    Default What did I kill?

    If you follow my P180 project then you're already know what happened to my 1k PSU. It burned out due to coolant leakage. I cut off its power durring the fireworks and smoke.:mad:

    I've ordered another PSU but I won't see it sometime next week. Today I decided to take the Corsair 750w for the P180 project and hooked it up to the i7 rig to check if everything working or not?

    Hooked it up, mobo light came on (that's a good sign), crossed my fingers and push the power button. NOTHING happens, it won't pwr on or no beeping noises. However the fan and mobo's SB light did one blink at everytime I push pwr button.

    I did remove the CPU and tried to pwr the mobo to see what happen? If there are no CPU and the mobo working then it will beeps right? NO BEEP, the same behavior as before.

    I also did the same thing with two 4870s seperately and NO BEEP, the same thing, the lights just do one blink.

    I also tried to clear CMOS, removed battery, memory, every tricks in the book I known of. NO LUCK.

    So what do you guys think, which component did I kill beside the PSU?

    The problem is I can't check the mobo or CPU by swapping part method. I just can't go out and buy another mobo and hope to god it was the board or via versa to the CPU.

    Do faulty beeping noise only happens to particular model/brand or with every mobo & PSU?

    i'm not sure but the mobo should notify you that no cpu is installed with a series of beeps. its possibly the mobo that is killed. i'm just guessing.

    if you know anyone around your area that's willing to troubleshoot with you using their parts. its the cheapest way to check.(especially the other components)

    else you may have to prepare for a replacement board :P. then if you get it and it turns out some of the other components are burnt out you will have to wait for shipping again and the project gets postponed longer.

    basically the damage is done and now you have to figure out whats salvageable.

    I think the mobo as well, that's why I pulled out the CPU to see if the board can post or not. I can test the video cards when I have P180 project all together. The only thing I can't really check is the CPU, I don't want to buy a new board and find out the CPU die too. If that the case I'm rather not do the replacement.

    BTW, I can't even RMA the mobo either because I did a little mod to its heatsink (painted). I never expect the board will die in this kind of accident.

    Every mother board that I know of will give off the audible beeps for errors when posting. It definately looks like it is fried.

    Best of luck I would not wish this on anyone! Tell me have you got the leak fixed before you try to rebuild? Best of luck with it.

    Asus one piece heatpipe, I don't think you can purchase the replacement.

    I think when the PSU was sparking cause a abnormal current to the mobo and fired something on the board. There were no leaked coolant on the mobo, only the PSU.

    What happen was my rad fans rattling so I tighten them, the screws a bit tad longer than stock screws and it punched the rad. I didn't notice the leaks until I turned the comp that is when the pressure build up then the leak start. It's dripped right onto the PSU (at bottom case).

    Not sure during the course of the PSU shorting did it somehow affect the motherboard as well?

    I'd be leaning towards a mobo that was shorted during the process when the PSU got killed as well

    I'm wondering that as well.

    The PSU have a shortage circuit protector built in, what really happend was the PSU or mobo restart the system during the shortage. So the systems booted up again and the PSU sparking for the second time and all this happend pretty quickly and then I shut down the power bar right away.

    My best guess is the PSU over voltage the mobo during the shortage and fired it.

    Can you remove that paint on the heatsink? with paint stripper or something?
    i would do everything i know to get the mobo RMA'ed

    but a last ditch effort would be to borrow the heatsink from someone who is kind enough to lend it to you and do a RMA then once the new board is back return the Heatsink to that person then reinstall the painted heatsink ?

    I think that would be a well worth effort then to just throw the board into the bin ?

    First thing I gotta to locate the invoice then I will figure out how to remove the paint the heatsink fins, especially between the fins. See pic.
    If I can remove them without any traces of painting then I will RMA it, this is going to be tought. I'll try with paint stripper then pressure wash it, hope it works.

    Unfortunately I don't know any body that have P6T board.

    Oh...one more thing I almost forgot.
    There are die electric grease in the CPU socket ....LOL...it's from the TEC project...damn it too many edvident of modding.

    I guess that's an expensive risk I took when I decided to do all that mods.
    Well guys...no one else to blame but myself. I'm going to sit in the corner and mobbing now.

    Jasus Lads whats with the equipment there??? is it that time of the year that everything fails or what??

    With that RMA Deton it will be tricky beacuse of that grease.... Every company as a first thing they do is to take the hardware under specific x-ray (dont know how exactly its called) and scan it for any water/miosture signs.....

    With that RMA Deton it will be tricky beacuse of that grease.... Every company as a first thing they do is to take the hardware under specific x-ray (dont know how exactly its called) and scan it for any water/miosture signs.....
    This is a case of black cat, when its goes wrong then everything go:confused:
    Just a darn screw cost me a fortune.
    Yup...they will let you RMA it but they will inspect the hardware to determine the causes, only nature cause will be approved to send you the replacement.

    I think I'm out of luck this time around, it's pretty very hard to remove the paint between th heatsink fins or the grease off the socket. Also the blue design shield around the fins, it's very hard to take it off without any sign off the removal. So no way I can use paint stripper around it or the paint will come off too .

    A 1K PSU and mobo (hope nothing else) cost me over 5 Cannuck bills. It's look like I'm going to put i7 rig to bed for awhile before I can resurrect it.

    Default Yippyyyyy

    First was the bad news and now is the good news.
    So I didn't fire the mobo or anything other components, it was only the PSU...whew!

    No problem with the new Envermax Evo, I think the Corsair 750w crapped out on me when I tested, gotta investivating on this unit next.
