Question about SuperMicro X7DAL-E Motherboard
Please HELP! I've tested PSU and already RMA'd board once. All I get is a weak "erk" when I try to power up the system.
X7DAL-E-O Dual LGA 771 board
4 GB Crucial FB PC2-5300 RAM
Apevia 600W "Dark Side" PSU
Tagan A+ Monolith Full Tower case
All components are brand new. Only fly in the ointment that I can think of unless somehow I missed a jumper is that the PSU only has one 8 pin 12V connector for CPUs (Required according to documentation). Board has 8 pin socket for CPUs and additional 4.pin 12V for PCIe slots but docs don't say it is required. If it is, where do I even find a PSU that has both?!?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
I am using the same board with a PC Power and Cooling 1 K Watt power supply which is a little high in price and no longer available. I have been using PC Power and Cooling since the 1980’s and have had few problems and they have always kept up with the latest power standards if not exceeding them. The replacement power supply has even more power.
However, you can find adapters to use 4 pin IDE drive Power connectors for the 4 and 8 pin power connectors. PC Power and Cooling and Cables To Go both sell them. That is the cheapest fix for you but I would also use the PCI-E auxiliary power connector.
