The 4th light is supposed to stay on until your OS is loaded, so no worries there. ;)

 

Glad you got one thing fixed, try messing with data drive strengths to find the right one for your memory, it can make a big difference on this board.

 

The 1000 PC P&C should easily be fine, my 510 powers my whole system which is only a vid card and couple hard drives short of yours.

 

 

I checked my power needs here and it said I needed 1255w

At times I have up to 4 400 gig sata II USB drives plugged in.

 

 

cullend11 & icon57

It's staying the right colors even after the 1000 re-boots LOL

No sleep in 2 days.

going to get this thing to OC :mad:

Well it wasn't the expert.....put the DR-SLI U back in same problem with overclocking.

 

took out the 1kw psu put back the enermax still no go.

Only thing left is the vapo LS it's running seperate I start it with it's own switch.

 

who knows my water cooling was only 10C higher so being 10C colder should make no difference :confused:

 

giving up for awhile

 

runs stock clock NP's......but who wants to do that!

Found the problem all is good running 2.94 mem at 250 = DDR500 24/7

 

 

Incase it helps someone else

 

 

The top vid card is in the first back slot.

On my case not enough room for the DVI to plug all the way in.

Cut 18 of an inch of the top of the DVI plug plasitc all is good.

 

It was holding it out about 1/16 to 3/32's just enough to get video...just not good video.

 

 

Thanks for all your help

had same problem with a single card when the cable going to screen wasnt sitting right, or screwed in well, bios letters were green lol, fortunetly it was fixed minutes later by seating the plug completely, could be a bad contact too

What the..?! Wiggling the cards while booting up... well that sounds like a perfectly good strategy, if you want to blow them up. Seriously, that is very unhealthy. Wiggling them while the power is off (as in PSU is off) is okay, but once they are properly seated and the contacts are good wiggling them around isn't going to help. It is not a NES cartridge!

 

If you wiggle them around with the power on you may give components some serious blows. Sparks may occur, charges may build up, all kinds of things you most definitely do not want. If you like your PC, don't do that again.
