    Unhappy NF2 Dead

    Ok, so i come home from college, going to go on puter, but little brother is already there, he says he will be 5min. I go downstairs fix myself a snack, and all i hear is "Alex your computer shut itself off, and is something burning?" Im like wtf, run upstairs and i can smell the rotting corpse of hardware

    Go to turn it on, and it doesnt get past POST, just stalls, but i manage to get into BIOS and cpu temps seem ok. I restart still nothing open up the case, start it up again, hey look the NF2 fan isnt spinning (that cant be good) have a go at my little brother for not telling me sooner, even though i know he couldnt of.

    So now i have a nearly dead mobo, so question is can this be fixed, or is it a jobby for the manufacturer? I bought the NF7-S from cpu city say 27th June, am i still under warranty? really would appreciate any info if anyone has any......or a new mobo

    Just RMA it

    Funny because my mate has just more-a-less had the same issue. It turned out that his power in his flat is very flaky, and there are quite a lot of spikes in his supply
    Looks like that killed his

    Did he get his from CPU CITY as well? I am just wondering because im not sure if it is still covered by them. When I tried to call no answer, damn them, they should be working all the time

    I can remember being in Tesco and reading an article on how IBM had a pre-production chip running at 1gighz and everyone was marveling over it.
    How times change eh ?

    i very very very very much doubt that the mobo is dead from lack of chipset cooling, unless it was uberly overclocked. if u cant rma it or whateva ill take it off ur hands for slighlly more than the postage costs

    my nf7-s rev1.1 (rated for 333 fsb btw) runs at 400fsb.. one day i swapped the HSF.. having done that i needed 0.1v more on chipset to get it to work properly, few weeks ago i found out why... the paste on original hs was soo thick there was plenty of contact, but with the dip in center of the metal core on the rev1.1s, and AS3 is soo thin, there was only less than 7mm² of contact area, and it was only in the corners aswell!!!!!! (originall paste/hsf was about 30mm²). the fact that i was able to run stably proves that these could run passive with a coper cooler half the size of a cpu one that uses a fan... i think if i pushed my hand against the core i could have even cooled it sufficently!

    ha ha, shall see

    well its not dead as it boots up, but i noticed that where it says what cpu it is, it went from 2222mhz, all the way down to 1100mhz. so i assumed it was that, and the fact that the nf fan isnt spinning at all, and i wouldnt say i overclocked it much anyway, its in the sig.

    Well, if you were previously running 200x11 it has reset itself to 100FSB (which it is meant to do in the event of problems).
    However, you should still RMA it if the NB fan has died.
