Question about ASUS CROSSHAIR Motherboard
I upgraded from my old power supply that has a 4 pin 12v cpu cable to a ANTEC TP-750, it has both 4 pin and 8 pin 12v cpu cables that I installed on my CROSSHAIR motherboard. At first I connected the 4pin cpu cable and it booted and loaded windows successfully but after a while it shuts off like if pull the plug. I checked the connections and I saw that my CROSSHAIR motherboard had a cap on some of the pins on the cpu connector which i removed and connected the 8 pin 12v cpu cable and NO did not connect the pcie cable it has 2 pins loose. When I connected the 8 pin 12v cable and power on it didnt boot and i get a burn smell so I carried my pc my a computer technician and he said the cpu was over volted. I had a amd athlon 4400 X2 and i bought a new cpu. Will that new cpu (amd athlon 6400+ X2) also be overvolted and burn?
No i dnt think so some time due to manufacturing defects this happens the new one wont burn unless and untill u over volt it.
