    Maybe your mobo is bad.

    Also, what's your power supply make and model? How many amps it has on the +12V rail. Check your power supply's label to know exactly.

    Search at the manufactures website for the latest mobo chipset drivers. Just get all the latest drivers they have for the mobo, b/c who knows maybe it's the on-brd sound card driver or the gigabyte lan driver.

    After you do that, make sure your PSU isn't going bad, maybe this is what killed the 1st mobo. Dwnload Speedfan or motherboard monitor and watch the PSU voltage levels to see if they're stable. Run a prog like Prime95 in the background to load it the pc too.

    ok ive downloaded both
    speed fan
    shows temps ok

    Aopen powersupply
    psu output = 300W

    this is the voltages:
    vcore1: 1.31v - stays stable
    vcore2: 2.58v- stays stable

    +3.3v : 3.33v - stays stable
    +5V: 2.80V - stays stable but moves up a bit to 2.88v
    +12V: 11.78v stable always

    (next coloumn)
    -12V : -8.66V fluctuates and droped to -2.46 while i was viewing nd then comes back up to -8.66v
    -5V: -2.94 fluctuates to lower values like -0.83v while i was viewing and then comes back up to -2.94v
    +5v: 4.03v fluctuates to 2.98v while cpu works
    vbat: 0.00v always

    is this normal or what?
