    CPU: Intel C2D E8400 Rev. E0
    MOBO: Maximus Formula X38
    RAM: F2-8500CL5-2GBPK (4x2GB)

    CPU volt - 1.275v
    NB - 1.30v
    DRAM - 2.1v
    FSB STRAP to CPU - 333MHz

    I researched some old threads on this combo and arrived at the above settings. I've always had this running stock for the past several years, but today I wanted to live on the edge just for a little while. SOOOOOOOO anyways, Rated FSB at stock was only 1066 MHz, but now it's 1599.91 MHz. Is this okay or tomorrow it die? ^^

    What kills them is heat.

    Prime95 will show you what your system can handle as it puts a massive load on it that you will never see in daily use. Run Prime95 for an afternoon, if it survives that it should be good to go.

    I shipped it to LA this morning. Hopefully it survives the trip. I'll find out in a few hours. It was a gift.

    I turned it on/off 10 times on my end. On his end, the fans twitch, but it doesn't turn on... -______-

    Have the person check the power connector is seated cleanly in the power supply. Also, try a different outlet for the power cord, direct to outlet and not through a power strip.

    I have a small check list:
    1. PSU switched on. check!
    2. PSU cable plugged in firmly. check!
    3. PSU cable plugged directly into outlet. check!
    4. re-seat GPU. check!
    5. re-seat motherboard power 20+4 pin. next
    6. re-seat memory. next
    7. re-seat cpu power 4+4 pin. next
    8. clear CMOS? :(

    The heatsink covers half the motherboard so re-seating memory & cpu 4+4 pin is going to be tricky.

    Motherboard LEDs light up when the PSU is plugged into the outlet, but when the power button is pressed, all fans spin for a split second and then nothing...
