Glad to be back, just wish it was under better circumstances...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I haven't been in here in a while because I have had a heck of a year. I had my right shoulder reconstructed, doctors found cancer in 2 separate places on me, I have had a stroke, I have 3 vertebrae crushing the nerve in my spine and due to the chemo and radiation I have a lot of brain cells that have been fried. I am surprised I am not a talking monkey at this point...LOL

I was never really much of a talker anyway, but i read a lot of posts and found this group to be one of the more knowledgeable ones which is why I need your help. Before I got sick, I bought (back over a year ago) a state of the art box to build, but I need some help getting it built from start to finish as I am not to bright at this point. I need simple down to earth data on how to put this stuff together. It is capable of 5+ghz CPU speed if I can get it right. I still have my trusty 3.9 to use too in the meantime, but I want to play 64bit games now that I am disabled. This is some of what I bought:

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W #FD9590FHHKWOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition

ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS

MSI Radeon R9 390 DirectX 12 R9 390 GAMING 8G 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

1x CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3

Swiftech H320 X2 Prestige 3x120 mm Drive X2 Prestige AIO CPU Cooler

EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G3, 220-G3-1000-X1, 80+ GOLD, 1000W Fully Modular, EVGA ECO Mode with New HDB Fan, Includes FREE Power On Self Tester, Compact 150mm Size, Power Supply

APC 10 outlets 1500VA Back UPS Pro Uninterruptible Power Supply UPS Model BR1500G

(2) Seagate BarraCuda Pro ST10000DM0004 10TB 7200 RPM 256MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

ASUS 24X DVD Burner Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST

LG Black 16X Blu-Ray BDXL SATA Internal rewriter with 3D Playback, Model BH16NS40

I bought more stuff cause I am going to upgrade my 3.9 after I get the 5.0 running right. Please don't get me wrong. I do not want anyone to feel sorry for me or anything. I just want the data/advice I can understand so I can do the work. The manuals aren't very clear as to what to do. I may ask for some advice on tweaking or OCing, but that is wayyyyyyyy over my head now. I would appreciate anything anyone can do to help. I can provide pics through a disposable email addy and although I am on a fixed income now, it is not beyond me to compensate someone for helping me. I'm sorry if this is not the proper place to post this, but I didn't know where else to post it.

Hello and welcome back after what sounds like a lot trouble and hospital visits.
Good luck on your build and OC. There are tons of guides laying around to help you out on whatever you are needing. Looks like you have AMD so I would go to that section and look around in there.

TNX for the fast replies. This all happened a year ago, so I am not to sure what was prob, but as well as I can remember at this point, I had:

Put MB in case, processor, power supply (one of those separate plug deals), memory, HDs & graphics card.

I had to use a 2-fan CPU cooler with cooling pipes even though I have 3 water coolers cause I couldn't figure out how to hook them up / mount them. I'd rather use one of them! I don't know how I ended up with 3 ... LOL

I guess I'm gonna sell 2 or 1 as they're still in box.

I thought I had it all plugged up right. When I turned on the MB "on" button, the blue light came on, but I got no POST data and no beeps. That was when I had my med problems.

I am going to retry the setup again so it is fresh and repost soon. Until then, I am going to post pics in my gallery as soon as I see the size limit so you can see where I am now...

TNX for your help and info people!

Well ... GOOD NEWS folks !

I got the 4.7ghz (un-overclocked) box running. It turns out it was something as simple as using along with the 24 pin power plug; "both" the power plugs to mobo instead of just the one 4-pin plug.

Whew ! biggrin.gif

It only took me a few sleepless nights and a call to Tech Supp to verify connections.

I bought another MSI mobo and 4.0 ghz (un-overclocked) processor to replace the one I built 15 years ago and I finally got it working !
I just had the 2-pin "pwr" plug in the wrong row. I was looking at the manual for the first box.

Man, don't I feel like a "OP" now... doh.gif

I appreciate the responses I got... cheers.gif and I know I'm not as advanced as some of you, but I keep trying. The chemo really messed up my head a little bit... mad.gif
But so far I'm a cancer survivor ! thumb.gif

PS: Anyone got or played the new "Wolfenstein: The Colossal..." game yet ?

Thread Starter 
Probably should get a SSD, but I have 2 x 10 TB's in there. So I am good for a while. The only probs I have now is that Win 7 locks up sometimes, but I managed to get around it by unparking all 8 cores and using a freeby proggie called "jigglemouse" which simulates mouse movement when your not there. And the Radeon R9 390 card/driver doesn't look very good on my big screen. I have a 45" screen at 1920x1080. The standard VGA driver is crisp and clear, but the Radeon is a little blurry and the menu colors look light colored. I have switched the cable to a HDMI one and still no difference. I just keep it in VGA mode until I can figure that out. Otherwise, it is working "ok" for the moment. I gotta put all my stuff back on there which is gonna take a long while cause I got over 2000 CD's, DVD's & BluRays to go through. I think I am going to take a small break after this before trying to overclock this thing as I am not sure of myself at this time. Hopefully the brain cells I fried with the chemo will replenish themselves and I can get back to reasonably normal ... biggrin.gif

And also, I got the 4.0 ghz box going too and have to load it back up too. It was a simple thing too. I couldn't see the forest through the trees ... tongue.gif
