I actually contemplate that one, if compatible, which it should be. Here, it costs the same as the Intel i7-3930K (500). If the new processor won't remedy the problem, I'm going to jump from my ground floor window ; )

I have never done an RMA. The dealerships where I bought all parts for all PCs in December 2011 no longer exist; but I should look deeper into how an RMA works. Maybe I should then try to RMA the ASUS mainboards, too.

I would. as long as they are still in the warranty period. Even if I didn't use them, I would RMA them and get another board an d CPU. If nothing else, you could sell them get some of that money back, or at least build another rig with them. I would still consider the 4930K if you are going to buy. I', almost positive they use the same socket. You could check your board's list and make sure they issued a bios update enabling the board to use them. You would just have to update your bios.

I just checked, and your board lists it under CPU support. It even lists the 4960X. http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/l...1&s=42&m=P9X79 PRO&os=&hashedid=ITjeO1wq0nRUPfej

BIOS Update http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/d...P9X79&cpu=Core i7-4930K (3.4GHz, L3:12M, 6C, HT, 130W, rev.S1)&pcb=ALL&sincebios=4210&memo=

Update: Bought an i7-4930k as replacement processor. Let's hope that was it. Then, I can read the numbers off the i7-3930k and send it to Intel - the 3 year warranty runs out in three weeks.

If that was not it - the only thing I have not yet bought twice is the PC-case ; )

When you swap CPU's check the CPU socket very closely for any bent CPU pins. If there is even 1 bent pin it will kill the whole set up. They are very difficult to see too. Magnifying glass is in order.

Sure, did that with each mainboard change in this never ending saga.

If it turns out that it was the processor (for whatever reason), I would be very surprised why Intel's very own diagnostics tools did not identify the processor to be damaged in the first place.

So, a new i7-4930K arrived. I took the i7-3930K out and put the new one in. This all takes place on a new ASUS P9X79 mainboard (BIOS 4608) with new 4 x 4 GB Kingston memory of the type I use in all dumb compute boxes and a new AMD FirePro graphics card. I have a whole box of new hardware components at my lab now.

I also bought a nifty little €5 set for breadboarding (LEDs, switches, BIOS-beep speaker, etc.). Switching on, I get one short beep and into the BIOS - processor/memory are recognised. So far, so good. I now try for the n-th time to install Windows 7 Professional.

I downloaded the drivers from each vendor's (Intel, AMD, Realtek, Asmedia, etc.) website, not from ASUS.

This is fun... not.

Please let me know how it goes. I know how clean installs go. I do one every 3 months or so. I do a lot of stuff with my computer few people do. I do it, just to keep it clean and as light as possible. I know what it's like. In the FWIW department, I always download drivers from the Asus site. I have learned that many manufacturers alter the drivers to work right with their boards. That does not mean what you did is wrong. Try it and it may work better. Please let me know. The chipset driver is probably the most important and I make sure I install it first.

This is a good guide on how to install Windows. It may tell you some things that will make it easier. Clean Install Windows 7

I would like to know how you progress. I would recommend you not install the Asus AI Suite, at least at first.

I just re read the last few posts in this thread and saw that you mentioned RMAs. I have done my share and it is an experience, believe me. But, if it was me, I would RMA every single component I replaced. bar none, as long as they are still under warranty. The only problem you may have is convincing them it is defective. Most ram has a lifetime warranty and you usually have little trouble with an RMA, especially if it failed a memory test. A word to the wise. Every thing I RMA, I would recommend you take excellent pictures of. The way many manufacturers get out of replacing components is to say they found damage and it was customer abuse. Pictures of everything, both sides can help them 'change their position'. With Motherboards several pictures are really necessary, especially of the CPU socket showing the CPU pins clearly.

Yes, I know the clean install routine by heart by now... No ASUS Suite II installed. I don't need it. I only installed the minimum drivers and my simulation software so far. Now, Windows 7 is downloading 165 updates with 681,5 MB to be installed, so I will go for a walk...

As for RMAing some of the processors and mainboards, which I should do, I dusted and photographed everything. Once I get the original invoices back from the tax office, I'll send the whole shebang in. I only have two weeks left in the 3 year warranty period (Intel/ASUS/AMD).

Sometimes it is easier on you and the computer to uncheck all but the first 25 and install them 25 at a time. It takes a little longer, but sometimes it works better. I would not install the graphics driver it tries to install. Download that from AMD Download Drivers
