So where do I start? I'm a first time PC builder & I decided to build my own Gaming PC to my liking, but when I had received the components and began assembling the build, I came across a problem... Nothing works or moves..

Everything is plugged in right and should be running but it's not.

Specs are:

Mobo: Gigabyte G41M-Combo
CPU: i5 4670K LGA1150
Graphics Card: Gigabyte Geforce GTX650Ti
RAM: 2x8GB Geil EVO Potenza
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO
Case: NZXT 410 Full Case
PSU: Corsair CX750M
And 1x2TB HDD

Any suggestions would be awesome! :)

Were you actually able to fit the cpu in the mobo?

Check the cpu, you might have bent some of the pin.

You can try to return them, but they may not accept it because it w user error.

I just checked the CPU and its fine, still looking as if it came out of the box. I'm pretty sure the motherboard is dead (smells like somethings burning) So I've turned everything off and chucked it, Now I need some suggestions for motherboards that support the CPU and are overclockable?

thanks

Usually burning smell is from the psu...

But the power supply was only on for 5 seconds and thats when I realised that nothing worked, could it of burnt itself out?

Not sure... Smell the individual parts and see what smells.

As for OC, most mobos today support overclocking. Just be sure too find the right socket. Also if you find you psu did burn out, there is a chance it could have affected your hdd. When you get your build straightened out, and start it up, if it blue screens and crashes, your hdd is probably dead.

The burning smell is coming from the 14pin PSU connector that I had attached to the Mobo... doesnt smell good either

Hmm, I would try to return you psu and make the case it was DOA, I wouldn't risk another mobo.

Also the CX series aren't the most reliable, try for HX is you're going with corsair.

I'll ask them for a swap because I've still got factory warranty for 12 months

The pins are on the motherboard now, not on the CPU... Just have to hope he didn't short out the CPU because of the pin alignment.

When I get the right motherboard and get everything working I'll try on my monitor and test, as for the parts that are still okay i'll just reuse them and everything should be working. If the HDD is dead then I'll get another because it only cost me $60 AUD off Ebay.

I would venture to say it is highly unlikely your PSU burned up being on for 5 seconds. As far as a motherboard, for OCing, you want something with the Z87 chipset.

Yes, but if it did, it could short another mobo. If he sends it in with warranty, it will give him a new one, free of charge, with lower risk of shorting it.
