Any way to test 8-pin?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, my mobo shows an under voltage for the cpu and I dont know if its a faulty mobo or my 8 pin is not getting power. Is there any way to test the 8 pin?

Get yourself a multimeter and test the load, that or a static finder (little pen looking thing that lights up near electricity).

If the cpu is not getting power (like the 8 pin is removed) you would not be able to get to the bios, all you would get a is a black screen. maybe make sure your bios is set correctly/do a hard cmos reset via the jumper.
