    [solved] No Power When I add SATA drives

    Problem solved. The error was my own and my fault for not RTFM. I didn't realize I had to only use Seasonic cables. The capes from my corsair PSU are not compatible. Unfortunately I had put them all in one case and they're mixed up. Thank you everyone for you help, much appreciated. Peter

    [solved] No Power When I add SATA drives

    Thanks. I did that. I unplugged them all and started with one at a time. I also switched power cables and tried different ports on the PSU. I didn't try it without a sata cable attached to the mobo. Scratching my head. It's the first time I've tried use a spinner on this system.

    Hi- I have a case of I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I attempted to add a few hard drives to my PC and it wont boot at all. No power or anything. Unplug the sata cable and wait 5 minutes and it boots fine. Here's what I have installed before I tried adding some drives. Seasonic Power Prime...

    :ROFLMAO: :blackalien: Yeah... no need for RGB, but I don't mind black everything since my case is white and black. I just canceled the Master and ordered the UNIFY. I'll probably order that black cooler too. You know. I once drove from Mountain View, Californa with a buddy (he lives in...

    Ok... So the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master is back-ordered until Feb 06, but the unity board is in stock. Should I just switch?

    Is there any different between the two other than $10 and the look?

    That's a great reply from Noctura. I may go with that cooler as well even though AMD recommends water cooling. Not sure if I'll get myself in trouble.

    I ended up going with the Aourus Master. My first build is up and running will transition my stuff today. The only issue I have is that the stock cooler fan seems to be making more noise than expected so I'll have to make sure that's the cause of the whine I hear. Can't handle noise; I always...

    Hey all. Still waiting for my Tomahawk motherboard from BHPhotoVideo. Thank you everyone for your help, I really appreciate. Also I just took the plunge for system number 2. This will be mostly for my DAW workstation and encoding etc. I purchased the Ryzen 9 3950X and all I need now is...

    Does anyone think that 550 80+ power supply is not enough? Just read that my video card needs 450w.

    Not to sound too obtuse, but we're taking about the B450 Tomahawk and not the Max x470, right?

    That MAX is $114 right now and the Asus is $149. I don't see PCIe 4.0 in the near future for me. I've been pretty happy with the performance from SATA SSD's. I'm gathering none of these boards will be compatible with Zen 3? So I figure whatever I get should be adaqueate for the next few years...

    Is that as comparable to the Asus Prime X570-P board? I don't need overkill, but just enough of an upgrade to notice.
