Hey building up my PC here and running into a bit of problem.
its specs are 780i mobo , qx9650 processor, no ram at moment, geforce 6600 gfx (to be replaced soon).
Now problem is when i turn it on without the CPU, the mobo comes on and everything works fine.
When i put the CPU it starts for a second and comes off.
Also not sure if this makes a difference i am using a liquid cooling system which won't use the originial fan not sure if that would be the cause of the computers sudden shut down.
no wasn't expecting to have windows load or anything
i am just watching the internal behaviour. It was working aka fan spinning and led's lighting when i press the power button and when i put in the CPU it just starts for a second and fan's and LED's just drop dead for some reason i think that should not happen ( sarcasm).
