Question about ASUS AI Lifestyle P5N32-E SLI (P5N32-E-SLI-GREEN) Motherboard
I have following config with that motherboard: Intel E8400, CoolIt Freezone CPU cooler, DDR2 800 2 gigs, 2x 8600GT in SLI mode and 500W EarthMate PSU. After installing cooler for first time was not satisfied with CPU temps, and decided to change thermal compound to MX2. Took out and cleaned CPU, and installed it back. Put a bit much of paste on CPU and reinstalled the cooler. Now, when turning computer on I got no boot no screen and annoying continuous beep going for about 15 sec then pause then resuming for another 15 sec and of and on in cycles. Power is working, mobo led is on, all fans are working, cooler is working. Tried to clear CMOS with jumper - no luck. Would appreciate any help, comments. Very desperate.
I would take the CPU back out. Remove the excess thermal compound, you should only use a very thin layer. Make sure the CPU is oriented and seated properly.
