Paco, what are your system specs? Are you positive that your PSU has the juice to run all your components. Keep a clear mind, worst case scenario might have to RMA

Is there anythings else that you can suggest? I am not sure what can be causing this issue. I have spend at least two weeks trying to figure out the issue. I am at the point where i think that it could either be the CPU or the Mother board. Thanks again for any suggestions
I know you said you checked your psu, but have you checked all your wiring? Both the wires themselves and the connections? Sounds definitely like a power issue in some regard. Like some component receiving high voltage or something.

Anyway you can post specific parts and model numbers of everything you got in there and which socket/ports you have them wired to?

750 watts is def enough. Just sounds like something is either spiking or just wired wrong.

I think it will be easier and more beneficial to you if you read your owners manuals for your equipment. BUT, if you still have questions after you read them then i'm all ears and more than happy to help.

He's been at it for 2 weeks, I think he needs to RMA. This seems like the same issue I had with my old Gigabyte board. I applaud your vigilance with the board Paco but I think it just might be easier to return the board for a new one.

As tedious as going through the motions of trying to solve a computer issue is, it might just be easier to return the board, telling your vendor what the issue is, and getting a new one. Seems ike you have alot of patience so the time it takes to get a new one, if you bought the mobo on line, will be short. In the end I think you won't regret waiting.

Yes i have checked all of the wires in the PSU as i originally thought that was the issue. As far the specs go i will need to get that later tonight but this is what i can remember as of now that i have:

1)CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V (PSU)
2)Patriot PGV38G1333ELK G Series Sector 5 Desktop Memory Kit - 8GB (2x 4GB), PC3-10666, DDR3-1333MHz,(RAM)
3) i5 CPU
4) SATA Hard Drive
5) SATA DVD Drive

I actually bought at a store and still have all of my receipts so i think that will be my best option since i have been at for a month and two weeks since putting the stuff together.My only problem will be what if the board is ok and actually the CPU is defective then i would still have an issue. That would mean that i would have to change the CPU too but i bought everything at same store so it should not be a big issue.

Thanks again for all the suggestions and help i appreciate it for everyone that gave me the suggestions. thumb.gif

When I had an issue with my Gigabyte, I took the CPU/Mobo to Microcenter (where I bought) and they checked it to rule out the culprit. Turned out to be the mobo, 3 mobos later and still at the store, they found one that worked. So, what I'm getting at is, take both mobo and cpu to store and see if they can test itto rule out the issue.

Well that's the thing, I couldn't find anything on what specific slot to use, so I hooked everything up by knowledge. I put my Kingston SSD and my Seagate Baracuda 500gb 7200rpm HDD both into the grey SATA slots using the white and black connectors.

And what do you guys think about the integrated "nic" card? Am I better off using a third party one or is this one in it pretty good? And how about the audio?

No bud, you want your SSD in the Brown SATA slot, especially if it uses 6Gb/s connection. thats the Intel serial port, the 2 browns are regular3gb/s connectors..your 7200HDD would be fine in there unless it's a 6Gb/s. the grey SATA slot is the ASMEDIA serial SATA slot. Even though it's still 6Gb/s I'll bet my last dollar it's not as fast as the Intel one.

The onboard NiC is a bit wonky for me. I think it's the iNetwork software i installed. My DL speeds are still in the high 20mbs and upload speed is 7 or 10. My sound is great, still once I can afford it I think I am going to get a nice soundcaard. Currently I have my comp hooked up to a reciver via toslink cable. Sounds good.

Oh ok, so then where do I put my HDD at? The brown SATA slots along with the SSD? And they are both using the 6gb/s connectors, I read that they are the best.
