Question about Intel DG31PR Motherboard
Thanks for your thorough reply, map9966.
I just bought this board and a compatible CPU, and I also cannot boot, though I do have fan and LED power.
My power supply does have the 2x2 connector for the CPU, but it has only a 10x2 main connector, not the 12x2. The user manual says the board's 12x2 socket is backwards-compatible, but I wonder if that's true.
I've removed everything else from the machine now, read through the manual, and triple-checked all the connections. Do you think I need to get a replacement power supply with a 12x2 connector.
Hi chweb1230, to answer you're question. Yes, I would suggest getting a power supply that would comply with the ATX main 24-pin power connector. The term backwards compatible references to boards that require less voltage, Ex; (A 20-pin main power board). If you intend to run serial ATA SATA drives & a PCI-E graphic card. The newer power supply will handle future upgrades. Suggest a 500 to 550W PSU should handle just about anything you add to the board.
