Hello everyone, I am recently having a problem with my motherboard. I recently bought a rampage iii formula from Taobao.
When I received it, I put it into my computer case and tried to fire it up. However, I was no luck to make it post. All the fans spined vigorously. I could neither turn it off by the front panel switch nor the switch on the board. I called the seller to come to my place for a check. After a check, he said that some needles of the cpu base was bent. Some of them were even broken. He said he would sent me another board to me. Therefore I waited for the bord for about 4 days.
I received the board and took it out for a deep check. I tried to fire it up but I failed. I called him again and he said he has checked that the board can post. He told me to buy a debug card and tell him what was shown on it. It showed "d000, 3687, 1d60". He said that it is a ram issue and told me to move the ram to another sockets but it could not be helped. I removed all the ram on the board and turn it on but also 1d60. Sometimes it the debug code are "d000, f687, 3fe7". It showed code 0000 when I changed the psu. When I changed back my psu, I saw something strange. When I pressed the start button, the cpu q-led lit up once and then off in one second. The seller said that there may be problem with my cpu. I bought an i7-930 for about rmb460 and use it to boot instead of using my l5639. However, the same issue appeared. I told him that it was not the cpu problem. I asked him whether he checked that it is work or not. He told me that it is worked and he upgraded the bios to 0903 by using asus bios updater. I took the board to someone for refreshing the bios. It didn't work even I reflashed the first release bios. I was frustrated by it. I checked the voltage by probelt. All the voltage are normal except the cpu one. I think that it must be the problem.
Can anyone answer me what was happened with my board?
