what else can I try?

Is the Num lock key working (toggle on/off)?

If it is check the GPU is seated properly. Which VGA output are you using?

I already removed my graphics card. now connected to the board's HDMI port. no response from numlock either.

Can someone explain when using the 3 easy step to overclock if I lower the vcore from the auto voltage of 1.352 that cpu-z reads I get a bit lower temps when I manually lower the vcore to 1.300v. I have looked around that people at 4.6ghz have a lower VID than 1.3961v which I show in CoreTemp. Do I have to manually O.C. to test the lowest voltage I can run 4.6ghz or can I keep lowering the voltage even though its an auto O.C.? Thanks!

make sure gpu is firmly seated and connected its power cable.

Black snow..sorry to hear of your troubles... it may just be one of the components..ram /mobo / cpu..etc.. are defective.. thats the potential issue of building our own.. we sometimes go into rabbit holes..that can be exhausting and deep.. its not personal or luck..it just is what it is!

dja2k - there is no super simple guaranteed easy mode OC process...even using Rhialto's simple 3 stepper... may require additional tweaking, testing, triage, research etc..

On the first post of this thread.. there is a link to Aja's fairly simple OC method using the Offset vcore stuff this board offers... maybe some trial and effort with that would be good...

I have largely used the simple 3 step myself..but only went to 4.2, plus added the additional stuff to enable step down on frequency and vcore..
I could probably get more out of this..but its stable and cool, and fast now.. so..Im less inclined to start over. I mean the difference between 4.2 turbo and 4.6 turbo in the games i play... is negligible if any....so... im inclined to just enjoy where Im at.

You just made up my mind for me, thanks :)

Never posted my build before I liquid cooled it, so might as well just post it finalized now biggrin.gif

Sleeving is MDPC-X. Blocks are all EK. Rads are Black Ice/XSPC. The specs are mostly in my Rigbuilder (actually click the link, it doesn't seem to update changes in the signature). thumb.gif

I'm having error 34 issues as well frown.gif

After originally running into this issue, I actually returned/exchanged my first gene-z (for a gen3 model, which arrived today, but when I installed my i5-2500k and ram into the new board, I get the same error 34 with no video output.

I'm using the onboard HDI video, so no discrete graphics card, and I'm trying to boot with nothing more than CPU/cooler and one stick of RAM. I've tried several different sticks of memory in several different motherboard slots.

I've tried all of the troubleshooting steps listed in the ROG forums (clear CMOS, etc...)

At this point... I guess bad CPU? But when has anyone ever gotten a "bad" CPU? I'm past my 30 day return window for the CPU from Microcenter, but I guess I'll swing by tomorrow and see if they can help me out (or at least bench test the thing for me)

Does anyone have any other ideas? This is BEYOND frustrating. I've been waiting a month to get this build of the ground!
