I idles at 29.0 celsius, highest temp I have seen is 39.0 during the Passmark video testing. Asus support says it sounds like a short, offered to RMA, but suggested I replace the PSU first to see if that is the cause. Thanks guys.

This is running two installations of Sierra Chart, with maybe 12 charts per install. 39.0.

I hate the stock Intel, and also Cooler Master, heat sink designs because they make it very easy for you to damage the CPU pins.

Also, if you haven't been practicing ESD precautions, the easiest ways to do this without buying the wrist band are:

(1) Touch the wall plates of your light switches should have 2 screws before working with anything - those are grounded.

(2) Attach your PSU to the case and connect the power cable to a working outlet, but leave the power switch on the PSU off. Touch the case before working with anything - it's now grounded.

I was meticulous. Spent from 8am until maybe 2:30pm just putting it together. Being my first build and having bought pricey parts, I went through each step after reading the manuals and watching videos. I also bought an anti static wrist band for $2.99.

The only parts of the build that bothered me:

1) The case has cable management, but only around 3/4" of space when you include the bumpout. That meant I had to really think thru my cable routing so that larger cables never crossed. Also, the backside of the mobo is open, and I did not want any cables going that direction.

2) Asus comes with a Q connector for the front panel connections. It seemed very flimsy and loose, so I removed it and used it as a visual guide to put all those connections directly to the mobo.

3) When I did the initial startup, it had a cpu fan error on the bios screen. I unplugged the fan and reconnected it, and that fixed the problem.

other than that, it was very smooth and relaxed up until the restart issue, which did not start until after I started installing W7 updates.

Just a quick/easy item to check, maybe try another or without the powerstrip/surge protector/UPS unit.

I'm getting warmer. Intel had an update to the gpu.

I am running the asus pc diagnostics stress tests and everything is coming back clean.

Possibly removing and resetting the cpu fan did something as well. No crash for the past hour or so, which is a record. I am really hoping this gets worked out soon.

My timing was near perfect. When I disassembled the old sony, one of the capacitors had started to leak.

I am running 2 laptops for now, and no issues with 3 screens out of either one of them, so no real rush. Except that my entire trade room has been taken over with boxes, manuals, driver discs, old parts, wires everywhere. 3 sets of mouse/keyboard on my desk gets confusing way more than it should.

Gotcha.


Quoting

The motherboard rear cut-out is common to all of the builds I've assembled. I try not to get any cables in that direction either, though the cables are all insulated.

Any thoughts on using a tiny amount of electrical grease on the mobo connections?

Hmm, after all of this Gary I'm guessing the experience of building your own machine will come in handy one day.

I can't help but wonder though if it was a good business decision given the cost of lost opportunity in your 'downtime'...

To me, trading is a business and sometimes one needs to consider the cost of the non-trading activity.

At the same time i admire you for building your own machine...well done.

If I understand this debugging effort correctly. You have tested your memory sticks with no change / effect. A memory stick problem typically results in a black screen during boot or shortly after windows attempts to load, which is not the symptom your reporting. You have updated your BIOS to the current version from the ASUS web-site. You are using the graphics driver support directly from the MOBO / BIOS itself, as the Xeon does not have graphics support. So far, this looks and sounds to me like a graphics driver problem. I have seen the video anomaly your screen capture shows in cases where a loose / poorly fitting video card was not securely installed, but you don't have a video card, thus pointing back at the native ASUS graphics driver. Perhaps run a simple test: plug in a reliable Video card, connect it to a single monitor, and see how it affects your symptoms.

Be Patient and Trade Smart
