New build with GA-X58A-UD3R - phase leds on

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Rev. 2.0
Processor Intel I7-930 2.8 Ghrz
RAM DDR3 6GB 1333MHZ F3-10666CL9T-6GBNQ G.skill
NVIDIA GEFORCE 8400 GS 512MB DDR2
power 600W EXTREME POWER CoolerMaster
Kingston SSDNow V100 Series 64GB
SSD 160Gb SATA (o SATA2) 72000rpm <- i want to boot win 7 64 from this one
HDD SATA3 500GB 7200RPM WD5000AAKXWestern Digital *cache 16mb
Case HAF-912 black RC-912-KKN1CoolerMaster

I think i wired everything properly, but since im new to this, and this is my first attempt to build my pc, i guess i must have overlooked something.

The symptoms: My pc does turn on, so does the fans and front leds and dvd writer, but makes not a single noise and a few leds in the motherboard which are described as the Phase LEDs turn on: a group related to the ram, and other to the cpu. The cpu group has 1 green 3 yellow and two reds; the ram has one green followed by another yellow, then another green and another yellow. Also, there is no video signal.

I took a few shots, so you can have a better idea of how looks everything

NOTE: I didnt connected cables to this, since i understood it was optional, and im not trying to overclock the system soon, since my priority is too be able to use my pc to work, mainly with video and photos.

SATA0 = SSD ; SATA1 = DVD writer; GSATA 3 = HDD (i avoided the gigabyte satas, since i read they have caused trouble to other users)

I tried removing two of the three rams, but the leds kept saying things i couldnt understand (what do the mean?!)

The front panel cables. i read that the triangle in the cables = positive charge, so i place them that way.

I have the same problem, but i have that cable connected frown.gif
And what does the LED's mean ? i can't really find out since i think the manual is confusing..

So far if i look at the manual it's CPU Load LED's but i really don't know since as i said it is confusing.
