Hi just built my first pc with the following specs:

I5 2500k
Gigabyte p67 UD4
4 gig corsair ram
2 MSI 5850s
CM 690 II case
1 tb samsung spinpoint
650w Antec TP

Basically i built the pc had this issue for the first couple of boots where there was no display and it restarted. Swapped the Power Switch connector on the MB round and it worked installed windows and started installing drivers. Decided i would cable manage so zip tied the cables etc when to plug back in and again it wouldn't boot restarting after 3 secs.

I removed the MB and placed it on the box tried it with bare minimal stuff in and still was restarting.

I got a pre OC'd bundle so reseting the Cmos etc is not possible and i have rasied the issue with them and it looks like i may have to return it.

Thought i would post on here if any one has any other ideas as it is perculiar that it was running fine at one point.

(Sorry for the long post

Could be a loose connection, have you tried a different SATA cable or the drive in another comp? May also be a loose power cable to the board.
Edit: Or an issue with the two cards, maybe try one and then add the other in later?

Probably no more OC, but it didn't sound stable anyway. You'll be able to get right back there on your own, there're plenty of people that know the business around here

Yes the OC is gone but that is half the fun of overclocking

pretty annoyed really spent an extra £50-70 because it was overclocked i know its new tech but i would least expect it to be stable

Also i looked at CPU-z before it all went wrong and the Volts were at 1.426 or something and from what ive read this isnt a sensible long term voltage for SB

so... you bought a pre-built and then paid extra for overclocking ?

Either take it back and tell them, or get reading this site

You can do it again tho and probably get better results.
This. Don't feel toooo badly though, a semi-expensive lesson, but it's better tha learning over bricked hardware

I haven't looked at the fine print, but I'd get on the phone/email and ask them what was up with the OC, tell them you had to reset CMOS to get it going and that you want your money back/a stable OC under warranty...
