Question about Tyan S5396A2NRF Dual LGA771 XEON5000 5100 SATA2 Raid Audio 1394 GLAN ATX Motherboard (635872021268)

1 Answer

Tyan S5396 and Thermaltake 1500W

Have Theramaltake Eureka Case,Thermaltake W0171 1500W Psu,Tyan i5400XT S5396A2NRF, 2 Intel Quad Core CPU E5405A,Kingston RAM 4G Stick, Powercolor HD3870XT1GB GPU and 6 WD 5000aaks drives in Raid 1+0. OK when cold power supply only spins fans for half a second on startup.Have RMA'd both PSU and Mobo and came back with no faults.

Procedure used to try and isolate problem. First turned off power then drain mobo by holding front case button 3 seconds till light on mobo goes out then tried turniong power back on psu then front case button and still only get spins. My tech has spoken directly with tech at Digicor Australia in Clayton. When mobo RMA'd it had Bios update, tech seems to think it may have a short on the board in mounting. Ther have been other references on google about this startup problem but seems to be no answers. I have contacted Tyan directly but have no response. My tech seems to think it is a timing issue on between mobo and psu. Thanks if you can help.

Tyan i5400xt.. to test for ground.. pull the board from the chassis and test with a different known good power supply

if the boot works... then you have a power supply issue...

does the board have a post code lighted signal ???

if so.. a bad power supply should goto FF error code

verify you have enough power on the cpu rail with your power supply specifications also

be sure you have all cables 4 pin 8 pin and 20/24 pin connections done correctly.. lastestly check if the board is touching the chassis edge anywhere... could cause a ground

also take and loosen all the MB screws from the chassis.. just let it hang there this will test the grounds needs the screw connections

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 with a 945GCT-M3? Will it work?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=719&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0

Here you can see the supported cpu list.

The quad core cpu will not run on this mainboard.

Here is info about the quad cpu:

http://ark.intel.com/products/36547/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q8200-4M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB

But you can add a Intel Core 2 Extreme LGA775
This should give a noteable difference compares to the old single core cpu.

Remember also to buy a bigger cpu cooling element.

Here is no upgrade for the bios.


Good luck

Look under the cpu tab.

What power supply would you recommend for a quad core processor?


Greetings - Even though the CPU is Quad core you could get by fine with a 350W PSU, unless of course you're going to have a killer juice sucking high end video card and/or are planning to overclock your CPU.

A good quality 450-500W would give you plenty of margin. More important to get quality vs rating numbers. Cheaper manufacturers tend to overstate the specs of their PSU's.

Enjoy your new CPU!

Will Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300, 2.50 GHz processor work on asus p5n73-am motherboard..is it compatible, will the motherboard crash or will the processor overheat. I am looking to change my current processor...


Motherboard info
Yes it'll work. Worst case scenario is that you will need to do a bios update. Overheat should not be a problem if you are using the intel reference cooler wich is provided with the cpu.
