Is doing basically the same thing as it did with the other completely dodgy board...

Ill have a look at those boards now...

Edit: Holy crap thats expensive... Over $250 here in NZ... Compared the board being used now which cost $80... Anything cheaper?

Okay, probably not a driver issue then. That sucks.

Series of long beeps means the motherboard doesn't like the RAM you have in it. (usually). Be sure its seated properly as well, improper seating can cause the beeps you describe.

Not sure if troll or just stupid.


Run a PSU calculator website see what it says for his build $100 says well below 500W.

I hate it when people throw out the PSU line. I've been using a 430W Antec PSU in one of my systems for 3 years with various different graphics cards, absolutely zero issues.

And onto the problem at hand. I didn't get time to read every post, but I did read you ruled out the PSU. To be sure, the easiest way to find out is to put in another substitute PSU. I recently helped my friend build a new rig, and he was plagued with similar issues for about 2 weeks. Random blue screens and other stuff not working properly at random times. It turned out to be the PSU which we found out by substituting in an old 250W PSU lol.

Edit: Just read you fixed the problem by replacing the m/b. Well done

No offense but sometimes PSU is not enough to handle real world builds. It's one thing to say that you've run the 430w with various Graphics cards but your statement lacks.

What MoBo?
What CPU?
What Graphics Card? Everything one Max?
Running a RAID setup?

I can tell you for an absolute fact that my system would NEVER in a million years be powered by a 430w PSU. In fact it wouldn't POST with a 500w PSU. I'm not saying you're wrong(because it's your personal experience) but saying so without all the facts is wrong. Must give information.

In the case of the OP his PSU should run the setup, but 500w is a little lean for a 5770. Still, it should work.

This one appears to be a decent board. I'm not sure how much $154.00 NZ equates to US currency but this board is only $105.00 in US currency at the egg. Is time of the essence here and does the system have to be built like yesterday or do you have a few weeks to get a good deal on a board. Some one may be able to ship you a board from the states if this is leagal but then you don't have the instant return to the store option if/when you run into any snags .

This board appears to have a true 8+2 power phase circuitry but no heat sinks on the mossfets Since you are only running the CPU at stock settings this should not be an issue and you can always add the stick on Heat sinks if you ever suspect heat on the mosfets as a heat related issue.

Another thing to keep in mind is to disable any unused onboard features in the bios to reduce the stress on the board. If you have onboard video and you are using an expantion video card then disable the video in the bios. If you are not using both network adaptors if it has two then disable the one you are not using. same for 1394 firewire etc etc and get the mobo's features all set up how you want to use it prior to installing your OS this way you will be sure to only install drivers that are going to be required for the hardware you intend to use and no drivers for any hardware that is or will be disabled

Trust me your system will thank you for this extra little attention to detail.

That Asus in NZ is a little expensive (around 200 ish) and has features I know wont be used... If at all possible Id like to keep with Gigabyte since then I can return the current one...

I was looking at these two:
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3833#ov
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3475#sp

Both are 4+1 phase, the first one is much cheaper and comparing the two the only differences I could find was that the more expensive one has 4 ram slots (which I dont need).

Im hoping to get this done this weekend as its a long weekend and we have a Lan on...

Go with the 2nd one.

It's Hybrid XFire capable.

I know you don't think that all 4 slots will be used but it leaves some room to improve the system without having to get a new board. I used to think that having 8 Gigs of RAM was a dream. Now with 2x4GB kits going for so cheap it's really nice to have the ability to increase Read/Write times for even the most basic of applications and games.
