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.

Sorry for the thread revival but this post is the whole reason I joined this site.

The same thing is happening to my buddies setup that he just built...

MSI Z87 MPOWER Max
i5 4670k
8gbx2 of 1600mhz ddr3 PNY ram
Thermaltake 850w PSU Corsair gs700 PSU

So the story goes that he hooked up everything correctly and the machine turned on for a second then immediately off (exactly as described above). Being the new pc builder that he was, he stuck a PCI-E 6 pin cord into the remaining 8 pin cpu atx female port on the mobo (which I have never seen before. I guess it's for extreme voltage with ln2 cooling?). This caused it to fail while making his PSU smoke and die.

The PSU was for sure dead so we went out and purchased another one, the Corsair gs700w. When we hooked everything back up, the issue picked up right where it left off. The thing just turns on for not even a second then immediately powers down. We tried it simply with the 8 and 24 pin atx plugged up to the mobo, same issue. Removed the ram, same issue. Took out the cpu, same issue.

Sadly we don't have a way to test the cpu but I can let him borrow some of my memory to test.

I thought for sure that he had blown his mobo when originally describing it to me. The fact that it was doing this BEFORE the PSU failure makes me think that isn't it though.

"...hooked up everything correctly..."

 "...he stuck a PCI-E 6 pin cord into the remaining 8 pin cpu atx female port..."

 If that's true then it's not the same problem the OP had. Obviously if he did what is stated in the second statement then the first statement is not true.

 Anyway if you are asking for help/advice then start your own topic instead of resurrecting/hijacking this topic.

I think you read into my post a little too much.

You are correct but BEFORE he plugged up the PCI-E to the extra CPU atx, the exact same issue was occurring. I might have questioned it if there was anything even minimally different after the new PSU, but it's the exact same. The old PSU obviously malfunctioned but the system itself seemed to show no signs of change.

I actually made the same mistake years ago with my intel core 2 duo. It seemed to fry my hdd but the rest of the system was fine. I guess it could just be chance on what does and doesn't die in the process. Point still is that his seems unchanged though.

Recommend a new detailed thread of your own including all of the systems components. The MPower and the MPower Max are not the same board as the OP to begin with. They do not share the same UEFI/BIOS's, etc..

Okay, I'll do that then. Thanks to both of you!
