i just bought and put together a new computer

Asus P8H61-M LE/CSM motherboard Intel I5-2500K 3.3Ghz Socket 1155 Processor Kingston DDR3 1333 4GB sata dvd sata hard drive

using the built in INtel HD Graphics 3000 and it seemed to be working ok

get a crash in world of warcraft. a hard crash, no wow errors or windows errors just weird pattern on screen and repeating sound so i have to reset computer

i set bios to default and it seemed to fix it but it still crashes just not as often as when set to Asus Optimal in bios

downloaded 3d mark vantage and i got the same crash when running that

so i guess it is a hardware problem? or i have to set something in bios? disable power saving?

dxdiag says directx11 but when i tried to run 3dmark 11 it says no dx11 hardware found... though wow does run in dx11 mode... the crash hap

Based on the symptoms you described, there’s a few things you need to do and check.

  1. Make sure that the supplementary power-cable for your video adapter (probably a standard molex connector) is plugged into the motherboard.

  2. Run a memory testing utility to check your RAM for problems. (Windows 7 has one built-in.)

    1. Use a temperature monitoring utility to check your system, CPU, and graphics adapter temperatures.

    2. Make sure that your system has sufficient air-flow through it to keep things (especially the CPU and motherboard chipsets) cool. Clean out any dust that has clogged up the heat sinks.

  3. Observe results and compare. Report back for further help.

DirectX shows DX11 because that's the software you have installed. That has no bearing on the actual support of your hardware for it (it doesn't support it).

That said, this could potentially be a problem with the graphics hardware, yes. If this is a clean installation and a brand new motherboard, I'd just RMA the motherboard and see if another works better.

the graphics hardware is on the cpu in this case i believe... hard to know where the problem lies... –  rakkarage May 5 '11 at 2:50
    
I'd still start with the motherboard, just due to the incredibly low failure rate of Intel processors. –  Shinrai May 5 '11 at 14:15
