Do you have a digital multimeter to test your CMOS battery's voltage? It should read ~ 3V. If it's significantly lower than ~2.5V, replace it.

Good luck. thumb.gif

Just popped it out and measured it, got a strong 3.12 V...back to the drawing board.

I had a problem with no post when I got mine. Heatsinks was too tight. May be a shot in the dark

Chemykal, I would next look at the power supply and/or the cables connected to your motherboard. As The Sandman noted a few posts up, he had come across a similar issue to yours in the Crosshair IV Club; perhaps you can test the theory and do away with the extension cables you have hooked up and plug your PSU cables (I'm assuming you used extensions for either the 8-pin EPS CPU power cable and/or the 24-pin ATX power cable) directly into the board.

Side question: How old is your PSU?

Good luck.

Good luck.
Removing the cable extensions is on my to-do list, I haven't had time to take it apart and un-do my wiring lately, as I'm in the process or searching for an apartment to move into 11 hours away for a new job; hoping that removing the extensions will work out.

As for the age of the power supply, I purchased it new when I built this last December, so it's been in use for roughly 6 months.
