Assembled computer, boots up for 4 seconds - Page 5

Yes. But they are not touching eachother when I use the power_sw cable from the case though.

@CPU question:

I would be surprised if a CPU overheats in like 3-4 seconds? I once placed my heatsink incorrectly which messed up the thermal paste but I still booted. The i7 2600k was at 50C idle and 90-100C when doing benchmarks but it would boot fine and only crash under high load (Bought new thermal paste and fixed it ofcourse)

Would I give the following thing a try (just to rule out power button is messed up):

make the power SW pins touch eachother so it boots and then pull them from eachother again? so it doesn't infinite reboot as an other user said

It's a long shot though..

Only connect things that you need, I had the same problem on a Corsair 800D. It would do a reboot loop because I was powering a hot swappable that wasn't being taken up. Unhook everything and hook it back together one by one verifying if you need it or not. It'll take time, but it might save you a lot of pain

If the switch is messing up, 1. bend the pins to straight position then 2. hot wire them (use screwdriver and touch the 2 pins together then release).

Ok guys, I've made some interesting progress

apparently, I never tried out the second ram stick in the first ram slot on it's own. It's booting fine now (haven't plugged in monitor but it doesn't shut off and goes past a beep even)

So, what I did next was to try it again with the first stick. Didn't boot. tried again with the second stick in first slot and the other stick in thirth slot. Didn't boot

It only boots with one of the two sticks, which leds me to believe the other stick is broken

I will try and install W7 next but I'm pretty sure it'll work since it doesn't reboot anymore. Oh well, I can use the pc now with 2GB ram and an extra stick isn't much $$. Sure as hell beats RMAing my motherboard

Before I leave you guys

Using core tempt, I got 32-35C idle and while I was installing the nvidia drivers it had a max of 49C. Is this normal? Just wondering.

(stock cooler ofc)

Seems about right temp for that cpu/frequency/cooler.

Glad you got it sorted.
