MSI 6870 reference
2x2GB G. Skill Ripjaws CL9 1600MHZ
Seasonic M12 700W
2x WD Caviar Blue (MainOS: 320GB, Storage: 500GB)
Built this a week ago (parts are used). PSU Fan is clogged with what seems to be black dust (previous owner was a smoker?) - should I attempt to clean this crap out? Any guides on how to? I don't want to screw up something as delicate as a PSU.
Problem: Computer only turns when I unplug the 24 pin connector and plug it back in. It then says that the BIOS needs to be setup again.
Also, before I attempt to turn on the computer, the EPU and VPU green lights are on.
Also, when sometimes when I try to change the multiplier and bclk, it changes back to what it was before. e.g., I want to change the bclk to 100.0 from 103.0. As soon as I press enter, it changes back to 103.0. Same goes for multiplier. ATM, I don't have an aftermarket H50 (waiting on 1155/6 brackets and 2 fans for push/pull on my h50 to arrive. Until then, stock hsf .
What do you guys recommend? Should I take apart my computer and assemble it again? Make sure that the leads on the PSU are put in correctly (modular)?
Cheers for reading
