I had a little worrying time when assembling my new C2D system today, I thought the CPU was duff but a little searching said to try bumping my RAM voltage up (from default 1.8 to the 2.2 written on the DDR2 module itself) and then all was OK.

Guys,

Just tested it again to no avail. It powers on fine with no CPU, fans spin etc although when the CPU is seated it simply powers on for a split second before powering itself off. To me this says that the PSU, RAM and Motherboard are all fine, and it is the CPU itself that is faulty. I made a quick video to show exactly what I mean:

I guess I'll have to RMA the CPU again, shouldn't Ebuyer have picked up on this though???

edit: is there any way to up the RAM voltage without access to BIOS?

Doesn't help that you don't have the heatsink on! ;)
That could be a factor, unless it doesn't boot with it on.

I hate when you get this kinda problem.

dont ever turn a computer on w/o the heatsink on it. maybe thats why it isnt booting, its turning off because its overheating

It doesn't boot regardless of whether the heatsink is on or not, I only had it off to demonstrate what happens

I just had a message back from ebuyer suggesting that I may have left out the "P4 cable" which supplies additional CPU power. I've never come across this before and AFAIK I haven't seen any additional power cable. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Cheers

Most modern PSU's come with a P4 power connector strapped on to the ATX power cable. It looks kinda the same but with only 4 connectors.

Check out this link which will provide a bit of a better explanation. Refer to the pic with '4 Pin Molex P4 12V Power Connector' next to it.
