is it a cpu problem? or what else?
i have a dfi nf4 ut sli-dr with 3500 venice, i oc it to 2.7 ghz one day, when i started to play games i forgot to turn my fan controllers on so my computer restarted suddenly, after it hang at the dfi logo screen, only way to get it to work is to take the cpu out wait a few hours and start it like that. Ever since if i restart my computer it hangs and the only way it works if i take the cpu out for a few hours.
I sent the cpu to AMD and they sending it back because they say that it works fine,can anyone help me out sorting out my problems?
Could it be the mobo or the cpu
Before sending it in i tested the cpu on my friends system it worked fine could it be that it works fine on stock but when i bump it up it doesnt?
What should i do what are my options?

Sounds like you need more CPU volts.
Could be ram too.

but i took the overclock down and still did that after that.
memory is new too!
could it be mobo?

You need to give some details.
LDT? Vdimm? type of memory? HT? Vcore?

How long did it take for rma to test your cpu out after it arrived at their warehouse

whats your HTT:RAM ratio? Also is gpu overclocked? You make no mention of temperatures either - too many missing parameters to make any kind of judgement. You could have partially damaged it so that it works fine at stock but not when overclocked

they recived it yesterday and called me the same day that it is fine!
ocz 520w pstream
temps between 40-50c
but i think if it works stock and wont work oc'd than it still could be cpu or mobo.

believe that when you overclock your cpu, that your motherboard is also stressed, because your motherboard is a physically bigger component it can handle more spress that your little CPU, but with HTT motherboard can handle less stress that from years gone pass, it would be your motherboard dude, replace it or RMA it

So your RAM was running at approx 245Mhz - what exactly is it and what were the settings for it?

he said it was ocz 4000vx.. that stuff will run 245 @ 3.3v no problem, right?
