I just got out my box, and the SLI bridge - and I can confirm mine is 70mm long - thus 7cm

A red led light by the ram slots appeared for about 3 seconds! Out of curiosity, I then hooked up my corsair psu to the HP and then...... nada. It failed to start the HP board up. Then I reversed everything back to make sure, and yep my corsair psu wouldnt jump start my Sabertooth(just enough to power the green light like before) but the HP was fine with its stock power supply. Wow, I never would of thought because it was powering up my case led and fans. I may still return the board as I feel I may have messed up the bios by reverting back(after I updated it) and I don't want to deal with that once I buy a new power supply. I am so relieved I know what the problem is now though, thanks guys(especially chilidog and MotherFo), maybe I will pop in a later when I get the whole build sorted!

Woot +rep it up wink.gif

Yes, come back and show pretty pix.

So. If I'm stable now, (I've only run 1344 & 1792 FFT's for 20+ min each) it means my the sabertooth z77 demands 0.032 more voltage then my p8z68 board. Also giving me +/- 8 *C more. Guess I'll just forget keeping my 24/7 4.6ghz oc. Going for 4.5ghz now.

Right now I wish I could trade my motherboard and cpu in for something else.

EDIT: Like beer.

Hey guys,

I'm in need of dire help. Last night I was attempting to see if I could lower voltage needed for my 4.5GHz. It successfully passed 20 runs of IBT with 90% memory. I restarted the computer then Windows instantly locked up. Windows continues to hard lock even when I reset the CPU to stock speeds. I just reset the CMOS jumper on my Sabertooth and now Windows boots fine but any changes I make in the bios such as turbo frequency (45x) isn't reflected in Window. In other words, my CPU is turboing to 3.9GHz when I set to 4.5GHz in the bios. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!








Edit: Reflashed bios and all is well.

Corrupt BIOS. Reflash. May have to erase, zero out, and rewrite BIOS if CPU PLL Voltage, VCCSA Voltage, or PCH Voltage was changed outside of normal parameters.

Also, I didn't get here in time, but it was definitely a current draw issue with the power supply from another post.

Could someone point in the right direction on how I could go about reflashing my bios?

Thanks!
