Can my CPU stop video signal

I changed every piece of my pc except my CPU to figure out what's happening to it. I don't have any integrated graphics to change anything and I used my old graphics card to see if it was the gpu and still nothing I reset the CMOS and reseated my Ram, and I wanna know if it's plausible for the CPU to stop the video signal. No post also

Specs-
970A Krait Edition
FX 8320E
GTX 960
4gb Ram ddr3
120gb ssd
600B Evga psu

  3. If its not a new build then it was a working computer before? Go back to the beginning. Was this build working then it crashed and now it won't boot? What were you doing when it crashed?

    The build was working before. I changed the parts cause the PC wouldn't turn on btw. I was rendering a video to test what my pc could handle

  5. Ok so it failed during rendering video, you said you have since replaced every part except the CPU? SO right now you're running a completely new build except the CPU?

    Yeah but I have the same ssd and ram after I realized that they weren't problem

  7. I think it was probably the PSU failing or something like that. It could also have been the RAM as bad ram will cause a no POST condition.

    However when assembling the system over again you may have bent a pin on the CPU which could do this as well. I would check for that.

    The pins aren't bent I just checked.

  9. CPU not functioning yes could cause no video. Being that you replaced everything else....

    However a CPU failing is EXTREMELY rare.

    Can you try this. Disconnect everything, have just the CPU, GPU and 1 stick of ram connected to the motherboard, nothing else, and remove it from the case. See if it boots. Try with the new ram if the old ram doesn't work.

  11. If both RAMs don't work then I would say, your CPU failed.

    Can you return all the new stuff you bought? This is your opportunity to upgrade.
