Trying to rebuild my NK4 system from this build since it looked like my DQ77KB died.
Since sourcing a replacement DQ77KB was getting ridiculously pricey, I decided to make the jump to micro-ATX:
|Case||Fractal Design Node 804||$109.99||NewEgg|
|Motherboard||Intel DQ77MK Desktop Motherboard Socket LGA1155 Q77 MicroATX||$58.00||Ebay|
|CPU||Intel Core i5-3570S - 3.1 GHz SR0T9||$29.99 (previous bild)||Ebay|
|Memory||16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 UDIMM 8GB 2RX8 PC3 12800U Dual Rank Non-ECC Unbuffered 1.5V||$64.99||Amazon|
|CPU Cooler||Thermaltake Gravity i2||$11.99 (previous build)||Amazon|
|Cables||2x CableCreation Mini SAS Male to 4 SATA Female||$14.99||Amazon|
|HD Controller||LSI SAS9201-8i||$26.00||Ebay|
|HDD||(4) 10TB SATA||(previous build)||Assorted|
|HDD||(3) 8TB SATA||(previous build)||Assorted|
|SSD||Some 256GB SSD||(previous build)||Amazon|
|PSU||EVGA 500 BQ, 80+ BRONZE 500W||$44.99||EVGA B-stock|
So everything powers up, I get LED lights on the motherboard and the blue ME light goes on, the fans are working and the power light on the case is on, but it won’t post. Initially I wasn’t getting any video at all via the mini-DP, but I got a DVI-D to HDMI adapter and now can at least see the BIOS boot screen, but it never gets past this, nor does it allow me to F2/F10:
Things I’ve tried:
- No cards, no SATA connections, nothing in USB – same result
- No memory – gives 3 beep memory error, so that sounds right
- Just one DIMM – same result stuck on BIOS screen
- Pulling the CMOS battery – same result
- Using the jumper to set BIOS into configuration mode – same result
I don’t really know what else to try here, maybe my old CPU was bad too and I need to replace it as well?
Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated.
