Red Cpu light M5A99X

Hello all, I am trying to build my first ever computer.

Specs are
Fx -8350
ASUS M5A99X Mobo
Corsair Vengeance 2x 4 GB DDR3 1600 MHZ

I am currently recieving a red CPU light. All other red leds on mobo are out. (Note i am getting power to the video card, and the green mobo light is on) I am highly frustrated and cannot even get monitor signal, so bios are off limits. I have powered on and off multiple times via power supply.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

  1. Best answer
    Just to confirm, all cables are plugged in where they are supposed to be, right? (CPU, Motherboard, etc)

    If they are, try moving your RAM to different slots and see if that helps.
  2. Figured it out~ missed second EATX connector (opposite sides of board).
  3. Glad you got it! :)
