Question about Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 AMD Phenom Socket AM2+ 3000 MHz Motherboard Retail

1 Answer

Troubleshooting Thanks for your response. I have a Thermaltake case with a 14cm front fan, a 12cm back and one 90mm fan on the window. As you can understand there is enough airflow but i had checked through the BIOS that the CPU temperature goes at 45 dec. . You think that's a problem ?

No, that's definately not the problem. The airflow seems to be adequate and the temp reading is effecient enough. Ideally, te the idle temperature of any AMD processor should not exceed 30 deg celcius. Look in the bios and make sure your speed is set for clocking to match the ram. Other than that, instead of hardware, I'd look into software config. IE, spyware/adware, Viruses. Beyond that, I will need system specifics in order to help further.

You need to look in the handbook that cam with your motherboard for a section labeled 'Connectors' or possibly 'Connections'. There will be one USB 2.0 type prong on the motherboard that is designated for case connections [Power LED, mini-speaker, etc.]. The manual for the motherboard will indicate what order and where on the motherboard your connectors should go.
Good luck with your build. :]

How do I open the front plate of the Orion 201 tower to replace the 90mm LED case fan?

There are plastic tabs on the inside of the case (near the front) that need to be "popped out" in order to remove the front panel.

Gaming case


I have seen the ThermalTake V3 Black Edition case, and worked with it.

The tool less option for the Optical Drives and Hard Drives were only adequate enough for 3 Drives. They were also a little loose, so if you are going to get the case, I suggest you put screws in the Drives instead.

The case only comes with one fan, so for overclocking or using a powerful Graphic Card, may require you to get additional fans (you can add up to 3 additional fans). In order to achieve good airflow you must have at least 2 fans (one in the front, and one in the back of the case). Overall the case is decent, but a little flimsy. I wouldn't carry it around for LAN Parties or such, this is just a cheap regular case.

If you are looking at other Midtower Cases, I suggest the RaidMax Smilodon, the fans come equipped and the tool less features are a lot better. It also has a side window and Video Card locking mechanism.

Tyan S5396 and Thermaltake 1500W

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

I had the same issue with my AMD Athlon 3800+ dual core. I found that I wasn't getting enough airflow to keep the system and processor cool. You may want to check the heatsink and fan rating for your processor unless it was sold in a bundle. Also, On AMD's of such power, they tend to run hot if overclocked. Look into, if you haven't already 2 case fans to go along with the processor fans. I recommend a 90mm in front and a 80mm in the rear of the case. If this doesn't help, let me know.

How to install it.. It just won't fit

PSU | Standard ATX PSII

That is what is listed on NCIXUSA.Com. If this PSU you are talking about is a "Standard ATX PSII" PSU, then it will mount the same way many other mower supplies mount. If not, it should still fit, but its not supported. You should always do research before your purchase, and Im sure Thermaltake could have provided the answer and still can tell you how to mount it.
