I think I see your problem. In the image power_cables.jpg, the white power connector labeled "P2" looks out of place. My board came with a ATX 24 pin-to-4 pin adapter that is plugged in where your P2 is currently connected. P2 is plugged into the rightmost half of the 8-pin connector where the...
Oh, it definitely worked in releases prior to the latest currently posted on Asrock's site. I'm somewhat glad to see I'm not alone. I do have to admit that this has been one rather buggy board right out the gate.
Has any one encountered an issue with the System Inventory data being blank post-upgrade on this release of BIOS & BMC firmware? No Processor, Memory Controller, PCIe Device / Function, or Storage data is shown. Fan information, however, is being reported?
I'm not using a 12V-only power supply. The PSU included with my Supermicro CSE-721TQ-250B2 chassis has two 4-pin 12V connectors, but only #2 of the 2nd 8-pin connector can be used - #3 is not keyed the same as #2. I used the 24-to-4 pin connector included with the board in #1 (see picture)...
I'm in the United States and ordered my board from Newegg. According to Asrock's support, the cable is not included in retail packaging. I never did get a response as to which SKUs did include the cable and how much extra they charged for the additional part.
The fan surprisingly stays put when I turn the chassis upside down. Though I would prefer a more permanent mounting solution, it's "good enough" for home lab purposes.
I ordered mine from the Supermicro eStore - CBL-SAST-0933
The heatsink itself measures 70 mm wide x 70 mm deep x 25 mm in height. Screw holes are 60 mm x 60 mm on center.
I used a Nocuta NF-A6x25 fans (60 mm)blowing into the stock heatsink. Use the supplied rubber mounting nubs to friction hold it in place over each each heatsink screw.
It appears to be the case. I couldn't find 2666 modules at the density I wanted, so I opted for the 2933 modules thinking the memory controller would simply downclock to 2666. BTW, going into the memory overclock settings in the BIOS and setting the clock speed to match a 2666 module ended up...
