well you could get a cooler master hyper 212 evo and add a second 120mm fan for push pull which would kick some serious butt as far as keeping a chip cool. you should be able to find a stock phenom 2 x6 heatpipe with fan for around 10-15

If your motherboard has been previously used, I would suggest finding the clear CMOS switch, or in the absence of that, pulling out the little battery on the motherboard for a few minutes (while the system is unplugged) and then putting it back in.

I read through the thread and am struggling to discern exactly what you mean by "false start" but if all the hardware works, and the motherboard has been previously used, there could be some bad overclock settings left over on it which aren't letting it boot.

Also, assuming you have the CPU cooler mounted properly, I would suggest turning it on and letting it do it's thing without turning it right back off again. My roommates build which I helped him with recently struggled for the first couple of boots, and then figured itself out from there.

Keep us posted!

Thanks for the info, I get what your saying about letting it run but I'm really worried about damaging the cpu and dont know how long to let it run for safely. I have not been able to find anything like a cmos reset button but I may try removing that battery next and see what happens

I have taken a short video to try and help and I hope this link works as i had no luck with a direct upload

i dont think its the cpu cooler. i think its bad settings in the bios i believe all gigabyte bioses have the dual bios setup so you should be able to recover it, pull the power from the back of the case completely and pull the cmos battery off the board and then pull the ram sticks off the motherboard and then reseat them and then put the cmos battery back in and then reapply power and see if it fires up. wait about 5 minutes before you put the battery back in and apply power though.

Ok, that'll be my first task when I get home tomorrow from uni. Really appreciate the advice guys, I'm a genuine noob learning as I go, but as always, you learn so much more when things go wrong!

I have completed this task, still have exctly the same issue, I left it on for about 60 seconds to give it a chance to do something but the CPU fan just continued to false start as shown in that vidoe, all other fans start fine.

Sorry you're having such a time. Did you mention what type of motherboard you have, If so, I missed it in this thread. Try this step: Look over your mobo and see if you can locate either a 4 or 6 pin (probably white) Molex connector on the mobo. It will probably be somewhere near the CPU. Most moden mobo's require a seperate P/S rail to be connected to that CPU Molex for the CPU's power. Check on that and let us know. It's easy to miss on a 1st build and that CPU will never fire up without adequate power. Good lock?

P.S. Do you have a manual for that mobo?
If not, try Googling the manufacturer and see
if you can download a PDF of the manual. thumb.gif

Mobo is a Gigabyte GA-990-FXA-UD5. Not absolutely sure what you mean by a molex but there is an 8 pin cpu power plug which is in placeclose to the cpu

I have downloaded the pdf manual for the board from the gigabyte website already, it's what got me this far! lol
