Asus Z9PE-D8 Owner's thread - Page 21

post #201 of 2457
> First off... Don't ever try to boot a system without a heatsink... You'll burn up a processor really fast that way. Have you been running the processors without them? I sure hope not...

It has never powered on and ran. The first board we built completely including the coolers, it had the same exact problem (no POST, immediate shutdown) and the heat sinks are a massive pain to put on and take off. They are "COOLER MASTER GeminII S524 120mm Long Life Sleeve CPU Coolers" and 2 of the screws are under the fan and take a decent amount of pressure to attach.
We sent that first board back 1 week ago and received this one on Wednesday. Before we even put the heat sinks on the second board, we'd figure to make sure it POST's to the bios. But since it never powered on or gave a Q-code, we didn't attach the heat sinks and we closely monitored the CPU for a rise in temperature that never happened at all. We wanted to test each CPU in socket 1 and they both acted the same. If they fried without us even feeling any warmth, i'll eat my socks.

So based on your experience it does sound as if we need to RMA the board again....

What's up with that onboard VGA plug and the cable that goes with it; should we expect it to work on boot or does it need drivers?

thank you,
Joe

joetesta,

Yeah ZDngrfld is right... you've got a capable PSU.

I could have misunderstood your description; but it sounds to me like you are powering the board with:
  1. one 24-pin ATX PWR cable,
  2. one 8-PIN EPS12V CPU cable (plugged into one of the 4+4 CPU jacks)
  3. a second 8-PIN EPS12V CPU cable (plugged into one of the 4+4 CPU jacks)

That setup should work. But if you only have one 8-pin 12v connection, you will get exactly the symptoms that you are describing.

Now from what I understand in the product description of your PSU, it only comes with one 8-PIN EPS12V CPU Cable.
What are you using for the second?

Migonacci,
I'm using both Photoshop CS5 & Photoshop CS6 (CC) on this mobo, with Windows 7 (x64) Professional SP1...
Early on in the life of this system I had some bad RAM. So Photoshop CS5 got corrupted along with Windows and some other apps...
But after replacing the RAM and reinstalling everything, I've never had this or any other problem.
If I ever find out something or think of something, I'll try to remember to message you. Every little clue helps.
Good luck.
BT

thanks for your help B.T.
the second 8 pin is connected with this modular cable that plugs into the power supply:

Maybe that cable doesn't have the proper pinout to be compatible with that power supply. Startech makes an adapter that uses PCI-e power

Thanks ZDngr,
Based on the comments in the Asus support forum, starting April 2012 several users reporting the same issue, we decided to try a different power supply, we're planning to have one of these next week

SeaSonic X-1250 1250W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

although i'm sure the adapter would be a bit less expensive smile.gif
It was before I'd posted here and I think it was already ordered, so we'll see what happens

Just so you know, my 2P E5-2650 using this board pulls 250 watts from the wall while using 100% CPU, so you're going beyond overkill with that PSU. I'm using a Seasonic X750 in that rig. There's nothing wrong with overkill, though. thumb.gif

I can't enter the BIOS settings utility (using DEL key) unless all of the USB 3.0 devices are disconnected from USB-3 ports. Does anyone else w/ Z9PE-D8 board have this issue?

Also Joe, I'm not sure, but I think VGA needs drivers (unless embedded in BIOS). And I hope your new replacement board works; pretty frustrating when you can't even get off the launch pad. mad.gif

PS: be careful not to over-tighten the 2011 mounting plate screws. Some have reported it has warped the board and prevented POST/boot.

Great news, we hooked up the new SeaSonic X-1250 1250W power supply and the board boots just fine, we're updating bios now.
So I don't know whether the cable adapter was incompatible or what was wrong with the other 750W power supply, but we are making progress thumb.gif

Thanks for testing, I was planning to use an adapter on my Corsair TX750 but you just saved me a lot of effort smile.gif
