So, I install my mobo, gpu, cpu, psu and RAM and proceed to do a POST test. However, my mobo LED came on along with all my fans and case LEDS but there was no POST beeps. I even tried doing a RAM test and took out both sticks and powered up but still nothing. Everything has lead to either a dead cpu or a dead mobo. But, I'd like some other opinions before I try to send anything back. Also I ran compatibility check on the CPU and MOBO several times though I'd appreciate it if somebody could double check it.
Could be a bad batch of something. you know what things are mode of these days lol. the factories use the cheapest componets they can get there hands on. i think that the Ram cards being at 1600MHz maybe too much for the motherboard. i have had heaps of experience of ram failing or dying and its annoying! the 78 isnt a bad board but i think the ram is not compatible.
So my problem was first of all, I didn't have the cpu power plugged in. Second of all, my video card was keeping it from booting somehow. I still get no beeps but when I have my monitor plugged into the onboard graphics I am able to see it boot. I'm not sure if I need to make a new thread but is there anyway to tell if I am installing the video card improperly?
