need help with new amd build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
im building a budget rig for a friend of mine who does some light gaming and wanted to do an upgrade, soi told him i could build one for him because he was going to buy an hp pc anyways

here are the parts
corsair 600t
gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H
1090t
corsair 650w
radeon 5850
asus xonar dg

he opted for stock cooling because he didn't feel the need to spend the money on it, so i said ok.

i put the entire rig together and everything seemed to be going fine. i booted up and went into bios real quick to make sure temps were in check. the cpu temp was 45c which i figured was normal since my ambients are really high (no air conditioning).

i popped in the windows disc and after it finished installing i downloaded prime95 and hwmonitor, was watching the cpu temp. idle was 45-47c. seemed ok to me. so i put it on load and after a good half hour or so it was 68c with a high of 73c. i figured the temps were really good since my sig rig i7 950 @ 4.2ghz gets up to 80-85c easily with these summer ambients. but then again everything is running at stock for him so.

after a while everything shut off. i didn't know what happened so i turned it on again. then no video even after i heard the post beep. nothing at all, everything looks normal but i am not getting a video signal. except the cpu fan spins at 100% speed.. it is really loud.

thanks guys

Let the computer cool down overnight and try rebooting. If that doesn't work try using integrated graphics (if you're on dedicated) and see if you get an image. If it still doesn't work, i'd call AMD. Also, 73 maybe fine for some Intel CPU's, but it is not good for AMD's.

That temp is too high for an amd chip, try re seating the heatsink and apply some new thermal paste also if you can get into the bios check the stock voltage on my 955 it was at 1.4 stock which wasn't necessary at stock clocks so I turned it down and the temps went down quite a bit as a result for my 955 but that could be different on the 1090t. Maybe try clearing the c mos and see if your video signal comes back
