Hi, I'm a 1st time builder and avid gamer. I did some researching and came up with this build:

Asus P6T Motherboard
Intel Core i7 960 with a Prolimatech Megahalems Rev B CPU cooler
12 GB Corsair XMS3 Tri
Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 2GB
Creative Labs Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium
Intel X-25 SSD 160 GB Hard Drive
1 TB western digital caviar black
Pioneer BDR-205 Blue ray burner
LG dvdrw drive
Cooler Master HAF 932 Case
Corsair 850 W

I assembled everything according to the manuals and felt pretty good about it. When I plug it in and hit power the LED on the case lights up and all the fans run but that's it. No HD activity, picture or beeps. I tried everything on http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-ste... and am at a loss. Does anyone have a suggestion?

So you tried just 1 stick of RAM and made sure to unseat and reseat everything? You've checked to make sure that everything has power?

If your fans are spinning, your case, and possibly your board have power. If your HDD does not spin, it likely doesn't have power.

I would try to check all the cables and make sure things are seated. I'd boot with just the one stick of RAM again once I had reseated and checked all the power connections.
