I just did my first build today, I am using a Corsair cx600 psu, a msi 970a-g46 mobo, an amd phenom II x4 processor and a corsair H55 liquid cooling system, when i finally finished my build i attempted to turn it on and there was no video output, i followed the second step in this thread Steps to check before posting
(i felt like an idiot when i realized i hadnt plugged in the cpu power connector) then when i attempted to turn on the computer, it wouldnt respond at all, like it wasnt plugged in, is there a problem with the psu, or is it a short or something else?? it is worth noting that i tried to turn on the computer without the cpu power connector being plugged in after this problem arose

Hi, Is the H55 fan spinning when starting the board?
