressure over CPU/board socket.

If you do not unplugging the CPU power, and turn it on,
you can't get any power or?
