My computer will not post. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the cpu or the motherboard. I've been reading really bad things about MSIs rma service and I'm worried they're going to send me back a used board with scratches and dings and stuff like that. I'm also not looking forward to waiting a month. Should I rma my intel cpu first? I've heard good things about intel.

I overclocked my memory and now it wont post. Clearing cmos did not work. Dual bios did not work. That's why I think it's the cpu or the motherboard. I know it's rare for cpus to fail but about a week before my system failed I remember getting way lower benchmark scores on my cpu without changing settings. But nothing is burnt or busted on my motherboard everything looks fine. I have 4 ram sticks and I tried to boot with only 1 installed and couldnt get it do anything no matter which stick and no matter which slot.
