Th55b HD C.O.P. question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to build a computer(this is my first build). When I try and turn on the system it's on for about 3 or 4 seconds and shuts off. I've swapped a working power supply from an older computer i have and get the same thing so it's not a faulty power suppy. I think it's the mobo's C.O.P. function activating.
The TH55B motherboard manual says it has a cpu overheating protection function that shuts the system off. For trouble shooting this problem its says to make sure the cpu cooler is placed evenly with the cpu surface. I did that. but I'm unsure of what it means by making sure the fan is rotated normally. How do I check this? And how do I check to make sure the cpu fan speed is fulfilling with the cpu speed?

Hi, i think they mean: Is your cpu fan rotating.
And (dont think someone is that stupid) is that fan blowing the air AWAY from the CPU.
Did you check that the psu is strong enough to support your rig?

I have a 1000 watt Kingwin Lazer PSU. power shouldn't be a problem, and the fan does blow air away from the cpu.

I have the same motherboard and use a h50 cooler, doesn't seem to give me any problems. I've never once had an overheat issue even with the air cooler from coolermaster. This too is my first build.

I'm using the stock cooler on the i3 540 processor. It might have a bad RAM stick or bad dimm on the motherboard. On the i3 it doesn't have whatever the graphics technology is that the other two have and the motherboard doesn't have onboard video. So would it need a VGA card to start the system? Because I have a Gigabyte GT 430 and the VAXG_LED1 light shuts off when the card is in. Does that mean something is faulty?
