I decided to test the CPU fan header for you by disconnecting my water pumps rpm lead. I still was able to post I just recieved an error message, "Your cpu fan is reporting 0RPM!"

It instructed me to check my fan or disable the warning in the bios FYI.

You are using different mounting holes for your water block than you did your 9700... Is there a reason? Give your water block a 90 degree twist and try those original holes. I can't imagine that something as small as this would be the issue but it's all I got left.

I say this because I don't know how long those screws are and if they might tough those chips under there. If you are moving the screws back when you put the 9700 on that might be the issue.

Another thing to try and it might seem really ghetto but maybe put some electrical tape on the bottom lip of the water block around the CPU contact area. Not permanatly but just to test. There seems to be a lot more dead metal just sticking out than the 9700 has. I really think your short is coming from those screws or the extra area.

indeed....you can see that its mounted correctly in the middle of the chip, nothing seems wrong compared with zalman's pic's, im starting to think that the CPU somehow overheats and, goes into overheat protection, you sure the reserator's pump is turned on?

Yes the front flow meter spins around ok.

how long would it take to heat up?

The zalman cant be cooling quicker just with its fan.


(I just took a few pint glasses I had filled with coins leftover from nights out etc accumulated over a period of time to the supermarket. There they have a machine you can pour the coins into and it sorts them and gives you a receipt for cash. My total £90/$180 !!)

UPDATE: I removed the zalman 9700 frame from the motherboard and put the one that came with the zalman water block.

I also put some electrical tape stuff around the screws into the frame and tightened them.

It boots now!

Still not certain waht was causing the fault.

ok i put the quad beast back in and in the bios it says cpu temp 47c!!

Thats higher idle temp than with the 9700 I had on there!

Great....happy to hear that it boots with the waterblock.....when in CMOS setup your system is not Idle but approx 80% load, allright unless you had lower temps in your CMOS settings with the 9700, check the full load temps with Orthos stress prime (Beta version of Orthos) or prime95 running on all cores

BIOS temp = about 80% load, so you should expect about 51c @ full load
