Use a splitter cable,I have 4 SP120s per channel on my FC5 and it doesn't break a sweat.

Okay sounds great.


On the other hand I tried to complete a POST today after I received the new Cooler to fit my motherboard. And the Red Led for the CPU lit up instantly on the first POST. I've already taken everything apart and check the motherboard no pins are bent on the CPU socket. I also checked the CPU and nothing is wrong with the CPU. I did double check that the CPU was installed correctly in the socket the first time. I'm hoping I don't have a DOA for my CPU. Any thoughts that would also cause the CPU led to light up? Nothing else lights up except the green stand by before the system is powered on. When its powered on Green light is still good, but now the RED LED is on. frown.gif

On a bright note though I have more pictures I will upload of the new CPU Cooler and more Corsair AF120 fans. biggrin.gif

So I arrived home about 20 minutes ago. And first thing I did was reseated the CPU did not put the cooler on since I'm just trying to get past the RED LED CPU light to complete a post. Secondly I removed my GPU, loosened all the screws on the mobo then just barely snugged them, made sure 1 stick of ram was seated correctly (I did this for the first POST test also) rolleyes.gif, I also disconnected the Lamptron reset switch, Removed both led jumpers for the Lamptron Power Switch. And still not go without the RED LED for the CPU. Sigh... Seems like my very first buy for a mobo is going to be a DOA... doh.gif So guess I'm going to get in contact with Amazon and see if they are willing to replace it or if I'm going to have to complete a RDM with Asus directly. Since I have only had the mobo for 3 days I'm going to hope Amazon will switch it out.

Update: So Amazon will just give a refund instead of replacing the item meaning I will have to wait for the refund to appear on my Amazon card before ordering a new mobo... frown.gif I will also have to ship it to them via ground if I don't want to pay shipping cost. Sigh well could be worse I guess. At least I still have an awesome case to look at. biggrin.gif

So this is an update on the mobo. lowfiwhiteguy helped me with getting the mobo to POST so we are heading forward. biggrin.gif I have posted my responses in here to let everyone see them since I'm have two logs in different sections going for the best assistance.

(Before you do anything I'm about to tell you, install ALL your RAM. RAM problems rarely result in an inability to post. The RAM light would light up if there was a problem, so to eliminate that, plug those sticks in. Make sure you put them into the slots that your manual tells you to. If problems persist after all other steps you're about to read, then we can come back to the RAM and start fiddling with different slot layouts once we have established that everything else is set up properly.)

Then, make sure you used the little stand-off screws (little brass mounting screws with a cylindrical or hexagonal, threaded female end, opposite the threaded screw end of them) to properly mount the motherboard into the case. These are super important and, if not used, the board's back will make contact with the case itself, causing shorts which prevent functionality. I'm not insulting your intelligence, people actually do make these mistakes!

NOW: I had a similar issue (no post) when I tried starting my system up without a fan-cooled CPU cooler installed. ASUS motherboards sometimes freak out if they don't detect a fan connected to the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard, as a safety precaution. So first, try connecting a fan from your Noctua into the fan pin header that says something along the lines of CPU_FAN1 or whatever. It is somewhere along the top edge of the board, usually to the right of the 8-pin CPU power connector up there. Speaking of that, make sure your PSU is connected into this 8-pin power plug at the top of the board. Make sure you use the whole 8-pin thing, and not just 4 of them, since a lot can run on just 4 but 8 eliminates variables for troubleshooting.

Second, make sure your GPU is installed into the FIRST x16 GPU slot, and it has power going to it, and your monitor is connected into the back of it properly.

While you're down along the bottom edge, ensure all your fiddly little wires are plugged into the correct pins for the front-panel power stuff. Check your mobo manual, make sure you use the Q connector it came with.

Finally, with it plugged in as I've instructed, with the system off but power going to the board, press and hold the little black CMOS RESET button (I think it's a button on the Saber) next to the 24-pin main motherboard power plug for about 10 seconds. If it's not this button (I'm looking at pictures of it now), find how to clear the CMOS on your particular board, and do it.

Report back after having done this and we'll try some more tricks. This is all part of the hobby, I've been there myself. Consider it an initiation, you'll get there sooner than you think!

EDITED! I was looking at the wrong version of this board up until this revision! It's correct now.


I appreciate your response. thumb.gif At this time I'm at work and will try thses steps when I arrive home. The reaseon I'm using only 1 stick of ram is just to get a POST to happen. Considering amazon has already stated they will refund for it not working properly I should go ahead with this. But I prefer not to have to wait so if I can spend another hour trouble shooting it to work properly then I'm all for it. biggrin.gif Although I'm working 12 hours today... doh.gif

Partially completing a build and then expecting it to boot isn't the best practice, because then you have no idea what's happened to cause your problems. It takes all of 15 seconds to put the RAM in the slots, so do it. These things can't be rushed unless you want to create more problems down the line. So take your time, young padawan!

I've outlined pretty much everything to eliminate "user error" from the equation, so if this is still a problem after doing these steps, like I said, just post here again and I (and other posters) will let you know if we think there is anything else that can be done. If not, you're well within RMA timeframe so don't sweat it. It'll all come together, it's just a question of time at this point.thumb.gif

Okay so I come home tonight and I do as you say I load up all my ram in the correct outlets even though Asus User guides states can use 1 stick as you said not a big deal what so ever. So check. I then realized I did make an error the 8 pin device on the top of the mobo I did not even plug in... doh.gif last computer I messed with is well over 6 years ago for enthusiasts mobo. I work more on servers and routers. tongue.gif So Check on this one. I completed the GPU in the first slot however the Noctua is so large my GPU can not fit in the first slot beside the Noctua literally will not fit in the pci with out a guarantee arc if I placed it in the PCI-E. So left off the cooler to complete a quick boot. So Check. I also connected both CPU cooling fans to the CPU FAN and CPU OPT. (Check) Made sure all led pins, power and reset are connected correctly to the Q connector. (Check)


1. All Ram (Check)
2. 8 pin top of mobo (Check)
3. Gpu first slot (check)
4. Fans on CPU Fan and CPU OPT (check)
5. Made sure all led pins, power and reset are connected correctly to the Q connector. (Check)

Status on power up well CPU led is gone biggrin.gif Boot device came on but realized on the wrong sata connector user guide states the sata connectors a little weird but I understood after reading further. rolleyes.gif

I look to my screen and what do I see?

Its ALIVE!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Okay a little Frankenstein( And no I don't mean the monster)thumb.gif moment I know, but I'm so stoked its not even funny.

Mad Reps to you lowfiwhiteguy. thumb.gif

BTW +REP

Update,

I know I promised pictures earlier and well I happened to forget that my torn down system is the one that can upload the pictures from the camera so I'm in the process of getting it back up and running again. I'm having to finish installing windows and a few other things before I can. So I'm hoping to have more pictures up tonight for everyone.

8 pin power missing...rofl.....no harm,no foul.
What you did by breadboarding like that is bang on,always reduce variables to the minimum to find faults.

Glad it worked out for you.thumb.gif

Yeah both my my computers have been down for the past two days... Ready to do some gaming again and I need to post photos. frown.gif However I finally got my main computer set up and placed to allow me to use it while waiting for more funds to drop in my lap(AKA alot of OT) Was going to post pictures last night when I realized my backup computer is the one that has the capability of using a micro sd card. So I had to power it back up and pull all the pictures off to the main rig. Until I get a microsd card adapter I'm going to have to pull the pics from my out of box computer then to usb then to my main computer because its the only one with internet connection at this time. doh.gif

Update:

I know I said I would get these pictures up a about two days ago, but real life intervened. Hope you enjoy not to many pictures at this time wished I had more to upload, but alas I do not. frown.gif

Noctua NH-D14 SE2011








This heat sink no lie is massive and is well worth the money you spend on it. I mean it covers almost the entire board!!! lmaosmiley.gif

Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition


The Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition fans are not to bad they are quite, but being practically deaf makes them almost silent. rolleyes.gif I think I prefer the high performance though on my fans just for the higher out put.

Components being installed









At this time thats all the pics that will most likely be uploaded till possibly next month. I may try to buy a few pieces this check but rent comes out of this coming check frown.gif

Okay so I have put together a list just now for water-cooling. Let me know if I should change things this list will not be ordered for a little while at the least. I plan to get at least 1 of my new GPUs before I purchase any water-cooling supplies.



Now I know I don't have fittings I will have to order those from another place since I will be using push fittings for the copper pipe. <---This is also why there is no tubing listed btw. rolleyes.gif

Edit: Also I'm trying to come up with a name and more centralized color theme at this time, but I'm having a lot of difficulty at this time. So I'm open to suggestions. thumb.gif
