E8500 ati4850 gigabyte mobo 4g corsair pcp + c 610w 640g 7200rpm WD hdd big arse pcu cooler
I just got done assembling my first comp with the parts that many of you were so kind to help me pic out but when I power up the unit all the lights/fans and mobo leds come up but only stays on for apx 8 seconds, shuts off for 8 seconds and continues this on off on off on off cycle. I have checked connectors and everything appears tight and correct.
Where do I start?
Getting four leds on mobo (red, orange, green, green). One red led on GPU all leds and fans *including cooler* come on and spin. Optical drive led comes on. 4 pin power connector on mobo connected. Intermittenly only stays on for apx 2 seconds and shuts off for 8. More consistantly 8 on 8 off...

1. Try starting with 2GB 2. Take of ide dvd-rw drive....? 3. 4850 has power connected??
I'd check to make sure the cooler is on correctly. Pull it off, check the footprint of the thermal grease, reattach it.
