    Default Motherboard shut Off after 30 sec.

    Hello ASRock Techs,

    I have just purchased an ASRock C216 WS and I have had a lot of frustration in trying to build my new server. This last issue is quit confusing and I hope someone might have a solution for me. I have not loaded an OS yet because I need the system to stay running long enough to complete the installation. I am trying to get the system to boot from the USB but the motherboard keeps shutting off after 30 Sec. while I am in the BIOS trying to make sure that all of my setting are Correct.

    By the way, I have tested the boot-able USB with another computer and it works just fine and according to the BIOS is recognizes the USB and HDD.

    Any suggestions?

    Below is my hardware list:

    Motherboard: ASRock C216 WS
    Processor: Intel E3-1230 v2
    Memory: Kingston 8GB - KVR1333D3E9S/8G
    Video: PNY - Geforce GT 610
    HDD: Seagate 1TB - ST1000DM003

    Thank you if you can assist,

    TMH (A frustrated customer )

    Hmm, the BIOS usually stresses the CPU. So I'd check that the HS/F is squarely mounted and also that it's connected properly to CPU_FAN1 or CPU_FAN2.

    You might enter the BIOS to the page that shows cpu temps and see what temps it's going up to. Sounds like it might be shutting down due to temp.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.
