ASUS P8Z68-V Build Problem

I have a friend who is building a computer with an ASUS P8Z68-V with an i7 CPU and 8GB of RAM and a EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR along with a GeForce GTX 460. With all the comments plugged in, we power it up and all the fans turn on along with the lights, it powers on for about 3 sec. then all the fans and light turn off, then they turn on again. We get no BIOS on the screen even when using the VGA plug on the motherboard. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

  1. what is your PSU?
    have you applied thermal paste on the cpu?
    which cooler you have?
  2. The power supply is a CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V, we are using the Paste that came with the CPU fan along with the heat sinks that came with the motherboard.
  3. it's ok...remove out the cpu carefully along with ram's for a while also check the pins of the cpu then put it back and try.
  4. Hey, we did what you said, we didn't see any problems with the pins on wither component. However we are still having the same problem.
  5. 8 pin EPS cable plugged into MoBo ?

    CPU fan plugged into CP header on MoBo ?

    Memory in correct slots ? Read the Manual.....Asus usually 2nd and 4th from CPU

    GFX Card connected to PSU ?

    Take 2nd GFX card out of the equation.
  6. Checked everything you said, and took out the card, still the same problem.
  7. Also as a note, we have just seen the red CPU LED turn on, it does not blink it is solid.

    ok.. take a test of your mobo follow what i say.
    1.take out all of ram sticks then start your pc if you hear the "BEEP" sound continously then your mobo is ok.if you didn't hear any sound then you have dead mobo.
    2.after that test insert all of the rams remove the heatsink then start your pc and touch your finger with processor if it get hot quickly then your mobo is ok if not then mobo is dead.
  9. Im having the same problem. Eventually mine stayed on but still reboots ramdonly. I didn't do anything to correct it. I pressed on the memok button, it cycled acouple of times and then stayed on. Try that.
  10. Try and connect just what u need to power it on. PCI express, 8 pin and 24 pin and see if it stays on. Yes it wont detect a harddrive but just see it it stays on. If it does then it might be one of your harddrives. Check for any shorts somewhere.
