Asus crosshair II forumla motherboard not powering up

Just got the Asus Crosshair II Formula motherboard, AMD 9950 BE cpu & 8 gigs of 6400 ram. Slapped the entire setup together made sure that everything was done correctly and tried to power up the system. Inititally the system stayed on about 5 secs, and then just started cycling. Called Asus tech support and the guy I spoke to said that it sounded like a grounding issue. Told me to put electrical tape over the brass studs coming off the case and then retry. Did that and there is no significant change. Please, I need to have this system up and running before tomorrow morning, so any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure your power supply is 500 Watts and above. What is the wattage of your power supply though?

Amd athlon ii x3 450 best compitible mother board


asus makes the Best mainboards in my opinion, All AM3 boards. You get what you pay for so it's worth spending a bit more to get a good mainboard.

Example: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 is a really good option, however I myself would pair this mainboard with a AMD Phenom 2. Though your X3 450 will work well in this mainboard too.
The best compatible mainboard would be the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula or Extreme edtion, however your CPU will be a bottle neck in the system.
The ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 is really good looking and it performs really well too.

You could go for an ASUS 785/790/870/880/890 North Bridge chipset AM3 Socket.
You could even purchase an AM3+ mainboard that will support AMD's new Phenom module CPU's.
Go to www.asus.com and check out the AMD mainboard range that they produce.

Take care!

Hi. Asus has a great utility that lets you update your bios even in Windows.

http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=EIDxaW1Ln3YR9RA2

At the download section select your OS and in Utility section find "ASUS Update V7.14.01 Install Program" This program will automatically update your bios.


As for your Ram issue. Did you try each stick in each ram slots ? If you did and saw no issues, then I am only suspescting of incompability between your Rams.

google asus probe and install it to check your voltages and temps. also look at your task manager to see what your cpu and memory loads are. with that sort of setup, things should be running pretty good. my guess is your temp is high.

Asus crosshair II forumla motherboard not powering up


Hi, To troubleshoot a grounding problem like this remove the entire motherboard (keeping all the necessary connections) and lay it on a wood cutting board ( wood is a bad conductor of electricity) and try to boot up and watch it. Make sure its fairly secure so it doesnt get knocked aside, and be especially gentle and touch the board only on the edges.
This will eliminate whether it is a shorting problem.

Present the result to the MOBO support and they will probably replace the board.

I hope this helps, good luck. *s*
