No post with first startup. Using a Big Bang Marshall

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I finished my build today, consisting of:

- MSI Big Bang Marshall (B3)
- Core I7 2600K
- 2 MSI Twinfrozer III 6950's with 2GB (going to flash to 6970's)
- 120GB SSD OCZ Vertex 3
- 8 GB Ram
- Corsair A1200X Gold PSU

This is the problem I encounter at my first start-up:
Power goes on, fans blowing, and then in 20 seconds it turns off and on again, forever to repeat itself.
I have got a MSI P67 Big Bang Marshall, so I looked on the debug LED, which shows the error code 3B.
That means that it is a initial South Bridge Check fail.
Does that mean it is a death motherboard?
Or is there something else to fix it?

Maybe some of you can help better if you read this post on the MSI forums of a guy with the same problem (Well, not really, his pc worked for a given time) :

I'm not quite sure about any other cause, but the Vertex 3's v2.06 firmware causes booting and startup problems sometimes.

But could that be the reason for the constant restarts at first boot? Could try it, though! Will post here after trying.

*Edit: Did not help anything. Tried it without power to SSD, no change.
