I have no option to turn XMP off in UFEI(bios).
I checked the ram settings didnt really understand much.
On the packaging it says 9-9-9-24 but it doesn't indicate that in bios, I'm
Not sure what the numbers represent or even if it is significant. Im at work at the minute so can't really do anything untill I get home.

Ok, I tried rebuilding the computer and no success.
I have no POST beeps but it doesn't have a speaker.

I tried updating the bios and it just turned itself off. It's like the power is tripping just randomly, getting more frequent the longer I have the computer on. (If I leave it for 10 minutes it will stay on a little longer) My cpu is at 99c so I dont think that's whats causing it.

I tried removing the graphics card and booting without it to see if that was the problem but still the same thing. the power just seems to trip. When I press the power button there seems to actually be a delay until the computer turns on. For example when the power trips and i goto turn it back on, when I press the button 2-5 seconds later it will start to power up.

your cpu is at 99c? idle?
50 to 70 would be normal operating temps
99c while idle is slowly killing the chip.
Even GPU's shouldn't be hitting temps near that high in normal use.

I would expect around 35-40c while it's not being stressed though.

I don't know why it's so high. It's has a cooler on and all it is doing is booting up.

Do you think that's what is tripping the power? But that wouldn't cause a BSOD would it?

if the temp is that high the system may be shutting itself off.
something is not right, did you use thermal compound?
IS the cpu fan plugged in.
Is it spinning?
Is the specific cpu you are using approved for your motherboard?

I used thermal paste but may have used too much.
It's the stock cooler that comes with the i5, and yes it is plugged in and spinning. (My motherboard is Asrock Extreme4 z77)

Sorted now I think.
Removed the stock cooler and put the one I bought on and now running at around 35-40c idle.

things working better now?
I'm doubtful the chip was exposed to high enough temps long enough to harm it.
Glad you mentioned that little detail. Prolonged that could have actually caused some harm.
