ASUS A8N-SLi Premium: No post, VERY hot

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just got this replacement for my Lanparty Ultra-D that I never got to post, now I can't get this board to post either. I know all of the parts work independantly, and the board powers up and all the fans blow, but the chipset is getting alarmingly hot and it still won't post. Tried all 3 power connectors, just 2 power connectors, moving the RAM around, moving the GPU around, swapping RAM sticks, etc. Cleared CMOS... Can't seem to get it to go, though everything is powered up. Only CPU, RAM, and vid card are connected.

Is it out of the case? Check the MB Support posts are not shorting the MB... there is a difference between the DFI and ASUS Mbs when mounting them in a case.

I know you had that PSU tested, but I am questioning the results of that test. What brand and type of PSU do you have anyhow? Are you getting any beeps to indicate you are posting, and just not seeing anything on your monitor?

Your PSU could be funtioning, but not working correctly, with big swings in voltages and such. I know you also tested the DFI with other PSU's that were 20 pin and you had to use an adaptor I am assuming? If those cpus were not at least 350 watts or better and with adequate amps on the +12v rail it will cause similar issues.

I got the same results with the other PSUs as with my new one: nothing happening at all. I'm thinking I'll have to RMA my PSU (Aspire 500W) now and get an Antec one that I've been looking at for when I go to SLi...

The chipset heatsink (the part by the CPU, connected by a pipe to the actual chipset) gets super hot within seconds of powering up the mobo, to the point I can't keep my finger on it.

Is the voltage set on 115V on the back of the PSU?

If it's not the PC will power up but you wont get anything

Do you know of anyone with a socket 939 cpu that they could let you use to see if perhaps your Opteron 144 might be the issue. Not very likely, but I think we are grabbing at straws here anyways, definitely worth eliminating as a possibility.
