Hello,

Just completed a new build, powered up for the first time and i got a red cpu led. System runs for about 10 seconds then cuts off and restarts itself and repeats this process non stop? Any ideas?

PC BUILD:
SABERTOOTH Z77 MOBO
INTEL IVY BRIDGE 3770K
CORSAIR H100 CPU COOLING SYSTEM
OCZ 1000W MODULAR PSU
ANTEC 1200 V3 FULL CASE
RADEOON HD 7950 3GB GPU

Thanks

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

Are all of the power leads properly connected -- especially the 8-pin CPU power? I assume that you properly mounted the H100 and it's properly wired to to both the CPU_FAN header and the 4-pin Molex to the PSU.

If that's not the issue then Clear CMOS (don't forget to unplug the PSU ~5 minutes); see - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdHH9KrceR0

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Just realised, i hadnt connected the 8 pin. thanks so much, silly me thought all motherboard and cpu were powered with 24 pin. :)

Happens all of the time ;) 

Maybe you can push some of that lost hair back in your scalp...

Enjoy! :sol:
