MPOWER z87 board shuts down right after boot
« on: 28-June-13, 20:01:27 »

Today i got my msi z87 mpower board, 4x4GB corsair vengeance pro 2133 cl9 ram and a 4770k. I am using my old AX650, which definitely works and the H60 i had.
I can't pass posting, i crash literally within a split second after i press the power button. both 8pins and the 24 pin are  plugged in properly, i removed all RAM besides one, which i moved around the slots as well, i removed the GPU, i reseated the h60 and reapplied the thermal paste, i reseated the cpu, i reseated all cables 4 times. it just doesn't work.
the first time it would run but didn't show an image, after about a minute it turned off completely, after reseating the cables it now crashes immediately. I am completely out of ideas, if you guys don't come up with anything good i will have to RMA :(

Please list all components: >>Posting Guide<<

Try to boot with a single stick of RAM in DIMM 2.
No hard drives or any other parts. Just ram, cpu, cooler, psu.

Prior to the test, re-seat the cpu and inspect the cpu socket pins with a  bight light and magnifying glass or hd zoom.

If it works with the single stick of ram, test each stick by itself in this manner. If they all work then try DIMM 2 & 4 then all of them again.

There really isn't much more to the system atm, i unplugged nearly everything. no ssd, no hdds, no odd, not even peripherals besides a monitor. i use the palit geforce gtx 770 4gb jetstream, but i already used a different gpu to make sure that isn't the problem. i reseated the cpu twice, checked for bent pins etc, no problems. i will go through all of the ram, but i don't have high hopes for that either.

I would also try with onboard vga if applicable and also another PSU or call corsair and make sure the PSU in particular you have works with the Z87 most of them however do.

tried both, to no avail. i put my old ram in the board, 1333 team group elite 4gb, didn't work either. i think i will stop bothering and just RMA both the CPU and the mainboard. i am pretty sure on of them is causing the problems.

I would also verify with Corsair as there are known issues with many pre- z87 mainboards. You can probably tell them the model and s/n and they will let you know.

After that you are most likely correct.

Could well be the universal industry wide PSU compatibility problem rearing it's head. Testing with the discrete graphics card removed and connecting via onboard port is recommended.
