I have an ASRock 890FX Deluxe4 and an AMD Phenom II X6 with Corsair Dominator memory.
Anyways, the first issue is the system starts out quiet for a while and then one of the fans seems to pick up speed and wine. If I take off the side of the case to figure it out, the soumd immediatley stops upon romving the case. My best guess right now is maybe I need a different CPU fan? I have the one from the retail box.
Next, Everything that is supposed to be grey in windows seems to have kind of a lavendar hue. I've had the 5870 for quite a while and it worked perfectly until I did this upgrade of mobo and CPU.
Also, the computer usually won't boot if I power on or reboot. It appears to get stock at the ASRock graphic. If I hit the reset button, the cimputer starts up.
Lastly, I thought I had a great idea and bought 2x 2TB SATA3 drive to build a RAID0. After saying wtf during installation of Windows I Googled it. Now I find out that Windows can't have RAID's larger than 2GB. I've read about GUID but I can't find any reliable instructions anywhere? Does my system need an EFI BIOS in order to even do that?
A new CPU fan won't do you any good unless you're certain it's the CPU fan. Even then, that may only be a symptom, and not the cause.
For your graphics issue, make sure the GPU is seated all the way. I would also go into the color calibration menu to see if you can adjust the settings; since you've got a new build, the monitor color calibration profile/settings were probably deleted/lost.
Is the power switch on the case A) plugged in properly to the mobo and/or B) broken?
I don't know anything about RAID so I can't help with the last one.
An update on this - I power on the computer this morning and it stuck the BIOS graphic. I hit the reset switch and it rebooted and then told me bootmgr is missing. I rebooted and went to BIOS and saw that everything was reset to defaults. Anyone know what that could be?
