No case fan, Running with out the case side however! Load temps are about 46c now, before they were 51c.

I still have to get my board RMA soon though. Two sticks in dual channel make the board not want to boot, it will only boot off single sticks or two sticks, but one in red and other in black.

hey all.. I'm new here.. been searching around on the net about Crosshair IV which i am using at the moment but having problems.. cant seem to find any suggestions as to what is wrong.. heres my setup:

crosshair iv
amd 1090t
team elite ddr3 1333 2 x 2GB
ati hd5870
seasonic x750 power supply.

the problem started when my psu just stopped working after using it for 1 day. theres power going to the board since the Start and Reset button on the board lights up.. just that it wont turn on. So i brought it back to the place i got it, exchanged a new one.

And yesterday i installed back the newly replaced psu, system can turn on, but it will not show anything.. looking at the LEDs, it will blink at CPU and DRAM (back and forth), this is RAM on both the red slots.. thought it could be the RAM giving me problems, so i tried 1pc at a slot at a time.. didnt work.. so i tried both sticks on the black slots.. LED doesnt go back and forth like what happened earlier, but it just shows red on DRAM..

Can any of u guys tell me what is wrong?? or is there something wrong with my processor?? whole setup is not even 1 week old...

Would really appreciate u guys help! thanks in advance!

Well it sounds like your PSU died. I've had the same thing happen to me a week ago but with a diff board (an old sys). The lights light up but no play. The fixed PSU I got back works fine. I hope your PSU did not damage the board/cpu/ram/video. It may have.

Try the following.

Turn off PSU switch.
Wait a bit.
Unplug from power.
Take out all RAM.
Take out CPU.
Inspect these for signs of damage (color & smell, pins, etc).
With flash light look for blown caps on mobo.
Look for TIM on your mobo (short).
Make sure no loose screws are shorting your mobo.
Reseat CPU and Ram and HSF.
Take out battery.
Push power button on case to turn on PC. (repeat a few times)
Clear BIOS.
Put in battery.
Push the clear BIOS on the back of case.
Plug in power.
Let it rest for 30min to 1hr to discharge any static electricity if any from whatever. By plugging it in with a good ground in the wall, this will ground your PC.
Make sure all PSU cables are OK (24pin mobo plug + 8pin mobo plug + PCIE + HSF).
Turn on PSU.
Turn on PC.

Work?

Also, I must say I never hear of "team elite ddr3". The ram may not be compatible with this mobo.

@logic_life: First off, if you wanna check whether your PSU died, try jump starting it. Take a paper clip or a piece of wire. Put it into the 24 pin connector, so that one end is where the green cable is (there is only one green cable) and the other one into the black one right next to it. Remember to unplug your psu first. Then plug it back in, if your PSU works, all your fans should start running etc

But since the DRAM led is solid, I would def say its the DRAM. My VGA light is solid and my video card is dead/bricked/w.e (and I can't RMA it since they dont have it in stock anymore). If you have any other ram that you can try, that would be your best bet to see whether it really is your ram or not.

thanks for the reply! anyways, in your list, i've done just about everything except clearing and removing battery... did not do it because wasnt sure if its BIOS related...

PSU replaced with a new one and all running all fan, all working like normal.. just that LED is blinking red on CPU as well as DRAM repeatedly until i turn the system off..

by the way i0n, heres the link to the RAM i am using..

Hmm... I don't see it in the Crosshair IV compatibility list. That doesn't mean it isn't. There is a mention of a "Team" model in the manual but that is a 1600Mhz version. RAM compatibility has been an issue on these new boards. The Crosshair IV seems to have the largest compatibility list but still... I've also read that the X4 965 pre C3 version CPU had RAM issues, that is why I got the new revision C3 CPU. I know this is not your CPU, the point is that it is perfectly possible that the RAM even if not defective is not compatible with your CPU or Mobo. Now they have the memory controller in the CPU.

According to this, your CPU has been supported by the mobo since BIOS 505. So it is not likely that to be the issue. Is there a chance that you got one with an earlier BIOS? I don't know... but doubt it.

I would *guess* that it is a RAM compatibility issue. Try to get a refund and try some other brand like G.Skill or Corsair with a model listed in the mobo manual.

My NB idles at 45C and SB at 40C with the ambient at 30C. This is with the computer working for over an hour and no fans pointing at it. Should get a lot cooler when the ambient goes back down to 23C.

actually i wanna know.. if the RAM is really choosy or having compatibility issues, will i be able to use the system before my psu decided to die? because i was able to use it.. just want to know..

have checked and mine comes with the latest BIOS available from Asus support site, which is 0801.

^^Nice temps.

Ambient at 30C? That is prob your mobo temp. Ambient means room temp and you don't read it the BIOS or in any software. You need to have a thermometer in the room or check your thermostat.
