I completed a new comp build with the following components:
Fractal R4 white
Dark rock Pro 2 cpu cooler
Maximus VI Hero motherboard
Asus gtx770 DCII gpu
120 gb ssd and 1tb hdd
Seasonic g750 psu
Ballistic 16gb ram
Asus MX239H monitor
First I had a msi z87-g45 mobo, but since this did not work out great I decided to go with the asus mobo, and I am not disapointed of the quality, much better then the msi one. I completed my build yesterday evening and didnt had time to install windows yet, but two things I noticed:
1. Led from power button goes on and then blinks and goes off, but everything starts up fine. Maybe loose connection ill check that to be sure when I get home.
2. When the mobo is turned of the red light keep on, this is normal I read on forums. U can only have the option always on or always off. But what bothers me is the fact that when I turn the pc off, I get a high pitched whine. One thing that I did not had when I had the msi mobo. So I am thinking it must be the mobo. Is this something that has to do with powering the red leds that stay on? When I turn my psu switch off the whining goes away, and when I switched the psu on this morning the lights stayed off and no whine at that moment.
Since I just got it yesterday I can switch the mobo for a new one easily, just need to know if this might be a faulty mobo or not. I note, just to be sure, that I did not install windows yet, well I do have it isntalled but need to reinstall for the new mobo. But I havent went into windows yet just into the bios mode. Since I did not had time yesterday evening to reinstall all. When I get home I do want to start finsihing the install, but just to be sure I post it on this forum. That what it is here for after all right . Before I waste any time if this turns out the be a faulty bord.
This is a quick post from my work so I am sorry if I left any info out or mistyped some stuff.
Thank you all in advance for your help!
