I've had an P8P67 Pro motherboard since April. All was well until the beginning of December. At that time I decided to get a Corsair 500R case, leaving behind my Silverstone FT02. When I put the motherboard in the case this problem started. The power button on the case will not turn on the computer. I have to flip the switch on my Corsair AX850 PSU to off. Once it's off the power button LED will quickly flash. Then I flip the switch back on, press power and the machine comes on. Every time it does this I get to the screen saying "Press F1 to recover BIOS". I do that, save settings, and continue to Windows log in screen.

Once the machine is on it is fine. It will stay on until I turn it off. Once it's shutdown though and after a span of approximately 3 minutes the machine is computer is unresponsive to the power button on my case. Anytime I press power within 3 minutes of a previous shutdown the machine will come on as usual.

During this journey I have purchased a new AX850 PSU. Same problem. I am on my 2nd Corsair 500R. Same problem. So this tells me that something is going on with the motherboard and not those two items. What am I to do here? Is the BIOS not retaining settings or something after 3 minutes thus not causing the machine to launch from a cold boot? I also upgraded the BIOS to the latest version.

I would really appreciate some help on this. I am about out of options and don't know what's going on. A RMA is the last action I want to take. It's just very frustrating sitting here with thousands of dollars worth of computer equipment that will not work properly.

So you've tried two PSUs two cases with the obvious plug and unplug of power, mount and unmount of mobo and you have the 8 pin CPU power attached right? Are you using the mobo stand off for your jumper connections and are you positive you have reset and pwr jumpers in the right place (see manual)?
try flipping the case pwr jumper 180 degrees if that doesn't work try removing mobo from case and place on your work bench as per usual take all precautions but set system up completely on your bench and see if all functions well on the out of the case. This sounds like a dead short to me possibly a stand off in the wrong place shorting out the mobo or a rear i/o shield not properly aligned. If using the on board on/off switch while on the bench it still doesn't work like it should I would RMA the motherboard.

yes but as i read the better are the corsair with channel well components

Hi everybody,
I'm sorry if my post doesn't belong to this thread, but I'm probably in the right spot anyway.
I have some questions concerning the Asus p8z68-v pro gen 3.
Since I was an Asus p8z68-v mad.gif and I'll get this new model g3 as replacement because of all sort of issues (no post, no bios led, vga red blink among other failures), I'm wondering:

1. After some BIOS updating I was unable to get working the turbo feature functionality on my old mothercard (again:p8z68-v) which just disappear of the ASSus software interface. Is it working fine on this motherboard? I'm not an overclocker but sometimes I like to taste some improvements, especially while gaming.

2. I've noticed that I'll get two extra SATA 6 internal ports controlled by Marvell. I wanna do a clean installation of Win7 so I've bought my first SSD. Should I hook my SSD to these ports or to the Intel ones? I've even downloaded the manual already and it doesn't seem clear to me in this point. What I suppose to understand it's the fact that the motherboard support SATA 6GB INTEL so the Marvell are just additional, as if I want to install an extra SATA PCI on my mobo. Is that right?

3. A reason to purchase the z68 model was that wonderful Lucid functionality which just worked in the mind of some Asus Add department, not mine. I tried hard to get going either the software (LucidVirtu itself or some games and so on) or the hardware but it felt as the BIOS never got the right instructions (of course I change the BIOS settings, if you wonder). I'm running SLI so I have to conclude that LucidVirtu works but not under SLI configurations whatsover. You've got to choice wisely before purchasing a second graphic card. Asus, of course, will never warning about this fact. My question: how will I get the Lucid Virtu working on SLI on the Asus p8z68-V pro gen? Still impossible?

Thank you!

If this does not help, have you tried to change the cmos battery? You should also try using only two RAM sticks..

No I have not tried shorting the pins. Guess I'll try 2 sticks of RAM as well.

Yes I have the 8-pin power connected. The machine will come on, I just have to flip the switch on the PSU from off/on. When it's off the light on the power button will flash quickly. That's my clue that I've picked up that it will come on once the switch is flipped back on, and sure enough it does. It's like it gets power or a charge of some kind once I flip the PSU off (how else would the light flash quickly on the power button?) which lets it come on as usual when the switch is flipped back to on on my PSU. It also asks me to press F1 when it does come back on to go into the BIOS and recover settings or whatever. Every time.

I also don't have a work bench :/

I say try the IRST first. It's less hassle than copying files back & forth between a HDD and SSD manually.

Thanks for the encouragement. I think I'm going to try the IRST. From all the different posts I've read (here and elsewhere) it seems to work well. I've got a 60gig SSD coming and I'll pair it with a 800gig seagate I have. I can then attach my other hard drives and use them for storage of files I don't use but once in a great while (like a terabyte of movie files...lol...).

Thanks, that's what I thought. So how does one get the 16x blue slot to work with a graphics card? This is really bugging me that it works in one slot but not the other. I want to upgrade my graphics card but if it won't run in the higher 16x slot, why waste the $$? Shouldn't both slots work with any graphics card?

Also, thanks for the signature code. I feel so official now...lol...thumb.gif

You can set it up sitting on a cardboard box or cardboard sheet on a table, just basic isolation. People do this. Not necessarily a proper "test bench". It's just to test whether lack of isolation is the prob.

You say it does not work in the upper blue x16 slot? If so, you have a faulty motherboard or graphics card. You have a low-end LE board, but still the upper blue slot should be x16 and work as normal..

What! They ran perfectly fine at 1600 9-9-9-24 with the 2001 (beta?) bios.

Hmm...

Edit: Flashed back to the 2001 bios, now everything is back to normal again. RAM is running at 1600. Luckily it was possible to flash back again.

Just goes to show that If it ain't broken, do not attempt to fix it.

You just hit on another question I had....Mine is doing the same thing, although I never did get it to run at the 1600 (except turbo mode). I even changed it in the bios and it refuses to run at 1600, only 1333. But, if I put the bios in turbo mode it will run at 1600. I have the newest bios firmware too. I'm also using the Corsair Vengeance, only difference is 4x2 (8gigs total). So is this just a feature of the RAM itself (XMP) that it will run at 1600 in turbo and run in 1333 when in standard running mode?
