    Default EX58 UD5 Clicks

    Hello,

    I have an EX-58 UD5 board with i7 920 CPU D0 stepping and gigabyte ATI 4890
    I overclocked the CPU to 3,8Ghz

    When I power on the computer, the video card fan starts at maximum speed (that's normal), then it spins down to normal speed.
    After this I hear 3 clicks from inside the case (probably the case speaker), then the video card fan boosts up to maximum speed again, twice, and also i can hear 2 more clicks.

    After this the computer starts and works normally.
    Is somebody experiencing the same issue. Is it normal and if not is there a solution to this? (Maybe wrong voltage settings?)

    And one more thing. Where can I find a guide or something to translate the numbers from the POST LCD display?

    I've heard of people having this issue with the x58 boards apparently going through 2 or 3 cycles on power startup. Mine doesn't do this so I'm not sure how common this is or if it's a problem really. Does it happen when you come out of S3 or is it a full boot from shutdown it does this? Also I'm wondering if people experience this due to their psu, what psu are you using?

    Thanks for the reply

    This only happens when i do a cold boot. If I do a restart it starts normally.
    I have a 800W Xilence Gaming Edition PSU.

    If I overclock to 3,2Ghz there are only 2 clicks and after, the video card fan spins up to max only once.
    If I don't do overclock there's only one click(which i think is normal) and the system starts normally.

    I think it is normal though my UD4P only goes through the multi clicks after I have made bios changes.

    I do believe it is your case speaker clicking as the board cycles through it's pre-boot tests, can you please remove it to test this theory. I don't use one unless I am having issue or testing something for someone, but I do think I remember it doing some clicks last time I had it in. Let us know, I bet this is it

    I think he's talking about his board power cycling from a cold boot not the mild ringing/squeel from a noisy choke due to c1e, if it was the ringing from c1e he'd hear it all the time while running too, believe me I know.

    no i know what that is,this is different it like pauses for a about 1 or 2 seconds then youll hear a click then it will proccess whatever your running like its waiting for power then the after you hear the click the computer surges and carrys on its some sort of power saving feature

    The click is an electrical relay when it does its own internally controlled power off restart. Its a very electrical/mechanical clunk sound (as opposed to a speaker power click sound).

    For some reason your machine is doing a double boot.

    I occasionally get this double reboot with particular bios's and particular bios settings (ie. hyper threading turned off).

    The source of the clicking in my system is the ATI graphics card. I hear two sets of clicks, one when the ATI diagnostic LED's come on and another two when they go out again. I also hear a single click on power down when the LED's both light then go out as the power is cut by the PSU.

    Not saying that's the source of the clicking in your system but it is in mine. If I use another card, the clicks don't happen. You can test this by unplugging the case speaker if it's separate from the board. With my 4850 in the system and no speaker I still hear the clicks.
