And its all incased in the Antec dark fleet df-85...
My problem is after setting it all up it simply does not boot. Everything is running fine except the Thermaltake frios fans aren't rotating (which I assume is due to there being one problem in the setup) and the memory LEDs on the mobo are glowing RED.
The red light means the DRAM bus voltage is too high but is that enough of a problem as to lock the whole system down?
Just so you guys know the Thermaltake Frio is too big to allow me to place the RAM in the first red slot so im using the second and fourth black slots. Is that a plausible cause for the DRAM red lights showing on the mobo? And if the problem really does lie within the RAM could that explain why the Frio's fans arent working?
I'm using the Asus Crosshair IV Formula mobo. And the BIOs cant be accessed at least I am not able to. First thing that came to mind was to try and set the volts, timmings etc. However I might just have to use the stock cooler to place the RAM in the first two slots and see if it helps.
im no tech guy but iv just don my first build with a crosshair iv formula and i had the same problem, after reading around i discovered a list of garunteed compatability for the RAM of which i have bought the giel ddr3 1600-2000 ultra plus. fingers crossed i get it next week
