    Unhappy Asrock x79 extreme9b, Intel 3930k build on hold.. Help please?

    I am building a new computer

    I have carefully put this together. I was grounded, wore latex gloves, and took all regular build precautions... I've built many systems before, mostly AMD's, and am not unfamiliar with building systems.
    The first time I assembled this group of components all went smoothly. when it came time to hit the power key... Nothing..... No power indicators on the MB, just a faint click out of the power supply... I tested the PSU and found it to be DOA, so that was returned and a new one sent overnight. (Thank you Newegg.) I installed that saw that there was power to the MB and went to boot... and got a code 19... I removed all of the power supply (and SATA) connections except to the motherboard, removed Video Card and Sound Card, reset the BIOS and rebooted... Code 19.... Out with the RAM, reset BIOS and rebooted, code 19 followed by code 53.... OK, Tested RAM in another computer, RAM OK... retested new PSU in the other computer and found it to be running fine. SOOOO, one might deduce that it was either the MB, or a bad chip.... OR, that somehow I was connecting the power leads wrong..... RMA MB and CPU.... Read the manual like a fiend, look online for other similar problems... Read PSU info one more time... New MB and CPU arrive.... Again, reassemble components... Looking forward to a fantastic boot and a NEW computer!!!..... Push button... NOTHING!!!!! fans come on for 1 second, then click... Power off!!!!

    HELP!!!! I have $3,000 worth of dead computer here...

    My wife is going to kill me

    Ive had a problem on an asrock..my b3 mbrd, in the sig below..didnt work first time even tho the previous b2 board did..
    Lots of different error codes but d6 was the most prevalent.
    Since youve done them before.put it together as basically as possible.
    Physically check all the basics agaain.if it has one of those new HD8+4 pin cpu supplies ,even if you have the extra 4 pin on your psu, just connect the 8 pin to the mbrd
    Even do it outside the pc case with the mbrd on a piece of cardboard or similar. Use ps2 mouse n keyboard if you have them,1 stick of ram..use the cpu gx if it has it,no sound card and so on.

    Then if you get "its alive" check things like are the memory speed/timings/voltage detected correctly.If they are are the 4 sticks "matched or 2 matched pairs and adjust accordingly..
    If you had just hdd connected,try connecting both the hdd and the ssd and see if they are recognised.. etc.

    My "problem" since i have no seperate gx was getting the gx card to fire up..it consisted of lots of reseating clearing cmos,,trying the two gx outputs,not the hdmi, and eventually it worked on the lower of the two when i powered on the monitor from cold when the pc initiated posting..No problems since despite full stripdowns etc.I only had the one gx card at the time.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    I had the same problem with one of my older ram kits. I found the only way to post was to use only 1 stick of ram in the far left slot. Once in the bios I bumped the cpu vtt voltage up a notch. Rebooted with the other ram sticks in just fine. Your ram has xmp profiles that should make it super easy to setup. Good luck getting it running.

    I double checked the compatibility of your memory, and it is listed in your board compatibility list. But some of the reviews by users on a retailer's website indicate that it's not a given that a board/CPU pair will work with this memory at it's full speed. For example:

    Unable to post with ram set at 2400 on an ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011 mobo (I7 3930K). This ram is on the motherboards verified list for 2400 oc. Ram operates fine at 2133.

    And another:

    After one month, the CPU i7-3930K died. Intel technical support told me that this memory is not compatible. The CPU support only DDR3 1600 and 1.5 volt by warranty. Eventually they agree to replace CPU, but only if I will use supported type of memory. So I bought DDR3 1600, 1.5 volt set and using it now.

    My point is not every CPU (which contains the memory controller) will be able to run OC'd memory, and anything above 1600 is considered OC.

    As blindshot said, use one or two DIMMs at first so you can get into the UEFI and see what the default speed is, and if it is over 1600, set it to 1600 until you can start the board and install the OS. Let it be stable first and then try to OC.

    Another potential problem is to much pressure on the CPU from the CPU cooler. That causes misalignment of the contacts in the socket with the CPU. Back off on the pressure and it may POST fine.

    The Gskill ram will boot at jedec specs 1600mhz @1.50v. The only way to run the 2400 is by loading the xmp overclocking profile. http://valid.canardpc.com/2654818 2133 ram running at 2400 using auto settings.

    Well I got it up and running..... All is good EXCEPT that my WD Storage drive isn't being picked up by the OS? I'm not sure what to do about that one yet....

    Also, My oversight, The damned video card covers the PCI 1x slot so I can't use my sound card.... I posted that one... If you have any Ideas there that would be great. Currently my video card is in slot 4 until I find out if it is running at 16x, or some lower speed like 8x...

    What did it take to get into the bios? I own a WD 3tb my book drive and hate it! It causes my system to be very slow booting up.
