    Asus P5N-E SLI Motherboard help

    Can anyone help

    with my Asus P5N-E SLI Motherboard

    when connected up the motherboard with thermaltake psu with both the 4 pin and 24 power conector it will not start up but if i take out the 4 pin and only have the 24 pin power plug it powers up does not cut out like others have after 15 seconds. could this be that the northbridge chip burnt out or could it be anthing else

    any ideas before i chuck out the board

    cheers

    carl

    TBH, at the time, reviews for it were pretty decent, had good OC potential and SLi.

    But it just broke, because nVidia doesnt know what quality control is.

    Yeah, the board itself was good, but the chipset was ****E (pardon my french).

    It's not really just nvidia's fault either. Asus' AMD and intel chipset boards of that era weren't much better.
