GA-Z77X-UP5 TH Does not boot after SLI attempt. Assistance please

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi Overclock.net members,

I have a newly PC built with the following Components:

Cpu: Intel i73770k (Water cooled Cpu)
Ram:16GB Corsair Vebgeance LP
Gpu: Msi Gtx470
Storage: Intel 80Gb SSD
Psu: 1000 Watts Rosewill Bronze
Case: Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

After finishing the built , everything was working perfectly, until I wanted to upgrade my GPU. I was opting to get either the GTX 680 or 670, but after some research, I went ahead and bought a second GPU (Asus GTX 470) to try SLI for the first time (as it would give me close to the same performance for a lot less $).

The day I received the Second GPU, I went ahead and tested it by itself , and it worked right out the box.
So I went ahead plugged both cards to the black side of the PSU (PSU has two sides, black and Red side).

After making sure everything was plugged correctly, I went ahead and tried to boot... The PC would not boot, it started the fans for a few seconds and shut down immediately. I knew there was something wrong with the connection, I went ahead and plugged in the new card to the other side of the PSU (red side) and left the first card on the black side. The pc started properly, but no boot or beep on the motherboard. Ever since, the motherboard has not boot.

I tried reconnecting everything, and starting with the minimum components (one ram slot, one drive) but nothing.
The PSU seems to give power to all the components but it does not seem to display anything.

I tried to reset BIOS by removing the battery and booting it with the integrated graphics, but no boot.

Has anybody experienced any of this symptoms before and could assist me on diagnosing where the issue is.

I would highly appreciate it.

Thank you.

According to your power supply both cables need to plugged into red side.
I do not know why but that is how it is labeled.

What motherboard are you using?

Thank you for your reply.

I think you are right, even thought, I have always had connected the first GPU on the black side and it was working.
But the weird problem is that it doesn't boot at all now.

Sorry, I forgot to add the motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH

Thank you.

So with one GPU it works, with a second it doesn't? It could be your PSU, IDk about a roswell 1kw that costs $130, it might not be the PSU, something might have died other than the PSU.
Also what does the POST code say? Its the LED display on the board.

Actually it doesn't work with any GPU right now. It used to work with one, but when I tried plugging both in, it stopped working completely... The Led says code 62 when it stays steady (Installation of the PCH runtime services). Not sure what that means.

I just bought a Corsair AX1200i PSU to see if it was the PSU, but the same code 62 comes on. I notice that the CPU Fan speeds up faster when the code comes on.

I will go ahead and buy a new motherboard tomorrow, and if everything works, then I'll know what the problem is, if not I think the CPU might be dead; even thought I see no reason why it would be dead. :/

I bought a brand new motherboard, and after installing and testing it, it gave me the same error, but I was happy my motherboard wasn't faulty and I had finally narrowed it down to the CPU.
I went ahead and got another i7 3770k, and as soon as I started the PC, it booted to BIOS! biggrin.gif

Now I have a working PC. biggrin.gif

It took me a little while to narrow it down, but I finally got it working. smile.gif

Thank you hyperkite and sin0822 for all your ideas and support.

yea man sorry i was busy as well, glad to hear it wasn't the board or GPU, not be bad to get a new CPU either, the newer ones seem to clock higher.

Thanks!!
I also returned the faulty CPU to Intel, and they sent me a new one. thumb.gif :-D
So it is all good now.

For right now, I think I'm okay in terms of speed, but I've been thinking on getting a newer GPU, maybe the GTX 780, but I'm not sure if I'll gain enough performance to balance the cost, as I don't game much now days.
