The options are for two 8-pin connectors. The board will run with just one 8-pin connector plugged in for CPU power. Make sure you plug it in the correct 8-pin connector (not an issue if both 8-pin connectors are plugged in).
You are right about the 2nd 8-pin connector needed only for extreme OC.
OK, thats fine, but if you use only ONE 8-pin connector, make sure it is plugged into the correct socket. Your motherboard will specify this in the manual. Does the manual say top 8-pin socket? Verify.
Hi, thanks for the reply. I remounted the ram and it worked fine, got win 7 installed, updated, restarted multiple times. then something happened and now my bios wont recognise my SSD.... It takes about 30 seconds on the ROG screen (my guess is TRYING to detect the drive) but then tries to boot off my sata 2 drive. (boot error)
In the bios it says sata 1 is undetected. How can I reset this? I have cleared my CMOS and it hasnt resolved the issue. ALSO, windows 7 installation does not see the drive either.
