  1. I just got a RMA'd A7N8X deluxe ver1.04 back from asus and have it running fine, except when I play games I get the post error reporter "system fail cpu test "
    Wondering if anyone know of a solution

    A7N8X deluxe
    AMD 2600+
    OCZ 512 DDR400
    Ati 9600 pro

    Welcome to TechSpot

    There are a few possibilities here:
    - it may be that your CPU-cooler is too tight on the CPU
    - you may have an Audigy card installed
    - you may need an updated BIOS
    but the most likely candidate is a too weak powersupply.

    For future reference, please fill in your computer-specs under "user cp" (at top of page).

    I have checked to make sure the heat sink is not too tight-
    I don't have a Audigy card installed-
    I flashed the bios with the latest version-

    I am going to grab a new power suply today and give that a try.
    Thanks for your help realblackstuff

    Make sure to get a brand-name PSU, like Enermax or Antec.
    If you plan on any expansion soon, get one around 500-550Watt.
    Otherwise 400-450 will do fine.
