My first build SUCKED!!! Computer would not boot and I smelt something funny. I took it to the local PC shop and they told me it was the MOBO. I RMAed it to newegg, got another one and same problem. I went to a different PC shop they said mother board again. I RMAed that one and same problem. I took it to a third PC shop and they said motherboard.
So at that point I really looked over everything myself. I saw the 2 parts of the CPU were solid black. Lucky me Newegg RMAed to CPU too. Got a new one and everything worked. I guess nextime I will make 100% sure the Heatsink/Fan is 100% on
