Herm...that's odd.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I've had my computer for roughly 2 years or so now with almost no problems at all. But for some reason I've noticed it started idling at 40+c for the past month or so. Thinking it was the pump going bad on the H50, I tried a brand new one.

However, things are still the same. To make matters worse once I have my setup in my case and try booting it, it FF's on me. Once I take it out and lay it flat it works fine.

Before anyone suggests that I don't know how to install a motherboard to a case, I guarantee you I've done it countless times before for myself and others and am 90% sure I'm not derping.

Did the whole take out, put back in thing roughly 3 times today with the same results...

make sure the standoffs are in the correct locations
check for lose screws, washers ect..
make sure the front panel connectors are in correctly
usb(black) and firewire(blue) headers are keyed the same, make sure your not using 1934 as usb

did you turn the oc dial?
big nono on msi boards, looks like it has 4+1 power with heatsink

#1 check

Not oc'ed running stock to make sure I'm not derping.
Thanks for helping though.
Might be something else but at the moment I have no clue at all haha

Maybe try loosening the screws securing the mobo to the standoffs a little bit, when I first start pulling computers apart I remember I over tightened the screws and the system would not boot but once backed them off a bit it worked. Good luck
