Ohk here is the problem:

My games are sputtering and crashing to no signal on multiple set ups and gpu's

I suspect it is the 990fx chip set. Reason is i tried an asus m5a990fx revision 2 pro(that was replaced 3 times) and an evo
With the old parts new parts and two diffrent versions of windows. Diffrent drivers etc. But the catch is my cpu was missing a grounder pin, could that have damaged it. um then why is the other motherboard i put my gpu on it sorta does the same thing. Then when i put a diffrent cpu on my board it won't crash but still exhibit issues.

Could be many things. Missing CPU pin is one thing you may have resolve. Other things like a weak/cheap power supply, incompatibel RAM, bad hard drive, poor grounding on the case, even a bad case fan can cause issues..

I have an ASUS 990FX Evo rev 1 running right now that was supposed to be bad when they first came out. Stable and running fine with an FX-8320, 32Gb of RAM and ATI 7700 GPU..

First off, using a single stick of RAM, single hard drive and a single GPU, reinstall windows. Issue may go away, then add bits piece by piece and see if you can recreate the fault...

Switched boards from the 990fx to the 990x and it worked for a bit on my 430 gt then it started again. This is insane no way can reinstaling windows three times on three diffrent 990fx boards and then a 990x on the original third install if windows. I confirmed the 990x board worked in another pc. Could it be my hot swap ports; i did read somewhere it might be causing the instability, but the damage? What would be damaging boards and parts, since this started i have replaced everything but one ssd and the tower...

My set up:
Everything is stock
Corsair carbide air 540
Phenom 2 1045t
Asus 990fx pro r2.0 motherboard
Gskill 1333 ddr3 ripjaws
Evga g2 550 gold
