24 pin power connector, powers on, add the 4 pin, does not. (Asrock 960GC-GS FX)

My other computer suffered from a power outage and it would not display picture anymore. Tried putting another gfx card in and it would not work. Figured the mobo was shot, so I got this mobo as a replacement.

Problem with this one is I can have the 24 pin power connector in and it will power on just fine. But once I put in the other 4 pin connector it will not turn on. Only the power LED will turn on, and I can not turn it back off by holding the power button. All this is while it's bare besides the processor which is a FX-9370 4.4ghz

What could be causing this? Power supply? Or just a bad mobo?

  1. It won't turn on because that CPU isn't nearly compatible with that motherboard.

    That board can't even run the 8320 or 8350.
  2. Best answer
    Your motherboard choices for the 9370:

    ASRock 990FX Extreme9
    Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z
    Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0
    Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
    Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
    Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5
    Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7
    MSI 990FXA-GD80V2

    Warning: This power draw of this CPU is almost twice that of the average CPU. Due to this, AMD recommends using at minimum a 1000W power supply. For cooling, AMD recommends using either either closed loop liquid cooling or full system liquid cooling.
