Noob question on P5BDX with C2D - Page 2

post #11 of 39
Thread Starter 
I can't even get to post. So it's all gonna be at stock/default settings.

I think it's rated at 1.8V-2.0V for stock..

That guy ran it at 800 with 1.8V

Can you take a pic of your mobo with everything hooked up how you have it?

I have to get going to work here in a few, so...the faster the better

It should boot enough to change the Vdimm to at least 2.0 in the BIOS. It should be enough power to get to the BIOS. Your 24 pin power connector looks like it might not be all the way in. The extra four don't look completely in.

A little cable management would help too. That has nothing to do with this problem, but it would help when you get the comp running for air flow.

EDIT: Plus if you don't have the Q-Connector right, your power button won't work to turn the computer on at all. Double check that for everything being on right. The side with the words on it should be facing the outside.

I haven't worried much about cable management yet. I'm more worried about posting and booting it hehe

I've pushed very hard on the 4 pin of the 24, but it doesn't seem to go any further. I thought maybe I put the connector in the wrong way, but that's the only way it fits. So I'll try pushing it harder but I'm afraid of breaking anything

The Q-connector seems to be the most likely culprit. But I've tried in several times and with different configurations and nothing seems to work. I've tried plugging the power switch straight into the mobo, but it made no difference.

Indeed the extra 4pin on the 24pin main plug on that PSU does not fully lock into place. It is tricky to get in right so be sure yours is fully seated, as well as oreintated corrctly. On mine I only connected the 24pin main and the 4pin CPU.

Check your connections on the Q-connector and verify they are correct with the manual. You may have to reverse them (turn them upside down)

Not sure on the RAM issue, my sticks are supposed to run factory at 2.1v and 4-4-4-12 timings at 800 speed....but they booted at 1.8v, 5-5-5-15 and 800 speed....but they did boot fine.

Sometimes these problems are from something very minor that was overlooked, a wire not fully connected, or backwards.....take a deep breath, and slowly go over every connection.

My RAM should boot then, and I'll adjust in the BIOS

I didn't OC yet since I haven't even posted for the first time yet

I will go over every connection meticulously later. Right now I need a break and a change of mind. That'll surely help catch any mistakes I might have missed.
