Eveyrthing's looking great though, it looks so close to being done!

Yup I have returned the SATA cable, just unnecessary hassle. Just finishing up the 24 pin now and I should be pretty much ready to go!

So I just plugged everything together to check if it posts and it does, I connected it to my monitor and it recognised the clock speed and the CPU and the RAM but the Debug LED on the motherboard was going pretty crazy giving me a string of codes, I looked them up in the manual and it is saying that I have several problems with the memory, CPU and PCIE which would mean I am basically screwed but they all seemed to be recognized and the gpu was outputting a display so I am tempted to just leave it...

Are you saying it was cycling through the codes when it booted up, or did it stop on a code and display it continuously?

Whenever I've had a motherboard with a debug LED it cycles through a lot of codes during post and then settles on FF when it's finished.

It cycled then stopped on 99 which is supposedly a PCIE error

Yeah, same with my Gigabyte board. It is going through the boot procedure.

[edit] missed your new post.

So all is fine? I think I will just leave it, the 7990 was working fine in my old rig anyways so the only issue could potentially be the cable but its displaying a picture so thats enough for me. The motherboard does have a lot of LEDs on it which pisses me off as I didnt think it had any when I bought it and they are red so dont even fit in with the theme frown.gif

My first though with error 99 would be your pcie riser, but it could also be an issue with the card or board. What you could do is try cards directly in the slot and see if the riser is the issue. If it is, I'd probably ignore it or inspect the solder, but I would never want to ignore something that could potentially mean dead hardware down the road.

edit: as for the LEDs, color the tops of them with black dry-erase marker. It will darken/block the LEDs without any warranty risk (not that I think permanent marker would be any different) because it's erasable with a touch.

Just tried it with the 7990 fitted directly to the first PCIE slot on the motherboard (which for those who havent seen looks ridiculous, the GPU is a good 5cm longer than the board!) And it came up with the same code - 99 so I think I am happy to proceed and will fill er up tomorrow so long as I can finish stitching this 24pin that I remade today

Thanks for the tip on the LEDs, I might try this on some of them but not for the power button as I will be using that as the power button for the case and dont really want to get a black finger everytime I switch it on tongue.gif

May be worth testing another card, since there could be an underlying issue with the motherboard or GPU then, but it's your call.
