Anyone else have this problem? My electrical outlet is properly grounded and I've even tried running a ground from the case but to no avail.

Sounds like something is shorting out to me... I would probably break down the build, and re-do it. The motherboard standoffs are installed correctly? It's possible that you have one in the wrong spot and is shorting out on the back of the motherboard. If not that, then possibly one of the wires from the powersupply has stripped/torn/cracked insulation..

This would bother me. alot. I hope you get this sorted out soon.

I'd be happy if they just release a windowed side panel. biggrin.gif More steel will just make the case heavier than it is already. The rig's fairly difficult to bring to LAN parties as it is, even with my custom-made dolly. Lol.

Anyway, going to take apart the hot-swap bays tomorrow, and rewire everything again (for the 2342342344th time). Any tips or things I should know about before I proceed? thinking.gif

go to 19 minutes... that's the plan I have for my motherboard.....Just water cool the snot out of it... yes even dual RAM cooling blocks eventually....lots of tubing I know but would look neat in my mind. might even use white coolant to help make my UV green helix real;y stand out and ooze throughout the coolant.

Arizona and other dry arid climates are notoriously bad for static, especially when the wind blows.

Some probable causes:
You have an not grounded house. A good power strip is a good solution. One with a protected/ not protected light.

Extra Motherboard standoff is poking up into the back of the motherboard. Only solution is to dissemble your system and remove.

Modular PSU (if used) power from the Modular is not secure and arcing to the MOBO. Check all cables and orientation (SATA cable forced etc...).

Some less likely causes
Your comp is on a dirt floor. Solution, Drive a metal tent stake into the ground and run a metal wire from the back panel of your case and spool the other end of wire into the exposed tent stake. This situation is rare, but it has happened to me in the field when I was in the ARMY.



Only 7mm for an h100?
Okay, put the top set of fans in the top bezel of the case, attach h100 directly to the case (inside), add bottom fans to the exposed underside of h100.

Okay, put the top set of fans in the top bezel of the case, attach h100 directly to the case (inside), add bottom fans to the exposed underside of h100"

You can't mount the fans underneath the h100 rad with a standard z77 board and a standard 8pin cpu power connector. There REALLY is less than 7mm is clearance between the fan frame and the 8pin cpu connector on the mobo. Thus, you'd need to grind the plastic casing of the 8pin cable down so that the 8 wires can further bend to fit into that 7mm gap.

I just want to make it clear, I don't have any pull fans on the H100.

Only 2 fans are installed for pushing purposes. Both are under the rad, which is attached under the top bezel as you would call it.

Of course, if I were to get 2 more fans to pull air out of the rad, I would attach them on top of the bezel.

But it's just a joke that you can't use pushing fans for the H100 (at least ones without grooves in the frames) if you're on a z77 board.

If you were to use pushing fans on the H100 (at least with my z77 board, which AFAIK has standard 8pin cpu connector placement), then you would need to mount the frames of the fan next to the 8pin connector to create more clearance or modify a 8pin connector cable itself.

Very Nice,

 

Question for you.  I have a similar Res as you however I do not know how you mounted your Res on the side of the HD cage.  What did you do?  It looks like you add a steel plate attached to the HD cage and the Res is installed on the plate but I cant tell. Can you give me a bit more detail (as well as pictures) on what you did?

 

 

Also I have three 120 fans that I am installing on the top however the third fan just under the power controller the mounting holes on the fan does not seem to match up correctly with the frame?  Did you have to dermal a bit to get the holes to match up?

 

 

Thanks

@ bob808 and @somonehastaken
Standoffs were one of the things I checked first. The PSU is relatively new but did not see any cracks when I checked it. Plan on checking the ground from the outside breaker box when I get home this afternoon. I puchased a decent UPS system today hoping that helps, been putting that purchase off way too long anyway.

Although I live in the desert, I got rid of the dirt floor about 20 years ago biggrin.gif

Thanks for the suggestions.

Try moving the rad around like spinning it for example and putting it else where...just trying to think
post #1620 of 6036
UPS seems to have fixed the problem but too soon to tell for sure. Still get shocked if i walk across the room and touch the computer, but it hasn't caused a restart or Shut down yet. keeping my fingers crossed.
