    I recommend using a keyboard with worn off keys- it's good practice...

    I miss my space bar :(

    Still waiting on motherboard and ODD, haven't updated the thread cause obv no one takes notice of my posts and doesn't know my mobo has bit the dust and my rig is incapacitated :cry:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=145462

    I will try and post pic's on the Mrs laptop this week, would be nice to have the board here by then so I have everything before I start posting pics.

    Anyways my mobo is being sent off to ebuyer for RMA, on a plus note I reckon I could get 150-160 for my i7 860 on the bay, and being as ebuyer don't stock my mobo I will be able to get another to the same value meaning i5 2500k and 1155 mobo upgrade for free :D

    ninja edit: freedom I would love the HSF man and its a great contribution!!!

    I'm really looking forward to this but I might miss the big day, maybe! :(

    I'm moving down to my partners this weekend, so I will be starting my new job monday coming and I'll also be sorting out a good few things concerning moving my things, I'll more than likely be offline for an unknown time :( -- We're working on looking at a house aswell as we've been offered a house though Laura will be the one doing the viewing :)

    I'm really greatful for the handout Freedom aswell, as with everyone else, I'm still really overwhelmed with happiness on the fact that everyone is chipping in with whatever way they can and it's amazing!

    If there's one thing I love about people in general, it's the fact that how well people work together when they have similar goals they share, once the ball gets rolling the motivation flows and they're like a steam train that won't be stopped! :toast:

    I hope everyone is doing great and taking good care of themselves!

    Did you guys get a motherboard? I see my name still on the front page and will still ship if the other didn't pan out.

    Yes, he was a cool presence in this community, it does suck. :( These guys are doing a righteous thing. :toast:

    This is the first I have heard of the news about MKMods and I am deeply saddended by it. I didn't know him that well but I purchaced some things from him years ago and he was kind enough to ship them to the UK for me and we had a few pelasant conversations. He was even the first person I added as a friend on TPU. I wish I could help by donating something but finances do not allow it atm and I don't have any spare gear. I am thankful that I am part of such an amazing and generous community. The generosity of the TPU community never ceases to amaze me and I hope to still be posting here for many years to come! Long live TPU!

    Ah, but do you recognize the serial number? Or perhaps the paper label stuck to it? ;)

    Nope, that one was donated by KieX; the one you sold me's still here, awaiting a new life in a RAID array :p

    Looks like a Maxtor logo on the HDD, ignore the HD103SJ label...

    It is a SATA Maxtor DM10 300GB. The Samsung HDD packaging is from a CPU Moonpig traded with me. Sorry for the confusion.

    Urgent update

    So guys, I have an update, I received the board from huskie this week and finally got time to throw everything in the case tonight and fire the rig up.

    Bad news, I am getting no post, now here is the symptoms:

    I think the board may not be working. It powers up and the GPU and CPU fans spin for about 10 secs, go off then come back on and stay on, however....

    There is no post and no beeps.

    The problem is I have tried 4 sticks of ram one at a time in different slots, tried 2 gpu's, tried no ram, no HDD nothing but the CPU, ATX 24pin and CPU 8 pin plugged in and can't get a post or any beeps whatsoever out of it. Also tried clearing CMOS to no avail.

    Am stumped atm as I don't have another LGA 775 CPU and mobo to properly diagnose, though from the no beeps even with no RAM plugged in, when in this case it should beep (yes speaker was plugged in) it says to me it's the board.

    So that is the current status and it's a shame right now as I have a nearly complete rig to finish this awesome gesture and do something really special with you guys on TPU.

    I need an LGA 775 board, even if you can't donate it, I need one to properly troubleshoot this issue and make sure it is indeed the motherboard, if anyone from the UK has one they can donate or lend me for a week I would be really grateful.

    Alternatively if you have any suggestions that I seem to have missed then please let me know though I think I have covered all the bases considering I don't have any spare parts to be 100%

    The system is powering on as I mentioned and the CPU/GPU fans are running with no issues, if it can power those it is powering the mobo and having no beeps at all even with no RAM seems suspecvt to me, I will swap the PSU out tomorrow, though I don't think that is the cause tbh

    You have the standoffs in right?, also make sure all the heatsinks are attached well to the CPU, GPU etc.
