Thread: EX58-DS4 powers up and then turns off after a second

    Default EX58-DS4 powers up and then turns off after a second

    Hi

    I have setup my new computer with an i7 920 on an EX58-DS4 but as I mentioned in the title, upon plugging in the power, the system starts up but then shuts off after a second. The fan on the CPU spins during this time.

    I use a 2x2 12v connector in the top four slots of the CPU power connector (Pins 8,7,4,3 according to the manual) as my PSU (Coolermaster Extreme 650W) only has one 2x2 connector. Could this be causing the problem?

    Full system specs are:

    i7 920
    Gigabyte EX58-DS4
    G.Skill NQ 6G Kit(3x2G) DDR3 1333 (in channels 1,3 and 5)
    inno3d GTX 285 (in PCIe 16x slot)
    Coolermaster Extreme Power Duo 650W
    WD 500GB Green SATA HDD
    Samsung SATA DVD drive

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I assume reading that you cant get into BIOS. Try using one (1) stick of ram to boot. I dont know much about the new I7's but I would uses the 8 pin power connector if possible. you really need to get another PSU to test this as it could be the problem????????????? Try that?

    Yeah I couldn't get into BIOS but eventually by disconnecting everything and re-adding them one by one I determined that the power button was being continually pressed on the case, causing the computer to shutdown. It didn't even cross my mind that the case could be the culprit so I was very much relieved that the problem wasn't something more serious.
