New 3D rendering build boot issues

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello Friends,

So I finally got all my parts in yesterday and today for a monster rig I'm building. I put everything together and I'm sure all my connections are correct and set in place. When I plugged it in and powered it up I got a quick led flash on the front face, the psu blue led turned on and the fan spun and continued spinning, the cpu fan spun but stopped, and the motherboard led indicator light turned on and stayed a constant green. However, nothing happened after that, not post no beeps no nothing. I'm not sure what the problem is except maybe the ram I have isn't compatible or isn't installed correctly. Any help?

Motherboard: ASUS kgpe-d16 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131643

CPU: AMD 6134 8-core http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819105265

PSU: Rosewill 1000W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182188

RAM: Kingston 6GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820139043

NOTE: I do have other components that I haven't listed but will describe them if needed.

THANKS!

CPU power connector plugged in properly?

In addition, your "triple channel" RAM will not run triple channel, it will run single channel, bottlenecking your 8 cores (or more) and ability to 3D render.

Hey xd thanks for the reply. Now I am by no means a beginner but I am not sure I understand what you are referring to when you say "cpu power connector" when it comes to my setup. Also, what do you suggest I do to fix the bottleneck-ing issue?

are you running 1 cpu or 2. also how much ram to you have (6gb for each cpu?)

as far as the ram is concerned they work in pairs (Dual Channel) because of the mobo/IMC. You will run single channel because you have 2x2gb and a 1 gb which sets everything to single channel

Hi, I'm running only 1 cpu and I have 6gb for that cpu.

I see what you mean about the ram. So by that logic, would I be able to use only 2 of the 3 sticks and fix that issue?

I know with the old Acer servers the machine wouldn't boot, power on etc if your RAM wasn't in certain slots for each CPU. I'd check the manual. Or even a quick google for the configuration.

Hey hellboy and selectstriker, thanks for the replies. It seems like you guys coordinated your answers because they seem to work with each other lol. The manual does talk about the order with which the sticks need to be installed, and I made sure I followed the order (A2 and C2). Still no luck. Another question that just popped up: do I need to install the specific sticks in any special order? Basically, is there a stick 1, stick 2, and stick 3 designation?
