New High End Build $3000 budget (Already Ordered) - Page 18

post #171 of 173
Thread Starter 
So I finally have everything plugged in and ready to go. This mobo was really tricky for me compared to my last ones. All the fans work so that's a good sign lol. I have a few wires coming from the top of the case. I believe they are for the fan speed knob. There are four 2 pin cables each connected to a 3 pin converter. I'm guess those control the speed to all the case fans for the knob? Also for the SLI bit. Do I only need one SLI bridge or do I need to have two? If one, does it matter which connector I use?

EDIT
a few more things I forgot to mention.
1) I don't have the 1394 plugged in. Is it needed? I couldn't find a slot for it.
2) When I turn on the PC it stays on for about 5-7 seconds, turns off, then it turns on again and stays on. Anyone know why?
3) I used the power cables provided from the PSU to power my GPUs instead of the power cables that came with the GPUs. Does it matter which cables I use? I assume not. I'd just like to be safe than sorry.

You mean the pci-e cables that connect from the PSU? Yeah it is better to use those than the ones that come with a gpu that are basically molex adapters

Not sure about the extra cables you have. One SLI bridge is all you'll need, IIRC it doesnt matter which one you use.

1. 1394 is not needed these days
2. mmm never had that happen to me personally; might be the BIOS detecting a setup error -> rebooting to some default setting
3. those PSU adapters provided with the GPUs are typically only used if your PSU is old and/or doesnt have the necessary connections for pcie 8/6pin cables. If you didn't need to use them to hook everything up, that's perfectly normal
