Hi all!

I have an MSI 864PE-Neo2 m\board and after installing it into a new case and attaching my Radeon 9200SE videocard upon powering the PC up the system speaker starts going off like a siren(constant high,low,high,low)? Even the heatsink next to the CPU fan flashes red and blue! I have not done nothing to this board other than transfer it to the new case with all parts staying attached and i'm using the same PSU as b4 and the video card works on my K8S-LA board no probs?

Hope someone can help?

You may have dislodged the cpu's heatsink when you transferred the board. The two-toned siren error is cpu overheat. Redo the paste with Arctic Silver or another good quality thermal paste, and make sure that the heatsink is firmly mounted, there should be no moverment at all when installed, needs to be rock solid, as they say.

Yeah that sound about right as i did hold it by the heatsink and PCI slots to remove it in my efforts not to touch the actual board! They don't give u much to hold onto do they? Maybe they should design some sort of handle system??

I'm experienced in thermal paste application to heatsink\CPU's and have some Zalman ZM-STG1 thermal paste on hand that has worked previously so shouldn't have a prob!

Thanks!
