Update; I fixed this issue by replacing the P12V4 from the PCI-E 6pin (+12V & GRND) with a regular 2x molex to 4pin connector. It seems like the PCI-E connector was not suitable :-)
However when it boots I hear a constant beeping in the background.
I have read the technical manual pointing out various beep series, but never the constant beeping. The diagnostic LEDs are however in state Green after doing a Lot of tests.
This thread is considered solved.
I found out that the beeping sound was not a result of the mainboard itself, but the chassis. It's all solved
Thank you anyways!
Hi, same thing just happened to me.
New S5000PSL and new Corsair HX850, but no 2x2pin for 12v supply.
Annoying, since this is non-standard, Intel really should include an adapter in the kit.
Will go to the local PC store tomorrow and look for an adapter plug.
Hello, after reading this thread i thought that my problem will be sorted but I'm still having similar trouble.
My setup is:
4x 2GB PC2 5300 ECC FB hynix
1x xeon 5150 2.66 1333 in primary slot with active heating
two fans - slots 1 and 6
pci-e card in x16 slot
1cd and two hdd in sata
First, after upgrading from s5000pal I realised that motherboard has p12v4 power socket and my 600W does not provide such cord. Without this plugged I'm not getting through post tests. There is green status led and after a while it changes to amber and blue id led turns on.
I tried to use adapter 2x molex to P4 4pin which I had. It still doesn't let me through post tests and I can't reach bios. Motherboard is new. After powering up with P4 plugged in I get power for my cooler on fan1 slot(didn't get that working before) but still no post and after about minute status light goes solid amber and id led solid blue. Also, there lights up solid amber light next to 2cpufan slot. That's strange because I'm not using cpu or fan on this slot.
Anyone can help please?
I just bought this board and I am having difficulty connecting the chassis power switch, power led, etc. I read the intel document for connecting the non-intel chassis(http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-028813.htm). If I read the document correctly, then pin 11 is supposed to be used for connecting power switch. But the cable I have requires two pins. Basically I am just trying to get this machine to power on. I am using a 700Watt OCZ power supply and I was able provide enough power to the board to see the diagnostic LEDs come on and beeps.
Any help is appreciatede. Thanks
Hello, I just bought this system board and I am trying to install it in a non-intel case(Cooler Master 932 HAF). I am having trouble connecting the chassis power switch, power leds, etc. I read the document for non-intel chassis(http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-028813.htm). According to this document, pin 11 should be where I should plug-in the power switch, but my power switch requires at least two pins. Please help. Thanks
