XFX 780i urgent help needed. - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
I doubt its a PSU issue as the 2x4pins count as 1 8 pin as ocz split them to make them compatible with different motherboards.
Ive been looking around and some say its either a video card error or even a hard drive (broken sata cable) error?
It cannot be a hard drive error as I didnt link it to the system as it was out of the case, doesnt need hard drives to post, but it didnt post, which is annoying.
Im not too sure its error code 7F and all it says in the manual is that its failing to post.
I belive 7F is the last check before it goes to FF and boots successfully, which is really annoying.
Im going to have a play around in the next few days to see if I can get it working.
Another thought me and Mhill from OCN has was that my geil RAM needs 2.1v to work, and most boards default at 1.8v, this might be an issue?

Any resolution on this? I am struggling with a similar problem. Board booted fine for about 1 min then died with the blue LED illuminated, as was the orange one above the RAM. Thoughts on resetting this? Is the board dead? XFX support group only work M-F; I built this on a SAT, so they couldn't help.
