[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 106

post #1051 of 9641
I just got my mobo and Phenom 955 X4. I've got it under load with Prime 95 and it's leveled off at about 58 degrees C. This seems really hot to me especially since I haven't overclocked anything yet. It is about 75 degrees F in here at the moment. I've got the Xigmatek S1283 on it.

Am I wrong, or does this seem a little hot with no overclocking?

what does it mean when you go to turn on your computer and you get a blue flash next to the ram slots, I hope it doesnt mean I have a bad power supply cause I dont think im getting any juice to the computer :/

If your Power Supply is above the PSU, I'd say you just saw it commit Robo-cide, got a PS you can test?

MY heart goes out to you... Had that happen to a friend (power supply blew) and everything was fine, minus the power supply... So I wish you luck.


Wanted to add that the 1.6 Bios seems to want a tad more juice to stay stable on overclocks. But at least it posts...
It'll post at your previous settings, but in my testing required a .125 bump on both

I actually got some of the mobo to power up, idk if that still means the psu is good or bad but the only things I cant get to say on are the cpu,hdd, and fans :/ ***

@Freezen, is this a known working PSU or is it brand new? There should have been some BIOS code on the LED display on the board. There are few LEDs on the board that light up like above the ram and the cpu socket by default.
post #1059 of 9641
The psu is brand new just came in last week, umm the led display doesnt even light up I think its the fact that I dont even have a video card in yet which some other have said thats probably why everything shuts down and the lights stay up which is the led phase light next to the ram slots and the power button on the board.

@Freezen- Do you think something is shortening your computer? I would take the components out of the case and put them on a cardboard paper and assemble to test it. Its easier to see where the problem is.
