I think I ruined my new cpu - Page 4

post #31 of 50
On my latest build i heard popping noises during the installation of the heatsink: I felt like I had to use all my strength to get the latch to close, but all worked fine. I hope you find your solution. Keep us posted!

When a system powers up it first has to pass the "Power Good" check so make sure ALL the appropriate connectors from the PSU are plugged in. There are some PSUs and mobos who divide these up so don't miss the thumb size ones.

After Power Good is satisfied then POST begins which starts as a conversation between BIOS, CPU and RAM. I agree that you need to be absolutely certain about your ram being properly inserted in the correct slot(s).

Don't let these Eeyore's get to you. Pare down and get systematic.

Thanks for all the replies! I just left for work after posting the original post, so I'm looking forward to trying all of your suggestions when
I get home! I'll keep you updated as I test stuff out. Also thanks for those of you that reassured me that the crackling sound is normal.

Also I should add that yes I was using standoffs and the speaker was plugged in but it didnt make any sounds.

i had this when i first built my rig with a new 2500k and ASUS P8P67-M PRO

turns out it was because the system speaker cable on my Antec 600 case wasn't compatible with the ASUS q-connecter (or the board pin configuration at all). Kinda weird, but just unplugging the speaker got it to post fine.

Also, my system tends to boot, shut down almost immediately, and then boot normally about half of the time when I turn it on. Not sure why, it just does.

I had the same problem when I built my current rig. Thought I blew the cpu, as well. turns out it was the psu. It was powering the leds on the board and stuff; but when I tried to turn the computer on, it ran for a second, fans spinning, then off. I tried the paperclip trick to see if it would just stay on and it failed. Tried a different psu and my rig works fine now.

That's because your motherboard first checks for anything plugged into the sata 6 ports/USB 3 and then restarts itself to check the rest. At least that's how it works with mine.

@OP check to make sure that you plugged in your 8pin connector.

i had a simular problem on a customer build yesterday it turned out to be be ram placement it had to be in slots 2 and 4 depending on motherboard these were the light brown slots on his once i got win 7 installed i seated the rest of his ram and system posted fine also had the horrible crack noise when closing the cpu lock...

there is 1 more issue to look at your hdds again motherboard dependent you could possibly have 2 grey or white or ive even seen blue sata 3 slots do NOT put sata 2 hdds into these they can cause boot fail some SSD's can work on both though ive only seen the boot fail on older normal sata 2 hdds i.e ones that are not ahci capable.......
