Perry's Build

RE: Perry's Build
They are in direct contact. There were no washers with the motherboard or the case. I do have some Sticky Rubber rings, but they are to big for the screw heads to even hit, so I didn't put them on there.

While taking a break, and read my manual, I am using 'cd rom' screws to hold my motherboard in. Maybe I'll try the 'motherboard' screws. Sad
Also, those washers I was talking about are refered to as 'prevents vibration from the fan' and there is only 8 of them (as listed) and 9 MB screw holes.

Bad idea, paper flames way too easily Wink

Perrywinkle, when you screw your motherboard on the standoffs, are you using washers under the screws or are the screws in direct contact with the motherboard?

You need 233C before paper catches on fire.

RE: Perry's Build
Try those motherboard screws. Otherwise get some washers, like these:

If the head of the screw is large enough that after tightening the screw the head might make contact with the circuitry on the motherboard, you must use a plastic or paper washer under the screw head to prevent accidentally shorting out the motherboard.

We'll get your PC working Wink

*Forgot to mention, you want the washers between the motherboard and the screws, if that wasn't clear.

RE: Perry's Build
Correct screws in now, 2mm length diffrence, no diffrence to the problem yet. I'm going to try to get ahold of a friend and see if he has any washer I can use. Trying to find misc. computer stuff is a pain for me. There are no good 'pc' stores around me. (Microcenter over an hour drive.)

*Took the screws out and tried loading w/o them holding it in place. (Case laying on side of course.) Same issue. The MB is very close to touching the case on 3 of 4 sides. Also, Video card does feel weird mounting wise when I put it in. Can move a lot and have to fight with the area by the back slot to make it fit.

RE: Perry's Build
Ok, got it all figured out. I unplugged all the Front Panel plug-ins and it booted. So looked at those again and I had a USB plug-in, in the wrong spot. Fixed, and fixed. (I blame it on the illustrations in the manual.) I was looking at the nice pictures instead of reading the nice words. So its booting up every time now and things seem to be good. Windows scored it 7.5 CPU and RAM, and 7.1 Storage. 1.0 on video and 3D, I need to get those drivers installed now I guess.

Thanks for all the help guys. Smile

The case being black on the interior makes it look at least 6 times more badass. You're gonna love that 6870. It flys.

RE: Perry's Build
If I had Crysis, I would try it. Smile

I was a little bummed with the cables. The top feed through is completely used by the case panel cords so I couldn't feed anything more into it. and then everything plugs at the bottom and became a mess of wires.

RE: Perry's Build
Glad to hear that you've figured out the issue.

Yeah, WEI scores for Video and 3D will be better once you update the video card drivers.

Thanks for the nice pictures and enjoy your new Gaming PC Big Grin
