I think that this is your issue... Running raid with this setup can cause issues from what I've read. I'm not sure if you tried this but the SB, which I believe is what the Hard Drive/ Raid setup uses for functionality, may need more power so upping the SB voltage in raid mode can stablize the Raid setup through the use of a PPL for I/O.
I always run the SB @ 1.25v with the setup because of the number of drives. But it does this (failing prime blend instantly) as well when I boot into Windows on the WD 750GB drive set up in IDE mode.

Hmmmm......

Do you have the Jmicron drivers installed?

What about trying just One SSD connected with a fresh install of W7 and that's it. No other drives connected to the Board or PSU?

Yes, and it is exactly the same when I boot into Windows on the WD 750 GB drive set up in IDE mode.

I suppose I could unplug the SSD's, but I really don't see how that would affect prime blend on the WD drive. It's still failing instantly, and it just passed a full pass of Memtest on the ram.

I'm completely stumped. I'm gonna try uninstalling all the drives and just boot into thw WD drive. If the problem is the same I should be able to completely rule out the SSD's having anything to do with this.

This is a brand new build, literally. The only thing not new is the dvd burner, and the two storage drives, that's it.

OKay, just wanted to check. You know, a bad optical drive has be known to cause issues. I highly doubt that is the issue. Try different Sata ports also.

What version of SSD's so you have?

It runs prime sm fft's no problem (I've stopped it after 10 mins, so it's not failing instantly).

I have now pulled all the drives, except the WD 640 and WD 750 (has Windows 7 x64, brand new install 10 days ago, no crashes) They are running in IDE mode right now. Same problem, fails blend instantly. So, I think I can rule out the SSD's having anything to do with this.

I have posted in the CPU's section also to get a bit more exposure to this issue, and the first response was about the power supply. It is brand new and ran fine for 4 weeks before this issue.

Marc

The SSD's are fw 1.41.

Try only one drive at a time hooked up...

What are your Voltages for the CPU-NB, Ram, NB and HT?

The one drive at a time cannot be the fix for this (I'm not trying to be mean or anything either, but really?? Can't run two spindle drives in IDE mode? doesn't sound plausible, right?)

As to the voltages everything is on auto (have to check if SB is auto or 1.25v). I've also tried with SB @ 1.25v, memory @ 1.65v (auto is 1.6v, and memtest has passed both 1.6 & 1.65v on 1066mhz 7-7-7-24). I have not yet tried raising the NB volts, but that definitely shouldn't be necessary for stock speeds.

This is a brand new chip (today) and a brand new mobo (opened the box today).

It passes sm fft's, will run Vantage all the way through, but fails IntelBurn on standard, and prime blend instantly. This means something to do with the IMC, RAM or NB, right? But it's all brand new except the RAM, and that just passed memtest, for one pass, but it passed more than 7 hrs about 2 weeks ago (and since then the rigs been apart).

I'm stumped. If the power supply was bad, it wouldn't run Vantage (both gpu and cpu tests), right?

I'm lost here, really.

I like it so far but it's a C2 and my 945 C3 should be here by the end of next week. (Hopefully!) I like the BUs clock OCing end being that aids in Bandwidth. Granted that high frequencies are the top dog but when one adds bandwidth to that it max's the OC... JMO though.
Alright grabbing that now.....can't wait to see your OCing results on that 945

Do you have any articles or reviews etc that show the performance increase by going with bus clocking? i am all multiplier overclocking ATM and haven't touched my FSB

Checkout my current setup i am stability testing....it will be used for my games that make little to no use of a quad core...check out my voltage drop specifically and the amazing drop in temps

I am pretty sure i will even be able to go lower on the voltage and will try playing with the core speed of 3 and 4...this is better than rebooting and turning cores off etc not to mention these two underclocked cores can help offload stress from the overclocked cores set for gaming like playing with my affinity in task manager and offloaing any heavy background apps to cores 3 and 4 whilst i leave the games affinity to core's 1 and 2

It's worked great for the few dual core games i have tested so far

Hi,

This seems like a good place to post the issue I'm currently having

So I was just browsing the net yesterday when my computer simply shuts down. No big deal, I thought, computers sometimes act weird. Trying to start it up again, nothing really happens besides fans and lights. To make it short, here is the list of what is going on:

- System and GPU fans are spinning
- CPU fan is spinning at lower than normal rev (kind of a phase 1 rev, it does this always for a few seconds at boot up, now it just doesn't speed up after that)
- Power button can be used to power up the computer, but has no effect afterwards
- Front panel power LED is not lighting up
- HDD is spinning
- Screen does not show anything
- Internal HDD LED is constantly on, even thought there seems to be no HDD activity
- Internal Power button has the same behavior has front panel one (can start up, but nothing else)
- Debug LED shows nothing
- No beeps (does this thing even have a speaker?)

So here's what I've done so far:

- To verify the lack of beeps and for good measure, I've started the computer with all available memory dimm configurations possible to me (1 stick, 2 sticks, two channels, one channel, 0 stick)
- Did basically the same with GPUs to make sure that the lack of image was not caused by them (switched them, used either of the two, used all available slots, etc.)
- Reset the BIOS both by shorting the JBAT_1, pressing the clr_cmos button and by removing the battery
- Removed all possible peripherals so to have the simplest build possible (cpu, mobo, ram, gpu)

All of this had no effect whatsoever. The computer still starts, the lights on the mobo lit up and the fans all work correctly except for the cpu one which works but at lower rpm. No image is shown.

The reason why I'm posting this here specifically is that I believe the motherboard is dead, but that I would like your opinions about it. I'm rather scared to misjudge a bad computer part, and I'd like to make sure it's the motherboard. However, since there are issues which I think the CPU or the PSU would not cause if they were faulty (namely the power buttons failing), I tend to blame the mobo for this.

What do yous all think?

Thank you
My System

If you're getting nothing to the screen at all, and you know it's not a gpu issue, then I would feel comfortable saying it's probably the mobo. I suppose it could be a power supply, too, doesn't seem likely though.
