Gigabyte AX 370 Gaming 5 problem

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey folks,
I got my Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 5 board recently but I haven't got my CPU yet, arrives tomorrow. I tried to turn it on with a PSU to see if it turns on and it doesn't start up at all. If you have this board, can you please try to power it up without a CPU? I wanna know if it's faulty or just needs a CPU to turn on.
Thanks.

Could you please elaborate on what you mean by 'doesn't start up at all'?

The computer should power up /as in fans spinning up/ but that's about as far as you would be able to go. Expect no video output, too.
However, the initial bootup behaviour varies between motherboards.

No, it doesn't power up at all. The fans don't spin and the LED strips don't go on.

You're jumping the gun. Practice some patience.

If the motherboard doesn't turn on once you've installed a CPU and RAM, *THEN* you've got reason to be posting this thread.

Just chill for 24 hours, and stop looking for problems that may not exist. Finding someone who has this board and has strangely decided to try and turn it on without a CPU in it and freaked out when it didn't do what it's not supposed to, is going to be near impossible.

So? What happened when you put the CPU in? Did everything work okay?

Fantastic news. I'm a little jealous honestly - how's it perform so far?

Well the game performance is almost as good as my old 6700k but it absolutely blows that i7 away in programs that use all cores. I went from 1000 points in Cinebench with the 6700k at 4.8 to 1700 with the 1800x at only 3.9.
The only disappointing thing is the fact that I couldn't get more than 3.9 out of the 1800x, hopefully BIOS updates will fix that.
