Hello Everyone, I just got my Asus Sabertooth 990fx in and installed it this afternoon but have been running into a strange problem that I'm hoping you guys have some sort of insight. I have paired this motherboard with
AMD 960T Black Edition
2x4 corsair vengeance 1.5
5830 ATI HD PCi-E
1Tb Hitachi HD
OCZ GameXstream 700 watt
1 Creative Labs ExtremeMusic

I am having a boot error somewhere as i have narrowed it down to the Graphics card slot. When i plug in the ATI 5830 dual power cables (Requires two pci-e power cables) and hit the power button i just get a flicker from all the fans but nothing turns on. If i unhook the power from the graphics card but leave it plugged into the PCI-e socket it boots but no video and it seems as though it is actually getting into the bios but can't be sure but system stays on until i manually turn it off. I have tried different graphics cards and get mixed results such as no boot with an 7900gt or the same flicker but nothing else. I have tried loosening the board thinking it might be shorting out somewhere but no joy. I installed an Ultra 120 cpu cooler but i don't think i damaged the cpu screwing in the spring bolts. Any ideas would sure help me out. Thanks

I take it you have the EATX 12v 8 pin power plug in. Can you try another PSU it sounds like you don't have enough amps on the 12v rail I think the 5830 requires 35/40amps on the 12v line. Also the board might not be getting the correct power good signal from the PSU in which case the CPU controller chip will constantly reset and prevent the system from booting it's a safeguard to prevent damage from wrong voltage.

hey guys, i need a little help/info/recomendations.
i have a 960T unlocked to 6 cores running at 3.4-stable. i want to push it more, but i want to get a good nb oc first.
everything else is pretty much stock. (bios ver. 0705, i had 0813, but didnt seen as stable)
my problem is i cant oc my NB.
i tried 2400 with 1.275 cpu-nb volts and she dont post.
should i try to oc the nb before the cpu?
could the unlocked cores causing the problem? i didnt try with 4 cores.
i have 4 days off and i am going to get this system the fastest/stable as possible.

ether go back to 402 bios or 813/910 the 705 is poo! at least for OC'ing

Plus you are able to push the cpu/nb volts to 1.45 safely just watch temps always at first. 1.275 would be nice at higher cpu/nb speeds but some chips need more volts just FYI

I will post more later if you need help, I have to do some work on networking stuff around here so won't be able to jump right back here quick, but will check in on your posts asap
if you are still having a problem!

BUT FIRST get rid of the 705 bios, it really only worked well for a few people, but most agree it sucked!

Just changed the Power supply for my old but faithful OCZ 520SLI that has adjustable 12v rails. did not need to increase 12v line but it booted finally and all is well. I don't know what is wrong with my OCZ 700 GameXstream since this was the power supply used with my overclocked opty165 on my DFI Lanparty that was running just yesterday. weird but at least i can boot into the bios and all seems well. Now to see if the extra cores unlock any advice on that??biggrin.gif Pics to follow as i also painted the case black just for this board thumb.gif

thanks for the info.
so here is what i did-
set defaults in bios-then flashed to 0813-booted.
went into bios and turned off/ on the normal stuff-booted.
unlocked cores, stock nb-booted and stable.
tried 2400 nb, cpu-nb 1.3 volts-no post.
upped the cpu and ram volts-no post.
reset nb to auto, rest volts to default, 6 cores-booted.
i tried the same processes witout the 2 unlocked cores-same thing.

hold my beer, im gonna try something!!!
i'll be back-lol

I love the look of those MSI cards, I am water cooled with the Koolance Full Blocks so I don't have such a shabby looking system ether but if I was to air cool one that how I would want it to look! NICE!!!!!

I can't be trusted with a beer at this point!!! I have been in hell (installing Ubuntu, Linux Mint, ETC...) and if you have it installed yourself on THIS BOARD you know that it is a pain in the rear!!!

I have been trying for days to get it working even 75% right with clumps of hair and lots of yelling and even a few threats to it and it still won't work right!

Just tried what was expecting to be the easiest Linux to install as it has every Driver/Kernel in it PcLinuxOS and will tell you the only thing it did better so far was crash oh and the network worked right from the CD
without any patches! So I got to surf the forum for 2 min before it crashed/locked up

I took this pic about 3/4 of the way into my rebuild. I eventually mounted a Corsair H60 onto the CPU.

Edit: #1600! Woot.
