LanzaT Posted April 14, 2009 Posted April 14, 2009 I posted here a week or two ago about the pros/cons of getting a 295 vs a 275 (my question was actually about my whole build, and boiled down to a 295 vs 2 260s in SLI, but I was recommended to go with just 1 275, which I did). Items in question: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Core i7 920 eVGA GeForce 275 3x Corsair XMS3 DDR3 Corsair 750w Tough Power PSU (don't remember the exact name, but one that tested well) Coolermaster HAF 932 Here's the story: Unbox everything, lay everything out. Put mobo flat on anti-static shield it came with. Install processor. Apply thermal paste. Install heatsink (Noctua N12-UHP or some such, the core i7 Noctua 2 fan heat sink). Plug one CPU fan into CPU_FAN mobo slot, the other CPU fan into CHA_1 fan slot. Put Power supply in case (mother board is outside of case). Install 1 DIMM of DDR3 ram. Install graphics card. Run 24pin connector to mobo, 2x 6pin connectors to the 275. Plug monitor into the 275. Plug in and switch on the power supply. Mother board lights up (power and reset buttons). Press power on the motherboard. Both Noctua fans power on. Graphics card does nothing (fan doesn't spin). No signal output to the monitor. Flick off PSU. Take out the 275, install a (working) 4850 from my existing computer. Plug in PSU, flick on, power on mobo - nothing. Repeat with secondary PCI-E slot. Nothing. Clear CMOS - nothing. Plugged in some of my case fans - they turn on when I turn the mobo on. Plugged in the 275 to the existing computer, boots right up, displays everything fine, fan works fine. Put the 4850 back in the existing computer, and it still works (so didn't get fried by putting it in the P6T). Did I forget anything? What can I do now? I'm thinking the mobo may be DOA? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
