00 Q code IX Formula

Hi everyone!

This is my first post here so please forgive me if I place it in the wrong place. I have looked everywhere for my problem but I haven´t found a situation like mine on any forum.

I recently finished my second PC build (the first one was an x99 beast for my father, which still works perfectly). After putting everything together, I booted up, installed windows from a USB stick and performed all the updates. While I was downloading steam and other programs, the computer completely froze (not even task manager showed up). So I held down the power button till it shut down. I turned it back on and while I was on the "Windows is updating screen" it froze again.

I once again turned it off, then back on, but this time I did't get any displayport signal.
All the LEDs, on the motherboard, fans gpu, and case were working fine. All the fans, AIO cooler also worked fine, however, I was getting any signal on the display port.

I am also getting a "00" qcode on the motherboard.

Things that I have tried:
1. I tried connecting directly to the motherboard displayport instead of the gpu's
2. I tried an HDMI cable instead
3. I tried removing and swaping RAM sticks
4. Unplugging psu for a while and plugging back in

I don´t know what else to do. The thing that confuses me most is that everything was working fine and it suddenly just stopped working.

My Parts:

Motherboard: Asus IX Formula
CPU: i7 7700k
RAM: 2x16 Corsair Vengeance Red LED 3000mhz
PSU: Corsair HX850i
GPU: Asus Strix 1080 ti OC
SSD: Samsung 960 evo 500gb
AIO: Corsair H100i V2

I really apreciate your help!

  1. Try testing different power supply with only CPU and CPU cooler installed. If the radiator fans do spin and still 00, then I'd RMA both board and CPU.

    Hi! Thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately that is the only PSU I have in hand. If I recall correctly, all the fans seemed to work fine, as well as lights and even my headset and keyboard are getting power through USB so I discarded the PSU as source of the problem (I might be completely wrong though).

    I read that it could be that I screwed the CPU cooler too tight so I'm going to try reinstalling both the CPU and cooler. If that doesn´t work I guess I'll RMA the board and CPU
