Crosshair IV Formula, AMd 6 core 1090T build fail

So me and my Roomate both built the same computer. We have the Full tower HAF case by cooler master. We both got IV formula mother board and AMD 1090T processor. I have Ripjaw Memory and he has OCZ. 2 Sticks of 2 gigs. Also, I have a 750 watt power supply he has a 1100 watt. We both have 5850 Graphics cards. We built it ourselfs but when we try to power on the machine we get the same results. It turns on for maybe a second and shuts off. Power remains on the board becasue the start button is lit up..

What we have done,
Moved jumpers, Reset the cmos battery, Tried to jump start it. Made sure ram is secure, Read the manual 8 times, everything is plugged in right, This is my 8th or 9th computer I have built. I tried to boot outside of the case. We have returned all the equipment and replaced it all with the same. Still not booting. Any Ideas out there. It truly has us stumped

  1. Please explain - is this one rig or two rigs; I noted 2 sets of RAM and 2 PSUs?
  2. Sorry we both built a rig with the exact same parts. Both have the same issue of it not booting up for more then a second.
  3. Thank you for the Link, It is very Informative but I have gone over it again and again, It won't boot outside of the case either. It is very bizarre to me. I have the 24 pin connector on the motherboard plugged in and I have the 8 pin at the top plugged in. It did have a plastic cover but I removed it and plugged it in. The cpu is seated correctly and with a little thermal grease with the stock cpu fan. The Fan will spin up once and stop when I hit the power. There is a red light on the board that will flash for a second and turn off. I think it means its getting to many volts but I don't know how it would be.
  4. I assume this is your EXACT CPU => Phenom IIX6 1090T(HDT90ZFBK6DGR / HDT90ZFBGRBOX),3.2GHz,125W,rev.E0,SocketAM3,6-Core ALL 0505

    DIMM Slots:
    CPU | A1 | A2 | B1 | B2 |
    A1 - one stick {any DIMM will support 1 stick}
    A1/B1 - two sticks
    A2/B2 - two sticks
    Try 1 stick.

    The 8 & 24 pin is correct; you did the correct step to install the 8-pin.

    Q - What EXACT RAM do you have installed? I prefer an exact link.
  5. Try swapping parts.. Start with RAM.. What make are the PSU's..??

    I currently have one stick installed now. And yes that is the exact Processor I am using. I feel like its a compatibility issue of some kind but I know the board supports the ram and the Processor. Now I have tried different Video cards as well. I have a 9800 gtx I test with. I have been trying to use the bare minium to boot up and it just spins up and stops. Then when I hit the power button it does nothing else until I reset the power hit the button and it will spin up again one more time. I have tried adjusting the jumper from 1-2 to 2-3 and back as well. I would accept defeat but its killing me why it would do it in two computers. We have some small difference but the core parts are the same.
  7. Hmm we seem to be focusing on the Ram, Am I able to try without any Ram and see if I can just get it to post at least? Would some pictures of my setup help?
  8. A-DATA -

    The A-DATA seems to be more for the AMD 790 chipset verses the 890FX.

    Therefore, you guys had 'fun' choosing incompatible RAM 2 for 2.
  9. Lol Awsome, Ok well I have some ripjaws on the way to my house I ordered from Newegg.
    Hopefully these work

    It won't post without RAM. Also, keep in mind that the AMD 6-cores have their 'own' set of compatible RAM due to their 'better' / faster Memory Controller.

    Therefore, I would strongly recommend that you first look at ASUS {QVL} Memory Support List {Crosshair IV Formula 6-core CP} then next look at the RAM Mfg's Tested List(s), and as a last resort create a Ticket with RAM Mfg PRIOR to purchase/exchange.

    Keep the speeds at or below 1600 MHz or 2000 MHz ONLY for extreme CPU OC'ing.

    If your link is {F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL} Don't know - maybe or maybe not.

    G.SKILL Guaranteed to work:
  14. I'm sorry that link did not work.

    Also this is the product
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
  15. Your link = F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

    My links ; these are on the QVL list from ASUS and are Certified to work.
    RAM 1 = F3-12800CL9D-4GBECO
    RAM 2 = F3-12800CL8D-4GBRM
