Hey guys I built a new rig and I have run out of hope on it... Every time I start it up it turns off after about a second. Then it turns back on for two seconds. Then it starts up for real and then stay on after that. I do not have a GPU in it yet. (Back ordered 970) Is this due to that? I doubt it but I am running out of ideas. I have plugged in and out basically everything to check for loose connections. Any help would be amazing. Thank you :)

Well, I see you got it fixed, but I'll say what I thought anyway. My board used to do that too, it would start up, shut down, start up and boot normally running POST twice for some reason it had something to do with the J Micron controller whatever the hell that is, I disabled it in BIOS and it stopped.

idk. It always popped up something about Jmicron controller before it ran through its 2nd restart. As far as I can gather, it has something to do with 2 of the SATA ports on the Sabertooth board, beyond that, I honestly don't know, and can't say I cared enough to find out lol.

Usually these symptoms occur on mbs with a dual BIOS

The first BIOS chip tries to start the hardware and fails .
It tries again and fails
On the third successful attempt its the second BIOS posting

FIX : reinstall the BIOS
