Have you accessed BIOS(startup and start tapping F2) to see if SLI and not PCIexpress is selected?
The best thing that I can recommend with any SLI or Crossfire setup is to install the cards seperately at first to make sure they are working by themselves. Then install the cards in SLI or Crossfire configuration.
Hi playboyalive, to answer your question! (Yes) the,
XFX nForce 790i Ultra SLI Motherboard will support Intel's core i7 extreme edition multi-core 3.2GHz CPU. The board can go higher. The highest tested by XFX is Intel's 3.73 GHz multi-core CPU. You can see all supported CPU's at the XFX link below; http://www.nvidia.com/content/nforce700i/nForce_Intel_CPU_List.pdf
What are you going to use the computer for? Gaming? Or Office use?
The processor is on the high-end. It's actually overkill for normal word processing / internet surfing. It's pretty good if the computer is for gaming.
Your motherboard is okay, but not great. Perfect for office use, but I wouldn't recommend it for gaming. It will not be very upgradable. It lacks RAID, and SLI/Crossfire support, and it only has two slots for ram, not four, making upgrading your RAM expensive.
My suggestion for a motherboard is the Asus P5N-D: http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=627&l4=0&model=2033&modelmenu=1
That one has RAID, SLI, two PCI Express ports, four ram slots, and also has a 5.1 sound card built in.
If you do decide to upgrade your video card, I suggest an NVidia GeForce 9800 GTX. They're about $200 and quite good for gaming.
Don't forget the other things your computer needs: 450 watt PSU or better cpu fan, chassis fan thermal grease / silicone paste
Try RAM with a different speed. My 800 mhz RAM didn't work until I installed 533 mhz RAM and adjusted to 800 mhz in BIOS. Newly built PC, default must be set as 533 mhz because I reset the CMOS and still couldn't POST to BIOS. Only taking out all RAM gave me any sort of audible error code. Luckily I found some 533 RAM before I RMA'd the board.
Hi bart, please re-check you're memory. See page 1-17 in you're user manual. (Read everything)!
You're Asus board can not use 184-pin DDR DIMM's.
Also check the QVL list for supported memory page's 1-18 & 1-19.
I did not see Corsair on either page.
You're board can only use 240-pin DDR2 memory. Please read the "Notes" at the top of page 1-18.
If everything (Regarding memory) is within the Asus specifications than clear the cmos/bios & re-boot again. If you're system still does not boot than remove one DIMM & try again.
Asus warrants their boards for three years. Call Asus tech at
1-812-282-2787 EST, IL 8:00AM to 5:00PM. The call is on you but the service is free. It's worth every dime.
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
Would you be kind enough to let me know what Asus suggested? (If it comes to that).
