Asus Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 no post

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
My new system won't post:

Specs:

MOBO: Asus Sabertooth 990FX R3.0
CPU: FX-9590
PSU: Corsair AX1200i
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
RAM: Gskill Sniper 2400
GPU: Asus RX480 Strix
Cooling: EK Predator 360

PSU: Self test OK.

PC won't post. QLED CPU blinks one time. QLED DRAM blinks one time. QLED CPU blinks again. After that the PC shuts down. QLED Power stays on.

EK Predator is connected to CPU FAN and the SATA power connector.

24-PIN and 8-PIN power cable are connected. 8-PIN PCI-E is connected.

Tried to update bios and Memtest OK.

Switched RAM Gskill to Kingston HyperX.

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!

Does it have a 4 pin CPU power plug as well?

Check to see if your graphics card PCI-e connectors are connected.

See if you have another cable to that CPU. It is weird but I have to use a different cable even though it was working on the old mobo. Once I switch the cable to the spare CPU cable it worked fin.

BTW I have a modular supply.

One thing that can cause trouble is using the wrong screws.

I used Crosshair Formula Z screws to attach a Gigabyte UD3P 2.0 board to my NZXT case and the board would not post no matter what. When I used the Gigabyte screws, though, it worked fine. I was about to RMA the board before I decided to take everything apart, including my loop, to try that desperate measure. biggrin.gif

One would think the Crosshair screws are better since they're painted but nope.

Also recheck your memory.. Since it hooks in one side and locks from the other. Be sure it is in the right way and the correct slots. BE sure the CPU cooler is plugged into the right connection. The book points out the two types.

  • CPU cooler connected to CPU_fan on motherboard
  • Tested with different PSU and cables
  • Memory installed in correct slot.

Asus Qled:

CPU led flashes 1x
DRAM led flashes 1x
VGA led flashes 1x
CPU led flashes 1x
PC shuts down

Sorry you still have issue with it.. At this point the ram you have is it QVL and is it within specs? Check that all those conections for your front IO are connected right to. If all good there then I would go back to a complete tear down and check everything.

I would remove the mobo and the cpu and recheck the pins on cpu, and make sure the standoff are all properly aligned. I have read some owners had problems with the standoff screws causing shorts. For me I line it up and start with the middle mobo screw and work outwards not tightening them till all screws are in. Then I tighten the center ones then the outer ones. (Sorry its the Machinist rule) Just be sure to go over them to make sure they are all snugged down after.

Then the CPU check the pins and that it is in the right direction. I found out after I ordered my Gskills it was designed for intel systems and was worried it would work. But so far the factory OC area is all fine.

It can take only one thing to not make it work. At worst put the mobo on cardboard on the table and try it that way. That can tell you if the mobo standoffs are a issue. Most say to reset the BIOS some say to flash the BIOS but at this point it may be RMA time. Check to be sure no metal shavings got in and try another GPU card if you have.

I know the ram is weird to put in being a one side lock but maybe a few times in and out to loosen the slot up may help. I take it you are sure the cable going to the CPU on mobo is the CPU marking and that the GPU is all correct plug.

Last by chance do you have one of those on board speakers to plug into the speaker pins.

I know this is most frustrating. Keep us posted.

do you have a speaker hooked up? any beep codes? the southbridge has indicators on it (qled indicators)...any of them lighting up?

if not...do you have power? psu fan spinning up? have you tested for power actually being applied?

start with the basics...

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-steps-posting-post-boot-video-problems


after than...go back to square 1. cpu in and a single stick of ram in dimm 1. they start swapping out components (try different ram, then different cpu, then different mobo)

Reseating it helped me on my R2.0 when I got it, I was so happy about it, put everything together and boom - no post. I felt like a little child that lost his toy biggrin.gif

If that doesn't help, try rotating the RAM sticks - for some reason I needed to do that both on Sabertooth and Aura. Even though I bought 2 separate, same, 4GB modules.

Also if reseating and that doesn't help try it with only 1 RAM stick in all 4 spots each time. With this problems it's usually something weird that's not called "users fault" but "the way things work" unfortunately.

Are those a matched pair of memory modules? Also it may be a CPU limitation.
