  5. Over the last few years, the board has been on LN2 about a dozen times and every 2-3 sessions it would arrive in a state where it would shut down and no longer react to the power button. The only way to get it back to work was putting it in a 120c oven for 10 minutes or so. However, after its most recent breakdown + ovening it now exhibits the following behavior: - With Seasonic Titanium 1000W: no reacton to power button at all - With Corsair AX1500i: it powers up, but shuts down before it completes POST - With Silverstone OP1000: it powers up and works perfectly fine. But, if I set the Vmch to any value other than [Auto] in the BIOS, the board shuts down during POST with a OCP/OVP-like click coming from somewhere in the chipset PWM area. If I boot into OS at [Auto] value and raise the Vmch using the TweakIT thingy - system works fine, even handles LinX load with a quadcore. If I adjust the BIOS settings so that the [Auto] value no longer induces the default ~1.25V, I get the same shutdown on POST. Also, the same happens when I set the "EPU Phase Control" option in the BIOS from [Auto] to [Extreme]. But this might be due to [Auto] option for Vmch changing. I tried ovening it some more. I tried flashing other BIOS version. I tried a BIOS chip from another board. I tried different kinds of CPUs. Nothing seems to help and I'm out of ideas. Any advice / help is welcome. EDIT: pictures of the chipset PWM area: https://abload.de/img/img_0525ezivo.jpg https://abload.de/img/img_0527akc2u.jpg https://abload.de/img/img_0528q6fho.jpg

  9. Considering all this, first try to check these LAN chips, how they heat up and if there is a difference between them. Good chip becomes lukewarm. Bad or cold or too hot chip. I hope this info helps you.

  10. Let's go in chronological order: Before the failure - while I was trying for the max freq I raised the voltage to SB by setting 1.2V. - F10 - Enter - reboot - black screen - bios reset - black screen - attached post card marks NO. Later - Considering all this I thought that SB died. Today changed SB chip (If you look closely at the photo of the chip you will find that it is different from the original. Since I didn't have ICH9R I soldered ICH10, the one they mount on P45 boards.) and card started to hang on post 2A (better than NO). Checking the heating of the LAN and Audio chips I realized that one LAN chip gets hot and the other remains cold. Then unsoldered chip that warmed and board kept crashing on POST 2A. Unsoldered other LAN chip and Yessssssssss !!!!!!!!!!! It works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Hello guys. Since I have 3 cards still to be repaired and you also have dead REX collections. And also considering that I managed to fix my infrared soldering station, I picked up one of my dead REXs. Result)))))))))

  12. Why do I speak to you about the SB above all, because two REXs that have arrived to me apparently good with all the tensions OK, restarted by changing SB.

  13. Another test to do: measure resistance data lines of all USB ports. all must be almost equal and have at least 1 Mohm. normally the value is 2-4 Mohm
    1 point
  14. Another test to do: compared to the previous one, the card must be turned on and the temperature of the same components of the previous test is checked. SB temperature I detect with an infrared thermometer pointing it to the center before turning on the board and turning on watching how the temperature changes in 1-2 minutes. Temperatures above 45-50 degrees indicate the failure of the SB.

  15. Hi Noxinite. Do this test: connect power supply, just 24 pins, turn on power supply and do not turn on motherboard. leave 10 minutes and touch SB, lan chip, audio chip, multicontroller chip. They must all be of the room temperature. if you have infrared thermostat it would be perfect, infrared camera even better. Pay particular attention to the SB. If it becomes at least 3-5 degrees warmer than the rest, the SB surely to be changed.

  16. Here is some info from my latest session to try and fix my boards. Resistances of main voltage rails measured: At these points: I then removed all of the Fujitsu capacitors as most of them appeared to be bad, giving me these resistances: Unfortunately boards 1, 2 & 4 were still having issues, so I checked the voltages as well: I then checked the post codes and board 1 has d5 and board 2 has d4 - this is with various memory tried in each ram slot. For board 4 if I remove the EPS 8-pin the board will turn on, so clearly there is an issue there but the general resistances seem okay. Also, I tried a working BIOS chip from board 3 in each of the other boards, however I still got the same behaviour. All in all no progress and still 3 dead boards, but maybe someone finds something useful in this info.

  17. in theory you can bust weak vrm´s or trap ocp by adding too much capacity. i think in case of nb or memory vrm until 5000uF should not be a problem at all. and cpu vrm is even stronger. but you need to take care of the cap quality itself. you need very low esr and the right voltage rating for best results.

  18. I sincerely hope that the entire design team of ASUS X48 boards catches a disease unknown to medicine and dies a slow and painful death in a country where euthanasia is illegal. Had two X48 boards in storage, one RE and one P5E3prem. Bought a CPU I wanted to test. Both boards show code 00 and don't POST with any CPU I try ...

  19. yep, tantals are the best option to replace the fujitsu crap i like to use https://eu.mouser.com/ProductDetail/KEMET/T530X477M006ATE004?qs=r%2B%2FF0HTKyUcLhCoNF%2Bv0HQ== for memory and https://eu.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Panasonic/EEF-GX0E471R?qs=%2Fha2pyFadui%2FODXTv%2Fc0aeZAwW96RiBqHHpNWPFtmnCIPAqDWGVwrQ%3D%3D for cpu and nb because they are not so tall. if you are doing it right, it will look like this :

  24. Sam, Of course I have no idea or solution to provide. The reason I am posting is that I have an Asus Apex VI ( X299 ) - retired for 3 months now - that behaves exactly the same. Lights turn on, other times it boots, other times it boots and shuts down in 5-10 minutes, and other times it does not even start. Tested with 10 different PSU's. Took it to a local electronics lab ( best there is locally ). The guy who owns the lab went nuts for 3 days. Result - NO CLUE. So, I decided ( as Michael did ) to hang it to my wife's Christmas cactus, to remind me that we pay an arm and a leg for HW, that may decide on their own WHEN AND HOW to function. Merry Christmas to all

  25. https://abload.de/img/img_0075eseli.jpg Up for sale is a 2x1GB set of Corsair 8888C4 Dominators. Given that its previous owner got it directly from Corsair and that I haven't seen any 8888C4 earlier than this (week 0634) it's likely that this was either an ES or a press kit. On MHz/volt it clocks much better than any other D9GMH that I ever had or seen: On Biostar TP45 HP it does 32M at: 485 3-3-3 2.58V, 505 3-4-3 2.58V, 550 4-4-4 2.02V, 565 4-4-4 2.08V. On ASUS P5Q-E it does 32M at: 550 4-4-4 2.00V,. 575 4-4-4 2.10V. Unfortunately, the kit stability issues approaching 600MHz irrespective of the timings, which are characteristic for nearly all 1GB DDR2 modules made by Corsair, GeiL, G.Skill, Kingston and Patriot. This is caused by limitations in the PCB design, thus can only be "fixed" by swapping the ICs to another PCB. This was initially my plan as well, but so far I wasn't able to find a connection to perform the job, hence the sale. If your DDR2 benching range is below 600MHz then you simply won't find any DDR2 better than these, period. Asking 50 Euros excluding shipping. Open for offers.

  26. First two sticks are part of the same kit. The rest are part-outs because many kits are very uneven and when you start molesting them, "having a second stick just for having a complete kit" doesn't really matter anymore.

  27. Up for sale is my best set of B-die. Despite the low bin (3200C15) it's pretty reliable for 32M at 2066 12-11-11 although, being an old kit, it won't do copywaza even at 1933. My results: websmile's results: Asking 200 Euros + shipping. My preferred method of payment is IBAN banktransfer but PayPal is also possible if buyer takes care of the transaction fees.

  35. Have only 2 PSUs works on both, from 1,25 to 1,45 it is no problem, will test more once i have that heatsink on BTW, might have killed the 2nd one, had it working perfectly, but then i tried to reinstall the original Fujitsu cap, which worked after the 3rd try, but now it doesn't recognize power button, i think the heatcycles might have killed the NB... Initial problem with the 2nd one was shorted capacitor on Vnb if it interrests you EDIT, Board one tested to 1,65V seems back in bussiness, but nb filtering looks like this now EDIT2: The board i mentioned i killed lives again, but VRM is allso dead again
