    New build help!!!

    Hey guys just built my PC tonight...

    i5 2500k sandy
    titan fenrir
    GTX 480
    700w PSU
    Asus p86p67 mobo with bios 1103


    now the problem is that when i boot up, first of all it starts then stops then starts up properly

    2nd problem.. there are white flickering all over the screen as soon as it starts up properly and says f1 overclock failed, i have turned turbo off and also set the ram to 1600 MHZ and also 1300 to see if it was that.. the DRAM voltage is 1.5.. i have also tried one stick of ram and in different slots

    any guesses?

    Re: New build help!!!

    screen flickering can be graphics card problem:
    have you installed the drivers for your card that came with it
    have you updated these?
    do you have another graphics card you could swap in to see if that helps or not?

    Re: New build help!!!

    i cant get anywhere to even install the operating system because of the little white flickering...

    basically when i press the power button it starts up for a few seconds then stops then starts up properly... but i have heard that this is an issue with the bios needing to be updated

    Re: New build help!!!

    Have you plugged in both the PCI-E power plugs into the graphics card?
    Whenever something like this happens, it can be a good idea to unplug everything, then re-seat everything again. In doing so, only plug in the minimum required to get working (eg only 1 piece of RAM rather than all, no extra cards, no un-needed USB gubbins etc).
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.

    Re: New build help!!!

    Regarding the double start-up, I wouldn't worry about it. Many boards do it - some only when overclocking and others all the time. It's not necessarily a problem, it's just the way the board and/or BIOS was designed.
