    And turn off the PSU switch for a minute or so, then back on and then try to boot again.

    Yup, I used the CMOS reset switch on the back of the board.

    I already tried pulling off the Antec WC kit and just sitting my spare Gaia on top. No luck.

    Also, no luck with the other battery :(


    Something is happening, at least the Gaia is getting slightly warm. No display/beeps or anything--board still won't stay on.

    EDIT: Looking at the manual, the POST code I'm getting says "Program the peripheral parameters. Enable/Disable NMI as selected". I wonder what that means :confused:

    P55 Extreme, right? Did you move the ram and are you using the correct slots?

    This is the P55 Extreme from you, yes. The RAM is the same G.SKILL kit I purchased from you, in the two slots closest to the CPU. This all started when I tried to transport the system out of the case :(

    You need to use the white slots only for 2 dimms.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    A 7970 is a brute at these things. And if you use the script you can set it to do up to 4 at a time. :toast:

    Also Ion you made need to let it set overnight. I have heard of a few Intel systems that have done just what yours is doing. The people let them sit iver night unplugedd and came back the next day and it booted like nothing was ever wrong with it.

    I've used these two before with no issues--but I'll try it like that and see what I can accomplish.

    I noticed that with Buck's EVGA P55 FTW as well. Seems that LGA 1156 is designed to use slots 2 and 4 (from closest to farthest from CPU) first, as 1 and 3 don't POST.

    You can buy me a round anytime.:toast: Remember that I had a long love affair with three of the same model Mobo. Better yet, you are running in dual channel mode now(maybe better production).

    When my son gave me back the P55 micro/i7-870, I put the ram in the wrong slots:banghead: and was cursing the board for about an hour until i pulled up the manual:shadedshu

    Here is the i7-860 set up and crunching again:
    [​IMG]
    It was off for more like 3.5 hours than 1, but at least it still works, and I have the AMD X2 assembled in a case. I'll list it on CL tonight and maybe I can sell it soon.



    EDIT: Huge thanks to everyone who helped me! :toast:

    Looks like you need a "guest" case or at least a tech bench

    You know, I'm actually thinking of building a tech bench. I saw a guide on XS, years ago at this point, where someone built a tech bench out of two heavy plastic cutting boards and some metal rods/nuts. It actually looked really sharp, and would certainly be easy to build :toast:

    That or I'll pick up another Source 210 ;)

    So my GTX275(in the i7-870 rig) is outpacing my GTX460? The 275 is only peaking @ 92%. Maybe I should try to double up some work units on it.

    t_ski made a guide or build log for one here somewhere.

    Although you could probably make a real nice one with a milk crate and a mobo tray ;)

    As I said, these GTX460s just don't do that good of a job. I'm really quite surprised. As in the GTX470 has 33% more shaders, clocked lower, and still does ~twice the PPD.
    I could, but if I'm going to make one, I'm going to make one that looks nice. And I think I could do that without too much trouble and get a good result. I'll see if I can find his thread :toast:
