Z87-Pro questions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've recently completed my new gaming rig. I have a z87-pro Mobo and it seems to always provide power for my ps2 keyboard and my usb headphones even when the pc is off; the light remains on. Is that normal or is there something i can do to turn everything off when my pc is off?

Another question is that sometimes I turn the pc on and it says cpu fan error and hit f1 to run setup. I have to go into bios and exit to boot into windows. I checked the cpu fan connection and it's in the right place and the fan works perfectly fine. It's just an annoyance.

My Rig:
Corsair 600T Mid tower case
Corsair HX850 PSU
Asus Z87-Pro
i5 4670K processor
Gskill 8gb DDR3 ram
EVGA GTX 780 ACX
Samsung 840 EVO 500gb SSD

Thanks for the help guys

To your first question, that is normal for power to remain to the keyboard and so on. To remove the remaining power in the peripherals, just unplug the pc after shutting it down.
To your second question, just double check that the CPU fan is plugged into the CPU header as instructed by the motherboard manual. If you still have issues, go into the BIOS to disable the CPU fan warning function.

ive never tried it as i use the power from the usb ports all the time, but i think windows has the option to kill power to the usb ports when when off.

edit: ya here is a quick google

In Windows, click on Start > Control Panel (or Start > Settings > Control Panel).
Double-click on System, then open the Hardware tab.
Click Device Manager.
Click the + at Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
Right-click USB Root Hub and select Properties.
Open the Power Management tab.
checkmark Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
Click OK.
Repeat this procedure for the USB 2.0 Hub.

Yea if it's not an abnormality that the lights remain on then I don't mind. It's just the led light can be distracting at night. Unplugging the pc would just be too many steps.

As for the cpu fan. Yes I checked and it's in the right header. I will check for CPU fan warning function in the bios.

Thanks

And PorkchopExpress, Thanks for your response, I will try that when I get home today.

I think if you disable power on from keyboard or mouse in the BIOS, it may switch off the lights.
Let us know how you get on. biggrin.gif

Hey guys sorry for the late reply. I looked into bios and there's no option to turn that feature off. but it doesn't bother me as much so it doesn't matter.

However the CPU fan error thing is so annoying. If I restart pc immediately after shut down sometimes it won't show it. But if I leave pc off for some time and turn it on it shows "cpu fan error, hit f1 to enter setup". Which clearly is an mistake as my cpu fan header is in the right place and the fan is working perfectly. So I just hit F1 and then it takes me to bios and then I exit bios. That's how I boot to windows. I just can't figure out what the heck is wrong with it.
