I may have an idea. Along with this fan swap I also changed the Supremefx sound card to the newer revision soundcard from the Vii impact.
Could that be the reason why the thing won't even turn on????

General rule of thumb, "only change one thing at a time" lol.

Too bad I can't follow through with that myself smile.gif

I'd say swap everything back the way it was and go from there.

Hmm definitely a little reassuring that you can get it to power up in some regard, but you're not out of it just yet. You can hook the PSU back up, and remove all non-essential components like GPU, soundcard, fans, even drives and see if she boots.

I don't remember ever seeing these sold separately anywhere. I would think if it was possible to interchange them, ASUS would gladly sell them separately to pocket some extra cash, I'd try switching it back to stock.

Technically they're the same, but ones off the newer Vii series boards. It's simply a newer revision. But I can't fathom why that would be the reason it won't turn on at all. Still I'm done messing with it today. I'll try again tommorow. I'll replace the soundcard with my original albeit damaged one. Itd be strange if that was the case. If it still won't start, I'm gonna be fresh out of ideas

like everyone's saying, eliminate all changes and start from there. while you mention "technically they're the same" do you technically know that to be true? I wouldn't technically assume anything unless I had the technical specs or detailed info from others (hardware rev, testing, etc.). I assume you at least made the swap based on others being successful with the change, correct?

Technically they're different. They have different names, probably different drivers, very obviously different hardware (and I'm betting on a more serious level than just a different number of caps), and quite possibly a different pinout to the board. If they were the same, they'd be EXACTLY the same. Asus doesn't sell the audio card as a standalone upgrade and there's very likely a good reason for that. I couldn't find anything based on a quick search about people who successfully swapped the cards.

Going by your logic, the 480 and the 580 could be considered technically the same card. One is just a newer revision of the other, they both run on Fermi and should be 100% interchangeable for a task designed with the other in mind.

I wouldn't take my board, lop off the audio hardware, scratch up the traces on the pcb and solder in the chip from the Z170 version of my board. I'm not sure why you think either ssolution should work fine with either board.

I mean really... Without a spec sheet, parts list, and a wiring and I/O design sheet, you can't say that they're the same. Don't say stupid stuff, someone's going to call you out and I don't like doing it.

As far as the cards go, I'd replace the old card by opening an RMA and/or talking to an Asus rep about the dead one. Until then, put the broken card back on the board and deal with the dead audio.

You're right. It was stupid of me to think it would work without first finding it out if it could be compatible. I'll revert back to the old card today to see if it fixes the issue I'm having. It's as shame though, that newer sound card was a great step forward in terms of its design. They changed the front panel audio connector location, and it helps with cable management quite a bit.
I guess if there a positive to be had, I'll be able to confirm that the VI Impact cant play with the VII impacts sound card.

Just wanted to make sure I was clear. I'm talking about outside the PSU where the wires come out.

Oh, well you have about a couple of inches in front of the psu to the front of the case. The issue is the cables interfering with any fan you put there. But its possible!
