When it's off, there are no lights at all, I was thinking the onboard power switch LED would stay lit.


Edit
OK, found the on/off switch for the debugger led in the bios.

Yes, it's normal. If the debugger light goes out, it means there are no errors, and you are in the OS.

Cmos reset only lights up when you press it.

For anyone that is new to Intel and have old dog AMD tendencies, I just learned something that will be helpful in increasing speed and stability. I first was told, since I have a more than adequate GPU, to uninstall Lucid and MVP as well as the onboard VGA softwware and then restart and set the VGA "share" memory to the lowest setting (32). Then, after startup, I was told that even though I had installed win7 in "IDE" sata emulation mode, that I could change it to AHCI and be able to use the Intel rapid storage technology software. I had only used ahci when I had tried my taste for ssd's but only IDE before and since (or RAID0). I simply wasn't aware of the ability of mechanicals using AHCI truthfully. BOY!! There is a substantial difference. It was a process involved and I will pass along the link for any other AMD converts who may have installed in IDE mode.

here is another link they gave me as well:

I hope this helps someone like me that has a SATA3 hard drive, not necessarily an SSD too, to changeover to AHCI and get the benefits of Intel's Rapid Storage Technology. Thanks for reading and for being patient with us that are new to Intel. There are alot of software differences too, not just hardware.

I read a long time ago that the benefit of sata3 with a mechanical drive was almost nothing due to the limitations of the mechanical parts.I'm not saying you are wrong, since you are changing settings that would benefit any drive. I'm just asking if all settings were maximized, like having AHCI and Intel rapid storage already in place, is there a benefit for running a mechanical drive on a sata3 port?
post #2685 of 3170
I am not exactly sure what you mean by benefits, but I personally use mechanicals for their longevity and maintenance free years of operation. I did notice a SUBSTANTIAL speed difference in load times for programs such as Autodesk 2013 and NERO media center which both would usually take a minute to load(not an actual minute lol) They both now load almost instantly. The mechanical boot drives I am using for the moment are 64mb cache sata 3 drives although I normally, and will soon be running my W.D. V'raptor 1tb 10000 rpm 64 cache drives which will be quicker still. If you mean If you already run AHCI and sata 3 with rapid storage technology will there be a difference, then I have no idea. I wrote the post for anyone like me who is building an Intel system for the first time, hasn't had access to any rapid anything, and is in the habit of installing windows in IDE mode (when using mechanmical hard drives and not ssd's b/c if using ssd's even on AMD, we use AHCI as well. I am actually glad that I installed win7 in IDE mode as I would have never believed that the Rapid Storage and AHCI would have had that much of an effect. 150 per second is great for a mechanical hard drive I think.

If your computer won't boot. Press it. If it still does not boot then it was not the problem.

Well, the Extreme6 1155 has been a very smooth build for me. One of the easiest setups I have done. I like the bios too, which actually has better mouse support than the UD5H. I wish the board was thicker and more substantial, like the UD series..

I have a question on using a PCIe TV tuner in the second PCI-E 3.0 X16 slot. I know it can be done on other boards. I tried it in the second PCI-E 3.0 X16 slot. and nothing was recognized. Now, right now I don't have a video card in it, and maybe it has to have a video card in the first PCI-E 3.0 X16 slot before it enables the second PCI-E 3.0 X16 slot..

This board only has one PCI-Express X1 slot in it, and I want to use two PCI-Express X1 cards.

have you tried using the tv tuner card in the first PCI-e 3.0 16x slot? if that doesnt work either i guess it might be the same kind of problem a lot of people are having with not getting their gpu's showing up? so try clearing cmos/update bios
