Sixor-you have to set DVID + offset for your voltage to drop during idle.

I followed that advice about taking the board out and putting it on the box. On a whim, I used my old power switch to trigger the board to turn on.

It worked! I am not sure what to do with the new switch I bought from Mountain Mods - their instructions were atrocious - nothing but a single small piece of paper with a circle indicating the switch, and the pins numbered 1 - 4 with a + and - in the middle - no explanation of how to actually wire the thing up. There's a dark line between 1 and 3 (top left to right bottom) and a dotted line between 2 and 4 (bottom left to right top)

I assume the + and - drive the LED backlight...

Anyway, it was shorting out my board, and it corrupted the bios. The board repaired itself and is working now.

When I bought the switch, it didn't even come with a wire - I had to buy that separately...

Since I really still have no idea how the heck to wire that thing up, I am just using my old switch. That's one of the things I really don't like about Mountain Mods. I get the impression they figure everyone is an electrical engineer. Heck, even my co-worker who does a lot of this kind of thing couldn't make heads or tails out of the diagram, so what chance did I have?

At least I was able to figure out how to put my case together, even though it didn't come with instructions either. I figured it out by looking at the picture on their site.

Anyway - I plan to finish all of this up this weekend. Thanks for your help!

Hey guys, just picked up a UD5H WB to pair with my dad's 2500K. Everything works fine and holy crap the boot up is fast. I'm wondering if this is a case of "if it ain't broke don't fix it" or if I should update to the latest bios?
post #2088 of 6656
hows the new F9C bios holding up for overcloking ? anybody tried it yet ? ( for the UD5H )

I will take a picture - and yes I knew it had a power switch - but I am glad I tested it because even if I RMAed the board I would've had the same issue with the new one.

OH FFS. I just looked at the switch itself again... it's a Latching switch, not a momentary switch.

DUH. That's why! They put the little disclaimer at the very bottom of the description and I didn't even see it till now. I think someone needs to really go over the product pages over there and make them clearer. Maybe BOLD that text or something to make it more noticable. Jeez! Web designers, they are not.

I wanted red, so I picked this one...
http://www.mountainmods.com/illuminated-antivandal-switch-redblack-latching-p-687.html

My husband has been super anal about anything other than red lights - apparently the blue spectrum causes all kinds of health problems - cancer, etc. If I have anything other than a red LED anywhere, he immediately puts black electrical tape over it. (sigh)... the things I deal with.
