Sure man, anyone can get lucky on a decent running combo. In my experience, I cannot get stable past 210, BUT, Im at 1T. I think my timings are pretty loose too, 3-3-3-8. I don't worry much about the OC'ing properties of my machine, except the CPU, which is at 3ghz dead on. So I'm ok, just a HTPC.

I am still considering ways to use my 16Gb RAM to its full potential. This machine is going to find itself supporting a friend and I in audio / video projects here soon... smile.gif[/quote]

He is also at 1T 8GB 234MHz.

16GB of ram should not be that hard, you just play a little trick with the SPD & motherboard BIOS. SPD is easy for me, but I can't do BIOS, but I am a quick learner.


Windows system shows 6.1 for CPU & RAM 1T, but hold-on, I am at 225MHz 2T and I am also showing 6.1 for CPU & RAM, but yet I am not at full speed..

Better video still @4K https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqfIiBUh_54

Here you can see he has 6.1 for CPU & Memory performance see link below.

NOTE: He's memory timings has improved.

I've taken notes of these settings, and will see what i can do with my machine. Will probably keep CPU clock down, but def shooting for 230Mhz DRAM at CL2.5. Guess I'll see what happens, won't spend too much time.

Got the new mobo in, trying to get the damned thing to boot. Sold to me as tested and working. They shipped it with two standoffs still attached to the motherboard, one by the bios chip, the other near the firewire ports in the corner.

No luck so far. green power light comes on at the bottom when I try to turn it on. Swapped batteries like Mr. Scott recommended to me on another motherboard. Trying to find a speaker to see if i get any beeps but I have one of my crucial tracers in; memory isnt even initialized. The bottom LEDs barely light up at all. This is in slot B1 as the manual recommends.

tried clearing cmos, as per the manual.

tried a different psu, cpu, memory. All the same.

Every time I try to boot it powers on for a split second then turns off. I have to try again - usually the next time it will power on but not post, sometimes it will power off again and take more tries.

Blow out every slot, connector, crevice, corner you can. Might just be some gunk getting in the way of one connection...

Or give that baby a bath with battery removed obviously, and caps discharged. I've thrown mobos in the dishwasher before, and they still work. Then again, I've lost mobos just from turning them off one day, and turning on the next... lol

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. Tried another PSU just in case, no luck.

I just seem to have that kind of luck mad.gif

Dusted it top and bottom, every slot, every port. Damn thing looks almost as good as it did from the factory.

Same thing, but now its usually 2-3x instant off before it stays powered on. I don't think the keyboard even lights up, and it definitely wont light up numlock or any other lights when the motherboard is "on"

The lithium batteries are cheap, are these boards that picky?

CPU doesn't even get warm, so my guess is BIOS isn't initializing? I will try to find my puller and clean all the contacts on it.


Doing all of this without a case. Mobo is what I refer to as double Taco'd - looking down on the motherboard it is concave from the chipset lifting up at the four corners, so looking at each side of the motherboard you can see a curve. Would mounting it in a tray to straighten it be any help at this point? My guess is no but all input is appreciated.


Don't want to pull the motherboard cooling, might have to start a claim.

Reading up on similar issues, some suggest reflowing the northbridge. I've done xboxes with much success... Bleh
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/306777-30-asus-a8n32-deluxe-green-light-beeps


Motherboard is Rev 1.01

No blown caps that I could find.

For power both the 24-pin and the 4-pin are connected.


Found buzzer, no beeps. Tried taking out the memory, still no beeps no post
