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
Cool! I'm glad you got it working.

Well, he was using a Silverstone cable. It states in the product description that it's "Compatible with all SilverStone modular PSU released after 2009". So I bet it would have worked on a Silverstone PSU. If you use an actual adapter like one of these, it should work fine.

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.

Thanks for the info blackenedtush. I think I may have isolated the problem. It seems like the license gets reset whenever I put the computer to sleep and wake from it; I may have to change the sleep state in the bios, but I'm going to do some more troubleshooting just to make sure.

garuda,
Depending on the design of the cooler (whether there's a supporting back plate etc.), and the design of the mobo, having the CPU cooler screws too tight will definitely cause problems. One common symptom is that it can prevent or intermittently disrupt your GPU from driving the monitor, so even if it posts, you won't be seeing the fruits of your labor... only a message telling you that there is no HDMI signal.

Migonacci,

Hey, glad to hear there's some light at the end of the tunnel!

It seems to me that hibernation and sleep states frequently end up being on the list of bad actors in any complicated system I've had.
And on this build, they're again on the bad-actor list; but for a different reason... I have an SSD boot drive which only stores the OS & apps... and like most SSDs these days, high cost/GB still limits their size.

I have done the typical things one does to optimize SSDs.
One of those things has to do with managing what Windows puts on the system disk. And when it comes to sleep and hibernate, I'm not potentially dealing with the Adobe issues that you are because I've disabled both of them. Since my machine has 64GB of RAM, Windows 7 would automatically reserve 64GBs of my 120GB SSD as untouchable space to store the system state whenever it hibernates. That's over half the capacity! I can't afford that.

Hi guys,
I'm working out the minor glitches in my Z9PE, and BT encouraged input & questions. So…. Is anyone having issues with USB 3.0? I’ve heard that this board has issues w/ USB3, but weren’t specific. Admittedly, this is minor, but I can’t launch into BIOS settings (@ POST time) when USB 3.0 devices are attached to rear USB3 ports. I must disconnect all USB-3 cables in order to launch BIOS settings utility. Do you guys experience the same?

And I couldn’t get my Uspeed/Anker USB-3 expansion card to work in PCIe slot#4. The card ports were dead and the Device Mgr have an “Exclamation Point (!) under the USB Ctlr grouping (USB3 Root Hub) at bottom of listing. ASUS tech support had no idea why.

I got my Z9 board back from Asus RMA, and now everything works great.  First one I got was just a dud apparently.  It's on an ancient BIOS rev from last year, but I figure since everything's working for my purposes right now, I better not mess with it.

Still haven't got all the parts together tongue.gif

Parts aren't cheap at all. Need a water block and coolant now.
