I'm not even sure where this question would fit in better, so I'll just put it inside 'Motherboards & Memory' as it might cover everything.
So, these are the parts i just brought today:
*Corsair 2x2GB DDR3, 1600 mhz, CL9, XMS3, rev. A
*CPU i5 2500k
*Cooler Arctic Cooling Freezer 13
*SSD Corsair Force series 60GB SATA-II 2.5 inch
This wasn't the first system I assembled so I could say I know my way around decently. However, for about 4 hours I couldn't get it to POST at least.
Problem: I press the power button, the CPU fan spins for ~1 second then stops and nothing else happens.
-the power led on the mobo is powered on
-the hdd/power indicators on the chassis blinks for a second and then stop
I have tried:
-try to boot with the basics plugged in: 2gb ram, cpu, fan, ATI HD4890, 24 pin and 8 pin PSU connectors plugged into the mobo (so no fans, HDDs, peripherals)
-boot by touching the power pins on the mobo with a screwdriver
Anyone has any ideas about what else could cause it? I know for a fact that the PSU was working on the previous computer about 30 minutes before moving it.
Please help if you know something!
