I'ma start off with my specs

SEAGATE 500GB Desktop Hard Drive

Intel CORE i7-920 CPU Processor 2.66 GHz

Rosewill R223-P-BK 120mm Fan ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500

Ok this has been taking me forever to try and figure out. i have a MSI X58M Mobo and when i start up my PC it turns on for 30 secs and reboots so i tried taking off the fan and when i did that it booted up every 10 secs. So i knew that there was a overheating problem right than and there because i tried everything that they said to do in that sticky thread. I tried everything, i don't know what could be the problem. I unhooked everything and put it back together and still nuthing. Can someone please give me some help. Thanks.

Do you have overclocking settings in BIOS?
Have you checked memory timing, etc., in BIOS?
CPU fan properly seated with thermal paste?
Is airflow unobstructed?
Is RAM in the correct slots for 2 sticks?

What happens if you disconnect drives and any (unnecessary for testing) expansion hardware?

Have you tried with 1 stick of RAM? No RAM?

I can't even get to the BIOS because it keeps on rebooting.

CPU is seated on the thermal paste

airflow is not unobstructed

I have tried with both sticks, 1 stick, and also no sticks.

When i disconnect any drive it does the same thing

I hope that the grease is between the CPU and the Heatsink.

Edit: have you connected the power source to the CPU. It's a four pin connector and normally has two black and two yellow wires.

Don't try to run it

by Jacky Howe In reply to Thermal paste?

until you have cleaned off the old residue with a cotton cloth from the top of the CPU and the bottom face of the Heatsink. Arctic Silver is a good brand and it should be applied sparingly each and every time that the Heatsink is removed. Each tube that I buy is good for 5 applications.

I also notice that there are LEDs for the CPU and Memory. Check your Motherboard manual.
