GENEtically Superior: mATX ROG Rampage II GENE Motherboard Delivers Max Performance in Mini Form Factor OC3D Official Press Release logo

ASUS, the world’s leading producer of motherboards, today released the new X58-based ROG (Republic of Gamers) Rampage II GENE in response to overwhelming demand for a mATX gaming and enthusiast motherboard. Hailing from ASUS´ world record-breaking Rampage II lineage, the Rampage II GENE boasts premium features such as MemOK! for worry-free memory upgrades, CPU Level Up for easy system performance boosts, and onboard SupremeFX X-Fi for true-to-life surround sound.

ASUS Rampage II GENEAtomic in Size, Atomic in Power
With the Rampage II GENE, ASUS has masterfully filled the mATX gap in its lauded ROG product line. For the first time, users will be able to harness the full power of the Intel® Core™ i7 processor in a chassis the fraction of the size and weight of an ATX desktop PC. The Rampage II GENE’s awesome combination of overclockability, tweakability and stability enable it to easily outgun other full-sized ATX motherboards.

MemOK! Any Memory is A-Okay!
MemOK! was developed to provide users with a worry-free memory upgrade experience. In the event of a boot failure after installing new RAM, all the user has to do is press an easily accessible button on the motherboard and MemOK! will automatically load the failsafe settings needed to ensure a successful system boot. MemOK! is able to rapidly detect and resolve memory issues—even if bad or unstable memory is used!

Supreme In-game Audio with SupremeFX X-Fi
An onboard SupremeFX X-Fi solution delivers crisp audio and incredibly realistic in-game sound effects. Official EAX sound effects from EAX 1.0 to EAX HD4.0 allow gamers to enjoy total immersion in supported games. X-Fi CMSS3D’s groundbreaking positional audio gives gamers a distinct in-game advantage, while Crystalizer enhances overall audio quality dramatically.

Well you wouldn't be the first :p

Do you have another rig to test the corsair psu in? No sound at all and motherboard working fine with different gpu and psu sounds a lot like a DOD.

EDIT: there's an edit button at the bottom of your post. If it wasn't there everyone would have at least twice the amount of posts they have now :p

Edit2: oh the 550w unit is a bfg. replace(corsair,bfg);

My brothers, but If It's me doing something wrong I wouldn't wanna mess his up :p

So I plugged in the 4pin on the left, 24 pin on the right, and then 6pin on my 9800GT in the 16x PCI slot

If necessary, I'll plug in my old PSU but it's kind of a pain cause I'm slow xD

Actually my old PSU won't support my new graphics card :(

You have on board vga with that board you linked to and pictured mate :)

Try removing the gpu and link directly to the vga ( may need a dvi to vga convertor ... should be one in your gpu box )

22-02-2009, 16:38:12

I'm sorry, what do I do now?
I have a dvi to vga converter I just don't know where I'm plugging this into.

Socket no.11 on your link supplied is the on board graphics.
( uses the intel 945 chipset )

using this disconnect the grpahics card and un-plug the leads from the psu.

Also on the back of your PSU could you check which voltage is visible on the selector switch.

AC power in look to the right, small red switch... i notice your in the states so you should have it set to 115v?

Make sure its fully switched to correct volts.

Other than that im afraid im at a loss mate.

Could try removing the mobo from your chassis and check theres no shorting against the case or standoffs.

Take a look closly at the capacitors.. ay swelled or popped.. no black marks on the solder..etc... Obv do all this with the power supply disconnected and dont touch the capacitors with your fingers could hold some stored voltage.!

Good luck. :)

Hmmm... There's no VGA port on my computer. Odd.
Yea I'm using 115V

I guess I'll just... sit.
In my room.
With no computer.
No counter strike matches.
Forfeit all of them.
Because no one could help.
I guess so. :(

Any of the jumpers on ur mobo from case come loose ?

Or is there a 110/240 Volt switch on back of psu?

Your best bet is to remove the psu and mobo from case and (put mb on table) try from there just to make sure power is going in/working.
