I was able to get the motherboard loading screen, but to make a long story short I had to remove the processor to install a CD drive (I had tried to boot from a flash drive first) and in doing so, removing the heatsink removed the processor along with it and bent the pins. I bought a new one, sat it perfectly and everything including the power LEDS light up and all of the fans are moving. However, the Memok! LED is does not come on and pressing the button doesn't do anything either.
Before I remove the CPU to check for thermal paste that may have blocked pins from installing the new processor (I've read this may cause no post issues), I would like to know if there is anything else I can check that will get this rig to boot properly.
