I got up this morning had me coffee turned on my pc and it did not post bios so I was like WTF....

Anyway I saw a light "which is new" red 1  Shocked says "cpu hot" but how can it be I only just turned it on.

I have got it to boot 1 time by resetting the bios it does not store any time or anything atm so was thinking new battery which I will try latter or when I have a new battery for my mother board :<... Also goto bios and hit save did not reboot or save so something deffo wrong;/

I can't game now until this fixed, hopefully will be a cheap easy fix else it could be a few weeks until I get my pc up and running :<... Must of been all the THG work I have done on it these last few weeks killed it lol...

I have only a single core 1.4 cpu laptop now which can barley load steam so defffo no games "unless they tiny"

Will keep you updated..

Any ideas ? for the issue its a XFX 790i ultra

is heatsink seated correctly? Could have worked it's way a little lose.
never heard of the bios battery dying...ever. But it does sound like that, could have just been a duff battery maybe, get new one and give it a shot. You haven't tried flashing bios or anything recently have you?

I found the issues :<

Right yes i did update my bios over a week ago to a custom version well, not exsactly custom but a modified bios from EVGA P10 bios, made to work on this XFX same chipset 790i ultra etc.

Anyway it flashed fine no errors etc and ran fine uptill the other morning as said above.

After striping it out i cleaned everything like super clean even noticed a pin on the cpu bed/mb was slighty bent so fixed that but then i thought right just encase its that custom bios i will roll it back to the P09 offical xfx bios...

So all back together and booted 1st time so i thought right roll back now whilst its working watched the flash doing its job "beep erase" "beep write" etc and right at the fooking end it failed on 3 blocks so i thought wtf and now the bios is 100% naffed untill i get a new bios chip which is on its way today when i order it Smile..

That should then get me up and running and i won't try the modified evga p10 bios anymore lols..

only cost me £10 and i was told to do this ages ago as the dude i bought this board off said he thought the bios was dodgy..

Will be up and running hopefully time monday or sometime nextweek Smile

well least you know exactly what needs fixing. Changing bios chip is easy enough. Just use something like a small blade screwdriver under one end of the current chip it lever it out. Most chip holders grip then pretty tight. Next be very careful when putting the new chip in as with all small IC chips the legs are very soft and it's easy to bend one back due to the tight fitting holder.

Yea got it out fine bent 1 of the corner legs a little but goes strait again. didn't want to purchase a bios remover tool so used a thin piece of metal :P

Will be careful when it gets here but looks a pretty solid chip/legs and holder Smile hopefully just go in easy  Confused

never going to mess with it again lol.. I will upgrade my cpu/mem/mb asap and let my son have this 790i ultra, gskill 4gb ram and gtx 260 as his 1st pc  Cool

yeah that's why I'm never going to go back to buying motherboards with just one bios chip. With a second chip you just push a little button on the mobo and boot off the 2nd bios chip instead.


indeed that will be a awesome first PC for a kid his age!

Just an update my PC is working better than ever with this new bios. The dude I bought it of did say he thinks the bios chips were shit and that I should change it.

Year and half later, after a few bios updates it died, Now its a new chip and I can see allot of difference it boots quicker and the bios is allot faster overall the PC seems much healthier. I am running at 3.4 overclocked and seems very stable as before it would not clock over 2.8 so its much better as said and games seem allot smoother  Cool

I Now just need the summer holidays to hurry up so I can claim my PC back as my son has been on it more than me since its been fixed, testing all these new games for me so I can see if its stable which it deffo seems so :)

So a new bios does or can make a big difference Smile
