I bought that motherboard from ebay and installed it into my machine, it turns on for a little while (around 30seconds) then cuts off, I havent put any thermal stuff on the CPU and heatsink so would this be the cpu over heating? Also when my motherboard blew the firt time I wasnt too sure if the CPU was damaged as well. So what could the possible problem be? everything else is in place. I obviously dont want to buy a new CPU if the old one works fine.
The new motherboard is exactly the same, every component is in place, the cpu has been thermal pasted but the pc stil comes on for 30 seconds then switches off and on, off and on, so it must be a power problem? The power cable is fine so it has to be the CPU? When the motherboard blew there was a big chance that the CPU went with it or it could of been just the CPU.
