    Ok so here is my problem - When I start my pc up it gives me 2-3 bsod's and after that it will work fine. So normally I start testing different components. I have run Prime for 6 hour no problem, run memtest for 8 hour no problem, checked the hdd no problem, removed the video card & using the onboard video with no result. The Bsod is still there. I even did a clean instal of windows, same result. :( Then I took the whole PC apart & put it all back with no success. The damn bsod is still there. What I have noticed is that the MB needs to start heating up for the computer to work. If i reset the pc or shut it down for short periods of time then the bsod is gone. If the damn thing gets cold then i get the bsod.
    So is this the motherboard acting up or is the CPU?
    Thanks for advance!

    Well they are 2 years old, and they are still under warranty.

    What exactly is your PSU?

    Also, what are the BSoD errors?

    The bsod errors are 0x0000009c and 0x00000124. The psu is Deluxe but I also tried with another psu and bsod's are still there.

    heh...this could be a software problem that comes when you try and install the CD/DVD drivers on and OS that isn't happy with them.
    altough i do not know what Windows you have installed, i would recommend ANOTHER reinstall, but this time get the drivers from the manufacturers website
    http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=ka4Zc9Wj4y1RINc4&templete=2
    and maybe try another OS, altough i am not sure about the results, BSODs always have that little mistery in them that makes an Hardware GURU go nuts...

    Its Windows 7 x64 and is worked just fine until one morning. When I woke up and turn the PC on the BSod start apearing. Well I think that I'm going to RMA the MB and hopefully fix the problem :)

    Sounds like it may be the PSU. Also, those aren't really BSoD errors. BSoD errors come in this form:
    PAGE_FILE_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    So i found out who is to blame for this bsods. Its the CPU. I went to a friend who has a am2 board and CPU. When I used my CPU in his motherboard the the bsods where still there but when I used his cpu in my MB it was running without a problem.
    Thank you all for the help.
