*SOLVED* Dead 990FXA-UD3?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
It's been one crap of a week guys mad.gif. Dismantled my entire water loop, except CPU, mosfet, and NB blocks for hardcore cleaning and new tubing install. In the process had a few small leaks on the GPU, 2 HDD's, and some fans (more on this later). Everything has dried for over 3 days now. Fans are all working BTW.

The problem: getting no video whatsoever when powering system. Fans spin (including GPU fans), can hear/feel HDD's spinning and chugging along, but no light from Ethernet port, usually there's a green and orange LED. Also no beep code at all. Only a beep when first hitting the power button.

So a few things got a little wet but I took all the proper precautions and dried everything by hand and put the HDD's in a bag with some silica gel for 3 days. Everything else has been sitting in the case drying for 3 days. Every fan that got wet works still... Haven't heard a single pop/crackle or smelled/seen anything burnt (I've got a pretty good nose).

CPU should be fine. The waterblock was never loosened or removed.
  • Tried & didn't work
  • 2 sets of RAM in different slots, including single stick at a time
  • 2nd monitor
  • removed all PCI-e braided extensions and 24pin mobo extension, using stock PSU cables only
  • removing 7870xt (waterblocked) from slot and trying two different 5770's known to work in 2 different pci-e slots (pciex16_2 & pciex4_1)
  • OS HDD only, RAID-0 drives only
  • clear CMOS
  • removing mobo battery for 1 minute
  • Voodoo?
  • Haven't tried
  • different mobo, really don't feel like draining and tearing down entire loop then installing on my 970A-UD3 right now
  • different PSU
  • maybe some other things?
  • Possible theories
  • maybe the mobo got wet and I didn't know it and it fried, even though been drying for 3 days?
  • possibly the Northbridge die got cracked when installing new tubing?
  • there's 90 degree fittings on the NB block and it's a very tight spot and extremely difficult getting short tubing on there so maybe I cracked the die during tubing install?


Does a board with a cracked/damaged NB give no beep codes? And does it still let you power up fans and HDD's?

I've got 2 different sets, 4 sticks total. Tried them all. The mushkin has been sitting on a shelf for past 5-6 months because it didn't fit my color scheme. I know the mushkins work. Don't think it's ram.

Pictures!!! Really stumped guys... Like what??? The NB die looks absolutely fine. I don't see one sign of a burn/singe on the mobo itself... So how in the world is my board dead? All I did was drain my loop, remove the rads and clean the crud out of them, and add new tubing.

Yes a few things got a little wet but I dried everything extensively for 3 days. The board looks flawless... I will try to run the board one last time externally on the mobo box on a table... Give it one last chance!

Could be a solder joint on the NB die PCB cracked from too much force downward force from tubing install?, you said you have a NB block.

Sorry for your loss.

Visibly it looks fine. Just don't know what it could be. My eyes can't find anything physically wrong.

Thanks for the concern!

Guys/girls it still works!!! So confused..... Just jumped it with a screw driver and it POST'ed. WHAT? I'll edit this with a short video in a moment.

So only things not tested is the original PSU in the case or something was somehow shorting out the mobo when it was in the case. Heh??!?! Will test the original PSU in a moment.

Ah I hate that when your case powerbutton is broke XD...I had a similar issue with my Maingear Shift where my Reset button doesn't work and had to re-solder a broken wire to the front panel PCB.

Good that you narrow out the issue thumb.gif

There's nothing wrong with the case power button. The system was still turning on when in the case. Just no POST/video whatsoever. Only the fans and HDD and water pumps etc would run.

Just tested the PSU in the case as well. Also POST's with that PSU. So the only possible thing I can think of is something was shorting out the motherboard when installed in the case? Like if you installed the board without stand offs?

Only thing is I didn't touch the board when working on the loop. Nothing about it changed. And of course I've been using stand offs this whole time.
