Hi, i finally managed to get all the parts for my pc build but when it came to booting it the first time, it got to a screen with the asus logo on saying press f2 or del to enter uefi bios, nothing happens then it goes to a screen listing my specs and says american megatrends and says cpu fan error even though it is fully functional then it says press f1 to continue then when i do the screen goes blank. I'm sure the fan works but is just on a low rpm.

specs
mobo: m5a97 LE r2.0
cpu: fx-6300
gpu: radeon hd 5770
ram: corsair value select 2x 2gb

Did you plug in the CPU fan power connector to the motherboard?

You should refer to your motherboard manual for the motherboard BIOS beep code definitions.

Well, you are also running a 970 motherboard with a Vishera CPU. There is a known compatibility issue here and you may need a BIOS update. If you just so happen to have an older AMD cpu that is compatible with the motherboard socket, you may need to drop it in, update the bios, then switch to the vishera CPU.

It's extremely difficult to update the mobo BIOS without a working CPU, so you may need to either find another cheap compatible CPU, or return the motherboard.

Well, if that's not it I don't know what to say. The GPU and RAM is obviously working or you wouldn't see a post screen at all.

I am lead to believe it's either the 1) Motherboard, 2) CPU, or compatability thereof.

The PSU, GPU, and RAM see to work, what else could it be?

The only other thing I can think of is for whatever reason your motherboard is not providing enough power to the CPU fan, and it's creating an error and shutting off. Maybe you can plug the CPU fan directly into the PSU. Otherwise I am fresh out of ideas.

I sorted it, it was plugged into a chasis fan slot, apparently the one which has cpu fan next to it isnt actually the 3pin socket for the fan, sorry for wasting your time and thanks for the help, i appreciate it. :)
