Sabetooth X58 Build Startup Problems

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just built a computer this afternoon with these specs:

i7 950 processor
sabertooth x58
radeon hd5670
ocz 700W modx stream-pro
2 by 4 gb gskill ripjaw
samsung f3 1tb

Having a problem at startup. I hit the power button, all fans spin, everything is getting power to it. The MemOk light turns on for a few seconds, turns off, then the vga led turns on for a few seconds and then turns off, then boot device led turns on for a few seconds and turns off. There is one post beep followed by a second post beep a couple of seconds later. Then the system runs for 20 to 30 seconds and shuts off. As it is turning off the CPU led light flashes. I am not getting any video output to my monitor. I have a tried a HDMI and DVI cable. Nothing comes up on my monitor which is turned on.
I have tried running both sticks of ram separately as singles. I have replaced the CMOS battery. I have cleared the real time clock. Everything is plugged in correctly and seems to be running fine.

Any help greatly appreciated!

My room mate has an X58 and he had a similar problem and he found that one of his memory modules wasn't seated correctly.

Check video card, if it's not seated correctly some boards will restart thinking that they loaded the BOIS incorrectly.

Well, That beeps do mean something, here are the beep codes from the manual
(click)
Attachment 185364

Other things i would try:
Each memory stick individually,
Try each momory SLOT individually
make sure you have the memory in the right set of slots
make sure there are no bent pins under the CPU (and that the heatsink is not on wayy to tight that it bents the board)
make sure the graphics card is seated
make sure both power connecters are connected to the motherboard, and if applicable the GPU aswel
make sure you used stand offs (or you case had them built in) do stop something shorting out.
reset CMOS
Try a different video card if you have one.

When the BIOS screen comes up it says something about CPU temperature overheating. The processor is not hot when I took it back apart. All seems fine. Any ideas for that?

The heat sink fan was not seated 100% so that was causing the computer to turn off after 30 seconds due to an overheating cpu. Part of the motherboard power cord (the 4 pin connection) was SLIGHTLY unplugged, I think that was causing some problems as well. Silly mistakes.

You mentioned you have 2 4gb modules, you should use 3 modules to get benifit of triple channel memory.

yeah good point, you should have 3gb in there, or 6gb, or 12gb, (not 2 / 4/ 8)
you may have purchased a dual channel kit(for i5 or something) and not a tripple channel kit.
