7. When we booted the system to see the POST, we got several LEDs on the motherboard indicating errors. After several restarts (and pressing the MEMOK button,) they seem to have been resolved, but one quirk remains. When I first power on the system, the CPU fans will start spinning, then stop. It "stalls" for a few seconds, then resumes spinning until it POSTS. Is this normal or indicative of a problem?

I have the same board and yes, it does this sometimes. Not sure why, but it also happened with my old board too. I would not pay any attention to it.

Thanks for your replies, +rep! It's good to know the CPU fans stalling on startup isn't an issue.

Quote:
The 8pin power connector on the mobo, that is most likely the extra CPU power connector. Since it says -or- on any of those three illustrations, you should be okay. If your PSU has an 8pin connector though, you should use it here. I could be wrong but the extra 4 pins could mean more juice for OC'ing further down the road. I doubt you would notice this difference unless pushing for anything beyond 4.2?~ghz
I'd like to have as much OCing headroom as possible. Do not all of the three configurations in the manual's picture not provide the same maximum voltage then? Is there an adapter I could use to merge several power connectors into one that would?

Again thanks so much for the replies, I couldn't have gotten this far without OCN!

I found an adapter that fits the two 4-pin ATX power cables on one end and has an 8-pin connector on the other end that fits into the 8-pin on the motherboard. I could not get the second four pin connector to fit in the mobo without it. Should I use this?

Dude, the 650TX has a 2x4 pin adapter.

You can combine the two 4 pins into 1 8 pin and put it in the 8pin socket

You will see what i mean

well, for the fact that u used a lot of force to put the cpu in, as long as you put it in correctly (not upside down) it should work fine. it seems to be posting so u did good. I was scared I did something wrong on my 1366 build when it seemed to be an abnormal amount of force to clamp the cpu in.

I remember there was a crunching noise, like the pins were being smooshed. but this is normal, and pins are not being smooshed.

-U can use a 3 pin connector in a 4 pin fan header. I use it, no problems.

-I really hoped U used the standoffs included with the haf 932. and I do really hope u put them in the right place, luckily theres a nice little picture guide that does so. I saw one thread where a guy misplaced 1 standoff and it was a $700 mistake. fried his mobo, cpu, and PSU.


sorry I can't answer a few other questions, but if your computer POSTed, you did a good job! pat yourself on the back, you built your first pc.

also, whenever in doubt when it comes to power cables, just look at what cables are still avaliable to be plugged in.

1. While installing the CPU, I became confused about the amount of pressure that was needed to lower the retaining arm into position in the socket. It seemed to me that I had to use a superfluous amount of force to secure it. On the board (P8P67 PRO,) the socket has a screw-type protrusion that keeps the hatch anchored, and so to put the hatch in place I needed to push down quite hard.

TL;DR- I'm worried I've damaged the pins on my CPU or on the socket itself. Is there some way to find out if I have? A diagnostic to run in windows that would tell me, for example?
Dont worry about it the 1155 (H67, P67 and Z68) sockets are notourious for takeing quite a bit of force to close... if your computer is working it is fine.

Apparently there are three different ways to connect power to this ATX port. Are they entirely the same, or is there an advantage to using one way over another? I was only able to find a power cable to fit the second illustration:
This picture indicates that there is 3 different ways to do it however if you have an 8pin connections(somtimes it is split into a 4+4 pin connection just combine them) and an 8 pin slot on the motherboard then use it.

Problem is, there are two front-panel USB connectors, and only one included Q-connector. Is it alright to only use it for one USB and leave the other unprotected? That's what I've done for now.
These connectors are for ease of use and do not protect against static. They are used to connect all the fiddly stuff where you can better see what you are doing. Just remove the USB one as you have block connectors anyway it's just making it stick out further, and if you want you can connect the induvidual pins to the motherboard if you like but its very fiddly.

These are the connectors the card needs for the bulk of its power, keep both connected they are essential.

Yes this will be fine the 4th pin is for pulse width modulation (fan speed controll) and will not effect the cooling at all... However it maybe noisy on the full 12v.

It will be fine motherboards are quite strong heres a pic of my cooler and its alot bigger and its fine.

I think this maybe the memOK kicking in everytime you boot you might want to go into the BIOS and configure your RAM yourself to make sure its running at rated spec.

The PSU fan is controlled by the PSU its self and cannot be controlled by the user as for the connector if it is a 3 pin fan header then you can just plug any fan into there and it will work.

I heard that same noise! Good to know nothing was damaged.

I double checked the case manual and the standoffs on the case looks like everything's right.

I think I found it. It fits both 4pins, and fits in the 8pin connector on the board! =)

K. About the case fans, I'm confused about how to connect them. Their connectors look like the same thing, like one would plug into the other 0.o Kind of hard to see in the picture though, sorry.



Which end do I plug in? And to what?

Also, I can't figure out where these two identical cords that I found go. Anyone know? Here's one end:



And the other:



Also, should I run a boot diagnostic thing like Ultimate Boot CD or is it ok to just install the OS?

male on right, female on left. the psu usually has male connectors you connect to case fans. on the haf 932, the fans luckily come with adaptors from the 3 pin mobo connector -> female/male molex.

and for the bottom 2 pictures, the 2 female molex -> 6 pin power connector is optional. used for video card power if your power supply does not have enough of those cables, which it should have enough.

and I think the ultimate boot cd is only used for boot problems and diagnostics, so if everything is working (posting) you probably don't need it. Just go ahead and install the OS. let me know if you have any more questions

Thank you!! +rep

So, for the case fans, I plug as many into the mobo as I can with the molex->3pin adapter, and the last one directly into the PSU? I'll go look for the molex-> pin adater.

Would this adapter look like the one in the pic from my post except with 3 pins instead of 6 on the mobo end?
