[Official] ASUS SABERTOOTH Motherboards Club (TUF Series) - Page 54

post #531 of 1591
I have a really weird issue going on here. Let me list my config before I get into my statement of the issue.

intel i7 2600k
8GB G.skill Ram (Rip Jaws)
WD 640GB 64MB cache
P67 Asus Sabertooth rev.3
XFX 750W PSU (Before) now have a Corsair HX 750W
2 GTX 460s in SLI

Here is the story, I went ahead and bought the XFX 750W power supply, the unit received power, and failed on the video card. Would not proceed past the attempt to initialize the video card. I used a backup 650w PSU (XFX Black edition) and that did power the unit, passed post, all is well. I then ordered a new XFX 750w black edition PSU, had the same results. I tried a GTX 240 with the two 750w PSU’s and that did boot. XFX support had nothing additional to offer troubleshooting wise, told me to purchase a third party PSU.

I then went ahead and bought a Corsair HX Pro 750W PSU, I installed that this morning, same issue. Fans come on, HDD spins up, mobo gets power, the computer freezes on initializing the video card. I have tried with one GTX 460, same issue. I am at a complete loss here, all 750w from two different manufacturers do not work, and the XFX 650w PSU does work. What could be the issue here????????? Is there something that I am overlooking?

honestly I have no idea what is going on, since you say it work with a 650w psu, so everything is plugged in correctly
could you possibly try a different power outlet in your house/room/flat, and see if it still happens, try it at a friends place?
Could be your electricy system just cant run it, but it makes no sense, since its the psu that converts it up to the higher voltage/w, could possibly be a amp issue but not sure.

how do you have the power hooked up to the two cards?

I can speak to this issue as I've been helping him with the setup. It truly is strange. We've tested the PSU using the directly connected PCI-E connectors, and with the modular PCI-Es, and mixing. We also have tested powering it on in different rooms, directly connected to wall outlet.

* We've tested two different GTX 460s, independently and in SLI. When connected to the 750W PSUs, the mobo will cycle past the red post check with RAM, return to the video card LED and stay there.

* When testing, we're only connecting the Mobo/CPU/Video card connectors. When connecting a XFX 650W, the post continues perfectly with the red LED cycle past the video card to the SATA connectors, and then onto boot.

We made a video of the behavior which can be viewed here:

hmm the only thing I can think of is to try different power outlets, and at someone elses place.

and ofcourse try the power supply in someone elses system.

Yeah we've tried different outlets... and have swapped out the XFX 750W with a Corsair HX750... even different manufacturers internally (CWT vs. Seasonic)!! Same deal. 650W works, neither 750W goes. We for sure thought going to the Corsair would do the trick.

Are you using the correct modular cables with the right power supply? Although the plugs that go into the motherboard/video cards/etc have the right pinout, the other end that plugs into the power supply may not be correct.

Yep, we've used just the cables for the respective PSUs when testing, and even tested the non-modular PCI-E connectors on XFX, modular, and mix and matched to rule that out...

I have this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...8&Tpk=st1000-g and it works great with my Sabertooth P67, i7-2600k, and an EVGA GTX 570.

Good to hear, that is a beastly PSU. So dudes, the issue has now been resolved.

This is what happened:

I came home and turned on the CPU and waited until the VGA LED illuminated. I then went down for dinner. Came back upstairs and noticed it was still in the same state. I turned the computer off, only unplugged the AC power cable (did not flip the switch on the PSU), then pressed the power button like 10-15 times. Plugged power back in, booted up without any issues. I tested 3 or 4 cold boots, all is well…. No idea what that does, but I am stoked I tried it. Thanks for all of the help!

Maybe somehow you cleared the CMOS while powering the computer unplugged? Have you tryed clearing the CMOS before when you were having this issues? I had the same issue, but my problems was when trying to overclock my RAM. After I cleared the CMOS everything was fine
