is your rig working yet? have you looked in the fridge for your keys? the remote was outside on the porch lol it is just one of those weird azz things dude I am just telling you it can happen, the lords of can never be that work against us always! You mean to tell me you are willing to give up on it all with out even trying the dumbest crap lol. I telling you I undid my cpu cooler one time after I moved my rig into another room and went to fire it up and it did just as you are saying (different board but still) I was going to buy a new board and just for the hell of it tried after I undid the cpu cooler and it worked fine so shut it off Quick and reseated it and low and behold it worked fine for two years after

This is how you should test your power supply. http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...power-supplies.

This.

If you have the wherewithall to make one you can do something like the paperclip test with handmade jumper like this:







You can leave your fans connected, just unplug your 8 and use the 24pin to test it.

It's plugged into the wrong ground but you get the idea I'm sure.

Ugh! I think we all know the paperclip test. Question is: Do you want to play Popular Science or do you want to solve the problem?

Really, all y'all stop pissing in the wind with your throw enough poop up against the wall and maybe something will stick advice. (gotta luv that body excrement imagery)

Pop the PSU out and get it tested - all the rails and properly. Members' ad hoc suggestions are completely without logic and only wasting this fellow's time.

In keeping with member suggestions, please allow me to offer one equally absurd: You might try attaching your house key to a kite and flying it on a stormy day. Maybe that could in some bizarre way jump start your PSU - if and only if lightning does happen to strike it.

Geez. Just test the Power Supply - professionally - and be done with it already!

I'm not going to waste any more time with this, cause I gave you the best suggestion possible in my post last night. This is really a non-problem that is rather quickly developing into a boring Soap Opera.

What are you babbling about? The only soap opera drama I have seen is in your post. If he knew about the paperclip test, then he probably would have done it. The paper clip test is ocz's process for testing the power supply before the rma process will begin. I know this because my ocz power supply failed and they directed me to this test before they would begin the rma. My power supply quickly failed the test, the rma was then processed, and I had a new PSU in a week. why spend money on a tester or have it taken in for testing when this easy step could yield the same results?

Haha while it looks intimidating to anyone that may not possess rudimentary electrical skills, it serves a purpose and cost me pennies to make so I could have a jumper for my leakdown PSU.

All I can say is OH MY!
You really DO KNOW your power supplies, don't you!


Sorry folks, no more time to waste on this one.

Back in one of your early post you said you had extenders on the 24 pin and the 8 pin to the mobo.

I do believe that you will find that some of the pins in the extenders have pushed back and may not be making connection.

I take a real close look at them.

Hmm having huuuuge Hydra problems over here
A friend of mine bought this pc from an entusiast, and he needs some help to setup the hydra....
He got a saphire 460 with the pc, and he bought a 6950 Twin Frozr III a few days ago...

But the damn hydra doesnt work, i get the logo and the optimization bar in the courner, but the bar only goes up by like 10%...
I can use any of the video out connections on both cards, but if i bench with the display in the 6950, i bench that one, and the 460 if i use that one.

Theese are the setups we tried, after each try we removed the drivers completely, and installed them in teh right order. (First # is the 6950 and the 2nd is the 460)
1+2
1+3
1+4
2+4
and 2+5)

I got the same result every time, the logo works in game that i setup in the config, but the 460 doesnt get hot, doesnt have anything enabled in gpu-z and so on, unless i attach the display to it

usinfg 260.99 and 11.3 drivers, and 1.105 lucid..., i'we tried with the newest drivers that should work (266.58?) but it doesnt make any difference...

Also, i only got a gtx280, would he notice any difference at all if his 2nd card is a 460 or a 280? I doubt the 2nd card does much, and certainly not dx11 stuff. wich is the only difference between the two...
