After I hook everything up I can't seem to get this build to display anything, the monitor just stays on standby and doesn't react to the computer coming on. I checked the CPU including the pins on the motherboard. I checked the ram and it is compatible with the motherboard. I tried to push the memory OK button but there is no response. Can't seem to figure out what is going wrong here as everything is in place and installed securely.
Have you checked the PSU voltages? This type of issue can occur if the ATX CPU connector isn't connected or if it doesn't get +12v. Did you test it outside of the case before assembling it? A short to a standoff could also cause that issue.
