Avenger411Also psu has always worked flawlessly for the last 5-6years (old rampage v build) it was working fine 2hourd before the swap.
Avenger411@cool_gtxImpossible since getting second psu in 2hours. As for the « behind the mobo » i’ll check that out for sure. I’ll start by just ghetto switch the psu just to see if it fixes the problem. If not i’ll have to mount it on the provided stand (which is very nice) if it STILL doesn’t work i’ll be all out of options besides thinking dead cpu/mobo or possible bent cpu pins but i don’t think it would do that. Anyways still at job i’ll test a little tonight if i have the time!Edit : could a possible loose standoff cause a short ? When i removed the rampage v i had a standoff that was stuck with the screw. Had to use tools to hold the standoff while unscrewing. Decided to use the standoff for the x299 dark anyways since i didn’t have a replacement on hand.
Avenger411Third follow up.It appears the cable is NOT the issue but the psu seems to have died during the swap.... What are the odds... Proof in video.https://youtu.be/qiLSHePKMNI
Avenger411Last test i could try is to mount the board on the provided test bench and see if it works. If it does what would it mean ? A short somewhere with the case ?
Avenger411I went ahead to Canada computers and borrowed an EVGA 850 GQ to test my stuff.
Avenger411Yea saw that but that doesn’t tell me much. « Reserved for future ami postcodes » there’s no hint. Tried bios 1-2-3 clear cmos on each. Tried removing gpu too. Nothing seems to work.
Avenger411This board hasn’t even seen bios once. And it’s a 10900x installed.
