I'm having almost the same problema with two computers using XFX 650i Ultra motherboard.

1) MB + Pentium E4300 + 2GB DDR2 Samsung 800mhz + VGA EVGA 8600GTS 512MB + HD Samsung 750GB SataII 7200rpm + DVDRW Pioneer 111D + PSU Thermaltake 430W W0700
Problem: turns on, send NO video sign and don`t make any beep sound.

2) MB + Pentium E6320 + 2GB DDR2 Samsung 800mhz + VGA XFX 7300GT 256MB + HD Samsung 320GB SataII 7200rpm + DVDRW Pioneer 111D + PSU Satellite 545 400W
Problem: turns on, send NO video sign and SOMETIMES (very rare) makes a long beep ( long beep + stops + lomg beep ...).

I`ve already tested in a friend house the memories, CPUs, VGAs, HDs, DVDRW drivers and PSUs (all working fine!). :non:  :cry: 

Do you guys have any idea about what can be done??? :cry: 

THX!!!

At least for system one, my bet is that your power supply can't supply enough +12V power for the MB+CPU+graphics card (remember, your graphics card takes so much power it requires a separate 6-pin cable from the PS be plugged into it for extra power). This doesn't mean your power supply is broken, just that it can't supply enough +12V power (total watts don't really matter anymore, just the +12V outputs).

Hi, firts of all I thank you for the help! :) 

But, I've already thought that PSU couldn't supply enough power, but now I'm sure that isn't the problem. The facts:

1) Computer number 2 don't requires too much power (XFX 7300GT don't requires extra power, it's power comes just from the the slot);

2) the 8600GTS requires a 04-pin cable, not 6-pin;

3) I've already plugged the XFX 7300GT in the computer number 01, so if it were lack of power supply with 8600GTS, using the 7300GT the computer should work properly;

4) I used the exactly PSU model with my last computer (AMD Athlon64 3500+ Asus sli mobo + EVGA 256MB 7600GS) it used almost or more power than computer number 02 and it worked fine;

5) I've tested my CPU (E4300) + VGA 8600GTS in a friend's computer using PSU Seventeam 420W and it worked fine also (his mobo were an Asus P5ND2 - I think). So my PSU should work too.

have same problem
went googling
found ONE website that mentioned something about this mobo, mainly a short paragraph that can be found at http://www.hothardware.com/printarticle.aspx?articleid=961


Quote:
The board is built on a standard ATX form factor and will fit in any ATX chassis on the market today. The board requires a 24-pin primary ATX connector and an 8-pin secondary ATX connector to run, so this may mean that upgraders will have to purchase a new PSU. These connectors are typically equipped on dual-processor boards, although with single-chip quad-core CPUs becoming more mainstream, having an 8-pin secondary ATX connector on even budget-level boards is common.

Unfortunately it wasn't my problem. But I've already used my garantee and the new mobos are all right... :wahoo: 

Now I'll start overclocking my 4300... lol! Just waiting my TT Big Typhoon :sol:
