I just put together a new build with a crappy no-name-madeinchina "650w" [put weighed a feather] psu today. The system turned on, a few seconds later, shut down. Then on. Then off. and so on...

I thought it was hockey puck psu but when I swapped it out with an Ultra 650w the same thing happened.

Please tell me this is not my mobo, if it was my mobo then I guess it was DOA . :o 

I even tried putting the memory in different slots to see if that helped and it didn't.

Make sure to try a hard CMOS clear removing the battery and shorting w/ the jumper.

Here is something I ran into on my P8P67 DELUXE mobo, when you set the bios to Overclock it will reboot it's self 3 or more times. So let it reboot a few times and see what happens

Thanks but this is a new build, nothing is set to OC. Brand new parts fresh out of static bags today. I did let it reboot for about 10 minutes and nothing fixed.

^agreed, do some basic troubleshooting with test-bench bare minimum setup before you proceed. any single component can cause issues like this, although your right i would most likely suspect motherboard.

Troubleshot - thinking it is the motherboard, time to turn to the warranty. Thinking vulgar words toward this model right now, I've read reviews of people getting this one DOA. or as I like to say DAMNED.

It isn't possible to ruin a processor by putting it in a bad mobo... is it?



...where did I put that beer down..?

Sure, it is possible. Let's hope it didn't though.

Did you buy the motherboard recently, and where from? Normally for DOA you return to the retailer (which is usually quicker than the manufacturer warranty).

Less than 2 months old, from Tiger Direct.

If say my precious i5 2500k was doomed couldn't I just demand a warranty coverage for that too? It is all MSI's fault, not mine..

Probably, but there is a decent chance that the Processor is ok.

ive only seen a couple failed processors in my time, they were celeron D's with shorts that shut down the psu.
