post #2081 of 6918
Hey all,

I'm having an intermittent issue with my sabertooth Z77 failing to start. What happens is when I press the power button the PC attempts to start-I can hear the fans spin up, then it shuts down immediately. When this problem occurs, it happens the first and second time I press the power button-but the PC starts as usual and runs fine the third time I press it. This might happen once out of every 15 start-ups.
The other day it shut down completely for no reason while gaming, this has only happened once. It re-started fine.

So far, I have hecked the chassis switch with a multimeter for continuity a few times and it seems ok. Ran intel burn test on the CPU-i2500k-it passed OK, it idles at 27 deg C average, the max temp gaming is 58 deg C. Case temps seem normal-I have ever only gotten a few high temp warnings for PCI-E-1 bus on the thermal radar-upping the intake case fans (Silverstone FT02) resolved this.

I don't think this is to do with my PSU, and both 7970's are performing excellently without any issues since I installed 12.7 beta drivers. I'm running the 'auto-overclock' in the BIOS which is at 4.4GHz-I still haven't had time to have a proper play about with it..redface.gif

Has anyone had similar issues, or any ideas as to what the problem is?

I'm running the 1206 rev. BIOS-is it worth updating?


Thanks in advance.

G.

Why would you not think its the PSU? That would be the first thing I would replace after checking to make sure there isnt a short in the wires to the power/reset button somewhere.

Asus Sabertooth Z77
Intel i5-3570k
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB (2 x 4GB)
CORSAIR Pro Series HX850



Yes thats normal for default.
Look in boot part of BIOS and change the value of ROM messages I think its called.
Can be either set to force BIOS or keep current.
If you change it to keep current that should stop getting the logo screen more than once

Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

is your optical drive on the 6th intel port.
If so then I had the same issue, I have a backup HDD on the 6th sata port that has a windows install on it and I boot to that occasionally when I want to try out some crap which I don't want on my proper windows drive.
With the last two BIOS that drive is no longer visible in the boot options, but is still available when I go to the sata config section.
My only option was to swap sata ports with whatever I hav on no. 5 and then it became selectable in the boot options.

Hey just seeing if anyone is using the Sabertooth Z77 in CM HAF X case with watercooling. I'm using the XSPC RX360 rad mounted at the top of the case and using fans in push config I'm finding the left most fan is in the way of the MOSFIT casing. I've modded the fan so the ATX 8 pin power can fit in but the fan blades keep hitting the MOSFIT casing. Should I have no fan there and what about the top 200mm fans, is their enough static pressure to pull air through the rad? Or should i grind away the casing so the fan blades don't hit it? I haven't yet tested the cpu at full load, but at idle CPU is around 25C. Any help would be greatly appreciated

You might get more response on the specifics of your problems over in this section:)

It's in the Intel controller. AFAIK the drive shouldn't work in the Asmedia controller anyway.

I'm pretty sure this is the solution I am looking for. thumb.gif

Hopefully I'll be able to confirm a bit later.

EDIT: Still no luck. I had my optical drive on SATA port 5 originally. I read your post and switched the drive to SATA port 6. Still the same result.

Just to clarify, the drive shows up on the POST screen where it lists all the SATA devices on the Intel controller. So the drive IS being detected (and don't forget that it works fine once I'm in Windows). It's just that when I press F8 to go to the boot menu, or when I press DEL to enter setup, the drive is basically non-existent. I am completely stumped.

If anyone is wondering, the optical drive is an ASUS DRW-24B1ST "c", firmware version 1.05.
