strange problem with build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i recently moved my stuff into a brand new phantom 820 case. Everything was working great before i moved over. I didn't change a single thing hardware wise, used the same HD/cpu/board/gpu/etc. I finished setting it all up, and upon boot my h100i would not turn on for some reason, aswell as the case lights that come with the 820. Doing some investigation i fixed the problem by running another sata power cable from my PSU (before i was plugging the sata power for h100, HDD, and 820 fan controller into a single cord that has 3 plugs) and using each device with a single sata power cable. Now when i turn on the computer, it boots and posts, but i get an error saying please select proper boot device or plug one in.

i haven't touched/checked the bios boot order, but will investigate tomorrow, but i am doubtful that is the issue since i haven't changed ANY settings or hardware at all.
Before i switched each device to an individual sata power, i was also getting a BIOS error saying overclocking failed, please press f1 for setup (cpu is overclocked to 4.2ghz, but i haven't changed ANY settings at all, so im not sure why all of a sudden it was saying overclock failed) but has now been replaced by select boot order.

What I'm thinking here is that the SATA cables have been changed E.G plugged into different ports like you have 6 SATA ports, you've changed which one plug into where, so that may be the reason why it comes up with select proper boot device. It might be trying to boot off the non-os drive.. So then you would need to change the boot device in the BIOS.

The overclocked failed is a common thing IF you take out the cpu and put it back in, or if the motherboard 24x pin or something like that has been left unplugged for some time.

I went into bios to try and adjust my boot order, but no hard drive is showing up. the drive was working fine before, and I have swapped it out a few times into new cases with no problems

EDIT: I think I got it working, I fooled around with sata ports and the sata power cable, and got it to boot.

ty for the help
