Core i7 build problem... Tags: New Build Systems Last response: January 23, 2010 3:24 PM in Systems Share sonny21004 January 23, 2010 9:54:35 AM Hey everyone, Just finished building my new system yesterday, I'm using it to type this message! My problem is, when I turn off the system, and try to turn it back on, it turns on, but turns off straight away...many times! But somehow it eventually boots and I can use it. I even managed to overclock to 4Ghz! Well, when it decide to boot lol What could be the problem? I spent nearly £1.6K on this, and to see it do something like that is heartbreaking! Specs: Intel Core i7 860 Asus P7P55D EVO mobo Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty Titanium Powercolor ATi Radeon HD5870 Corsair XMS3 4GB ram Corsair TX950W psu Corsair H50 watercooling Corsair Obsidian case 1x Blu ray reader 2x DVD RW drives 1x Seagate 1TB HDD 1x Western Digital 500GB HDD I actually don't get it, it *SHOULD* have enough power, 950W, but I d'know... Please help! I need this PC to replace my old Intel Q6600 build! Thanks in advance, Sonny More about : core build problem jsc January 23, 2010 11:04:27 AM There's probably something wrong with your overclocking settings. If you reset the BIOS to factory defaults, does it still repeat the behavior? sonny21004 January 23, 2010 3:24:57 PM jsc said:There's probably something wrong with your overclocking settings. If you reset the BIOS to factory defaults, does it still repeat the behavior? Yep, I've tried quite a few things, update bios, clear CMOS, even re-wire all the drives...but nothing works! It did this before the overclock; first time I turned it on, and then every time after that... I'm running out of ideas, I'm starting to think my only option may be to RMA or just buy a better mobo/PSU/both. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
