Nice move there, with the Red/Black mixing of Corsair Vengeance

Be sure to post pictures of your finished build

Wow, the packaging of the Corsair Hydro50 heatsink is far larger than the GENEZ itself!
My components are underway somewhere on the Autobahn.

Hi all,

I just changed my build to 2500K, gene-z, and Gskill 2133 (cas 11) 2x4G RAM (F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL) with my old windows 7 32bit on existing intel SSD, which was running on 2140E and ASUS P5B.

On the first start, it was so fast that I didn't see the post screen or get any chance to enter the BIOS. But after the win7 logo, it crashed with blue screen, which was also so fast before I can see any word on the screen, and it rebooted with the same story.

I unplugged the power cord and re-started it, now it says OC failed, press F1 to enter BOIS. I didn't really change much there except for the boot priority, and then it keep rebooting with POST failure, no chance to get into the BOIS. What could be wrong and what should I do? Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I was curious as to how this would look when I decided to order it in this combination. It does match the board color scheme, and it is different than most would chose. Besides, I saved ten bucks buying it this way!

I considered all black since the M4GZ PCB is so dark and the heatsinks around the CPU area are black, too. Add in the black Corsair H60 and all black Vengence would have been an easy choice. But I have an extra "ten spot" in my pocket this way and my build is different than any other that I have seen so far - I'm happy with it.

A couple of things here.. Use that memok! button on the mobo. I don't know if it likes the speed of that RAM. With higher speed comes higher latencies. Also, you probably know this but with windows 7 32-bit, your operating system will only recognize something like 3.87GB of ram. If you want to utilize all that you have, upgrade to a 64bit OS.

Thanks, will try it out tonight. Does clearing the CMOS help?
Yeah, planning to upgrade to 64 bit later on, still cannot make the decision to re-install all the programs again, it will take a long time..

My guess is that you will have to reinstall everything anyways. Operating systems don't seem to like to boot on drives from old systems from my experiences. It's one thing if you change a gpu or something, but when you change a motherboard, you are essentially using a brand new computer with all kinds of different drivers for all kinds of different hardware. Best of luck to you though!biggrin.gif

Edit: Clearing the CMOS probably won't do much as the board is brand new. But you can definitely give it a shot.

Wosch, yes, the packaging for the Corsair H60 is pretty big, but so is the H60!

This is my first CPU water cooler. Also, the first where I had to install a support plate to the backside of the motherboard for a CPU heatsink.

In addition to the H20 CPU cooler, I'm going to have lots of other first with this build. First mATX; first unlocked processor; first SSD; first 64bit OS, etc.

(...can't find my heatsink thermal compound)

Doesn't the H60 come with some really good shin-etsu pre-applied?
Unless you have some ic diamond or something, I would just use what came on there.
