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.

Hi Badboy !

you can type the name on the motherboard on Google e.g : asrock m3a ucc pdf

You will find the pdf manual right away. On the 20 th page you will see how to connect the HDD led .I think the case should only have one led for the HDD if it has 2 leds just ignore it because the motherboard has only one place where you can put that led. Be careful and good luck !

There is a verity of things you can check & or replace. You mentioned the CPU fan is not turning. This is very very important.
This suggests possible CPU fan is defective. Average life span for a CPU fan is 5 years or 50,000 hours. Your MB uses Intel PGA socket 478. For a replacement heatsink & fan assembly open the link provided;
http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-A4012-Cooler-Intel-Socket/dp/B000FEW8JW/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_0
A new heatsink assembly will come with a new fan attached to the heatsink.
It should also come with new thermal past or thermal tape attached to the bottom of the heatsink assembly.

As to the front panel LED light blinking continuously.
If the LED light is red in color this means your primary hard disk drive is trying to load windows.
My suggestion is for you to replace the CPU heatsink assembly first.
No need to remove the CPU from its socket at this time.
If you never replaced the Heatsink & fan assembly watch the video included below;

Once completed your system should function correctly.
If it doesn't, post you’re finding here & I'll help you further.

Instead of connecting you're fans to a single 4-pin molex on the power supply why not use the motherboards 3-pin molex fan connectors coming off the motherboard. See page 2.2.4 in your manual. Though I agree you should still be able to run 4-pin molex connectors to all fans off of you're PS. Allow the mother board to supply the 12v current to you're extra fans.
CHA_FAN1
CHA_FAN2
CHA_FAN3
CHA_FAN4
You're motherboard will supply the needed power. Less wiring will also allow better air flow through out the system and less strain to the fan controllers.

Motherboard problem..


It sounds like the front panel wire has either come loose from the motherboard or is plugged into the wrong spot. Recheck the motherboard to see if the wires are in the right place & not loose. Hope this helps.

Many motherboards take two temps. Motherboard temp and CPU temp. CPU temp is the most common problem. Check there first. You might need a faster fan or a larger heat sink. Also make sure the pc isn't enclosed in anything. It needs to have air moving around it on both main sides, the front and back.

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

Hi Jharper91,
There is no easy way to explain how to remove your Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with out some pictures. Intel does have a site showing how to install. Once you understand how to install you'll be able to remove. Try looking through this link from Intel.
http://www.intel.com/support/processors/pentium4/sb/CS-007988.htm
Newer Intel Pentium 4 processor use 4 plastic pins to hold the retention clip onto the board. To remove them you will need to lift the motherboard out of the case. Using a needle-nose plier to squeeze the plastic ends together & pop-out the plastic pins.

The north bridge can be glued onto the chipset & have
2 pins bent inwards on themselves. Bend them in and push them through. If glued, use a hair dryer to heat the cooler, thus making the glue soften. Each board can & do use different methods to hold coolers to the chipset's. You might want to keep in mind the total db of adding a bunch of coolers. It may get very noisy for you.

I hope you find this helpful.
If I can help you more just post you're question's here.
Good Luck Jharper91!

Trobleshooting


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.

Ventilator of the microprocessor


Most modern motherboards include temperature sensors that can speed up or slow down the CPU fan depending on how hot the processor is. If its noisier than it was originally it could be: -inefficient cooling caused by dust accumulating in the heatsink under the fan. -could be heat buildup in the case itself causing the processor to run hot. -could just be noisier because the bearing in the CPU fan is wearing out. -Make sure the CPU fan power cable is plugged into the proper socket. If it?s not the motherboard cannot control the speed. Let us know if you have any other questions.

D915GAG problem


this cant have anything to do with only replacing a cooler, unless when fitting it you have caused some sort of stress damage to the motherboard. Check all seatings of ram, graphics card and power connections in case they have been dislodged. I assume you have tried resetting the cmos settings in case there is a corrupt bios for some reason. The only other check is to see if the cooler is starting up straight away, as the processor may be shutting down if there is no fan running, or the motherboard is reading the temperatures incorrectly and not enabling you to boot.
