So i know this is a lot like the other post, but i still cant seem to fix mine. Everythings brand new, but when i power up, no signal. Im thinking this could be if the 2 power sockets to the video card are wrong? the psu is modular which kind of confused me.

the psu has both 6 and 8 pin 12v3 and 12v4. ive tried all combinations of them, right now ive got both plugged into the 12v4, the 6 and 8 pin. With any other combination the fan on the 4870x2 doesnt run. But ive still got the 3 red lights and no signal :(

i thought i should add that it doesnt post, there are no beeps. (gpu fan not running anymore either) Is this a fault mobo?

The 6 pin and 8 pin connectors should never come from the same rail. That'd pull 225W done a single rail and most multi rail systems have a max rating of 150W (8 pin molex).

Other than that it sounds like either a bust GFX card or motherboard.

Other issues that may cause a no post condition on a new system:

The CPU rail isn't connected or the 8 pin GFX rail is in the 8pin CPU plug.
The memory isn't properly seated.
The CPU isn't properly seated.
The GFX isn't properly seated.

If its non of those its probably something that has broken. Sounds like either GFX or motherboard in all likelyhood.
