Hello community,
Having a problem firing up my new parts i just bought, it starts for a split second then shuts down immediately. I was using a core 2 duo E8500 with my GT285 and Antec 550W and it was working fine.
Since I bought this i7 yesterday cant get it started.

Hi there, thanks for the reply, Ive got a GA-EX58-UD3R motherboard Just bought it yesterday. Ill check to see wether they support the i7 they should since its the LGA 1366 for intel i7's processor family.

Thanks for the advice, I actually couldnt go into the bios setup at all, would not even start up even for 1 second.
In the end went to the local shop and bought a Corsair 750 Watt HX Model. Put in on and that did the trick. No problems within the last week at all. Really not sure as to why the 500 watt Antec TP model didnt work as I was reading the forums and some people were using the same setup as me with that cpu.

Hi Renzo2009,

The Antec TP 500w should definitely be able to run your i7 930 system. Did you double check and make sure that everything is plugged in correctly? I know its a little too late now since you've purchased the Corsair HX 750 but if your Antec TP 500W is still under warranty, you can submit a ticket our customer support team and they will figure out what the problem is and will determine if your TP 500w needs to be replaced.

Does Antec make a TruePower 500W PSU or is it a 550W PSU? Maybe that was his issue, since Antec shorted him 50 watts.

[:mousemonkey:5] ... Just joking around!! I'm love my Antec 1200 case and my last build was with an Antec 300 Illusion, so I have nothing against Antec.
