That complaint on that build is all over the web. I've yet to see anyone nail it everytime. Sometimes you find folk that tweaked memory timing, others replaced every part and didn't fix it which points to a basic rig issue. That is, time to change cpu maker and board.
There are so many folk with this issue with that sort of build that well, hard to ignore all the pleas for help.
And then you have folk that want a fix for what they have. My lesson over the years is to accept the occasional lockup on that build. Or just make another Intel. rig.
My computer SPEC :
PSU : Cooler Master 650W
Motherboard : Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
RAM : Kingston HyperX Fury DDR3 (4GB x 2)
GPU : MSI GTX 970 ( 1 month old)
CPU : AMD FX-4350
Storage : Kingston SSD 120GB
The windows is in SSD. I have faced this problem for 1 month but no solution. And the problem started after 2 weeks i change to the new GPU.
My problem is :
- suddenly no display and no POST in game BUT the timing of no display is vary starting from 5 min up till 4 hours in game.
- during no display what i notice is CPU_LED on my motherboard is ON.
- BUT after some time the computer can reboot itself like normal if i just let it be and the timing also vary from 5 min up to whole night.
What i have done to fix this issue :
- Reset the CMOS
- Update BIOS
- Check bent or damage pin of CPU (no problem)
- No overheat sign ( max 65 celcius in game) both CPU and GPU
- Thermal paste CPU is ok
- Reassemble all components
- Change memory slot
- Replug all the power cable
- Reseat the GPU and other components
- Run PRIME for 24 hours
- Send this desktop to IT technician but no problem so the effort in vain
- I even play Batman in front of him for 1 hour but no problem because the timing vary.
- Run 3D Mark Vantage to test GPU and CPU (The GPU Test is okay but the CPU Test sometimes ok and sometimes not)
- Reinstall game in other hard drives
Please help me, if you need more information i will tell. For now, i think this is what i have done to fix the problem. Is it because of CPU or PSU? I have checked the motherboard manual. For Onboard LEDs, in this case CPU_LED is on. This is what the manual says.
"POST State LEDs. The POST State LEDs provide the status of these key components during POST (Power-On-Self Test): CPU, memory modules, VGA card, and hard disk drives. If an
error is found, the critical component’s LED stays lit up until the problem is solved."

I dont want to waste money to buy new hardware but the problem is still exist. I need to know based on your expertise what should be the problem. I know based on the manual if the CPU_LED is on then maybe CPU is the problem but how can i confirm? Which component fail actually? Is it the motherboard, CPU or PSU. Please help me guys THank you for your time.
