Gary, If he changes sata type to AHCI without the reg entries, it won't boot will it?

The HT Link Frequency should be set as close to 2000MHz as possible, yours is 2200MHz. If it goes a bit below, that's OK. You may have to adjust the CPU Host Clock control a bit.

Your On Chip SATA type should be AHCI instead of Native IDE.
thanks for your advice mate, but if i set it to AHCI wont it fail to boot on me? also the HT link, will that underclock my cpu? i dont mind doing it if it gets things working properly.

haha that's fine mate, i'm just glad your trying to help me out and besides 2am it pretty late to be reading about someone else's pc problems lol

well as i suspected i tried the ACHI mode and it blue screened on me so went to fail safe loading, started up and got a few new windows updates (although not the security one that failed) had the log all ready to go and my pc is being a son of a b****... the games that normally blue screens on me are.. well, not at the moment.. so in the name of science i shall sit down and have a hard gaming session and try and get this pc to do what it does best!

i will change the HTlink in a moment too.

The HT link is the signaling between the CPU and RAM, it won't effect the clock of the CPU.
I'm still thinking your board may be defective, AHCI should work OK for you.

AHCI will work if you follow this tutorial. You cannot change from IDE to AHCI unless the OS is forced to install the AHCI drivers. AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

i didn't get a bsod but after an hour of gaming on dayz standalone it finally black screen and chucked me out of the game, although no restart. it was weird, the game was still running, and i could hear my character moving but all i could see was my desktop. but here is the files you requested.


thanks for your help guys.

oh one more thing, when i first brought the components, and set it all up the original psu from scan.co.uk blew up, was sparks flying out of back of it and loud gunshot sounds. had to hit the breaker switch in the house. was all working the day i built it, then next day the psu went bang.. i went out emidetly and brought a corsair cx750m i figured the components were ok as everything was running, and thought that if they had damage they just wouldn't work period.

all the cables were plugged in correctly, it was just defective. scan took it back no questions asked when i said what happened so i presume its happened before with that model. could it be a busted motherboard then? as all the component tests have come back ok?

That's actually what I'm thinking. But, would like to really see. Is it the board, the card or possibly the PSU (which I doubt) Especially suspecting the board after you telling us the PSU blew up. Did you yank the cable out of the back quickly? I would hope so. Fireworks inside the computer can ruin everything. Plus the fact that your board, I think, was not made for that CPU. It requires a bios update to run it. That sometimes does not work perfectly, and could be a factor in this. I'm just guessing, but I have seen it before and we have had lengthy discussions about it among ourselves.

There is no test that I know of. It is usually evident, or the process of elimination.
