Hello, I just recently got some new parts, the GA-P35-DS3L, QX6850, and OCZ DDR2 800, 2.1v memory.
The motherboard is Rev 2. I put it all together and its not posting, no video. It starts up the cpu fan takes about 2 seconds to start spinning, then after about 5 seconds, it shuts off for about 3 seconds, then turns back on and stays on but does nothing. The Motherboard doesnt have a built in PC-speaker and I don't have one around to hook up. Now the board likes 1.8v memory, mine is stock 2.1v. But the system does the exact same thing even with no memory or video card in it. Any ideas?. I double checked all my Power connections, and unplugged all extras (front usb, extra fans, etc.)
wow, had to put a Q6600 into it to update the bios and then put my qx6850 back in and it worked, how amazing is that, after all the technology advancements you'd think the board would atleast post at underclocked settings or something, thats so lame, who actually has 2 processors kicking around.
