Question about ASUS NCT-D (90MSV430G0UAY) Motherboard

1 Answer

ASUS NCT-d Motherboard NCT-D One Xeon 3.2 CPU. System has been running steady for two years. Now system will power up and then shut down (crow barring) Took system down to basic config and discovered when I press down on the right side of the CPU heatsink/fan the system will power on. When I release pressure, system shuts down. I removed heatsink/fan, removed old thermal grease using Isopropal alcohol. I removed CPU, checked pins, reseated CPU, replaced thermal grease and heatsink/fan and problem returns. I removed heatsink/fan and replaced but this time turning heatsink/fan 180degrees and same sysmptoms. I think the issue is with the systemboad and not the heatsink and the answer is to replace the systemboard :-( Any suggestions, recommendation? Thanks

Hi, have you tried removing the CPU and using a Air Jet Spray can to clean all contact pins and pin holes? The problem sounds like a loose chip. So also check all on board chips are seated, including RAM chips. Air spray can be bought from most Computer stores. Goodluck mistyman

I bought a barebones kit that has this motherboard. When I power it on, the system trys to turn on for about 5 seconds then the whole system shuts down. I called Asus support, they had me remove the cpu...

This could be a cmos battery or you need a bios update.
You will possibly need to call the manufacturer or go to the site and see if there is a bios update.
The cmos battery possibly needs to be replaced if this doesn't work then you will need to get a new board. This board is defective and if this is your second board then go to another manufacturer.

Cant get computer to

Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply, CPU and power switch.

Turn on the computer. You should hear 3 beeps because you removed the memory.

If you don't hear any beeps, check the power supply. Check all the connections. Did you connect the 4 pin power? Did you skimp on it? A common mistake is to get a cheap, high-power supply. Just because the box says it's 1000 WATTs doesn't mean that will carry a steady load.

Still nothing...

It's either a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another processor that is supported on that board and you know it works, try it. If it boots return your CPU for a good one.

Unfortunatly, if it doesn't boot with a known-good processor that just proves the board is bad; it doesn't prove your CPU is good. You may have more issues.

Hello there, I got Asus PC-DL Deluxe UAYZ motherboard and would like to connect to ATX 300W 20 pin power supply. Do you think it works, or should i wait till i find 24pin power supply. thanks for your...

This motherboard is designed to be used as a workstation or server. This mother board will need a specific power supply designed for this board as it can use 2 Xeon CPUs. Setting this board with the incorrect power supply will cause the system to not power up or at worse result in damage to the CPU, motherboard, memory, video and other devices including possibly the power supply. I suggest obtaining the proper power supply for this motherboard

The manual for this board states that the motherboard requires a 24 pin ATX power supply that also has an 8 pin 12 volt connector. The manual from ASUS recommends no less then a 300 Watt power supply. I would professionally recommend 500 watts or more if the system will use 2 CPUs and many hard drives in a RAID array.

A suitable power supply can be found here at Newegg

The manual is here at ASUS's support site at

I was running a virus check, asked what to do, I said fix, computer shut down and alarm buzzer came on. now I don't get a boot sound

With the system shut down, unplug the power cable from the power supply. Open you're case and pull the memory from the system wait a minute than reseat the memory. Re-connect the power cable to the power supply. Try booting the system and enter the bios menu. (Pulling the memory will clear any memory resident virus). This has nothing to do with the alarm buzzer sound you heard. Typically the alarm sound is generated by the CPU. It's an audible warning that the CPU is over-heating. The CPU will shut down you're system so as not to damage the motherboard and CPU. (Suggest you check the CPU fan for dust build-up. Use canned air to help remove any build-up. You can also use a clean paint brush to help remove any dust from under each CPU fan blade.
It's also possible that the CPU fan is running far too slow and may need to be replaced.
See page 3-23 in you're user manual.
3-8. PC Health Status.

Open the link provided below for a new heat-sink and fan assembly for a socket 462;
If the CPU fan and heat-sink assembly seems clean it is also possible that the thermal grease / thermal tape between the heat-sink and CPU is too old and needs to be replaced. (Save this check for last).

Memory upgrade I have installed the memory and the computer give me one long and 2 short beeps

I am sure that, this is problem with your memory module only.
possible solutions:
1. Check the RAM which you installed is compactible with your motherboard.
2. Try removing and reconnecting your memory module again to your motherboard and restart you system. keep trying this for atleast 6 or 7 time. your system may become alive in any of the attempts.
3. remove dirts which present in the connecting terminals and again try.
4. try connecting the memory modules to any other system to find out any problem with your memory or not.
I hope this is helpful to you

The ASUS monitoring system for the motherboard is reporting that the cpu fan is inoperable and that is shutting down my computer

Try to replace your CPU Fan. And also check your power supply if it still supplies the correct voltage your motherboard needs.

ASUS P5Q3 with Xeon CPU

Yes, it will work. However it depends on which one you buy. Here's one that will work with that particular motherboard.

First, visit this website. Now search for, "Xeon" (Without the quotes, though). Click the second result on the list, which should be the, "Intel Xeon E3110 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E3110 - Retail." That processor is a 45NM LGA-775 processor, which Asus claims that motherboard can support 45NM LGA-775 processor.

Let me know if I can assist you further, or if I need to explain anything in more detail. If this solves your question, please rate the solution.
