correct and you should be able to put 2 nvidia cards in what everslots you want you just cant SLi on 1 & 3 you can kinda SLi with 1 & 2,4,5. This is a bios issue I am sure of it.

Yes, both the 8 and 12 pin power connectors are connected properly. However, there are major tonnage of "optional" fan connectors littering the entire board. I never use on-board power connectors, because they are never as reliable as those direct from the PSU.

Question: Why the devil am I getting nothing on my monitor? Got lights all over the motherboard - kind of like Tokyo at night - but not a damned thing happening otherwise.

This motherboard is making me feel like a fresh-faced newbie retard. What the hell am I doing so wrong that I can't even get a pulse?

Power connectors hooked up to the VGA card?
Just speaking from experience.

Yes, thanks. All the obvious connections have been made - as I have done many hundreds of times. When I get back from the doctor, I will move the video card to the #1 slot from the #3 slot and try a few other things that were suggested.

Thanks to all. This is for me truly enigmatic, something I have never experienced before.

Back later.

try only 1 video card and 1 monitor
try different cable?

my 5870 requires use of the top connector on the video card
my 5850 requires use of the bottom connector on the video card

Firstly, I would try running with one stick of RAM, at least with two different sticks (in case the first stick of RAM is bad obviously.) Perhaps it will get your motherboard up long enough to post so you can change the DRAM voltage to 1.7 (for starters). Some boards don't apply enough current to all 4-Dimms when populated (although rare nowadays.)

Well if you have a spare PCI-E video adapter to test, you can always quickly ascertain if its the card or the motherboard. Mobo will fail with all GPUs, not just one.



Statistically speaking hardware failure wise, this is the order of likelihood from lowest to highest.

RAM -> PCI-Express Peripheral -> GPU -> Motherboard ==========> CPU

CPU failure rate is very low.

RAM for me has been approximately 1/8 ~ 1/10 sticks have failed on me.

GPUs have more reasons to likely to fail due to simply due to their complexity and heat production. They have a Processor, Memory (RAM) and chipsets.

Yes GPUs need their own powersource and your motherboard will not b00t up if is not firmly connected to either a PCI-Express Six Pin cable or two of them. MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT USING AN 8-PIN PCI-Express cable and only inserting 6 of the 8 pins (leaving two outside.) If you have used the 6 pin socket with an 8-Pin plug, you may have fried a part of the card (permanent damage.)

The CPU only has a 8-socket, and the motherboard has a 24 socket (the bigguns.)

Motherboards are virtually equal with GPUs, but I think Motherboards are RMAed more due to inadequate operator experience way more than failure. You have virtually total control from BIOS and can usually easily screw it up. However, they are not physically rigorous and due to their size, and the complexity of objects attached to them, or added to them, make them prone to user error.

I believe the failure rate of a CPU is extremely low, especially if properly installed, correct voltage setup, and adequately cooled.

RagingCain,

After checking each graphics card port with different cables, 1 stick of RAM, etc., I did what I would have tried back when I was younger and dumber. I tried the obvious! I changed out the video card, which I had been noticing only had one of its two fans turning no matter which port I plugged the monitor in. And the ASUS mobo was telling me with its constantly lit VGA LED that the card might be bad. Duh!

Ok, before it comes out sounding like I'm too clever for words, here's what pointed me to the obvious:

I put the PCI-e graphics card out of mind though the fact that one fan never turned and the VGA LED on the mobo stayed on made your advice "common sense". You know there is such a thing as "common sense"; it's just not all that common.

So I am now exultant. My motherboard with the other graphics card came right up - as always and as it should.

So a Big Time Thank You to all you guys for sticking by me and especially for being so nice about it. I have been on forums where someone has such an elementary problem and they just get flamed so savagely. But then OCN folks are much higher on the food chain.

Now I need a 4-monitor (separate screens not a matrix of the same screen as in video games) capable card.

Any suggestions?

All four cards that I used for testing work perfectly in the SLi rig next to me....

All slots (that can be tested 1&3 because Lucid is broken with this bios) work. I had lucid working with both the 260's and the GTS's on the earlier bios so I know it works. The problem is the bios, I would be willing to be we get another update within the next month. Now I'm gonna go over to the asus fourm and raise a little cain.
