OK guys, here's the deal. I guess I don't have another processor. I installed it this morning-got nothing, the monitor wouldn't even come on. I reinstalled it 3 more times - same thing. I thought it was a video problem. I uninstalled my video card-still nothing. I pluged it in DVI, HDMI and VGA still nothing. I reinstalled the original CPU and booted up the first time. So, I guess the CPU I thought I had is DOA. Now I have to reinstall the video card and find some way to buy a CPU. Any Suggestions?

I hope you guys haven't left me for dead. I was able to RMA the x2 CPU. Sent it off today. I have some new ram coming should be here Thursday. Any other suggestions or are you convinced it is the CPU?

I am not convinced at all. Given the previous history....

If I were you I would wait for the X2 replacement and test with that before getting the X6 replaced. While you are waiting you can use the new RAM to doublecheck that it isn't a RAM issue.

Thanks for the help and suggestions. I am still not sure about the MB and if it is the MB, I am not sure I want to try a third one. I know the CPU fan connector does not work and - just the way I think, if one thing doesn't work, how many other things are causing problems.

How sure are you the connector doesn't work? Have you tested it with multiple fans? Checked the BIOS to make sure it isn't disabled for whatever crazy reason?

If you are pretty sure, I would RMA the motherboard on that alone.

I got the ram in today and installed it. I don't think it is running at the correct speed though. It is G Skill F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM (2X2). The timings are 7-8-7-24 1.6V. I have set the timings as best I can. To enable you to set timings you have to change the dram timing modes. The options are DCT0,DCT1,Both. I put both. I think the problem is the FSB/Dram ratio. I don't know what it should be. My choices are 1:2, 1:2.66, 1:3.33 and 1:4. Any suggestions?
I am still getting BSODs. But it seems much better, just occasionally now. I have had none since the new ram, but it has only been in for a couple hours.

That's an excellent sign. I have asked someone to come and have a look at your timings too, I will admit I know next to nothing about that area.

I had a BSOD yesterday. However, I had been 'playing' with bios settings. I reset everything to default settings only changing boot order and set to ahci. No problems since. Just an update.
