Red CPU Warning light on MoBo after install of Corsair H100

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

I just put my old system into my new Corsair 600T White case, with my new Corsair H100 attached to my LGA775 Q9550 last night, and when I went to turn the guy back on, it powered on for about 10 seconds, a red light came on near the CPU_FAN plug and then powered off. I am running a EVGA 780i motherboard, and from what I am reading this means that my processor is heating up and throwing an error almost instantly...

So, I made sure the fans and pump were working on the H100, all good there.
Then I re-seated the CPU twice to no avail.
I checked over all of my wiring making sure everything was plugged in and it all seems to be correct.

The only thing i can think of is that i messed up one of the pins in the 775 socket...

So here is a pic and I need help!

Can anyone tell if i bent or broke a pin?

I really need some help troubleshooting this one, I am at a loss...

Have you attached any fan in the CPU_FAN header? There is an option which you can disable in the BIOS so that it won't show a warning when you don't have a CPU_FAN. What thermal paste did you apply and by which method?

Yes, I plugged it into the CPU_FAN header, there was also a Molex that needed to be plugged in as well.
I tried booting with the CPU_FAN header plugged in, unplugged, and I even plugged in my previous cooler's fan pins just to see if it will boot.

My problem is that I cant get into the bios for long enough to change anything before the light goes off and shuts my computer off mad.gif

I'm using the thermal paste that was on the H100, pre-pasted you might say.

The wierd thing is that it is shutting the computer down automatically withing 10 seconds

Could you check you didn't miss anything out while assembling? Also try clearing the CMOS.

I cleared the cmos using the jumper a few times
I removed the battery a few times
i unplugged the whole thing a few times

im pretty sure i didnt forget anything, i even watched online tutorials to verify.

I cannot see any pin damage.

I am also thinking this is a power supply issue. Check proper fit on the EPS and 24 pin connector.

What power supply are you using?

Yep, made sure that was connected and that all wires were seated properly in the housing.

This problem just doesn't make sense unless i somehow fried the CPU or bent a pin.

Im using the Tt 700w modular PS, but the only hardware I changed in this build was the case and the CPU cooler, so i dont think this is a PS issue.
