On the top of the screw to prevent the metal screw to ground in the motherboard. Make it sure that the screw only grounded to the casing. Check also some metal in the back of the casing maybe it also the cause of the motherboard grounded.

    It's ok. to touch the big heat sink of the processor. But don't touch some parts in the motherboard to avoid the electric discharge from your body to the motherboard. It's ok also to clip some long tip on the back of motherboard but avoid to scratch the board to avoid damage the connection of the board.

Failed cpu test

What test was this, usually if the CPU is bad, you can't run any test.
This board is so outdated you shouldn't waste any money on it, a 300.00 computer of today will put this one to shame. And that's an entire computer, not just the motherboard or CPU.

The highest vcore voltage on my intel 2500k

Suggest you try an overclocking forum

All I know, is you bump the Voltage up in SMALL increments.
Bump up a small increment, then do a 24 hour burn in.
(Yes. Means computer runs 24 hours straight for the test)

Everything's cool? Then bump the Voltage up another small increment.
Do another 24 hour burn in test.

GO TOO FAR, and things start getting 'bumpy', and eventually system turns off.
GO TOO MUCH at first, and you stand the chance of frying stuff.

Also; the Ram Memory, and expansion slot frequency rate, support changes, when you change the Voltage for the CPU.

You are changing the CPU's front side bus, also. (FSB)

[Frequency Rate = 'Speed'
People understand the term Speed, so they can relate to what is going on.
It is actually a rudimentary term.
Leaves you not exactly knowing what is going on.

A CPU (Processor) has an Oscillator in it. Operates in a frequency rate.
The Front Side Bus (FSB) is measured in a Frequency Rate.
How many Cycles per Second.

Example; CPU operates Up To a maximum frequency rate of 2.4GigaHertz. (2.4GHz)

Means it can operate Up To a frequency rate of 2.4 Billion Cycles per Second.

Mega = approximately 1 Million
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

(2400MHz = 2.4GHz)

YOUR processor. The one you have now.
Was made with a BUNCH of other processors.
Intel tests them, and has a pass test range.

YOUR CPU may have been at the Bottom of that range, who knows?
This means YOUR CPU may not be able to be overclocked, like Harry's down the street; or some guy/gal on the internet.

THEY may have received a CPU that was in the Middle of the pass test range, or towards the Top.

Will not start 2 long beeps

First off, if you recently upgraded the memory or CPU, put the old components back and see if the upgrade was the cause of the problem.

Next, make sure your power supply is connected correctly. Many motherboard need an additional power connector for the CPU. This will be specified in your MB manual.

Finally, make sure memory and CPU are properly seated in their sockets. Sometimes bumping into the computer or moving it can loosen them.

If you have multiple memory modules try testing using one at a time in different slots. This will tell you if you have a bad module or slot on the motherboard.

If this does not identify the cause inspect your CPU. Be VERY careful removing it. You may need to heat it up with a hair dryer to soften the thermal paste. Carefully inspect the pins/contacts on the CPU and socket to make sure none are bent, missing or dirty. Even if you don't see a problem the CPU could still be damaged. The only way to be sure it to try it in another computer or try an identical CPU in your computer. Once again, be VERY careful or take it to a professional.

Aside from that you may have a failure on your motherboard which is way too complex to cover here. You may be able to find capacitors that have the top split open or burn marks on the MB. The best bet is to have it tested by the manufacturer.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

Hi, I have motherboard gigabyte GA-8I945GZME-RH, why the cpu temperature over heating? although I change my cooling fan. Thanks

the temperature show in windows is not right sometimes. enter cmos setup by press del(or f2) open system helth to see the right cpu temperature and voltage. still over heating? you need a better heatsink and don't feget use some heatsink compounds.

If cpu fried is there any hope for motherboard

Yes there is. There is a slight possibility that the motherboard sitll works, but it is better to test it with a processor of the same type, or one that has the same socket to actually see if it works.

If you need further assistance please post.
Thank you

Cpu temp overhead

Clean the cooler on the top of the cpu.
If this not cooling or change the thermal grease.
Get some cooler in the case to get a better airflow.

Asus A8V-E not start

Looking at this post, I think your Motherboard is bad.
Have you tried a different Video Card?
My other thought is the CPU is overheating due to incorrect seating of the FAN and heat sink.
Try cleaning the CPU off, and put new paste on the CPU, then re-seat the heat sink.
Be careful to make sure the anchors are pushed all the way down by slightly twisting or wiggling the heat sink.
Check for looseness.
Push down on all memory sticks to ensure they are seated all the way in.
They should click on both sides.
If it still gives you a red light, then contact the website of the manufacturer, and get an RMA number for a replacement.

1. Graphics Card, put $200 or more in a GeForce GTX or GTS, Radeon 46xx or 48xx
2. Memory, put 2GB
3. If you can take the graphics card, your CPU can cope with the games. Remember that graphics card is more important than a CPU. e.g. a $250 graphics with a $150 CPU will be better than a $100 graphics and a $300 CPU.

CPU fan stops, computer shuts down

You must have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan power connector or the system can not monitor the fans speed. Your PC will shut down & give you that message. (The fan must be connected to the correct power plug).
If when you did replace the CPU's fan & had to remove the heat sink, which is where the fan screws into & did not clean the old thermal grease off the CPU & heatsink & replace with new thermal grease than your CPU will still overheat. If you add thermal grease over top of old thermal grease your CPU will over heat.
This is all a balancing act. If any one is not correct your system will shut down. (This is better than killing the CPU).
To remove old thermal grease use a clean cloth damped with house hold alcohol & use the same on the bottom of the heatsink. Please allow plenty of time for the alcohol to dry.

Good Luck! Take your time.
