Help guys!

My computer was working dine up until the other day when it would get to the Asus splash screen then simply crash. I couldn't access the BIOS or anything!

 

I have a 3930k OC'd to 3.9GHz and 2x4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport with an Asus P9-X79 Pro.

 

I have tried all 56 RAM slot configurations and to no avail!

 

If anyone has any information, I would be so grateful! 2 days without a PC is hard and you know it!

1: Google what the error code means. Just because we are a forum doesn't mean we are here to Google things for you

2: Why do you have a GTX 770 with a 3930k? 

Don't you think I have Googled it by now? I ccan't find any clear info. Why not?

I realized that because I contradicted myself by Googeling the error code and finding out it was a memory related issue so I edited my original post.

 

Could be dead RAM sticks unless you have confirmed these sticks to be working

Ok man, I have tried 2 pairs of working DDR3 modules: 2x Crucial and 2x Corsair

I'm assuming that both didn't work?

 

Could be a dead Mobo.

Yeah. Although I got it to work with one module once and then when I rebooted it didn't work!

That is so bizzare. I am going to still say the motherboard is borked (somehow)

 

How long have you had it?

As long as you registered it with the manufacture, you should be able to RMA it through them.

Tried a CMOS reset (but you will lose your overclock)? 

b4 error code is USB Hot Plug according to the manual. Try removing all usb devices and try again.
