Hey guys.

Just bought

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
Intel Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge
Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz (2x4)

Put it all together and booted up, it worked fine or 5 min, but after a spontan reboot it just wount boot and the red cpu light on the asus mb is red all the time.

I tryed another psu and it works, cleared cmos, removing cpu and reinstaling it, i tryed taking all ram and hd so its only the mb and cpu but still red light.

Running out of things to try.

So anybody got any idears or would you say its a foulty mb or cpu?

The fans start spinning when i boot up so im thinking the cpu is broke??
