Would a standard ATX PSU work with a W2600CR2 mobo?

Jump to solution

Hello all, for the past month I've been trying to get a new workstation build going but nothing seems to work. The LED diagnostics doesn't say much either and I've tried replacing most parts but it just goes to blinking amber and then solid amber with only the LSB lit. No video output whatsoever so I'm working blind here.

I assume the PSU is the problem but Intels support couldn't say much, but can you guys see anything obviously wrong? Here's the speccs:

Intel Workstation Board W2600CR2 (PBA: G59236-301)

Dual E5-2660v2

4x 4Gb Registered ECC PC3-10600

Corsair AX1200 PSU (No PMBus)

As a sidenote, the PDF over the board mentions an internal VGA connection-slot. I did buy the parts separately so does anyone know if you can buy an adapter to normal VGA somewhere? I assume it might have some basic information even if VGA via a PCIe card doesn't show anything. Yes, I'm trying everything I can think of.

Thank you.

Hello Convery,

 

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Technical Support.

 

 

Answering your first question, it is possible to use standard ATX PSU with the W2600CR2. However, here the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/sb/520836_configuration... Configuration Guide where you can find components for your system.

 

 

The amber light helps to have a more accurate diagnosis during an issue. Here the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/sb/g34153004_s2600ip_w2... Technical Product Specification, in page 125 you will find System Status LEDs.

 

 

Now about the video output, let me suggest getting Chassis Maintenance Kit [http://ark.intel.com/products/60237/Chassis-Electrical-Maintenance-Kit-FUPLESK-for-Intel-Server-Chas... FUPLESK]. In this kit you can find included: 1x front video cable, one 14 pin header to one DB15 header, 1100m.
