i had the same problem it turned out to be a bent pin on motherboard moved pin inline and it works great
thanks for responding. I checked all the pins and they were all good.
I managed to solve my problem - I noticed that one of the power cables were not connected on the board ( 8-pin ).
Please let us know if you find a solution! We've been wrangling with the very same issue over here:
I too have:
Processor: Intel Gulftown i7-970
Motherboard: Intel DX58SO2
I was a newbie - I didnt have one of the power cables plugged in on the board close to the CPU. Everything worked fine after I plugged it in and it's still up and running now. Never had problems ever since.
