HeadMixer,

I would like to retract my earlier suggestions about using a different CPU to post your board.
Not at all a prob. One nice thing about OCN is that when someone makes a mistake, they are quick to admit it.

As am I.

When I said the CPU Red Idiot Light (only) came on upon boot up with a new build, I see from the mobo diagram in the Crosshair IV Formula "User Guide" that there are in fact 2 CPU lights

1) The one on the back panel indicates CPU voltage: Green = OK --> Yellow --> Red = Time to panic cause the CPU is getting too much voltage.

2) The red LED I am speaking of is on the right side of the ATX Power Connector (From top to bottom: VGA --> DRAM --> CPU). I know from past experience that when I did not seat the RAM correctly, the DRAM Red Light comes on. These LED's only display RED, indicating a problem.

Being quite the slave to logic I would conclude that the RED LED is telling me that either the CPU is bad (it isn't) or was installed incorrectly (doubt it cause I'm infallible. )

Should I then tear this beast apart and check the seating of the CPU or is there a better way?

Thanks guys for all your help.

You're at the right place/in the right thread. I have found these guys to be very knowledgeable and most helpful. If you wish, however, you could start your own thread.

Best of luck with your Extreme!

What drivers are you using? How are they setup?

When i did a fresh install i used the driver off the CD for windows to recognize it for installing to the striped WD black drives, once in windows i installed a few things from the Asus CD but not much of it.. is there an application for determining raid drivers? i dont see anything special under device manager, just for disk drives, "AMD 2+0 Stripe/RAID0 Scsi Disk Device" and for ATA controllers,
ATA Channel 0 / ATA Channel 1 / Standar Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller

Or you have a 3rd option, the RAM is not seated correctly or you have a bad stick.

Have you tried pulling all but one stick and starting up your system and swapping and restarting as you go?

Yes it will boot with just one stick inserted in either the 1st(Primary) or the 2nd slots. Not sure about the other slots but you're okay with one stick of RAM.

Even though I didn't think it could solve the problem (there is a separate red warning light for DRAM), I did try that and it did not solve the problem.

And yes my RAM is Dual Channel (4 Gig X4 = 16 Gig): Corsair DDR3 XMS3

So $hitsky, it sure looks like I need to remove the heatsink and check the CPU, not a lot of other choices I guess.

As Henry Ford once said, "You can have any color you want as long as it's black." Only one choice, so easy to decide.

There is a program called RaidXpert it comes on the ASUS DVD its part of the AMD chipset Driver and you will find the program under the AMD directory
