Check front IO panel wires in particular the power switch wire. Try shorting the power switch pins on the motherboard with a jumper, screw driver or paper clip. If power switch on case is bad or unplugged this will start the PC. Your manual will show you the pins if in question.

Corsair iCue software. You have to manually add your fans in the program to the channel you are using either 1 or 2. From that point you can control the speed and lights.

NZXT Cam has less to control so it's a little more straight forward.

If you need more help I can give a click by click when I get home tonight around 6pm est.

On your earlier post I was thinking if the cooler was working that the TIM on the CPU may have dried up. I didn't want to suggest that until we knew for sure if the pump was dead or not.

Edit: Why is CPU at 40% at idle? That might be a better question....

What RPM does iCue show the pump running at? You can replace the cooler but would it not be better to know it is defective and not something else going on? Imagine you get the new cooler and temps stay the same.

Okay everything I said still applies but instead of pressing the power button on the motherboard you can short the 2 pins on the motherboard for the power switch. You can use a jumper, flat head screw driver or paper clip. Just be careful to only short the power switch pins. If you're not sure what pins the manual will clearly show you. If it powers up then you'll know its the power button on the case or its wiring. If you have an ohm meter or continuity checker you could check the case switch that way too. If it doesn't power up I'd RMA the motherboard. Good luck and keep us posted.

This is gonna suck but you'll need to inspect all the PSU wires. Sometimes they can be pulled out the back of the plugs. Keep us posted.

I could be looking at the wrong motherboard. You may not have the power button or LED. What's the complete model number for the board if you don't mind.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "New Build Issue to put it lightly"

That helped. Correct me if I'm wrong. You had the 8 pin CPU power connected to the motherboard, the 24 pin main power connected as well. You made certain they were plugged in completely with no gap between the plug and socket. You had the ram installed and it made a click with the latch closing to hold it in, CPU and CPU cooler installed without issue. You plugged in the PSU and pushed the start button that is located on the motherboard, not the case, and nothing happened. If this is accurate is it possible for you to borrow another PSU? If nothing happens with a 2nd PSU it would be safe to say it is the motherboard. If the CPU was bad you would get a CPU error code whether audible or on the LED display on the board.

Sounds like motherboard. Check to be sure your ram is on the compatibility list and try using 1 stick of ram, check manual for which slot to use when installing only 1 stick. Since it's Corsair probably not an issue.

Power supply fan still worked when plugging power into CPU 8 pin power socket while jumped at power supply 24 pin. But plug 24pin into motherboard.

Not sure what you mean but I assume you plugged in the 8-pin CPU power.

When you say you "pushed the power button" are you talking about the power button on the case or the motherboard? If you was using the case power button the front IO panel wires may have come off the motherboard. Before you RMA all your ****, connect only the following to the PSU and see if it will boot. Motherboard, CPU, CPU cooler, 1 stick of ram in slot 1 or 2, try both slots or refer to the manual for witch slot to use when using only 1 stick of ram. Unplug the front IO panel wires from the motherboard and use the start button on the motherboard. If it boots to the bios connect a hard drive and install your OS. Make sure the front IO panel wires are connected correctly and finish building it. I'd recommend boot testing with each addition as you go.

Ideally the PSU should be positioned so it is drawing cool air in from the bottom. Double check it, you should be able to screw it in either way with no issue. Won't make a lot of difference either way.

My fans draw cool air in from the front through my rad and blows it out the top and back.

Take some pics and post your build.

I believe the Monaro had the 5.7. along with a turbo V6. I don't know much about the Monaro other than Pontiac ef'd it up when they brought it over. Not even sure if it had the same strut issue. I don't think it did because the tires were smaller. My comment is based on my experience and what I knew back in 2008 when I bought it. And at the time of purchase all I knew was I wanted it lol.

My worst best car was a 2006 Pontiac GTO. At first glance it was easily mistaken for a G6. When you owned one that was a huge insult and could progress to violence depending how many beers had been ingested. The 06 got the LS2 6.0 V8 which was very strong (400hp out of the box). There were a lot of performance mods for it but I didn't do much to mine as I couldn't afford it. I had to dump all my cash into suspension parts to keep tires on it. Instead of making a retro GTO Pontiac decided to steal the Holden Monaro and install an engine that was too big for the suspension. For a little added salt to the wound they decided it would be a good idea to add tires that were too big. The result was strut mount sag and tires rubbing on the struts. In some cases the tires were destroyed and accidents occurred. Pontiacs response was to ignore it all together. Not enough death to justify a recall. I loved that car, but she didn't know I existed. She just kept stealing my money and whoring around town. After 4 years of taking it in the arse I finally had to dump her for a SHO. I still miss her to this day.....

Comment reply on Forum Topic "PC Stuttering/Freezing"

  • 16 months ago

Lets start over : ). Unplug (Power cable and Sata cable) from the 8TB hard drive and the 10TB hard drive. Leave only the SSD plugged in. Does your PC boot to windows? If yes, does the stuttering stop? If yes, plug in the 8TB hard drive and boot to windows. Does the stuttering return? Do the same thing with the 10TB. Understand? I am trying to determine if one of the hard drives is causing the stuttering. After that we can run diagnostics on the offending hard drive if that is what is causing the stuttering.

Who is the manufacturer for the 8TB and 10TB hard drives?

I assumed you was installing win 10. If you did the free upgrade from 7 to 10 your 7 is gone unless you purchase it again. Some motherboards don't even support 7 any more. Are you wanting win 10 or 7?

Do you have an extra USB drive 4 gigs or more? The value is the activation key. Make sure you format your hard drive during installation. You could also delete all the partitions and then create a new partition. Make sure you only have the 1 hard drive plugged in that you are installing windows on.

The engine was bullet proof even when the head gasket allowed water to enter into the oil lol. Still ran fine. At the time I live on the shore of Lake Erie and it would hit -25 easy and she would fire up every time. The only problem I remember under the hood other than the starter was a steady stream of gas shooting out of the carb when the float got stuck. Nothing a hammer couldn't fix.

1975 Plymouth Duster Slant 6. 1st car I owned, purchased used as a kid. Had a fresh paint job and more bondo than steel, frame was rotten. Had to start it with a screw driver by crossing the starter terminals. Front tires leaned inward because of bad ball joints. No dash lights. The hi beam switch on the floor shorted causing no head lights, of course this happened at night. Break lines leaked fluid leading to no breaks. I'd mash the peddle throw it in neutral and coast to a stop. I became very good at judging distance. Best part was loosing my tools out the trunk floor when Leaf spring came crashing through rotten trunk floor. Its was a loveless hate hate relationship.

You could try reseating the 1080. Take it completely out and give it a dusting. Use canned air to blow out all the connections and the slot on the motherboard. Give the whole thing a good dusting. Could be some dirt in there. That's about all I can think of without spending any money. Beyond that I'd suggest getting a Display Port cable.

You need a 24 pin adaptor that jumpers together 2 pins. It allows the PSU to turn on and power everything except the motherboard. You can use a paper clip but you'll have to look up what pins to jumper together.

You should get everything connected and working before installing OS. If you have everything connected go ahead and go into the bios and check your CPU temp. If CPU gets too hot it will shut down. 90c is not a problem for a few minutes

Connect the USB cable from the Kraken directly to the motherboard. Your commander pro might be defective like mine was.

I just looked at the pic, I don't see the power connector from the Kraken for the CPU header and the fans. There is also a sata power on the same wire harness that needs plugged in.

You got this

Those cable kits are stupid expensive. Unless you are building a see through case I'd go with the extensions as well. Depending on your cable management and where you mount the hard drives you will only see the 24 pin cable and the cables for your video card.

The wire from the Kraken uses a USB 2.0 header to communicate with your system. I'm looking at your motherboard now to see how many headers you have.

Looks like you have 2 USB headers on your motherboard. The picture I see has USB white lettering. With the commander pro you will need 3 USB headers to get everything connected. Check the link you will need one of these or you can leave the front IO panel unplugged.

The first one appears to be a USB 2.0 cable that would go to the USB 2.0 header on your motherboard. It also could be the connection for your front IO panel which would go to the audio header on your mother board. The second one appears to be a RGB wire. I see you have the corsair RGB case. You should have at least 3 of those, one for each of the RGB fans, and they connect to the commander pro included with your case.
