New build not starting! Help troubleshooting! Green LED Asus z87I-Deluxe

Hey everyone,

So I finally finished building my 2nd HTPC but it won't start up. I tried the PSU on my other computer and it started fine. I tried the ram on my old computer and it started fine. I tried switching out the SSD and nothing start. I also disconnected the GPU in case that has something to do with it. I'm at a loss. Is it the mobo? The cpu? I appreciate your help!

My set up:
ASUS Z87I-Deluxe Motherboard
Lian-Li PC-Q08B Case
Cooler Master Seidon 120M Liquid Cooler
EVGA 600B 600W PSU (100-B1-0600-KR)
Gygabite GTX 770 (GV-N770OC-4GD)
Intel i5-4670K 3.4GHz CPU
Kingston HyperX DDR3 8 GB
LG UH12NS30 Bluray Drive
Seagate 600 Series 240GB SSD (ST240HM000)
3 x Seagate Backup Plus 4 TB
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OS

Update: Also the water cooler LED doesn't light up so it isn't receiving power, right?

  1. Alright,

    So was the PSU connected during all the other tests (ram and ssd switch)?

    I have a feeling you may have accidentally forgot to flip the switch on the back in the right direction :)
  2. No, I made sure the psu was on. The LED on the asus mobo lights up but it won-t start. I tried switching out the ssd and ram and I got nothing :(
  3. Picture of the area of concern please (CPU, Mobo).

  5. Thanks for all the help! Unfortunately, I think it's the motherboard. I went though the entire troubleshooting checklist above and still it won't boot. I went to check the CPU and I think I discovered the problem. I accidentally got thermal compound on the mobo and I think that is what caused the short. I am returning the mobo for a new one. We'll see if that fixes it.
  6. An update in case anyone was wondering. I got my new Mobo in the mail and everything started up perfectly. However I am not having issues with the supplied drivers. It is causing my PC to crash and reboot.
